Critic Reviews of "Cannibal Holocaust"
Time OutJune 24, 2006
Its pointed attack on exploitative film-making seems somewhat rich in the circumstances, but this is well made, uniquely unpleasant and almost deserving of its huge cult status.
Blu-ray.comJuly 05, 2014
Rough, but it's an interesting type of sensationalism from a (thankfully) bygone production era. It's not a film to be enjoyed, but it certainly offers a singular genre bite that's impressively gonzo.
Cinema CrazedJune 26, 2014
An enormous master work from Ruggero Deodato whose own film has pretty much guaranteed to outlive its creator.

[VIDEO ESSAY] Apart from being a truly disturbing film, "Cannibal Holocaust" serves up a cold plate of scathing social commentary.
Antagony & EcstasySeptember 08, 2010
Basically perfect: it achieves its goals in virtually every respect. Deodato made a movie whose purpose is to make me feel awful, and I do.
Ozus' World Movie ReviewsMarch 20, 2010
This is, bar none, the most revolting, weird and disturbing cannibal film I have ever seen.

Ruggero Deodato's purposefully unwatchable opus questions the film image's validity while debasing it

The completely heinous nature of the film...is exposed through its own inconsistencies.

It may be the nastiest of the Video Nasties.
