After a long sabbatical Fact is Stranger than Fiction Friday is back. How often do we hear of a horror film being based on a true story only to find out that it's merely loosely based on several different events that may or may not have happened? You get the idea. This week we look at Japan's celebrity cannibal.
If you are anything like me the nearest you have ever got to meeting a cannibal is to pop Silence of the Lambs in to the DVD player and lust over Lecter's pure abandon. He makes you fear him and like him all at once, but that's just make believe. Safe. A real cannibal's need to feed is far stronger than our worst hunger pains. And is more frenzied than any starved animal. And just like a wild animal, cannot be tamed.
