A rundown building is to be torn down the very next day, but a handful
of tenants are refusing to leave - when a weird woman (Nicola Fiore) shows
up with her masked underlings ... who mercilessly attack and kill the
tenants one by one, then even eat their flesh. A handful of tenants manage
to escape their clutches, but find out they are locked into the building,
with no way of communicating with the outside. And the boiler room they
are barricading themselves in won't hold forever. It eventually becomes
clear that the woman wants bloody revenge on all the tenants of the
building because she was gangraped in here, and nobody stepped in to save
There is a girl (Kellyn Lindsay) though whom nobody considers more
than a junky, and who shoots up in a public bus, even, who has a score to
settle with the woman. And even though she looks totally wasted, she has
supreme fighting skills and no reservation to hurt and kill her opponents.
And she actually manages to fight her way into the building to face the
woman for a brutal showdown ...
You might have guessed from my
synopsis (and maybe even from the title): Ms. Cannibal Holocaust
isn't exactly the most intellectually challenging film, rather it's blunt,
it's brutal, and it's gory. But boy, it is effective, a throwback movie to
1970's and early 1980's grindhouse cinema that shows you how it's done.
This is not a film that wastes time with genre references or postmodern
humour but goes straight for the jugular. Plus it's brilliantly paced and
finds the exactly right balance between violence, action and atmosphere.
Sure, the film is not for everybody, due to its subject matter as well as
in-your-face approach, but if you want to see a genre movie done just
right, go and see this one!
