Pure sadism from start to finish,but I love it. **Spoilers** (by HumanoidOfFlesh)
"Cannibal ferox" is one of my favourite horror movies.Director Umberto Lenzi pulls out all the stops in this barbaric,sadistic shocker.Gloria,a student anthropologist,wants to prove that cannibalism does not exist.Together with her brother Rudy and her friend Pat,the team travels out to the jungles of South America.Once there,the three ran into a couple of drug dealers.Mike is the leader and Joe is injured.Mike says that two of them were trapped by cannibals and had watched the violent demise of a fellow comrad.Rudy doesn't buy it.Especially after Mike shoots and kills a young <more>
native woman.What follows is a night of unspeakable horror as the group is captured by the natives.Mike has his penis cut off and eaten,his hand chopped off with machete,and ends up being scalped and having his brains munched by the natives.Pat slowly dies after being hung by her breasts from large meat-hooks in what is perhaps the film's most disturbing sequence.Lots of brutal animal butchery,plenty of extreme violence and sadistic cruelty."Cannibal ferox" is definitely not for everybody;fans of "Scream" and similar politically correct garbage will certainly hate it.However if you love gory exploitation stuff this one is a must-see.
This one gives the mighty 'Cannibal Holocaust' a run for it's cash.An actual plot. Characters you sort of care about. And Lenzi built fear beautifully. Giovanni Radice John Morghen played his part perfectly. Despite his constantly saying that he's 'a little bit ashamed of this film.' He shouldn't be. He proved he's a better actor than he's ever gotten credit for.The rest of the cast performed well too. Did anyone notice former NYC porn stars Robert Kerman police lieutenant and Jack Teague professor in small roles? And Zora Kerowa was no stranger to <more>

The Mommie Dearest of cannibal-gore (by darius_m_klein)
Although the consensus seems to be that "Cannibal Holocaust" is the apogee of the cannibal-gore genre, and that "Cannibal Ferox" is an inferior copy, "Cannibal Ferox" has always been my favorite. This is due to a more believable or rather, relatively more believable premise, and more interesting characters and dialog. Unlike "Cannibal Holocaust", which overwhelms the viewer with violent gore early on and continues to dish it out until the viewer feels numb, "Cannibal Ferox" refrains from bringing out the heavy gore-and-latex effects until <more>
the drama has reached its natural climax and then it brings them out in very generous helpings indeed . Thus the sadistic, gruesome aspect of the film carries more an emotional punch.Still, to paraphrase a reviewer of "Mommie Dearest", truly it is staggering how much unintentional humor can be found in "Cannibal Ferox". While one can expect some awkward and amusing moments in any poorly dubbed low-budget Eurohorror film, "Cannibal Ferox" really takes the cake. It begins ridiculously with a very poorly acted plot setup in New York terrific disco soundtrack, though , then becomes increasingly funny when an anthropologist - with no apparent institutional backing - goes into the backwoods of the Amazon jungle to disprove the myth of indigenous cannibalism for her doctoral thesis with her vacationing brother and a blonde bimbo whose motives and presence are very obscurely presented. However, when Giovanni Lombardo Radice shows up as the villainous coke addict Mike Logan, the film becomes completely hilarious, with Radice fulminating and spewing one absurd, over-the-top line after another "You know, I could you leave you here to die - but I like you kids!" . His performance is truly a masterpiece of exploitation ham-bone histrionics.However, "Cannibal Ferox" does manage to be more than a low-budget object of derision. In spite of - or perhaps because of - the camp dialog and humor, the story is actually quite gripping. *SPOILER* The scene in which a coked-up Mike and Pat first attempt to rape a native girl and then succeed in killing her brother is disturbingly realistic and sordid. And as the anthropologist and her friends realize that there will be no escape, the film generates a truly claustrophobic and terrifying atmosphere. The climactic orgy of vengeful sadism well deserves the notoriety that the filmmakers have never failed to capitalize on. Director Umberto Lenzi demonstrates that he has considerable talent as a filmmaker as he quite masterfully - even artfully - brings the film to its stomach-churning denouement and haunting anticlimax. For these reasons "Cannibal Ferox" well deserves the ten stars given here.
