This scene was examined by Italian courts to determine whether or not special effects were used.
When Cannibal Holocaust was originally released in Italy, people believed that it was a genuine snuff film, where actors were murdered so that their deaths could be made into a movie. The film was confiscated ten days after its premiere in Milan, and the director Ruggero Deodato was arrested. The actors had signed contracts with him ensuring that they would not appear publicly for one year after the films release, in order to promote the idea that the film was truly the recovered footage of missing documentarians.
They created the impaling effect by putting a bike seat on the lower half of the stick for the actress to sit on, while she balanced a piece of balsa wood in her mouth
it’s not illegal?? not anymore ?? at least i don’t think so like even if it was it’s not like. cops at the police station will sniff the air like “I SMELL TEENS SMOKING WEED” and come bust down the door
it’s illegal if you’re under the age of either 18 or 21 i thought?? but yeah that’s true
