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.

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.

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 hooks...buy the region 1 edition.

Vipco have yet again released a gory horror movie only to edit all the best parts. A student sets out to disprove the theory that real cannibals are more than a myth, and ventures deep into the Amazon jungle accompanied by her terribly-acting brother and nymphomaniac friend. They encounter a couple of wounded men who claim to have been attacked by cannibals, and thus begins a downward spiral for the newly formed group as the so-called cannibals pursue and capture them, and then the fun begins, or so I thought. This release is missing ten whole minutes of the original, and every scene thats cut is so blatantly obvious, it just makes you want to scream along with the films victims. The movies box is very misleading, because it says ''Banned in 31 countries'', ''You won't sleep for a week after watching this''. There is no way this version could be banned anywhere, as nearly all violence has been removed, ridiculing the front cover of the film which states ''The Most Violent Film Ever Made''.Some of the cuts I have to agree with, I mean who wants to see animals subjected to wanton cruelty, but the violence towards the human characters is no worse than what you will find in films such as Day of the Dead or Zombie Flesh Eaters, but still this film has been butchered by the censors. All in all however, this is a good film, with a suprisingly good storyline and on the most part fairly decent acting. The musical score is also worth a mention. But if like me, you are looking for a gory movie with the gore intact, avoid this version as very little violence is shown. Search the web for the 4 minute U.S trailer for the movie and you will see all the scenes removed from this version. Only for the cuts made with this version, I would have given it 5 stars.

From all the hype surrounding this title, it had to be seen really didn't it? Gore fans in the UK will be disappointed - as this version is missing key mutilation sequences that made it so notorious. Welcome to free Britain.
On the whole, it is still worth a look, as the story is a patricularly good one and the acting is still very good.
Worth a see, definetly, but try to get your hands on the uncut version first, as a film like this shouldn't really be released without it's shock value.
Worth 4 stars for keeping me on edge, lost one star for losing about 10 minutes worth of cuts.
Shame.

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.
