HASH(0xa0d1a624) out of 5 stars 3.5 stars, more strange than scary, but I kind of liked it Oct. 26 2010
By S. Boone - Published on
Format: DVD
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.

HASH(0xa0d1a678) out of 5 stars The Cannibal Girls- Eugene Levy (believe it or not) Nov. 23 2013
By David Palomo - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I was 5 in 1973 when I saw this at the Drive-In. I had an awesome sister and I got to see all the awesome mainstream and B-movies u could ever want to see. I searched for this because I kinda remembered it and it became hard to find until now. F'n A. Now I got it. Just as creepy and bloody as I remembered it!!! EWWW!!! So Kool!!! Remember "The Town That Dreaded Sundown"? ...
HASH(0xa0d1a954) out of 5 stars A tasty side dish from the past. Dec 30 2014
By Fred Adelman - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Vacationing couple Cliff and Gloria (Second City vets Eugene Levy and Andrea Martin) are on their way to Farnhamville ("The Friendly City") when their car breaks down in the middle of nowhere. They eventually get it started, but not before we spot someone spying on them through the trees in the snowy forest. Once they get to town, Cliff meets another out-of-town man who is looking for his missing sister (He's eventually murdered by two local garage mechanics). Cliff and Gloria get a motel room and the motel owner tells them the "legend" of the three sisters who lived in the area. They lured men to their house with the promise of sex, fatten them up with home-cooked meals and then kill them while in the sack. Their hunchback servant, Bunker, then chops up the bodies into manageable pieces and puts the dismembered parts in a freezer in the basement to be eaten later. Yes, the three girls were (are) cannibals and the motel owner tells Cliff and Gloria that the sisters' house is now a restaurant and they should have dinner there tonight. At the restaurant (which has only one dish on the menu), they are greeted and entertained by the Reverend (Ronald Ulrich), the tux and tophat-wearing owner who, with the three sisters, serves Cliff and Gloria a meal they will never forget. It becomes apparent that the Reverend is the leader of the town and all the citizens are cannibals. Cliff and Gloria spend the night at the Reverend's house (he scares them into staying by telling them that there's a maniac on the loose) and Cliff is hypnotized by the Reverend, but Gloria gets away. The next morning, Gloria tries to convince Cliff to leave, but he refuses to believe her story (he's still under the Reverend's power). With their car being repaired and all the outside phone lines down, Gloria must get Cliff to snap out of it before they both become a menu item in the Reverend's restaurant. It all ends back at the Reverend's house, where a shocking act of betrayal seals Cliff and Gloria's fate. Bon Appetite! This bloody Canadian horror/comedy is an early directorial credit for Ivan Reitman, who would later produce David Cronenberg's SHIVERS (1975) and RABID (1977) and then graduate to the big leagues directing films like GHOSTBUSTERS (1984), KINDERGARTEN COP (1990), EVOLUTION (2001) and many others. Rough around the edges (the boom mike is visible in a few scenes, some of the acting is amateurish and parts of the film drag), CANNIBAL GIRLS is still an enjoyable low-budget gore romp that doesn't have as much comedy as you would expect, especially from the two main stars. Eugene Levy (nearly unrecognizable, he looks like Gene Shalit here) and Andrea Martin are rather subdued (a lot of the dialogue between Levy and Martin was improvised) and are nothing like the characters they played on SCTV. The comedy comes mostly from the absurdities of the situations and some of the townspeople's character traits. There's also funny little bits going on in the background of some scenes, such as when Cliff and Gloria are walking through town and we see the local barber cut off a patron's ear while giving him a shave. The film is full of nudity (none by Levy or Martin) and gore, including axe murders, stabbings, dismemberments, flesh eating and a nasty mace killing. This little-seen gem was originally shown in theaters (distributed by American International Pictures) with the gimmick of a "Warning Bell" that would ring every time a violent scene was about to happen. The print I viewed (supplied by a Canadian friend) was, thankfully, free of this annoyance. This film never got a home video release in the U.S. (it was distributed in Canada on VHS from the CIC label), on VHS or on DVD. Ivan Reitman (who owns the U.S. rights) is holding up the release and is known not to speak fondly of it. He really has nothing to be ashamed of. It's highly watchable and kind of twisted. Also starring Alan Gordon, Allan Price, Bob McHeady, May Jarvis and Randall Carpenter, Bonnie Nielson and Mira Pawluk as the Cannibal Girls. Finally available on DVD courtesy of Shout! Factory. Rated R.

HASH(0xa0d1a84c) out of 5 stars Cannibal Swirls July 19 2010
By Bartok Kinski - Published on
Format: DVD
I've seen a lot worse with these types of cannibal exploitation movies. With these cannibal movies, it's easy to complain about the picture and sound quality, the acting, and the weak plots.

While this does have some of that late 70's exploitation nostalgia, it is just a disordered movie. Cannibal Girls (1973) is absolutely absurd but surprisingly amusing as an exploitation movie, as Cliff and his girlfriend Gloria, depart for a weekend trip in Farnhamville, that is soon interrupted by three pesky cannibals.

I understand why people would love this weary film, because it's so bad, but I found myself disappointed in the lack of - everything.
HASH(0xa0d1ae88) out of 5 stars but all fun to watch with a big Tupperware bowl of buttered ... Dec 7 2014
By Scott W. Wallace - Published on

This little appetizer from 1973 draws its spoof of horror films mainly from the comedic talents of Eugene Levy and Andrea Martin. The horror is tame, the warning bell option on the film's soundtrack is shamelessly gimmick, but all fun to watch with a big Tupperware bowl of buttered popcorn. Enjoy your meal, and come see us again!
