Anthropophagus (1980)

Director: Joe D'Amato

Starring: Tisa Farrow, Saverio Vallone, Serena Grandi, Margaret Mazzantini, Mark Bodin, Bob Larson, Rubina Rey, George Eastman

More info: IMDb

Tagline: ...He's coming for you

Plot: A group of tourists become stranded on an uninhabited island where they are stalked by an insane, violent, and grotesque killer that slaughtered the town's former residents.

My rating: 3/10

Will I watch it again? Nooooooooo.

This is your standard dull, boring synthesizer scored 1970s/80s horror picture that has some great gore...

and nothing else. Besides the above shots of gore, the only thing that was remotely interesting was a scene where a male and female couple are wandering through the mansion and are suddenly startled by a cat jumping on the keys of a piano. That's about as cliche you can get in a horror flick but what's different about this scene is after we get a shot of the two being shocked and then laughing about it, without missing a beat, a bloodied woman appears from nowhere and stabs the shit out of the guy! HOLY FUCKING SHIT! THAT was super cool but none of this is worth having to sit through 90 minutes of visual ambien.
