Blind Item #11 - Reader Blind

This deceased actor was making a movie on another continent.  This was a follow-up to a very successful film he made that had something to do with a mode of transport and became a cultural phenomenon.

At this point in his life, the actor was very strung-out and was notorious for his ingestion of substances.  During the filming of this movie which went over deadline and budget, he partook in some dark pleasures offered by the locals.

One that he especially enjoyed was the consumption of human flesh which he did one night at a ritual.  In fact, he would over the years even after he was sober and until his death from time to time purchase this on the black market and indulge this cannibalistic desire.

David Carridine?

Well, now I'm hungry!

Vita said...

Someone from the film Death on the Nile? E-gads, this is a stomach- churner!

I know Peter Ustinov and David Niven were in the film, and known to imbibe. I love old clips of them as great raconteurs, I don't want that association replaced with cannibalism!😵

IndieRaga said...

What movies are shot in Papua New Guinea/Borneo those places?

Zebra Seasoning said...

I'm thinking Albert Finney, Murder on the Orient Express? But I can't figure the followup movie.

s.s. said...

I was thinking Dennis Hopper or Peter Fonda after Easy rider they did "the Last Movie"

MothMoon said...

I did not know this existed. How horrible.

s.s. said...

"Last Movie" was filmed in Peru...

ilovesunglasses said...

Hopper. Easy Rider. Apocalypse Now

Vita said...

Good question, IndieRaga.

I guessed Death on the Nile bc it is the sequel to Murder on the Orient Express, which is the movie I GUESSED the first paragraph might be talking about????

IndieRaga said...

Robert Kerman-Cannibal Holacaust.
Earlier movie Concorde about mode of transportation ?

s.s. said...

"Last Movie" was hyped as a sort of follow-up to Easy Rider, "Apocalypse Now" was much later..

Vita said...

Zebra Seasoning...Albert Finney is a great guess, but if Im right on the sequel, he wasnt in it!

IndieRaga said...

Eaten Alive! Shot before Cannibal Holacoust, in Papua New Guinea.

s.s. said...

Ok if it was a sequel, Enty would have said "sequel"--you do know the diff---right? --sequel--followup, they are not the same thing...

Zebra Seasoning said...

@Vita- that's what was stumping me.

It says the director was arrested and had to prove that didn't kill that actress

Happy Thanksgiving ....

I think you have it. I watched Cannibal Holocaust. What a bore of a movie. They did kill the animals that were eaten so it wouldn't surprise me if weird things happened after hours. I don't know much about the movie if the villagers were hired actors or the real deal. They didn't appear to look like actors to me.

Once you eat a fellow human being and unless its for survival like ALIVE then you've crossed a line you can never come back from.

Vita said...

S.S.- Actually, that never occurred to me, lol! However, to quibble, it says, "This was a follow-up to a very successful...." I guess, in my mind, if the films weren't connected, it would just say, "This was his next film after..." ? But, clearly, grammar and I aren't always simpatico.

Pissoff said...

What a crock.

Simon Jenkin said...

idk who this is but i know what it smells like: B.S.

IndieRaga said...

I remember seeing the impalement pic more than 10 yrs ago,so graphic still recall it !
A quick reverse search lead to even horrifying outcome!

Vita said...

I love the connection of the Concorde and Cannibal Holocaust...However, I looked up Robert Kerman to see if he was a known partier, etc. I said he was largely a porn actor. Wouldn't that have been mentioned in clue? No disrespect, IndieRaga, Im just trying to see if anyone knows if he matches actor description

IndieRaga said...

Oh no issues Vita,even I want a reveal to this monster!

Vita said...

Exactly! And that movie sounds horrifying, regardless if it's the right one here!

S.S.-- Going back to your guesses, it could be Dennis Hopper in Peru for Last Movie (I don't know who perform what rituals there). He certainly was known to ingest various substances, and then was sober for many years before death.

Genuinely disturbing!

TeeHee@U said...

The cast from Deliverance was also there...roasting Ned Beaty. But, at least the is site is becoming more 'woke." Rather than eating a pig vs. cannibalism.

Count Jerkula said...

Hopefully it was child or woman meat, so it didn't taste gamey.

I wonder if they fry up the circumscised clits in Africa?

COWPIE said...

Black market? If he was friends with Jeffrey Epstein, he could have easily hooked him up.

Gen-z99 said...

Well they all eat babies/people...

John Doe said...

Klaus Kinski, just throwing it out there.

Ebb said...

Wish I could take back those 30 seconds it took to read this blind. Gross.

Dane said...

Hopper does not surprise me one bit.

Rob Zero said...

Dennis Hopper. Last Movie was shot in Peru.

Somehow I never thought of this as available. But capitalism has moral blindness.

In Africa, albino Africans have a real and current fear of being killed and eaten. I never thought of a Westerner taking advantage of that trade, but that would be an easy access point.

