Anthropophagy aka Cannibals!

"Cannibalism is always 'symbolic' even when it is real"
- Marshall Sahlins.
Attempting a comprehensive list of films featuring cannibalism. A work in progress. I will eventually organise chronologically; in no particular order.
A film will only qualify if the cannibalistic act is committed by a living human being. Zombies & other supernatural beings do not qualify, different dynamic & thematic meaning.
All suggestions welcome, no matter how obscure or how minor an element of the film the cannibalism is.
If I've listed something that doesn't actually contain cannibalism, or instead fits into a non-human cannibalism category, please do let me know & I'll remove it.
