Cannibal Diner is a 2012 German horror feature film directed by Frank W. Montag (Slasher) from a screenplay by co-producer Mario von Crapiewski.
The movie stars Alexandra Lesch, Kristiana Rohder, Lara Baum, Indira Madison, Violetta Schurawlow and Alexandra Jordan.
Kati (Alexandra Lesch) is a young model on her way to a birthday party for her little sister Celine. Tanja, Kati’s best friend, and other friends want to celebrate and camp near the woods. While preparing the party, the girls get attacked by strangers.
Still on the way to the camping place, Kati loses her way in the woods and is led on to the wrong track by a young female tramp. When her car is stolen afterwards, Kati finds herself lost in the deep forest and arrives at an old factory, where a clan of cannibals is already preparing their feast’s main course: Kati’s friends…
A cavalcade of attractive actresses run around in the woods filmed in high-def widescreen mode, which initially holds some promise, at least in terms of a cheap enterprise having some watchable production values.
Unfortunately, once the grunting cannibalistic mutants show up adorned in awful red-tinged make-up, Cannibal Diner becomes as tiresomely predictable as its come-on title. Worse still, the shaky ‘found footage’ finale seems to go on forever and forever and the generic metal bands on the soundtrack are part of the overall clichéd approach.
Adrian J Smith, MOVIES & MANIA
“There is no nobler of an intention on display here than to fill the screen with breasts and beasts as a sleazy appeal to the stoner set of easily amused horror moviegoers. The film is not even ashamed of the fact that it blatantly apes scenes from The Texas Chain Saw Massacre shot for shot as if Gus Van Sant himself were behind the lens.” Culture Crypt
