Cannibal-Holocaust-Blu-rayIt’s advertised as “the one that goes ALL THE WAY!” Ruggero Deodato’s controversial 1980 cult film, Cannibal Holocaust, features a human feeding frenzy after a South American cannibal tribe selects a group of documentary filmmakers to be their next meal. A big influence on Eli Roth's The Green Inferno, Cannibal Holocaust is making a comeback to the silver screen this fall via Grindhouse Releasing.

"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 has influenced many filmmakers, most recently providing 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.

A complete list of screenings can be found at Home viewers can get Grindhouse Releasing’s bestselling Blu-ray/DVD release now at Diabolik DVD, and other retailers.
