2. THE YANOMAMO TRIBE IN CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST (1980)
How messed-up is Italian filmmaker Ruggero Deodato’s infamous exploitation flick Cannibal Holocaust? Try this on for size: Deodato was arrested for obscenity immediately after the movie’s 1980 release in Italy, charged with making a snuff film. That’s how raw this incredibly nasty film is—calling its final act “nauseating” is like labeling Brooklyn Decker “kind of attractive.” One of the original found-footage horror movies, Cannibal Holocaust shows the discovered tapings of a fictional documentary crew that disappeared in the Amazon Rainforest. Turns out, they killed one of their team just to watch the natives chow down on his innards, then they gang-raped a young female member of Yanomamo tribe. As cruel and unusual punishment, the Yanomamo sickos engage in some raping, beheading, and, of course, consumption of flesh. Needless to say, Cannibal Holocaust is fun for the whole family.
