Welcome to HORROR MOVIE PODCAST, where we’re Dead Serious About Horror Movies. This is Episode 075, another themed episode, where we discuss Cannibals in Horror Cinema and dissect the horrors of the other white meat. We begin with our usual, in-depth discussion and analysis of the theme itself and a number of notable film entries to the sub-genre. And we conclude with two Feature Reviews of recent entries Bone Tomahawk (2015) and Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno (2015). Join us, or we’ll eat you!
