Donald Pleasence is great in that film.  Director Gary Sherman has made a few interesting horror/"cult" films over the years. I would recommend Dead & Buried, which features Jack Albertson's final film role.

Just started watching the first clip just to get a feel for it, and I was confronted with two things:

1) the skeeviest opening theme song ever recorded
2) this:

He was running the 'Th Frampton Institute for Cinemagraphic Makeup' until recently, no mention of guitar or talk box though.

So Harry Frampton is his daddy?  He designed the makeup.  Peter just slapped it on, I guess.

That was pretty good.  And what a cast!  So many familiar faces.

Wow that poster is much more exciting than the movie I think. The cannibal didn't really die in the end so it's wide open for a sequel or even a reboot! But where would we get the $6400 to shoot it up to that standard?

I felt bad for the cannibal.  What made the movie, though, was Donald Pleasence's performance and the able support of Norman Rossington.  Also entertaining were Christopher Lee's peculiar cameo and Mr. Richard Bucket (Clive Swift) as the pedantic, soft-spoken Inspector Richardson.

Plus the boyfriend was Alan Ladd's son/Cheryl (née Stoppelmoor)'s erstwhile hubby!

The Christopher Lee cameo was really weird, it's like the director dropped into Lee's apartment on the way to the set that morning to say ''Hi'' and he had the day off and was game so they wrote the part in.
