Gloria doesn't believe cannibalism exists, but that notion is ripped to shreds when she and her companions are targeted as meals for a rain forest tribe that's been pushed over the edge. Serving as an inspiration for Eli Roth's The Green Inferno and still leaving viewers feeling queasy nearly 34 years after its initial release, Umberto Lenzi's 1981 Italian exploitation horror film, Cannibal Ferox, was once banned in 31 countries but has received more love over the years as more and more people have discovered its palpable practical effects and uncompromising storytelling.

Having released Ruggero Deodato's Cannibal Holocaust on Blu-ray this past summer, the folks at Grindhouse Releasing are bringing Cannibal Ferox to Blu-ray with a new 2k transfer and a slew of special features, including never-before-seen deleted scenes, an abundance of cast and crew interviews, audio commentary by director Umberto Lenzi and star John Morghen, a new feature-length documentary on Italian cannibal cinema, a CD of Budy Maglione's soundtrack for the film, and much more for fans to dig into.

Grindhouse Releasing's Cannibal Ferox Blu-ray is now available to pre-order for $25.99 and will be released on May 12th.

Here it is! The original uncensored, unrated director's cut of one of the most notorious and violent films of all time. Banned in 31 countries, CANNIBAL FEROX assaults your senses as a group of Americans lost in the jungles of Amazonia experience brutal retribution at the hands of bloodcrazed cannibals. Shot on location in the savage Amazon wilds of South America, CANNIBAL FEROX is one of the most violent and shocking films ever made. There are at least two dozen scenes of barbaric torture and sadistic cruelty graphically shown. If the presentation of disgusting and repulsive subject matter upsets you, please do not view this film.
