Over the years, horror has generated a lot of controversy. Be it Silent Night, Deadly Night, the Black Christmas remake, you name it, I’m sure every movie has had at least one naysayer somewhere. But one movie stands alone. No movie has come close to the controversy that Ruggero Deodato’s Cannibal Holocaust has generated. The 1980 film sets itself apart from the string of teen slasher films that were starting to bloom at that period with very graphic imagery and content, even prompting a court case alleging that it was a snuff film. With the release of Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno, which itself is an homage to Cannibal Holocaust, I thought it was time to relive some of the gorgeous, and maybe even graphic posters that have been created over time.
