Cannibalism is one of the oldest and strongest cultural taboos we possess - and as such, it has been a ripe subject for storytelling and filmmaking for as long as stories have been told and films have been made. The cannibalism subgenre has given rise to plenty of classic films and long-running franchises, from The Texas Chain Saw Massacre to the debonair cannibal antagonist of The Silence of the Lambs, Dr. Hannibal Lecter, and everything in between. The cannibal clan of The Hills Have Eyes, possibly inspired by the real-life stories of Sawney Bean, have been the basis of two separate franchises, while the hillbilly cannibals of Wrong Turn have kept their franchise going strong for a half-dozen films or more. Italian filmmakers have turned this particular subgenre into a cottage industry, with flicks like Cannibal Holocaust so notorious that they need no introduction.

Alongside these well-known classics, however, there are plenty of other movies about cannibalism that are less famous but no less deserving of attention. Vote up the human-eating films that you think are worthy of a second course.
