If you know me, you know that there’s nothing I love more than cannibals! Well, maybe zombies, but there’s some shared traits there…but I really love cannibal movies. So, when The Bisbee Cannibal Club appeared in my inbox, I couldn’t have been more excited! That excitement dried up, quickly, when I started watching the movie.
The story here is set in Bisbee Arizona, a small town that has an extraordinary amount of vegetarians in it. Well, since grain fed beef is best, it only makes sense that grain fed humans would taste best too, right? So, a small club of cannibals are systematically finding vegans, following them, killing them and taking them back to their clubhouse for a barbecue! Soon, some other locals discover this happening and form their own club, the Bisbee Cannibal Hunters! Now the hunters and the cannibals begin a game of cat and mouse that couldn’t be less tense if they tried. Bisbee seems to be a town populated almost exclusively by either cannibals or hunters…and a handful of vegans and a couple of tourists. And, the ending is so over the top strange, that it’s just not believable.
Now, I know that was clearly meant to be a ‘tongue in cheek’ horror movie, but it never felt that way, it felt more like a group of people trying to make a movie without a script…or budget. I’d give them an A for effort, but an F on execution.
I’m giving The Bisbee Cannibal Club 1 out of 4 cigars, if you like a good cannibal movie, then keep looking, this isn’t one of them, the cannibals are weirder than the vegans they attack and the hunters are even stranger still!
