Cannibal Holocaust

In the spirit of the mondo films of the '60s and '70s, the Italian-made Cannibal Holocaust "documents" a crew of four filmmakers who travel deep into the "Green Inferno" of the Amazon to film two indigenous tribes. The filmmakers never return, and two months later, a famed anthropologist goes in search of the crew—only to discover their horrifying footage. Back in New York, the anthropologist and a team of TV folk view the gory reels and learn what happened to the crew. Cannibal Holocaust is a sadistic romp, overflowing with ugly commentaries about the savagery of the human soul. It's definitely worth checking out, if only for the fact that it gets away with murder. (Literally, with a whole ark-load of animals. R.I.P., giant majestic turtle.) To borrow a line from the film, "It'll rape your senses!" Poor violated senses.
