Cannibal Holocaust (1980)
Review by Jude Felton
A few weeks prior to writing this review, I had the privilege of attending the Slaughter in Syracuse Underground Horror Film Festival. Whilst there I happened to notice a tattoo on the leg of, modern horror/exploitation master, Ryan Nicholson’s leg. Nothing unusual about that, lots of folk have tattoos on their legs, but this one was different; it was of a rather infamous image from Ruggero Deodato’s 1980 classick, Cannibal Holocaust. Aside from being very cool, it just reminded me of the impact of this controversial, yet supremely wonderful slice of exploitation cinema.
