Antropophagus (1980)

4.0 out of 5

Often seen as one of many Halloween clones, Anthropophagous proves to be a classic horror in itself. Directing under his usual nom de guerre of Joe D'Amato, Aristide Massaccesi follows the usual slasher plotline, but throws cannibalism into the pot, and takes the gore that little bit further. George Eastman has fun in the title role, giving it his bestial best, and D'Amato's clever use of the Greek location to raise some genuine thrills amongst the foetus eating and strangulations, puts this well above the norm.