One of my all-time favourite films is no picnic for those easilyupset (by Casey-52)
CANNIBAL FEROX is one of those "forbidden gems", one of the short list of films that only those with strong stomachs and undying dedication to horror films can endure. Also on that list are films like CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST, I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE, MEN BEHIND THE SUN, SALO: 120 DAYS OF SODOM, and a handful of others that are not for the weak of heart or those easily offended. I have finally seen FEROX and have only good things to say about it.The plot is rather simple: a drug dealer and his co-hort torture and kill some natives in the Amazon jungle and escape, but after encountering a <more>
college group, they are captured and brutalized for the cruelties they have caused. All of the four main actors are excellent Giovanni Lombardo Radice/John Morghen, Lorraine de Selle, Danilo Mattei, Zora Kerova and I plan to seek out all of their films. I seriously enjoyed the acting, which may come as a surprise to those who watch this film for yucks. I never once laughed during this film, I took it totally seriously and the film actually works this way. I can't stress how unbearable some of the scenes in this film are. There are several instances of real animal killings a turtle, an alligator, a pig, and almost a mongoose , castration, decapitation, mutilation, humiliation, a piranha attack, and poison darts. All of the scenes in the jungle are expertly filmed and create an otherworldy environment that puts us, the viewers, through hell and back. By the end of the film, we have experienced everything that the protagonists have and have come out alive, as well. I think that that, as well as viewing the film itself, gives a sense of triumph as an end result.Now the one problem with the film: the NYC scenes. Filmed on location in New York City, the scenes are wonderfully nostalgiac and are scored by an irresistible disco score, but the acting is horrible except perhaps porn star Richard Kerman/R. Bolla , the dubbing bad, and it just breaks the main storyline too much. It tells the story of why Mike Logan and Joe the drug dealers escaped to the Amazon. But does it really matter? Joe explains it during his story, so why shoot 20 minutes of new footage with a totally different cast? Director Umberto Lenzi does a wonderful job with the jungle footage, some of his best work, and had also done cop thrillers. I guess he couldn't resist showing off his ability to shoot action scenes. These NYC scenes are well shot and campy like most Italian cop thrillers, but should have been in a different film. Here, they just distract from the jungle action and almost ruin what could have been a classic film. Instead, this film is for the most part ridiculed and called a rip-off of the stronger CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST.The music by Budy-Maglione is superb and is available on CD through some on-line mail order video companies. It's so good I listen to it every day. The NYC disco theme is marvelous, but my favorite is still the morbid symphonic choir piece that accompanies the horrific scenes in the jungle. It is both beautifully composed and effectively filled with dread. I would list some stand-out scenes, but why ruin a good thing? Go into CANNIBAL FEROX by knowing as little about it as possible, including the now famous murder sequences, and prepare to be shocked beyond belief. Grindhouse Releasing has released the definitive version, so seek that out for cool extras, including commentaries by John Morghen and Umberto Lenzi and three trailers!
