CANNIBAL CAMPOUT (1988) **

I watch a lot of shitty shot on video horror movies so it’s nice to find one that has better acting, effects, and music than I’m used to.  That doesn’t necessarily make Cannibal Campout a “good” movie.  It just means it’s a helluva lot more tolerable than most of it’s ilk.

 

A bunch of friends decide to go out camping for the weekend in the same woods where several people have disappeared.  It turns out that they were victims of a trio of inbred redneck cannibal brothers.  Little do the campers know, they’re the next entrée on the cannibals’ menu.

 

Cannibal Campout has it’s share of lulls and takes a while to get going.  As much as I wanted to like this flick, I’d be lying if I didn’t say I nodded off a couple times throughout the flick.  The video cinematography is pretty bad and doesn’t do the movie any favors either. 

 

Still, this flick does deliver in the gore department.  There is gut ripping, throat slashing, and axes to the face.  The only downside is that the severed limbs look like they came from Spenser’s Halloween sale or something.  I didn’t care though because it had some tits in it.  And the score is really good; something I definitely wasn’t expecting from a low budget shot on video horror flick.  Plus, the theme song is pretty funny too.  The flick is also notable because the nerd of the group actually gets the girl.  So it’s got that going for it.

 

The sidekick cannibal gets the best line of the flick when he rips out a fetus from a pregnant woman and says, “Hey look, a womb with a view!”
