From the movie. All special effects, though it was convincing enough when the film first was released decades ago that a judge actually hauled the filmmakers into court on the grounds that they had clearly murdered someone on film.

timujin: so... is that from the movie set or an actual dead human being?



The filmmaker was charged with murder and had to go to court to prove it wasn't real. From Wiki:

Eventually, Deodato was able to prove that the violence was staged. He contacted Luca Barbareschi and told him to gather the other three actors. After he voided the contracts in order to avoid life in prison, Deodato brought the foursome onto the set of an Italian television show, which satisfied the courts. He still had to prove, however, that the impalement scene was merely a. In court, he explained how the effect was achieved: a bicycle seat was attached to the end of an iron pole, upon which the actress sat. She then held a short length of wood in her mouth and looked skyward, thus giving the appearance of impalement. Deodato also provided pictures of the girl interacting with the crew after the scene had been filmed. After they were presented with this evidence, the courts dropped all murder charges against Deodato.

A thoroughly repellant film that is nonetheless as watchable as a train wreck. While no actors were killed several animals including a sea turtle are killed. Their real deaths helped fuel the  rumors that actual human beings were killed as well.

Not  to go off topic, the article below has no thread to the left (at least for me). Does "Featured Partner" mean we can't make fun of it or something? If so...well, I won't say it aloud.

Really?  Most of us won't watch it because pointless gore porn isn't particularly our thing.  But I guess you can go with "some animals over my arbitrary threshold of 'cute' were harmed" if you want, I guess.  I mean, it's kind of silly since literally any outdoor set ever is maintained partially through pest control, but if that's the way you wanna roll I guess it's just movies.

The turtle is slowly tortured to death by vivisection. That's a bit more than "harm". I've seen the movie once, and will never recommend it to anyone.

You have to remember, though, during the 60s and 70s, animal deaths on film weren't a big deal. Peckinpah blew up a horned toad in one movie and had a scorpion being eaten alive by ants in another. Coppola filmed a water buffalo being slaughtered in Apocalypse Now, there was a Gene Hackman western where a cow had it's throat cut and was slaughtered, and Michael Cimino blew up a horse with dynamite.

Not saying it's right, but it was hardly anything new, even back then.

I watched Cannibal Holocaust when I was 12 on a sleepover and we laughed hysterically the whole way through. I'm not sure what that says about my childhood.

The best thing about that movie is all the main characters are so awful it's a real joy to see them slaughtered.

I get what you are saying, but most of those are a little different. Getting blown up or bled out is quick and painless compared to vivisection. I think the scene last 2 or three minutes. It's a whole different level of sadism.

Again, in no sense is Eli Roth an A-list anything.  Not the guy who's only done Hostel and other B movies.  He's maybe, maybe Kevin Amith level, maybe, and in no sense is Kevin Smith an A-list guy.  You think an A-list actor is going to listen when someone is trying to pitch him or her "you get to be in an Eli Roth picture?"  NIH-uh, not happening.

It is silly when people try differentiate between stepping on ants and snails and stepping on puppies. Because it's either all or nothing.