Amazingly grisly and sure to delight fans of the extreme side of cinema! (by The_Void)
If someone told me a house was haunted, I'd probably go in. If I found a tape recording that might have the ability to awaken ancient evil; I'd probably play it, and if there were a music box that supposedly could open the gates of hell, I'd probably mess around with it. But, I would never, ever, under any circumstances, enter the Amazonian jungle - and films like Cannibal Holocaust and indeed this film, are the reasons why! As if the vicious wildlife wasn't enough reason on it's own to stay away, if these films are to be believed - the jungles are also riddled with filthy <more>
cannibals! Umberto Lenzi's shabbily produced follow up to Ruggero Deodato's masterpiece may not be well made technically, but it makes up for the atrocious acting and poor screenplay with a great atmosphere, which includes both cannibalism and the jungle wildlife itself and lots and lots of disgusting, bloodthirsty gore - which is sure to delight anyone with the conviction to see this film. If you thought Cannibal Holocaust was nasty - brace yourself, because this film is far nastier! The plot - or rather excuse for lots of savagery - is that a trio of students travel to the Amazon in order to research cannibalism and whether or not it really exists. While there, they meet a couple of fugitive drug dealers...a chance encounter that proves deadly for all concerned. Make no mistake, this little Italian flick doesn't hold back! Dubbed the most violent film ever made, Cannibal Ferox may well be just that. Many countries including my native UK still don't have a fully uncut release on the market - which is why the US release is the only way to view the film. Well...if you can stomach it, that is. Scenes including a castration, arm amputation, brain eating, gutting and a woman being strung up by her breasts won't be ideal viewing for everyone. Many will say that the film is too gratuitous, and won't be able to understand how some people can enjoy it - but the fact is, the gore is the whole point of the film. Some movies try to scare the audience with psychological terror; but here, Umberto Lenzi has gone purely for the visceral; and unlike a lot of ghost stories - the Italian director has succeeded in making a film the likes of which horror fans want to see. Cannibal Ferox is frightening!
Wow!!! This is the marvellous movie!! (by alexebbasi)
Wow! Where do I begin with my review on Cannibal Ferox?! There is just so much I want to write about, I surely won't be able to fit it all in.I first saw this film just after 9/11, and it really got me thinking. We live in a world where the West are supposed to be the good guys and we are all very civilised. But then when you look at all the bad things in the world you wonder how this can be true, and that's just the point Ferox makes.So, anyway, the movie begins in New York with a young dude wondering around the city. Some might think that the music is a little bit dumb here, but <more>
that's just because it was the times, and that was very normal back then. All the time this guy is just wondering around you are thinking "Okaaaaay, who is this guy?!?". Then it happens, he runs into two thugs who just blow him away, and you are left totally shocked 'cos you think he is the main character or something. Then it goes to the jungle and we meet the real main characters, Gloria, Rudy and Pat. Gloria is the intelligent young psychology student who wants to finally prove that cannibals are not real. Rudy is her cool and handsome brother, and Pat is the free spirited sex bomb! Straight away you warm to Gloria and her brother, but maybe Pat not so much, especially after she sex with the biggest moustache ever! Then it's time they go into the jungle. They see a butterfly on the boat then when they get off they get trapped in some swamp and have to walk. This is where you know things are not gonna be pleasant. They get a small cat on a rope that I think was kinda cute. But then the first real horror thing happens, the cat is on the rope which is on a stick in the ground so it can't escape. Then out of nowhere a huge and poisonous snake comes out of the jungle and strangles it to death! Now I know some people might not like this bit, cos you can tell it is all 100% real, and the animals had to die. But I think this is just nature, and the film has to show it because that is the message it has, that we are all in nature and can not escape it. OK, they walk some more into the jungle and see an old tribe man eating maggots from the earth. If you have a stomach then turn away at this point. For me it is the worst bit of the movie, because you see the old guy biting the maggot and chewing, and I think this is worse than the animal kills and man eating that comes later. Then they run into Mike and Joe. Mike has to be one of the worst villains in all of cinema! Straight away you get the worst feeling with this guy. Joe is just his blind henchman, too scared to stand up, even though he knows he is wrong. Joe is badly injured as well. So they all wonder around some more, and Mike tells them a story about a "Portuguese guy". Yeah right!!!! This is all just a big lie, and we find that out later. So they go to a village and Mike shoots a tribe girl. She dies and her husband runs off. At this point you are thinking oh boy, the cannibals are no way gonna be happy when they get back. Joe dies of his illness. The cannibals take his body and eat his guts right in front of Gloria and Rudy!! They all try to escape but get captured. Mike gets what he deserves when his dick gets knifed off. The special effects here are so real that I literally had to hold my nuts and wince the first time I saw it. Someone said it looked like a hairy hernia, but I didn't think so. Plus this was 30 years ago, and much better than the CGI that is around today and just looks really fake. I won't spoil the rest for you. But I will say that if you are after a dumb horror movie you can just turn your brain off with, then this is not for you. This movie is brutal, heart breaking and very thought provoking. The scene where Gloria and Pat are singing to keep their spirits up always leaves me in tears. I didn't give this movie 10/10 because I think that about half way through there is a black cop who is really not right for the movie. He looks really corny and says such silly lines. It really ruined that bit of the movie for me, and I wish Lenzi had got rid of that bit, because it is so not right in this film. But the rest of the film is actually perfect and the message is as powerful today as it was 30 years ago. The film's message is just so powerful, after all who are the real cannibals?
