MEAT IS MURDER! An Illustrated Guide to Cannibal Culture - By Mikita Brottman

MEAT IS MURDER! An Illustrated Guide to Cannibalism - By Mikita Brottman

Violent death, murder, mutilation, eating, defecation, ritualism and bodily extremes - cannibalism combines all or many of these themes to represent one of the most symbolically charged narratives in the human psyche's repertoire.

As a grotesque figure of power - the cannibal has played a formidable role in all cultures throughout history from earliest times - oral, written, films etc. - It embodies the ultimate extent of transgressive behavior that a human being can be driven to.

MEAT IS MURDER ! is a unique and explicit exploration into cannibalism, from classical myths and early primitive natives to contemporary films, fiction and real-life modern age cannibals like Albert Fish, Ed Gein, Jeffery Dahmer and Andrei Chikatilo - and features an in-depth study of cannibalism in the cinema from mondo and exploitation films to horror and art house movies. Includes Film Index.
