4.0 out of 5 stars interesting Spanish horror
This was a video nasty back in the day when people fussed over such things, but I don't know why, as it is actually quite a well made melodrama with a few horror elements thrown in for good measure, and is quite tame. Despite the title, there isn't really a cannibal man running around loose in this one, but a factory worker who acidentally kills a guy after an argument,...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but depressing Spanish horror film
The story..Marcus a slaughterhouse worker who when out one night with his girlfriend kills a taxi driver in self defence. He later strangles her when she insists on telling the police and then kills anyone else who finds out growing madder all the time. Meanwhile he has developed a friendship with his voyeuristic gay neighbour!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but depressing Spanish horror film, 5 Sept. 2007

This review is from: Cannibal Man [DVD] [1972] [US Import] (DVD)
The story..Marcus a slaughterhouse worker who when out one night with his girlfriend kills a taxi driver in self defence.

Meanwhile he has developed a friendship with his voyeuristic gay neighbour!
This early 70's Spanish horror is quite reminiscent of "Don't Go In The House" and "Maniac" and therefore quite a depressing film. Why it's called "Cannibal Man" though is a mystery as it contains no scenes of cannibalism (the bodies are disposed of in a meat grinder). The constant gloomy tone won't be for everyone but it's atmospheric and quite stylishly directed and the gore is good for the time. Slow in parts but this is definitely worth watching if you're a fan of European 70's/80's horrors. 3.5 Stars.

This review is from: Cannibal Man [DVD] [1972] [US Import] (DVD)
This was a video nasty back in the day when people fussed over such things, but I don't know why, as it is actually quite a well made melodrama with a few horror elements thrown in for good measure, and is quite tame. Despite the title, there isn't really a cannibal man running around loose in this one, but a factory worker who acidentally kills a guy after an argument, and then needs to dispose of the body via the canning company he works for- so you get the idea? Then more and more nosey people discover his secret and end up murdered as well. Not bad, but don't expect tons of gruesome murders or people being eaten, as this is more subtle than that.Quite likeable.

2.0 out of 5 stars Crap., 21 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cannibal Man [DVD] [1972] [US Import] (DVD)
As a massive horror enthusiast i embarked on the mission of picking up all of the " video nasties "

I have been watching horrors since a child in the 80's and have to say that this was absolute s***.

Only for hardcore collectors at best but then again that's a bit of a stretch, if you must see it then please do but be warned !!
