I have a feeling the following movie I am about to review in great detail is the most shocking and homoerotic (how about flat out gay) movie we’ve ever covered.Unearthed Films "Cannibal"(the cover art rules!!) is ripped from the German headlines about a man with a lifelong obsession with cannibalism who found a willing victim to become his dinner. They found each other online of all places and taped the disgusting event on film. The fact that this movie is based on a non- fictional event could have been an awful thing if in the wrong hands. Marian Dora photographed, edited, wrote and directed this inspired by true life film and gave it a very raw energy. None of the characters overacted, the music was brilliantly used and kept my emotions from staying in one place. Marian Dora actually had the balls to show this as if it was a romance movie. This movie is Brokeback Mountain on steroids and shows male frontal nudity that out grosses Harvey Keitel’s in “Bad Lieutenant”. With all this male nudity it could be looked at as silly but to me it fit these characters who wanted to become as one with each other. Yeah the movie is homoerotic but not in the “Jackass” fashion. It just plays like a gay art house films and exposes what these two men do in this bizarre situation.
The movie is filled with explicit gore (a penis biting scene that is anatomically amazing and deplorable) depraved excrement scenes, cross dressing, ass banging, slaughterhouse footage, drug use, extremely hairy inner thigh shots and much more insane shit. Those with an open mind and a fetish for the macabre will be amazed by this slow burning but relentless when it gets to the point movie. Props to Carsten Frank (The Man) and Victor Brandl(The Flesh) for turning out two very brave and natural performances. The only thing i find humorus is that the man who is willing to be eaten threw a female on her rag kind of fit over his predator not having what it takes to chew penis at first. Relax dude it might take a lot of practice, rest and strategizing to eat cock. I am not even trying to be vulgar but how else do i deal with this crazy subject matter
The gore is never "cool" like say in a “Saw” film. People think that shit kicks ass. This film displays some brutal and absolutely vile special effects that will most likely appall the casual horror fan. I won’t even compare this shocking film to any classic films because I fear someone might expect to see a snuff film. The fact that this movie showed tons of penises in the first half, it’s based off a true cannibal case and the last few minutes is more rip gut cannibalistic than Brotha Lynch Hung’s classic "Season of the Sicc" horror core rap record should make your viewing experience a tad bit uncomfortable. This is the first gay softcore/porn horror movie I’ve ever seen and I wouldn’t like to see any rip off’s. This was a once in a lifetime experience for me and holy homo was it gay but I kept an open mind the entire movie and I hope other people do also. Those who wanted to see Dahmer rip flesh in the movie “Dahmer” may want to tune into the last few parts of this. The blood is dark red, the intestines look real and the camera doesn’t back off any of this stuff. The movie was a simple concept based on reality but it was crafted masterfully by its creator. This is the sickest movie I’ve seen in years but that’s what us horror fans crave so I refuse to bitch when a filmmaker actually delivers. No titties in this one just love sticks and lots of guts. Guts is what it takes to make a movie like this! For the record i did not and i mean did not achieve an erection during the 89 minute playing time. I couldn't even pop in a Kobe Tai porn because the amount of wang that is still slowly disappearing from my memory. Fan's of this might enjoy "Feed" and the upcoming "Grim Love".
