Cannibal World

Please choose a format above.

Cannibal World, the brand new theme park that’ll cost you an arm and a leg! Okay, it’s not really about a theme park. It’s about some rich explorer types who keep bothering this village of people who are just trying to do their own thing. Sure, their thing is sloppily devouring everybody they see, but still!

Naturally, the tribespeople in the film are depicted authentically and with full cultural sensitivity - just kidding, it’s an Italian-Spanish horror movie from the 80s. They’re depicted as “white guys in facepaint hooting and hollering and chewing on raw arms.” Specifically, the arm of a family man whose young daughter is kidnapped after he inexplicably brings her on his cannibal exploring trip. Honestly, these cannibals are teaching him an important lesson about parenting.

Years later, the man works up the nerve to go back and try to find his lost daughter. Well, it’s years for her, because she’s aged into a teenage cannibal goddess worshipped by the tribe. Meanwhile the dad only seems to be a few months older. How does this timeline work, exactly? Probably something to do with the multiverse.

It’s a rip-roaring adventure to save his daughter from her fairly comfortable life as a goddess. There’s some gore, some nudity, and a whole lot of vintage Spantalian schlock! Grab your fork and join Mike, Kevin, and Bill as they chow down on Cannibal World!

Written by: Mike Nelson, Bill Corbett, Conor Lastowka, and Sean Thomason

Contributing writers: Jason Miller and Zach Shatzer

Rated TV-MA for gore, nudity, and poorly simulated people-eating.
