The most violent film ever made! Banned in 31 countries! Don’t see this alone!
The second Nitehawk Nasties’ features is Cannibal Ferox, aka Make Them Die Slowly. A bona-fide Video Nasty (as decreed by the British Board of Film Classification in the 1980s), it’s the trashier sister to Cannibal Holocaust but still full of adventurous youth, needless animal torture, and gruesome special effects.
The story unfolds as follows: three young anthropologists head down to Columbia to prove the cannibalism no longer exists and was, in fact, a story concocted by greedy European colonizers. After meeting two New York-based drug dealers who have wreaked havoc on the Columbian village, most of them wind up proving this theory with their lives. Turns out, violent killing and cannibalistic urges do come about when prompted.
