Cannibal Holocaust (1980)

Although Cannibal Holocaust did not invent the genre about alleged films found after an attack. It was undoubtedly the spearhead of this famous film that was banned in many countries. Moreover It recovers the images of a documentary team that disappeared in the Amazon after encountering a cannibal tribe.
The images of violence in the film were so realistic that it was accused of actually killing the actors, which is not true. In any case, the image of the impaled woman can make you think otherwise.
*Note: The film has scenes of cruelty and death against animals, so we cannot recommend watching it. If you’re interested in seeing some pretty nasty stuff, go for it, but you’ve been warned.
