Poster of The Cannibal Man

The film is a classic not only of exploitation but of Spanish cinema... Cannibal is one of those rare films that examines the roles people have in society and how those roles sometimes make us a little crazy. If you like Hitchcock, you’ll like Cannibal Man.

Danny Shipka, Perverse Titillation: The Exploitation Cinema of Italy, Spain and France, 1960-1980 (McFarland, 2011)
