Faye: Jack, what do you wanna use it for, porno films? Stupid ass!
Alan: That's not a bad idea, how 'bout
Jungle Jollies?
~ Alan Yates ignoring his girlfriend Faye Daniels's objections to filming themselves raping a native girl
Here we are at the edge of the world in human history. Things like this happen all the time in the jungle; it's survival of the fittest. In the jungle, it's the daily violence of the strong overcoming the weak.
~ Alan Yates preparing to burn down a native village and pin the massacre on another tribe

Alan Yates is the main protagonist of the 1980 extremely controversial Italian exploitation film Cannibal Holocaust.

He was portrayed by Carl Gabriel Yorke.

What Makes Him Pure Evil?

  • For starters, Alan is a rather sadistic person who loves to put gritty realism in his own documentaries even if it means to hurt others along the way, as shown in his movie "The Last Road to Hell".
    • The first hint at Alan's true nature came when it was revealed he paid the Ugandan and Vietnamese armies to execute political prisoners for said documentary.
  • After one of his minions, Jack Anders, wounded an innocent man from an indigenous Yacumo tribe which resulted on Alan and his crew finding out about his village, Alan and his minions forced the people of the Yacumo tribe, children included, to stay inside a hut while he burnt it down with them inside.
  • He planned to alter the footage of his attack on the Yacumo tribe to frame it as an attack by the Ya̧nomamö for his phony documentary. He was ecstatic watching the villagers die and immediately started making out with Faye in front of the suffering Yacumo.
  • After he and his crew found the cannibalistic Yanomamo tribe, he and his minions then proceed to gangrape an innocent Yanomamo girl on the spot.
  • Afterwards, Yates and his crew are then seen laughing and joking whilst standing next to the corpse of the same girl, now impaled on a stake. When Mark Tomaso, the cameraman, announces they're filming, Alan feigns shock and announced they discovered that the girl had been killed by the "barbaric" Yanomamo tribe and that he can't imagine what kind of person would perform such cruelty, stifling a laugh as he says this. This heavily implies that Alan himself impaled the girl off camera and framed the Yanomamo tribe for it to gain footage of the tribe's "savagery".
  • He has no hesitations to sacrifice his own crew to the Yanomamo Tribe. He even shoots Jack Anders in the leg, so he could film his friend's corpse being mutilated and eaten.
  • He suddenly destroys his only redeeming quality when he seemingly felt concerned about Faye Daniels' safety. That was until Mark Tomaso, the last remaining member of his crew, convinced him to continue his film which resulted on him abandoning Faye completely without a second thought and resulted her to be gangraped, beaten to death, and beheaded. Furthermore, it's possible that he only cared about Faye because he wanted someone to have sex with, meaning he never truly loved her at all.
  • While it may seem like his friendship with Mark Tomaso is genuine at first, their interactions suggest this is more of a mutual sadism.
  • Despite Cannibal Holocaust being an Exploitation film, Alan's crimes are not played entirely for shock value, as the film has a clear message condemning sensationalism in the media.

Trivia

  • Alan Yates is the current icon of the Article Stubs template in the Pure Evil Wiki.
  • To help drive the point of Alan being Pure Evil, Alan was hated even by his own actor Carl Gabriel Yorke, who struggled while filming some of the film's scenes and has a completely opposite personality to that of his character.
