Of all of the ways that humans have proven their capacity to act inhumanely towards one another, the most terrifying, the most taboo, is anthropophagy, more commonly known as cannibalism. A practice that has existed since well before recorded history, cannibalism still exists in isolated pockets of the world today. Certain Melanesian tribes of Oceania are known to engage in cannibalism as a ritual of war, as do the Korowai of Papua, New Guinea. In Western society, however, the practice is virtually unheard of, save for those extreme cases where it was necessitated by survival and in a few horrifying cases of serial killer predation. However, several popular horror movies today are inspired by the horrific story of an inbred clan of murderers who ambushed, robbed and consumed hundreds of travelers as they made their way along the coast of Scotland.
