Synopsis by Mark Deming
An angry man erupts into lethal violence and must face the consequences of his actions in this horror story from Spain, which has won a cult following. Marcos (Vicente Parra) is a slaughterhouse worker whose tenuous emotional stability is pushed over the edge one day. With little provocation, he goes on a week-long bender of violence and murder, killing an annoying cab driver, his nosey fiancée, his inquisitive brother, his would-be father-in-law, and an unfortunate prostitute. The corpses begin to pile up in Marcos' apartment, and he has to find a way to dispose of them. Marcos happens to have a meat grinder, and he begins to wonder if eating his victims might be a good way to cover his tracks. Cannibal Man, also known as La Semana del Asesino and The Apartment on the 13th Floor, was one of a number of horror films banned in England in the 1980s as a "video nasty."
