Anthropophagus (2 Disk Special Edition) So there it was finally after the years and years of hearing the rumors, seeing it on the many video nasties list's, and ages of wanting to secure a copy for my collection. I had almost given up all hope of a quality release of this little nasty, when I found it just lurking on the shelf of the local dvd store begging for a collector like myself to snatch it up! Snatch it up I did. Despite all the bad shit I'd heard over the years in regards to this film I knew it was one I'd have to see to judge (seeing how Euro-horror tends to get a bad wrap from younger/inexperienced horror fans) , so I dished out the cash and took a dive into this Blind Buy. This is the third D'Amato film I've ever seen and it ranks uint the middle of his previous films I'd bought for my collection. It ranks above Zombie 5 Killings Birds' lame and pathetic attempt at serious horror, that i can assure you all, but it falls pretty far from Beyond the Darkness' hyper realistic effects which I loved. Anthropophagus had next to no story at all, and even less explination behind the events that are unfolding but like most Italian cinema you just gotta go for the ride to enjoy it's redeeming features. Despite all the terrible stuff I heard and how much hate this movie apparently has for it, it was surprisingly entertaining in a grisly b-movie fashion. Some of the effects were z-grade however and others were very graphic and raunchy which I was glad to see, surpised me after a few of the not so impressive effects. Slow pacing, bad acting, hit and miss gore effects, and next to no plotting all come together to form the experience known as Anthropophagus. I'm not 100% sure how I feel about it yet might require a second viewing as I found some of the atmosphere's and locations to be pretty impressive, it'll prolly get another viewing before I can really say. I wanna hear what you guys think hate or like??? I'm pretty sure I found it watchable, and all the scenes with the creepy cannibal had my eyes super-glued to the screen.
