This thread has been dormant since February. A reminder is in order

Come on Shameless, you know you want to

I'd rather they didn't tbh, prefer a shitload of extras for these two, Shameless don't really have the funds for such extravagance in their releases, shame really (no pun intended) as they'd make great titles for them

Edit: Old age must be setting in, I've already said this on this very thread

Yeah but if Shameless released them then you wouldn't have to pay for them.

Nah, I'd like to see Anthropophagous released (which would pass uncut now no problem, and it probably would have done already if the full version had been submitted before): but I've never rated it highly (because it mostly drags) and the actual filmic quality has always been ropy. Was it filmed in Super 8 blown up to 16mm? It would be better if some other company gave it a budget release, because a Shameless one would be full price and nothing could be done to improve the print. If they want to include it as a freebie though, with a release of Absurd, which I've not seen, then I will buy.

I love Anthro! I'd definitely be up for a UK release of this, plus Absurd. It is kind of slow going, but I really enjoy the film's spooky atmosphere, the electronic score and George Eastman's cannibal character. It would be great to see some company (whether it be Shameless, Arrow, etc) produce extras for both movies. Nowadays, both films should sail through the BBFC fully uncut.

Yeah if anything the BBFC seem to hate more modern day horror movies these days than older ones like this. Besides like someone already said a few pages ago, the abortion scene in Cannibal Holocaust was passed uncut in 2011, which is much nastier than the one presented in Anthro. Also with the likes of Boise-Moi getting an uncut release, I can't see either one of these titles having any issues.

The foetus-munching scene might be problematic if it were in any way realistic and not obviously just thrown in as a sick joke. You can hardly see anything anyway because the print is so dark, but you can still tell the actor is trying to chew on a skinned rabbit.

I still remember watching that film for the first time on a bootleg video and pissing myself laughing at the bit where the 'beast', which is just a guy with bad skin, attempts to eat its own intestines, dies, then falls flat on its face in its own guts. It's one of the funniest gore scenes outside of Night of the Demon. For that, it's at least a movie everybody has to see.
