This week, The Plotaholics tackle the most challenging film they’ve ever done in 1980s Cannibal Holocaust. This Italian found-footage film follows a professor of anthropology on his search for a documentary crew lost in South America. Upon finding said footage, questions of sensationalism, barbarism, and entertainment are explored, much in the way that those topics are still discussed today.
