Fans of gore have a real treat on Monday, July 30, 2012. Eli Roth, director of Hostel and Cabin Fever and actor in Inglorious Basterds, presents a screening of Cannibal Ferox at TIFF Bell Lightbox at 6:00 pm. Roth will also participate in a post-screening Q & A moderated by TIFF’s Midnight Madness programmer Colin Geddes.
Cannibal Ferox is a 1981 gore film from Italian director Umberto Lenzi. The film tells the story of three friends who set out to disprove the myth that cannibals exist, when they run into two men who previously tortured and enslaved a cannibal tribe who, of course, now wants revenge. Alternately titled Make Them Die Slowly, the film was previously banned in 31 countries, though that number has gone down in recent years. The film’s Parental Guide page on IMDb demonstrates its bona-fides as something that, it is subtly concluded, is “not for the faint of heart” — as if that wasn’t already apparent from the title.
The screening starts at 6:00 pm on Monday, July 30, 2012. Tickets and more information can be found at the event page at tiff.net.
