CGiii Comment

No guesses as to what this is about? Yip, cannibals. Posh ones! Wealthy ones! Influential ones!

It's bloody bloody and fantastically distasteful...with an undercurrent of tongue-in-cheek humour running throughout. It's a case of: Will he, won't he...be eaten!?!

At the heart of this film is...a man so firmly in-the-closet, he will do absolutely anything to anyone who threatens to drag him out of his homo-haven. Cue: a cannibalistic battle of wits. His homosexual denial is a spectacular piece of writing and acting...brimming with chilling confidence, he places absolute terror into anyone who 'knows' his secret. And, someone 'knows' his secret...let the games begin!

With a short runtime of 81 minutes, Guto Parente packs an elephant into a suitcase. If you have the palate for distaste...this is a feast. There's no denying...cannibalism has never been so entertaining...what a strange thing to say about such a strange film! Loved it.
