Cannibal Holocaust

Cannibal Holocaust ★★★

I have no idea how to rate this so I'm just going to go straight up the middle with three stars (extra 1/2 star for being an icon of horror, good or bad).

I avoided this for forever. I'm an unabashed horror fan, but I've always avoided the 60's/70's exploitation films and the controversy surrounding it put it further off for me.

I finally relented and watched it a few years ago, and I found it to be a combination of B-grade hokeyness, groundbreaking filmmaking, and unnecessary abusive and horrifying scenes.

I read a review today that pretty much nailed my assessment of it, so I'll let his words speak for themselves.
