Shaun vs. Cannibal Holocaust (1979)

can1The next film in my series is a film I’ve avoided watching for years.  Considered one of the more controversial movies ever made, the violence portrayed in the movie came off as so real that the filmmakers were brought to court on charges of murdering their actors for nothing more than a snuff film.  While the actors were just fine, another controversy comes from the killing of real animals on film.  Because of all of this, the filmmakers claimed the movie was banned in over fifty countries.  Most countries have eventually relented and allowed its release but it’s still banned in some countries!  Get ready for a crazy film you probably won’t enjoy with an even crazier backstory that’s fun to tell!

Shaun vs. The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971)

phibesThe first part of my alphabet of horror.  Throughout October I’ll try to review a horror movie whose title starts from A-Z.  For the first movie, we go back to 1971 with a unique revenge tale called The Abominable Dr. Phibes.  Vince Prince stars as a disfigured genius who believes a team of doctors failed to save his wife’s life and holds each one responsible for her death.  He concocts a series of revenge pieces based on the biblical ten plagues of Egypt in order to gain retribution for the loss of his true love.  It shows its age a lot but still stands as an interesting piece of cinema, from the production design to the unique set of murders and even Price’s delightful performance, the film entertains.
