    These girls do EXACTLY what you think they do!


    SCTV regulars Eugene Levy and Andrea Martin star in this Canadian horror spoof as a couple on a romantic holiday who settle into a quaint little bed-and-breakfast run by a trio of flesh-eating ladies who fancy them for tomorrows menu.

    Released in 1973 and directed by a then-largely unknown Ivan Reitman , Cannibal Girls quickly acquired a reputation as the B-movie concoction of the 1970s. Canadian audiences had never before experienced such a rich blend of camp, gore and comedy. On top of the films overt B-movie presentation, the theater-going public was also introduced to the warning bell experience: just prior to a scene of particular malice, the easily upset viewers would be warned by the sound of a bell, at which point they could shut their eyes.

    Experience the gore like never before, mastered from the newly restored original film elements, as Cannibal Girls finally makes its debut on 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.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Cannibal Swirls July 19, 2010
    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.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Bad acting and lame jokes January 16, 2013
    Format:Amazon Instant Video
    I would love to see (Mystery science theater 3000) are (the Crew) add this to their collections are possibly someone do a complete voice over comedy of it. The little bit of skin action kind of makes up for the bad acting but the lame jokes are just that lame. In some parts this film try's to take itself too seriously and in others bad jokes and even bad banter make you roll your eye. It's worth a watch if you just need a B movie to fill the gap between A and C movies. Try to rent cheap are even better watch for free with a prime membership. Have fun with it.

    Moving at a leisurely pace and told in a disjointed fashion, Cannibal Girls (1973) follows a young couple on vacation in Canada, who find themselves in the midst of great evil a small town. Directed by Ivan Reitman (Stripes, Ghostbusters), the movie features future SCTV members Andrea Martin and Eugene Levy, as an unsuspecting lovers who encounter a kooky reverend and three young women who practice cannibalism.

    When their car breaks down in the town of Farningham, young lovers Clifford Sturges (Levy) and Gloria Wellaby (Martin), take lodging at a motel, where the owner informs them of the town's legendary cannibal women. Three beautiful young ladies, who sometime in the past, made a practice of luring men to their farmhouse, where they were killed and eaten.

    Cliff and Gloria go to dine a restaurant, located in the residence of Reverend Alex St. John (Ronald Ulrich), which has a rather macabre heritage, and is also the modern home of the three cannibal girls. The travelers wind up spending the night as guests of St. John, and they experience a strange night of terror. One of the film's few really scary moments features Gloria running through the snowy woods in the dead of night. This effective scene apparently turns out to be a dream, however with many in the town aiding St. John, it is not long before the web of evil closes in, and envelops the couple.

    Shot in Canada under mostly snowy conditions, this low budget production kind of crawls along, and also meanders off track at times, but the occasional instances of violence are pretty well done, and keep things lively.