There aren't that many horror movies about cannibalism at least not compared to other sub-genres like murdering maniacs or vampires or zombies but the ones out there enjoy a world wide status of being very controversial. Especially this movie is, along with Deodato's Cannibal Holocaust, the perfect representation of this macabre topic. In a very explicit way, both these movies show the darkest side of in humanity and there will always be at least a few sequences that shock you...no matter you're the most hardened horror fan or not. In my personal opinion, Cannibal Ferox is a <more>
bit better than Holocaust because of the deeper thoughts and emotions behind it. I also enjoy the style of director Umberto Lenzi over Deodato's. Cannibal Ferox starts with both a written and spoken warning that this motion picture contains at least two dozen scenes that may be seen as shocking and disturbing, and that you shouldn't watch this movie if you're quickly offended in any possible way. Usually, these warnings are very exaggerated and just an instrument of marketing but in this case, it really has a point. The gore and violence shown in this film gets under your skin a lot more as when you're watching other horror films. Just because one simple reason ... the existence of Cannibalistic tribes is unlikely, but not completely impossible. As I said before, Cannibal Ferox is made by Umberto Lenzi. This man is obviously obsessed by horror and just like his famous - fellow Italian - colleagues Lucio Fulci and Lamberto Bava, he likes to portray it ways that don't leave much to the imagination. We're talking about eyeballs getting stabbed out, braincracking, tearing apart a complete human body and that sort of things. Unnecessary to say that people with a weak stomach better avoid it. Perhaps the most interesting aspect about Cannibal Ferox is the moral Lenzi tries to tell. Are it in fact the cannibals who're inhuman ?? Or goes the greed, madness and curiosity of the civilized world even beyond their cruelty ??... Who ever said Italian horror is only meant to shock and offend people ? Pure talking cinema, Cannibal Ferox is far from being perfect or even good at times The acting is below average, especially in English dubbed version and there are a few obvious continuity goofs. Some sequences seem like they are "unfinished" and that makes you think Lenzi wanted to do more with it but just couldn't. All these negative elements are made up by some great nature and 'wild-life' footage, including a few fascinating animal rituals. This means: If you're hurt more by seeing an animal suffer then when you see a human get slashed, Cannibal Ferox isn't recommended neither. If you're looking for a challenge to watch... Cannibal Ferox is what you need.
**may be some spoilers***ALL IN ALL A DECENT SPLATTER FLICK... i liked "CANNIBAL FEROX" aka MAKEW THEM DIE SLOWLY... due to the sheer brutality of it's nature. but i found my self alternately laughing and being somewhat grossed out at the same time.#1 - i'm not real big into animal cruelty scenes, and it seems that these early '80's, overseas films threw these type of things in just to add some shock value. this movie has a few such scenes and i feel they are unnecessary.i also found it humorous that the box along with stating that it was banned in 31 countries - <more>
for good reason had listed something like 30 "scenes of brutality" i don't quite remember, it's been awhile since i've watched it . i found myself sitting in front of the TV trying to count exactly how many brutal scenes there really were. i found that unless you count foul language as brutal, that number was quite lacking.but don't get me wrong, this movie did have some very good gore scenes, especially for it's time. flesh eating, penile amputation, chicks hung by their breasts on hooks...all-around good fun. but i still found something about this movie comical.if you are new to horror films, pick this one up, it's pretty sure to shock you on some level... 8/10 for the cannibal/gore genre
Legendary cannibal terror from Italy (by Bogey Man)
Cannibal Ferox is about the last word in the huge cannibal movie boom that was born in Italy in the late 70's after Ultimo Mondo Cannibale by Ruggero Deodato. Ferox was made in 1981 and is the last cannibal film by its director/writer Umberto Lenzi, who had made great police thrillers and giallos. Ferox is the most notorious of these cannibal films and it has been advertised as the most violent and shocking film on Earth and that it has been banned in more than 30 countries. The film itself is not too great and it tries to rip off Deodato's brilliant masterpiece Cannibal Holocaust <more>
