Cannibal Girls may well be a curiosity more than a "must have", but while it's not overly great, it has a certain strangeness about it that I found appealing. Pre-SCTV actors Eugene Levy & Andrea Martin play a young couple who go to vacation in the small town of Farnhamville. They check into a local hotel and, on the recommendation of the manager, they go to dine at a local restaurant that was once the scene of legendary horrors, being that there were three young women who lured men into their farmhouse, where they killed and ate them. The restaurant is rather creepy and so are their hosts, and after getting a bit tipsy they decide to stay the night, with predictably dire results. But is this all for real? Seemingly not, but the nightmare is not quite over.
The humor in this is rather dry and will not be appreciated by some. There are a couple pretty funny moments that were supposedly improvised, and one scene where I did laugh out loud. Just the idea that our young couple keep going on about how "beautiful" the place is that they've chosen to stay in is rather funny in itself, since it's basically just some small dumpy town with lots of dirty snow piled everywhere. The horror, well, it's nothing you've never seen before but there is also a "horror horn" to alert one to scenes where you need to look away if you're squeamish (and the sound of a doorbell, that I suppose is to alert one to when it's OK to look again).
There is also a special feature interview with Ivan Reitman & Daniel Goldberg, which gives some insight into the film and the trials and tribulations they went through to complete it. Some of the interview is interesting but at some point it started feeling almost as long as the film itself.
I'd say this has rather limited appeal, it's not rollicking comedy nor is it particularly effective horror either, but it has a certain strangeness about it that I enjoyed. If you enjoy horror films of early 70's vintage, you'll probably want to see this. 3.5 out of 5 stars.
