See this film: Cannibal Holocaust @ftermidnight at the Coolidge

Perhaps the earliest of the found-footage horror movies, Ruggero Deodato's Cannibal Holocaust (1980) remains one of the most grotesque and frightening. It consists in part of footage supposedly shot by a film crew in South America who run afoul of indigenous people, and then some. The rest, equally disturbing, involves what happens to the film after it's brought back to civilization. The rape, mutilation, and anthropophagy of the title is horrifying, but perhaps equally disturbing is the film's indictment of the barbarism by so-called civilized people and our voyeuristic fascination with such atrocities. It screens tonight and tomorrow night in the @fter Midnite program at the Coolidge Corner Theatre, 290 Harvard St, Brookline | Friday, March 9 @ midnight | $9 | 617.734.2501 or
