Let’s start with the film that most people point to as the most violent and disturbing film ever made. Cannibal Holocaust is so violent and realistic, for many years there was a rumor it was a snuff film that depicted its actors getting killed onscreen. This Italian faux-documentary is still banned in a number of countries. It was also a leading film in the ‘video nasty’ moral panic in 1980s Britain. Finally, its director faced obscenity charges in his native Italy. This movie is truly horrifying, and if the cannibalism doesn’t turn your stomach, the animal cruelty will.
