Theatrical version distributed by AIP in the United States featured a "violence warning" gimmick, i.e. a horn sound played before violent sequences. This was not included in the Canadian theatrical version distributed by Cinepix. A bell rang to indicate the end of the violent scenes. This version is offered as a bonus audio track on the current DVD and Blu-Ray releases. See more »

"They do EXACTLY what you think they do"
16 January 2007 | by alanmoraSee all my reviews

I am BEGGING someone to release this hard to find little horror/cult gem on DVD. I would love to hear what Eugene Levy and Andrea Martin think now about having done this fun little schlocker. This film is very hard to find but it is definitely worth the search. It's a strange little film but if you can look past the bad acting, the holes in the storyline, and the inexplicable lack of gore that you would expect from any movie with the word Cannibal in the title it's actually a fun little flick. The 'gimmick' in this one is the "warning bell" which warns the viewer that a 'disturbing' scene is approaching (very William Castle like!). Still, there is just something intriguing about this cute little horror flick...check it out for yourself and you'll see what I mean!
