4.0 out of 5 stars I dont see why everyoine downs this film so much, its an aleright film for its kind!!!!!!, 8 Jan. 2006
This review is from: Cannibal Apocalypse [DVD] (DVD)
There have been so many bad reviews to this little flick and i dont see what al the fuss is about.

In comperation to other 70's and 80's cannibal flicks and b-movies of its kind or mabe even video nastys then this film doesnt rank that incredibly low when you think about it. and if your a real hard core fan then you may, like me, actually enjoy this film.

Yet im not saying its that good either, as it is pretty avaradge really, but it has its points and the groovy music thats completley inapropriate does put a bit of a grin on your face. As well as a few badly done death scenes which are barely bloody but got this film banned do keep you entertained enough to make this film worth watching at least once.

John Saxon is one of 2 familar faces i know of but apart from that the usual default no-body cast is all here.

Another thing which, if you put aside the overall awefulness of this film, is actually okay is the story. Although in many terms its pretty unorigonal and predictable in the long run there are no other cannibal films that are done in such a style as this which are set in the city and this film is more of a thriller if you ask me as it contains a few action film style shooting sequences and is mainly about a bunch og murderes or cannibals in this case, on the run against the cops in the end.

The film is fairly fast paced once it gets going but up until then it can be a little slow at times and dont buy this film expectinga total gore fest either because it really isnt anything too extreme.

Its just that kinda thing that'll entertain the hardened cannibal or budget horror fan.

This DVD is pretty good too as it is cut but all is cut from this is a scene with a burning rat in it and there is a decent region1 version with that still in if your that desperate to see it yet this region2 version has a decent few extras. It may be pretty crappy compared to other films but for its genre youd be lucky to get a trailer in some films of its kind.

I also believe this is one of those films where reviews dont say much as if your a fan or not this film may turn out to be the worsed piece of cinema in history to you yet your mate with an almost identical taste to you may love it. You either love it or hate it.

I think for the price you can get it for now the old school collectopr of these films shouldnt really care about forking out a bit of cash for this as it also looks really cool on the dvd and if you dont like it then you still have a little addiiton to your next hundred dvd's.
