From the mid 1970's until around the mid 1980's, a slew of chiefly Italian films were made that are known as cannibal films, and are considered to form one of the most extreme subgenres of horror. The premise for every film involves civilized, predominantly white protagonists venturing into remote South American/Asian jungles and encountering tribes of dark-skinned human-eaters. The tropes for these films are quite consistent, possibly because most of the films essentially ripped off one of three cannibal films that enjoyed financial success. These tropes include:

* Sadly, almost every cannibal film made in this period features animal cruelty either from wildlife footage or in scenes created for the film. This aspect of the films both cements their infamy as a subgenre and their notoriety as going further down the path of moral decadence than most other horror films.

* ''TheGreenInferno'', an upcoming and much more faithful Genre Throwback (just look at the title!) by Creator/EliRoth. Features a tribe never filmed before, whose introduction to movies was Cannibal Holocaust - they agreed to filming after deciding that it was the funniest thing they had ever seen.

* [[MightyWhitey The triumph of the white man]] (possibly the only brand of horror films where guys actually have a fighting chance, provided, of course, that they are white). This triumph can come in the form of successfully escaping the jungle or establishing a positive relationship with the savages, using gizmos and measured hand gestures.
