10. CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST (Italy, 1980)

Speaking of Italy, this film is an Italian & American production. In this case, I’m broadening my definition of Latino to people descended of Latin-speakers, and on that basis this film made the list. It’s shot in part in the Amazon if you want to be self righteous in your definition of Latino… Cannibal Holocaust is the grandaddy of found footage films (i.e. Blair Witch Project, Paranormal Activity, V/H/S, [REC]). If you want to see where these present day filmmakers got their inspiration, check this film out. But be warned, it is NOT FOR THE QUEASY. It is so incredibly disgusting and gory that the filmmakers were accused of making a snuff film. It was rumored that people were actually killed on screen! These accusations, of course, were all B.S. and it just added to the intrigue. To this day, it’s a cult sensation.
