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

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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
