I've Seen Worse Films Than This...
First of all, don't sit down and watch Antropophagus expecting a five-star classic on par with The Godfather. If you do, you will be disappointed. However, if you're stuck in on a rainy day, this film may be what you need.

There's no real story to speak of. Basically, some people end up on an island where some ugly looking guy is going around killing people. The people themselves are trapped on the island where the guy (who I shall call Mr. Killer for the sake of simplicity) stalks them, breathing heavily as he does.

There are quite a few scares in this film. Not big scares but a few minor scares. The scary thing is that Mr. Killer is just killing for the sake of it. At least some screen villains try and provide justification for their actions; Mr Killer just kills for the fun of it. And you never really find out why he is the way he is or why he is killing. There is one vague flashback which tells us nothing at all so it's up to the audience to draw conclusions on Mr. Killer.

The film is slow in parts but overall, it's not too bad and Mr. Killer is genuinely creepy. You don't always see him but you can hear his breathing as he gets close to his victims.

As I said, don't expect a brilliant top-notch film but it's the perfect movie for when you're really bored.
