Cannibal Holocaust

Question: Because the camera is hand-held, it's hard to get a clear picture of what is going on from time to time. Can anyone tell me why the filmmakers had to cut the leg off of their guide, as shown in the footage?

Answer: He was bitten on the foot by a poisonous spider that was hiding in his boot. They cut his leg off to stop the poison from spreading.

The director eventually had to present the actors to police to clear his name, and had to demonstrate how some of the gore effects (such as the impalement) were achieved.
