Even by the sleaziest standards of '80s EuroTrash, it remains a film that must be seen to be believed: When a pair of criminal knuckleheads and their busty moll kidnap the young daughter of a wealthy tycoon, they foolishly... more »

"Folks, the "cannibals" in this unintentional comedy appear to have been recruited from a local pool hall: they all have different haircuts, none of which are even remotely convincing - and at least one "cannibal" has sideburns! They jump around with sticks, hooting and chanting like it's a pledge initiation. It does have a few decent gore scenes, but it's hard to keep from laughing. Fortunately I love really bad films, and I'll buy this new version. I just wish I could share it with Mike and the 'bots.
Almost unwatchable...even by Cannibal movie standards

"I am a seasoned Euro Cult enthusiast and in turn own many Italian/Euro cannibal films. Other than such films as Cannibal Holocaust and Jungle Holocaust (which are good films), most of the other films in the infamous subgenre are just sleazy B-grade movies that people unusually watch for cheezy performances, nudity, and/or creative gore. Cannibal Terror fails miserably on all accounts.
The first thing that sets Cannibal Terror apart from other films in the genre is that its a Spanish/French co-production. This proves that cannibal exploitation films should be left to the Italians as this shameful bandwagon effort is an insult to people looking for a bloody, exploitative good time.
Cannibal films aren't known for great plots this film literally has no plot. Some lowlife criminals kidnap a girl and run into Cannibals in a jungle. Almost the entire film is filler with pointless, boring dialogue. There is only two gore scenes but nothing viewers haven't seen in this genre before and better. The wost aspect of the film is the cannibal tribe itself as they don't even look like jungle tribal members. It's a bunch of extras from all different races and hairdos. Some of the tribal members are fat, middle aged white men and there is even one tribal member with 70's style sideburns!
I do not recommend buying this film. I got sent this film as a free promo by Severin films and I thank God every day that I didn't pay a dime for it. Only buy if your an absolute completest or you are into torturing yourself.
As for the DVD itself....Severin did a tremendous job at transferring this dreadful film. This transfer is TOO GOOD for this film. The only special features to speak of are are a "deleted scene" and a trailer.

""Cannibal Terror" was banned in England for a time. It is known as "Cannibal Terrible" at my house and is currently banned there as well.
It's a somewhat watchable movie. You want to keep watching in hopes that something extra cool will happen. It never does.
The DVD version is very clean and crisp and that helps. It's just not a very exciting movie. It could have been a decent cult kind of cannibal movie if the pace and editing of the movie had a little help. Some scenes just drag on way too long. Not scenes with people talking. Scenes of the woods and people walking. The same overhead shot of a bunch of trees is shown several times. Folks walking through the woods. Zzzzzzzzz. Wake me up when someone is being eaten!
The ending is very stupid and unexciting."
