One of the greatest, most controversial and daring horror films ever made, the shocking but brilliant Cannibal Holocaust, is returning to US cinemas this month in time for Halloween.
Sadly Ruggero Deodato’s groundbreaking shocker is not coming to UK cinemas, but that won’t stop be celebrating the fact the US are blessed with such a re-release. It makes me extremely happy knowing that the film is still relevant enough to warrant a re-release, and it also makes me happy knowing there will be horror fans out there seeing this masterpiece for the first time.
Here is the official press release:
Grindhouse Releasing brings director Ruggero Deodato’s notorious horror classic CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST back to the big screen starting this weekend at Landmark Theatres across the United States.
CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST tells the story of four documentary filmmakers who experience brutal death at the hands of a savage South American tribe of flesh-eaters. The film is so intense, so graphic, and so unflinching in its realism that the director and producer of CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST were arrested on its original release and the film was seized.
CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST was the direct inspiration for director Eli Roth’s new horror film THE GREEN INFERNO. The film stars Robert Kerman, Francesca Ciardi, and Carl Gabriel Yorke. Moviegoers are warned: This is the original, uncut version of CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST, and its strong content may upset some viewers.