I believe some Voodun practitioners might have a small trade in this. I don't know about any Chinese trade for eating or medicinal use. Any South Pacific trade I think might be unlikely as traditionally it is for personal use.

Outside of African albinos, the other possibilities for cannabalistic use are not choosey. So, a misplaced corpse or body part from an ordinary corrupt funeral home would be accessible.

To be perfectly honest, there might be deals all the time about this, even in the US. There is just a very low chance of it getting discovered. Just one employee at a crematorium, when there is no family to check that the body is intact before the procedure.

Why am I commenting on this?

Brayson87 said...

That's one benefit of embalming, poison the flesh so nobody will be munching on you later.

Jan 15 said...

@Brayson87 Ew, very true.

Oh, and water "cleansing," where they clean the body of flesh, would have the bones left to be counted. I'm mentioning that as embalming is not environmentally friendly.

Puddy said...

Klaus Kinski and Fitzcarraldo.

Do Cannibal Holocaust and The Last Movie have anything to do with modes of transport?

Brayson87 said...

@Jan, My goodness, they carry those donation organs around in lunch coolers, it's been right in front of us the whole time! ;)

Jan 15 said...

@Brayson87 Goodness. That is true!

bollybiy said...

Deceased actor = Klaus Kinski, notorious wildman and substance abuser

Continent = Africa, specifically Ghana and Benin

Successful film that had something to do with mode of transport = Fitzcarraldo (Werner Herzog, 1982), about an attempt to start a steamboat line in South America. A documentary on the making of the film, Burden of Dreams, was also an art house hit.

Follow up = Cobra Verde (Herzog, 1987). It was the first film Kinski made with Herzog after Fitzcarraldo. Also, some scenes were filmed in Brazil, and so marked a return by the star and director to the country in which parts of the earlier film had been made. (I think it's far more likely that the alleged cannibalism would take place in West Africa, where most of was shot).

Paul Bearer said...

If this blind is real, my guess would be Dennis Hopper, The Last Movie.

Easy Rider was indeed a “cultural phenomenon” about a mode of transportation (motorcycles)

The Last Movie was his follow up, and went way over budget.

Katy Perry has admitted to eating human flesh, many celebs do. They attend Spirit Cooking parties hosted by Marina Abramovic, a Serbian born performance artist, satanic influencer.
Pictures of Perry and Lady Gaga attending these "Dinner Parties" can be found online.

AbbyRock said...

For those who are not aware:

It's restaurant in LA. Not sure if there are other locations.

Rosie riveter said...

Thanks Enty. I mean "reader"
Im totally positive this absolutely happened

Alana said...

@AbbyRock Does that restaurant serve real human flesh???

SlimKeith said...

The first thing that randomly popped in my head wasDean Jones and the Volkswagon Beatle in Herbie the love Bug. i'm sorta kidding tho...The Beatle was HUGE when those Love ABug movies came out in the 60's 70's..there were lines all around the block. Jones had a Disney image as a family man but he was actually an alcoholic and womanizer. He came to Jesus in the mid-70's.

I think it's Klaus Kinsky for the win! A very strange fellow. I watched a documentary on the making of Fitzcarraldo (sp) years ago, it was probably one of the most hellish shots in history. That boat! What were they thinking. Fascinating story-behind the scenes and the film is amazing as well. A real triumph of the will.

BRAD PITT said...

deceased actor = dennis hopper

mode of transport = motorbike

a cultural phenomenon = easy rider

notorious for his ingestion of substances = dennis hopper

people thought Dennis Hopper had the symptoms of Parkinson's but it was actually kuru

Eowyn said...

Thumbs up @BRAD PITT

No movie with Klaus Klinski became a cultural phenomenon.

GentleBreeze said...

Jesus Christ.
Eating human flesh is not sustainable for human life. To think it's somehow cool is despicable. (and no, I'm not a Roman Catholic).
If those folks in Alive had not been saved, they would have suffered from a fatal fungal disease from eating human flesh.

Randzy said...

Its Hopper. He had Kuru.

Erin said...

Hey Jan! There are rogue funeral homes and crematoriums in the world that make my profession look horrible, but I promise you, we are all just a bunch of regular peeps who are governed by compassion for the families we all serve. It is a common belief that we "take out all the insides" when we embalm - not true. We only make a few (2-3) small incisions during embalming. When someone has been autopsied, their "insides" are sampled, observed and weighed by the ME, then put back inside the person - and that is where they stay. Failure to follow these laws is considered mutilation of a corpse and it is a crime. There are embalming reports that are made on each case,and are reviewed by management and the Commission. Fellow directors are in and out of the prep room - always double-checking everything.

Erin said...

Embalming fluids have become much more earth-friendly in the past decade or so, which is a very good thing.

I am not familiar with 'water cleansing" in the modern-day funeral world. Do you mean alkaline hydrolysis?

