The horror flick is not for a chicken heart not everyone can dare to watch the cruel cannibalism on screen.

The group is then caught by a cannibal tribe finally killing them one after another as stated by VC Post.

Roth mentioned that, not all the movies are loved and liked universally, they are created simply to observe the reactions that come up after provocation.
