Cannibal Holocaust looks like the most disgusting movie of all time. ._.

I've heard so much about Cannibal Holocaust but most of my friends who have watched it don't find it very interesting.

Hardly any films get banned nowadays, probably because everything that's considered outrageous has been done.
Nothing shocks anyone any more.

yeah Cannibal Holocaust the film that gives bad movies a bad name...its tedious

I think Clockwork Orange never got banned in the UK as Kubrick had rights on screenings and withdrew them after there were copycat killings/assaults or something. Ironically Kubrick though being a bastard of a director was pretty much a peace-nik
