Almost bought this today, but...
 
Just how much animal violence is in it? I am an animal lover and get pretty disturbed by such scenes. Are they easy to skip past etc. I really want to see this, but if it's difficultly to skip animal cruelty scenes, I might have to give it a miss.

If animal slaughter upsets you, you might be well advised to avoid Cannibal Holocaust. To say that the animal violence is gruesome is putting it mildly, even in the Shameless release. The Grindhouse Releasing set provides an optional version that removes all sight of the animal stuff altogether, so you'd probably find that more to your liking.

I'm personally of the opinion that you need to see it uncut or not at all in order to get the full impact of Deodato's film.

Buy it. Watch it. Hate yourself. Or get the Grindhouse Releasing version with vegan option.

If you mean to fully understand it's notoriety , I agree.
But as a film on it's own merits, I'm not so sure, I saw it cut first and still thought it was a powerful film.

I watched the uncut edition and that was the 1st time i'd seen the film as i was under the thought of see it uncut or not at all. Hence the version I bought was the 2 disc deluxe collector's edition by ECC and I skipped on buying the Vipco edition as I knew it would be cut - even though the dvd cover claimed differently (saying fully uncut)

I agree that there's no need for the animal violence, but I think that pretending it's not there is not particularly helpful either. It is what it is, as repulsive as some of it is. And I must admit to being baffled as to why the outcry over the animals and not a word about the scenes of real human death and suffering in the Last Road to Hell sequence. Are humans worth less than animals then?

I agree, in that even if you buy/watch an uncut version, you're still giving Ruggero Deodato your money for CH. :tongue1:

Good Point. But maybe, while using that footage was exploitive, it was existing footage after all, so people get upset at the fact, the animal cruelty was done at the hands of the director.