1979 in all possible ways. Lenzi himself thinks that he launched the whole cannibal boom with his earlier film Il Paese del sesso Selvaggio aka Man From the Deep River aka Deep River Savages 1972 , an interesting jungle adventure with couple of brief but shocking scenes of cannibalism, but the real boom didn't begin then, but only after the Deodato's film Ultimo Mondo Cannibale, as mentioned. But Cannibal Ferox is still an okay film as an exploitation film but it is sad that it copies Cannibal Holocaust so much. After all, these cannibal flicks by Mr. Lenzi Ferox, Il paese del Sesso Selvaggio and Mangiati Vivi! are not his most personal works and he has admitted that they were made only because of money and he prefers far more his crime/giallo films, and it is very understandable.Ferox has great music soundtrack as the very ominous theme in jungle scenes works perfectly and really tells something very wicked is in the air. The music is so important element in cinema in general, and especially in horror cinema. Riz Ortolani's music in Cannibal Holocaust is totally unmatchable, but Ferox has also noteworthy sound track and at least that is original work and not ripped off from other films. The movie's structure is interesting as there are flashbacks and occasionally the story concentrates on what happens back there in the city, and I think that those city scenes are pretty unnecessary and they were shot only to make the film run long enough. The cast includes the legendary Giovanni Lombardo Radice aka John Morghen who has acted very much in Italian horror cult films. He is a dangerous psychopath in Ferox and does horrible things to tribe members in the jungle. He is a drug smuggler and criminal and has very bad things in his past, but soon the jungle starts to pay back and this payback is what the story finally concentrates to tell.The film is pretty same in theme as Cannibal Holocaust and my opinion is that it rips Holocaust very much in message and is way too underlining even though the subject matter the film tells is important and true. The point is that deep inside, there is no great difference between these primitive tribesmen cannibals and our "civilized" society which exploits and destroys nature and other human beings all the time. That is pretty much the same theme as in Holocaust, and I think that Lenzi wanted to deal with the same things and complete the film as fast as possible, and get the benefit from the genre boom back then. But still, it is great that there is at least some point and depth in this film.But the real meaning of the film is to shock and deliver something other cannibal films had not delivered: pure sadism and on screen violence. The film is very brutal and has scenes of castration pretty brief, though , mutilation, eye gouging, decapitation, cannibalism and savage violence against women. The worst thing is that in these films, many real animals were killed and these scenes are plenty in Ferox. In Holocaust, the film crew at least ate the animals killed, but I'm not sure what's the case in Ferox. Maybe the Lenzi/Morghen commentary track on the US DVD will reveal something to me. I think that killing living animals only for shock purposes is not justified and thus I cannot accept that, and it is sad that many animals lost their lives probably in vain in these films.Cannibal Ferox is noteworthy film from that blood filled exploitation era of Italian cinema and due to its few cinematic achievements and atmosphere it is possible to like as a real film, too, but that demands the viewer to be a fanatic of this genre, of course. Others will only feel sick trying to watch these little films. Cannibal Ferox is not as violent and brutal as all the magazines, web sites and advertisements from the early 80's to this day have said, so if someone expects something very over the top from this film, a disappointment will follow. Don't have too high expectations on this film or any other before watching it and so a possible disappointment will not be too big. I like Ferox due to its merits mentioned above, but it has also many flaws and things I don't accept in it.Cannibal Ferox by Umberto Lenzi earns 8/10 rating in its own controversial genre and the film is almost fine in this own genre, but not as NEAR as unforgettable and important as Cannibal Holocaust, by Ruggero Deodato.
