If ever there was a movie that would seem like an unlikely choice for a video game adaptation, it's Cannibal Holocaust. Since its release in 1980, the film has been considered one of the most controversial horror movies of all-time. As such, today's announcement of a Cannibal Holocaust game came as a bit of a shock to a lot of horror fans. Some are excited about the prospect, while several others wish that a different horror franchise would get the video game treatment. The new game will actually serve as a fourth chapter in director Ruggero Deodato's saga, and it should give some major new exposure to the concepts of the original film.

2020 is off to a weird start.
The Cooking Mama controversy was the wildest gaming news to happen this year. Nothing could possibly top that.
Oh wait they just announced a video game based on the 1980s exploitation horror film Cannibal Holocaust. Okay.— Tomokocchi (@itsTomokocchi) April 8, 2020
Goldblum's expression sums it up nicely.

The real question is, what horror movie gets adapted next???
Why are people making a Cannibal Holocaust video game? I want to know WHY?!— Alonzo Tompkins (@Retrosoul22) April 8, 2020
I would definitely take a game based on Halloween.
There's a ton of horror movies that would work as video games and we get Cannibal Holocaust.— Bern the Egypt Cat (@MunBreaker) April 8, 2020
Now, there's an idea!
A Cannibal Holocaust video game existing should only open the door for more horror movie video games. What I'm saying here is give me a puppet master video game.— Jetmcfancy (@Markofgray) April 8, 2020
Add House of the Dead and MadWorld to that list!
The fact Cannibal Holocaust is getting a video game adaptation is a great reminder that a massive amount of video games wouldn't exist without exploitation/grindhouse cinema. pic.twitter.com/wmYW7iKroW— Liam Pendergast (@neonwhite900) April 8, 2020
Why not both?
