Cannibal Holocaust (1980) is a controversial exploitation film which was banned in Australia (where the ban has since been lifted), Germany, the United Kingdom and Italy, due to its depiction of graphic rape, torture, and the killings of real animals. It was conceived by Gianfranco Clerici and Giorgio Stegani, and made under the direction of Ruggero Deodato with a budget of around 100,000 USD. It is probably the best-known and most financially successful of the exploitation subgenre of Italian cannibal films.

Cannibal Holocaust is often claimed to be banned in almost 60 countries (the IMDb states it holds the world record for the film banned in the most countries . The exact number has never been verified, however, as the producers have never released an actual list of the countries which have banned the film.