Jan 15 said...

@Erin

In replying to you, I found the words in my original comment that were sloppy. I wrote “…an ordinary corrupt funeral home….” I should have phrased it as "a seemingly ordinary, but corrupt employee at a funeral home." My phrasing did imply that all funeral homes are corrupt, which is incorrect, unfair, and not my belief. My apologies for the implications and thank you for pointing that out.

When I wrote my words I was thinking about the court accounts of a necrophiliac who was employed by multiple funeral homes. Someone who did indeed defile a body, and who is not in any way a mainstream employee, but an aberration who got caught.

Yes, Alkaline hydrolysis was what I meant. Thank you.

I am not in the industry, and I appreciate your corrections and the thought behind them. My words were not intended to wound, and they could have been taken that way, and I am sorry for that.

My very best to you.

IndieRaga said...

OMG.....is this real or just an online hoax ?
Isn't this illegal?In my country you'd get arrested and tried for manslaughter,behind bars for life!
WTF?

AbbyRock said...

Yes, Alana, they serve real human flesh.

Erin said...

Jan - you are too kind! I promise you I wasn't offended at all! We funeral directors want to "lift the veil" so everyone can be informed about what we really do. No offense read in your posting and no offense taken! :)

Count Jerkula said...

Why "earth friendly" embalming fluids? Arent coffins sealed, thats why they float up when New Orleans floods, if there is no vault? When Jews use the pine box, they dont embalm the corpse, right? Back to the earth and all?

Clark Green said...

I think Heath Ledger fits this blind.

MissDavie said...

David Carradine had been an out of control freak for years...running around stoned out of his mind naked in Laurel Canyon since the 60s. The community of hippies and his inherited wealth and fame protected him. Then he got money, fame and power by having his own hit series and could move the party to Beverly Hills and later around the world. It's a miracle he didn't (or he did and we don't know about it) kill many people.
This fits with his profile.

MissDavie said...

Klaus Kinski fits too...another sick, sick man. I agree with above who said it's a "thing" with big celebrities doing it now and the "Spirit Cooking" woman who has the highest connections in Hollywood and D.C.

riffer73 said...

Lol! Best thread in a while.

ZenDragon98 said...

If this blind is to be believed? It sounds a lot closer to Dennis Hopper than all the other candidates mentioned on this post. David Carridine, Robert Kerman and Albert Finney never made a movie that is considered a "cultural phenomenon" especially one that involved a mode of transportation. However, Dennis Hopper did.

After the huge success of "Easy Rider" both commercially and critically Dennis Hopper was one of the hottest directors/actors in Hollywood by the end of the 1960's. Hopper's highly anticipated follow-up film was (1971) "The Last Movie" shot in Peru which has a dark ancient history of Paganistic rituals involving human sacrifice and cannibalism (i.g. the Mel Gibson movie "Apocalypto"). And, many of these ancients pagan sites involving human sacrifice still can be visited today in Peru and throughout South America and Mexico.

While the local population of Peru is mostly Catholic/Christian today and has been for the last several centuries since the conquest and colonization by western Europeans, mainly by the Spaniards and Portuguese. However, a certain percent of the indigenous people of Peru have blended their traditional Pagan beliefs with that of their Catholic faith. While an even smaller percentage still practice their ancient Pagan beliefs today without any influence from the west.

Dennis Hopper, being the drugged out counter-culture rogue that he was back in the day, possibly hooked-up with Peru's own counter-culture of pagan practitioners and participated in some of their rather dark rituals. While on drugs of coarse.

Which may explain why Dennis Hopper descended into a state of paranoid violent delusions during the making and editing of "The Last Movie" which ran way over time and budget to finish. It wasn't just the drugs, it was the combination of drugs and participation in satanic pagan rituals of cannibalism, and who knows what else.

At one time, the producers wanted to take control of the movie away from Dennis Hopper and have someone else edit the film to salvage what they could. But, Hopper was such a "hot director" at the time that he had it in his contract that he had final-cut and say over the movie. The movie came out and it was a total disaster.

Personally, I find it hard to believe that Dennis Hopper continued this appetite for eating human flesh after he sobered up and got his career back-on-track by the late 70's and 80's after the huge disaster of "The Last Movie" that almost ruined his life and career. I mean, if you can kick the heroine and cocaine addiction, then cannibalism shouldn't be any problem for you. But, who knows? Maybe Dennis Hopper did continue cannibalism, but I doubt it.

Betty Rubble said...

John Candy. Planes, Trains and Automobiles.

AIP said...

I know I’m late to the party, but for a giggle, how about Humphrey Bogart with the successful film being African Queen and the follow-up Beat the Devil. Although both are set in east Africa which doesn’t have that tradition or reputation.

But the “cultural phenomenon” would suggest Easy Rider and whatever Hopper’s next film was.
