4.0 out of 5 stars Cannibal Ferox 14 Jun 2005
By Stoker
Ok, lets get this straight. The uk vipco version of this movie is heavily cut. The NTSC GRINDHOUSE release is totally uncut, great transfer and packed with extras. So, its quite simple. BUY the GRINDHOUSE release. Ignore the UK disc. Goodnight.

3.0 out of 5 stars GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER.... 11 Aug 2003
Another "so bad it's good" video nasty classic now available on dvd! "Cannibal ferox" was written and directed by Italian Umberto Lenzi and filmed on location in New York and South America. It was originally released in 1981, two years after the excellent "Cannibal holocaust", which many people consider to be the pinnacle of the "cannibal" genre. Personally I prefer "Ferox" to "Holocaust", mainly because the latter tries a little too hard to be a "proper" movie, while "Ferox" has no such pretensions and just gets on with delivering the gore by whatever cheap and nasty means are required.

The film actually starts off in NYC, with the rather annoying subplot which serves as an intermittent and completely pointless distraction throughout the film, and involves gang members (and later police) searching for a missing drug dealer who has run away with their money. All of a sudden we switch to South America, just as three young explorers (Gloria, the leader, plus her brother Rudy and friend Pat) are about to set off into the jungle.

They don't believe in cannibals! In fact, this is a research trip to help Gloria finish her thesis, which seeks to prove that cannibalism is a myth. Little do they know....

After a series of minor disasters and encounters with the local natives and wildlife they eventually bump into two other Americans, Mike and Joe, who tell them they've escaped from some cannibals that killed (and partly consumed) a friend of theirs. Our three well-meaning innocents believe them at first, and before long they all arrive at the cannibals' village, which is temporarily safe due to the fact that most of its inhabitants have left.

2.0 out of 5 stars CANNIBAL FEARNOT! 30 Mar 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Unfortunately most viewers will be disappointed with this release of a previously banned film. Despite recent advertisements on television, there I was thinking that at last Cannibal Ferox had been released "uncut". Sadly only the edited version has managed to hit our streets, a whole ten minutes missing from the original tapes. Little gore and very little happening in this version of the Amazon romp. Blood and gore fans will be extremely miffed that Umberto Lenzi's cult classic has hit us in this form.

Charting the (mis) adventures of college researchers and drug runners in Amazonia, this a foul and obnoxious film, notable only for its extreme violence. Unfortunatly, this British release has had over seven minutes censored which renders the film a bady acted and tedious bore. Ok, so John Morgen gives his usual psychotic performance and the use of locations is good, but lets face it, you watch this sort of film for the nasty bits. And thanks to over the top pre-censorship cutting by the distributor, there aren't any here worth sitting through the rest for. In it's uncut version it lives up to the hype as 'the most violent film ever made', but not here. Get Zombie Flesh Eaters instead, much more satisfying !!!

The UK edition of this great movie has been heavy censored and many of the most brutal scenes taken away, to leave an unfinished and pretty dull film.
Ok, so much of the gore still remains, however if you wish to see it all, even the bits where scrotems are cut off and ate and a woman is hung up by her nipples with the region 1 edition.

3.0 out of 5 stars Maybe I watched the wrong version? 27 Jan 2013
I recently watched Cannibal Holocaust and, in some strange way, actually enjoyed it. I'd heard that Cannibal Ferox was similar, so I thought I'd give that one a go too.

Ferox has the tagline `banned in 31 countries' on the front and all I can say is that, now it appears to have got a mainstream release, they must have taken a lot of it out. The version I saw ran at about 83 minutes and was not just bad, but pretty tame.

The plot centres around a budding scientist, dragging her brother and her friend to the Amazon in order to prove that cannibalism doesn't exist. Once they get there, they meet the most psychotic drug dealer there is and decide it would be a good idea to team up with him. Unfortunately, said dealer has slaughtered half a tribe of natives around here in pursuit of some emeralds. And, guess what, the natives want their revenge.

I couldn't really see why some people seem to enjoy this. Even if it had its full compliment of gore, it was pretty awful. The acting was bad (okay, so horror films never normally have Oscar-worthy performances in, but this went even lower than normal); it was almost as if they were trying to be over-the-top and bring a parody edge to it (not that I can find any actual evidence to back this up - it just seemed this way).

The `heroes' are too stupid to like (and that's just the most likeable ones!), the drug dealers are the type you want to see eaten alive.

And, while these hapless souls are trudging through muddy swamps in the Amazon, there's a subplot about the police in New York trying to track down one of the dealers. This wasn't necessary, as, by now, you're probably gagging for whatever `pay-off' is going to come at the end of the film. When it does come, it's over before it gets going.
