EZC Presents – A Cannibal Triple Feature



The Hills Have Eyes (1977, dir. Wes Craven)
A hapless family of city folks break down in the Californian desert and find themselves stranded in the hunting grounds of a family of in-bred cannibals. After spending the night under siege, the survivors fight back against the cannibals, discovering hidden talents for violence.
Based loosely on the old Scottish tale of Sawney Beane, this is up there with The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Southern Comfort as a classic of the redneck violence genre.
Troglodytes (2011, dir. Thanos Kermitsis)
In the office of a psychologist, a war veteran starts reminiscing his so far untold war experiences…. sometimes, the horror is still there, even when everything else is over.
A cheeky, unauthorised adaption of Gordon Rennie’s Tunnel Rats, this short film turned out to be a pretty decent effort.

C.H.U.D. (1984, dir. Douglas Cheek)
A rash of bizarre murders in New York City seems to point to a group of grotesquely deformed vagrants living in the sewers. A policeman, a photo journalist and his girlfriend, and a nutty bum, who seems to know a lot about the creatures, band together to try and determine what the creatures are and how to stop them.
Cannibal tramps. Do you really need an more explanation as to why this is a great film?
