Celebrating the release of Eli Roth’s 2015 ultra-violent horror The Green Inferno, Picturehouse presents a rare screening of Ruggero Deodato’s controversial 80s epic Cannibal Holocaust, famed for being one of the most shocking films ever made. Predating The Blair Witch Project, Cannibal Holocaust is the first example of a found footage horror film. A graphic and disturbing representation of human anarchy, Cannibal Holocaust explores the fate of four documentary filmmakers lost in the Amazon Jungle. Not even the 80s haircuts can distract you from the horrific scenes of murder.
Accompanying Cannibal Holocaust, Roth’s ‘The Green Inferno’ is a horror film that takes inspiration from Deodato’s terrifying cannibal flick. Starring Lorenza Izzo and Ariel Levy, the film oozes black humour and cynicism with a little bit of brutality thrown in. The Green Inferno is a perfect example of a film so horrifically good that you’d wished you never watched it. What a perfect antidote to a Valentine’s Day weekend.
