Poll Suggestion: Meet Cunhambebe, Abominable Anthropophagist

Hello, poll forum, another ideia for your review, input welcome, thank you.

During the conquest of Brazil (South America), the Europeans met a culture of cannibal fearless warriors known as the Tupinambás. For them it was an honor to valiantly die in battle and be devoured by the opponent. Valhalla lied in the enemy's stomach. Cunhambebe (? – c. 1555) was the fiercest military Chief and he himself boasted having eaten hundreds of enemies and more than 60 invading Europeans soldiers. The technologically superior Europeans were already weary of fighting the Tupinambás and when the Caetés, another human-flesh-eating tribe, shamelessly banqueted on the Pope's highest representative - Bishop Sardinha - the Portuguese resorted to the "Final Solution", biological warfare, namely the smallpox virus. Having no immunity against white-man diseases, the estimated 75,000 cannibals went extinct. Cunhambebe died of bubonic plague. (Wikipedia)

Here follows a list of movies regarding or alluding to cannibalism, fictional or historical.

Which is the most HAIR-RAISING title?

Ravenous (1999) and The Green Inferno (2013) are two other films featuring cannibalism you might want to add to the list.
