Pleasant little book about everything cannibalistic. Includes a movie guide and a run down of the most notorious true instances of cannibalism. Although, it seems that the editors did not care to go over the texts and pictures before it when to the press: there are typos and inconsistant information here and there.

Shelves: wonderful, great
It’s the best book on cannibalism I’ve ever read! It got cannibal killers, cannibal customs around the world in both present and the past, cannibalism in movies/snuff movies etc! And with many many bloody horrifying pictures!!!

For horror film completists, this book focuses on cannibal films. Lots of cross reference material and history on the most influential films in the genre, lots of lesser films are only mentioned in context of their predecessors.

Traverses the cannibal world from genuine rites and tribes to every film with cannibal content and amazingly does not become boring.

This is an interesting book on the cannibal culture, but it reads like a textbook. I did not finish the book. It just didn't hold my interest.
