TRAILER TREASURES: CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST (1979)

Ruggero Deodato's CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST is genuinely one of the most infamous movies of all time, and quite rightly so. Depending on your viewpoint, it's either a very knowing and well-constructed swipe at the media and our attitudes to other cultures, or it's a vile, gory and unsettling exploitation movie with some truly nasty gore. Personally I'd say it's a bit of both.

This trailer is fascinating - while it gives you glimpses of the violence, the gore and the sleaze aspects it also does give you some of the chilling atmosphere of the film thanks to the use of the music, which recurs in the movie. That music, swaying, pleasant and almost romantic, gives the shocking visuals so much more power than they would otherwise have.

So wherever your opinions may lie regarding the film itself, you've gotta admit the trailer has some power. Here it is.
