Cannibal Review

"I want nothing to remain of me..."

Here is a film based on the true story of Armin Meiwes, a cannibal from Germany. With minimal dialogue from beginning to end, the story doesn't leave anything to the imagination. Providing a great setting to get into your head and rattle things around, this is also NOT a movie you want to watch if you have a weak stomach.

You may want to do a little research on Meiwes before watching this film, considering it begins and ends with the 'guts' of the story and doesn't provide much background. Meiwes went searching for a volunteer victim via the internet and was able to find someone willing to fulfill his fantasy, Bernd-Jurgen Brandes.

If you have any desire or interest in seeking the inner workings of a cannibalistic mind, you should definitely view this. With a running time of just under 90 minutes, it won't consume your entire day. I strongly recommend this movie to all of the twisted minds out there, enjoy ;)

Here is a link to the history of this event: Armin Meiwes (fyi, this movie runs 48 minutes...but worth watching before the film)
