    Thanks, ZC. Any thoughts on some of the individual entries in this notorious and much belittled Italian subgenre?

        Not sure, I'll have to get back to you on that one. I don't think it was Ferox, but I was interrupted midway through my last viewing of the DVD, so I can't say for sure. It sure as hell wasn't 'Holocaust', but I imagine you already know that...Anybody else know the answer to this question?

              I believe your prayers for a new "Official Italian Cannibal Movie" have been answered, with Ruggero Deodata's latest effort, slated for a 2006 release, Cannibal Metropolitana

                    What's the name of the book? I might want to get ahold of a copy for myself to read...

                      Cannibalism & Human Sacrifice by Gary Hogg. it was written in the early 80's.

                        Could suck donkeys ass or could be a reinvention of the 'oh-so-dead-genre-since-the-80's'.

                              This upcoming book looks to be the very ultimate and definitive last word on the history of cannibalism as depicted in international cinema, definitely a must-have from my main man Stephen Bissette...
                              --TJ




                              "FAB Press is proud to announce the signing of a publishing agreement with comic-book legend and renowned cult horror movie expert Stephen R. Bissette--

                              WE ARE GOING TO EAT YOU! The Complete History of Cannibal Cinema
                              To be published by FAB Press, July 2007

                              With brand-new original Steve Bissette cover art, this book will be the last word on the cannibal genre.

                              A considerably truncated version of this text was previously published in Chas. Balun's historic The Deep Red Horror Handbook (FantaCo Enterprises, 1989), but this is the complete, unexpurgated version. Including cannibal and zombie film artwork by the author, and an eye-popping array (culled from the SpiderBaby archives and the renowned FAB Press archives) of super-rare movie pressbooks, clippings, ad mats, film stills and posters from around the world, dating back to the 1890s!

                              From Martin and Osa Johnson's silent cannibal travelogues to GOONA GOONA and the Mondo films, from DR. X to CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST and beyond, it's all here, researched and dissected with the usual Bissettian obsessive intensity.

                              PLEASE NOTE: Stephen R. Bissette previously made the 'archival edition' of this book available for sale at his own website, but that edition - photocopied from the old Atari printer manuscript - was completed in 1990, BEFORE the release of key mainstream cannibal epics like ALIVE! and SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, before FRIED GREEN TOMATOES, the influx of Asian horrors, before the true-life horrors of Jeffrey Dahmer, etc.

                              As part of Stephen Bissette's publishing agreement with FAB Press, the archival edition is no longer available, and the author is now committed to completely revising and updating the book, so that when it is published in summer 2007, WE ARE GOING TO EAT YOU! will tell the WHOLE story of the cannibal movie genre, with EVERY relevant film ever made fully documented, present and correct...

                              WE ARE GOING TO EAT YOU! will feature:

                              - Analysis, insights, and behind-the-scenes stories of those bloody Italian cannibal gems like MAN FROM DEEP RIVER, THE LAST SURVIVOR/JUNGLE HOLOCAUST, TRAP THEM AND KILL THEM, MOUNTAIN OF THE CANNIBAL GOD, CANNIBAL APOCALYPSE/INVASION OF THE FLESH HUNTERS, EATEN ALIVE!/THE EMERALD JUNGLE, DR. BUTCHER M.D./ZOMBIE HOLOCAUST, and CANNIBAL FEROX/MAKE THEM DIE SLOWLY.

                              - Cannibal cinema rarities like CANNIBALS OF THE SOUTH SEAS, A SCREAM IN THE NIGHT, WHAT'S BUZZING BUZZARD (Tex Avery's cannibal classic cartoon!), GOONA GOONA, FIVE CAME BACK, BACK TO ETERNITY, CANNIBAL ISLAND, SPIDER BABY, TERROR IN THE JUNGLE, AFRICA ADDIO/AFRICA BLOOD AND GUTS, the Mondo movies, THE WILD EYE, THE VALLEY (OBSCURED BY CLOUDS), HOW TASTY WAS MY LITTLE FRENCHMAN, MACUNAIMA, SURVIVE!, MONDO CANNIBALE, THE MAN HUNTER, CANNIBAL TERROR, CUT AND RUN, WHITE SLAVE, CANNIBAL TOURS, and more!

                              - Genre masterpieces including NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, SOYLENT GREEN, THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE, CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST, and others!

                              - Mainstream off-genre essentials like SUDDENLY, LAST SUMMER!, THE SKY ABOVE THE MUD BELOW, THE NAKED PREY, WEEKEND, A MAN CALLED HORSE, WALKABOUT, AGUIRRE THE WRATH OF GOD, THE LAST MOVIE, QUEST FOR FIRE, THE EMERALD FOREST, THE MISSION, and other surprisingly key titles you wouldn't associate with the cannibal films you know and love.

                              In addition to a standard trade paperback edition, FAB Press will be publishing an exclusive hardback signature edition. Each copy will be individually autographed by author Stephen R. Bissette. WE ARE GOING TO EAT YOU! will be published by FAB Press, July 2007...

                                Appreciate? The only Cannibal movie worth appreciating is Cannibal Holocaust. The movie isnt great, but i do admire its balls to the wall approach to the subject matter. I also like the fact the movie seemed real and that made the movie experience that much more disturbing. The special effects were top notch and the atmosphere was just right. I love a horror film that isnt afraid to go there.

                                The rest of those Cannibal movies are cheap immitations and deserve to be forgotten not appreciated. They were too cheesy and tried too hard to follow in Cannibal Holocaust foot steps...and failed.
