Cannibal

Now Playing Synopsis: An esteemed Spanish tailor with a taste for human flesh falls in love with a beautiful Romanian immigrant who's searching for her missing sister in this thriller from director Manuel Martín Cuenca. Carlos lives in Granada, Spain, where his talent for crafting impeccable suits has earned him an impressive list of affluent clients. What those clients don't realize is that Carlos is a killer driven by an unthinkable hunger. Carlos craves flesh, and he has no qualms about killing to satisfy his insatiable need. Despite feeling as though his gruesome double life has eroded his capacity for love, however, this cold-blooded killer begins to experience an unexpected warmth when he encounters a young Romanian woman whose twin sister has vanished without a trace. The more Carlos deceives the unsuspecting innocent, the closer they grow until there is no longer any denying the sinister secret he has hidden for so long. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Antonio de la Torre, Olimpia Melinte Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
