Cannibal Ferox (R2)


A New York grad student and anthropologist Gloria, her brother Rudy, and their friend Pat, travel to a remote part of the Amazon jungle to find and disaprove the local theory of cannibalism among the local tribes when they run into something far worse: a cruel and sadistic, streetwise drug dealer, named Mike Lawson, and his partner, Joe, hiding out in the jungle from murder and drug-dealing charges in back in New York and whom are presently using the docile natives to mine for emeralds and harvest cocca. When the crazed Lawson kills a few natives, including the daughter of the chief, just for his sadistic enjoyment, the warriors turn against their masters and subjuect the two dealers and three grad students to the most horrific torture and murder for their crimes using their own harsh law of the jungle. / Wir befinden uns in Kolumbien. Ein paar Studenten wollen beweisen, daß es heutzutage keine Kannibalen mehr gibt. Auf ihrem Streifzug durch den Urwald treffen sie auf eine kleine Gruppe Arschlöcher, die Edelsteine suchen und Drogen nehmen. Daraufhin finden sie dann die Eingeborenen und die Arschlöcher spielen gleich Gott und vollziehen an den Menschen grausame, sadistische Spiele. Den Kannibalen, die es ja nun doch gibt, lehnen sich dann gegen all diese Grausamkeiten auf und töten und essen einen Weissen nach dem anderen, inkl. fast aller Studenten…

    Your stereo typical jungle/cannibal film. Bad acting, not much of a plot, animal slaughtering, and campy disco soundtrack. If you actually like this sort of film there are much better examples of the genre.

    Almost as good as HOLOCAUST… I loved it!

    The film is an okay film. Its not as good as cannibal Holocaust. All the violence starts in the middle of the movie. The first part of the movie is boring but twords the end it starts to get good. A man gets his scalp gets cut off and a man is castrated.

    I cant believe Deodato didn’t sue Umberto Lenzi over this shit, or at least slap the shit out of him for stealing his movie. I mean with the subject matter, who really cares right…. But still, Lenzi is a punk who cant think of his own story, thats the reason i personally dont like this film. Not a bad cannibal movie, i just dont respect it.

  • Necronatalusz

    This is my all time favorite horror film.

  • randomrick

    not as good version of holocaust!

  • goooore

    Starts off pretty slow, but really picks up nicely. Some decent gore, but this is a watered-down version of cannibal holocaust.

  • maynardmorrissey

    boring and overrated. I prefer Cannibal Holocaust

  • trickytreats

    I agree with the last review. Not as good as Cannibal Holocaust and boring at times. It could have been cut down by about 20 minutes.

  • traumahound00

    Pretty much just a knock-off of Cannibal Holocaust, which isn’t surprising, considering the director knocked off the Fulci zombie flicks when he did Nightmare City.

  • megalodonbite

    COMPLETE an utter knock off of Cannibal Holocaust. Doesn’t even come close.

  • Guitarded

    So what if its the same idea as cannibal holocaust? how many countless other knock offs are there that you people like? As its OWN movie, forgetting about Holocaust, I would say that this movie is actually pretty decent. A filthy movie that makes you want a shower.

  • ShadowTheHedgehog157

    This doesn’t compare to Holocaust. It’s nothing but a…spoof…if you will, of Cannibal Holocaust. Rented it from Nexflix wondering if this will be good…It’s okay to a point, not the best. If you are looking for a bloody, disgusting, sickening movie…. go with Cannibal Holocaust. If you wanna just see things different…this is for you.

  • ThingFreak82

    Cannibal Holocaust is so much better it’s sickening!! The only positive about this film is some of the kills are pretty graphic, otherwise CRAP!

  • YoungHorror

    I hate to compare a movie with another and judge it that way but it was really hard to with this one because of how similar it was to Cannibal Holocaust. Insanely similar. And to have to compare the movies like that with Cannibal Holocaust being so much better really turned me off to the whole movie. But it still had the gore and cringe factor and was an entertaining watch.

  • PreachersBrew

    This was good. Not as good as Cannibal Holocaust but has some good original stomach turning scenes. I actually enjoy the synopsis as well.

  • HorrorFan3000

    Fun cannibal film,delivers great gore and horrible acting.Without the gore, this movie wouldn’t be good.

  • Capsulesn’Coffee

    A strong, arguably second best entry into the cannibal sub-genre. While Holocaust was dead serious, Ferox is best described as it’s fun loving, jokey younger sibling. Add to that the extreme gore and cheesy feel and you have one hell of a entertaining gut muncher.

  • ogdredvonweary

    Definitely a poor man’s Cannibal Holocaust. There’s two or three good scenes of gore, but the terrible acting and ridiculous score prevent any real disgust, shock, or horror. It’s still pretty entertaining and good for a laugh, but it’s copycats like this which make you realize just how good a movie Cannibal Holocaust really is.

  • goryway2go

    I think this one was better then cannibal holocaust at lease I found the kill scenes better but it was long and boring just like cannibal holocaust, I just can;t believe the warning at the beginning of cannibal Ferox that was so funny I guess for the 80′s it would of been bad.
