Eli Roth showed Amazonian villagers Cannibal Holocaust, and they thought it was hilarious!
In one of the most delightfully disturbing stories you will read today, director Eli Roth screened 1980's Cannibal Holocaust for 200 Amazonian villagers
who had never seen a movie before. While Roth was scouting for locations for his own cannibal-themed movie, The Green Inferno
, he found a remote area with "no electricity, no running water, nothing." As a courtesy, he wanted to give the people living there an idea of what he was going to be doing in their backyard, so he showed them Cannibal Holocaust
, and "[t]he villagers thought it was the funniest thing they’d ever seen." So, there's your nervous, cannibalism-related giggle of the day, plus a bonus cannibal cop
