Eaten Alive! AKA Mangiati Vivi! (1980)
Eaten Alive aka The Emerald Jungle, aka Doomed To Die, original title in Italian: Mangiati Vivi (1980, D. Umberto Lenzi)
Personally I think this is the best out of all the Italian cannibal movies, and definitely the one with the most character. Umberto Lenzi was at his most absurd, sleazy best. This one has every sick gag featured Cannibal Ferox and Cannibal Holocaust, just as much gore, and more. There is rape, gang rape, ritual gang rape, penis cutting, penis eating, breast eating, it has everything Cannibal Holocaust and Cannibal Ferox have, except, of course, originality.
