| These Cannibals have Moral Values!
I must say this is a very different horror movie. And it works. It's kinda unique & creepy.

I've seen many 'cannibalistic' horror movies but they didn't really induce fear. They were more like soft-porn, with so much nudity and minimal cannibalism. Well, this movie too hardly shows the eating of human flesh but it's the preparations towards the ritual of consuming the human that shakes you. The building up towards that moment is very well done in this movie. It accomplishes being a horror movie without being explicitly horror.

All the actors did a very fine job, especially Francisco Barreiro who was superb as Alfredo a confused teenager who struggles to deal with the cannibal & murderer in himself.

But there were some flaws. One being a lady's finger found inside a dead body. The finger nail still looks freshly polished! And whatever cannibalism is shown doesn't look convincing as its shot from a far distance or is not clear to the viewer's eye. It could have been more graphic to add more chills. And what I also found funny was the moral debate among the cannibals on whom to eat!

Verdict: Could have been more creepy, but still a munching time-pass :)
