Coming Soon To Blu-ray – Cannibal Holocaust (Grindhouse Releasing) – July 1

Love it or hate it, and for whatever reason, Cannibal Holocaust carved its own spot in cult movie infamy, and it has such staying power that it is not going away. Once Grindhouse Releasing made their return, and started releasing films to Blu-ray, I wondered instantly if things like Pieces and Cannibal Holocaust would get the High-Def treatment, and it appears that I have my answer. Though Pieces hasn’t been announced for a Blu-ray yet, Cannibal Holocaust has, and now we have not only a final release date, but a list of the treasure trove of bonus content that comes along with it. Get your pre-orders in, kids. Now is the time.

Blu-ray Review - Cannibal Holocaust (Ruggero Deodato's New Edit), 2011

Cannibal Holocaust (Ruggero Deodato's New Edit), 2011.

Directed by Ruggero Deodato.

Starring Robert Kerman, Francesca Ciardi, Carl Gabriel Yorke, Perry Pirkanen, Luca Barbareschi, Salvatore Basile and Ricardo Fuentes.

Synopsis:

An anthropologist ventures into the Amazon in search of a missing American documentary film crew and retrieves their footage, which documents the gruesome truth behind the ill-fated expedition.

After premiering at Cine-Excess V this May, director Ruggero Deodato’s newest cut of the notorious ‘video nasty’ Cannibal Holocaust now arrives here in the U.K. on Blu-ray courtesy of Shameless Screen Entertainment, delivering what must surely be the most complete edit of the cult shocker likely to gain approval by the British Board of Film Classification. Although fifteen seconds of cuts remain, this latest incarnation restores almost six minutes to the previous Vipco home entertainment release, including the majority of the infamous unsimulated animal killings – a hugely contentious ((and utterly appalling

Where Everyone Has Gone Before #24: 'Cannibal Holocaust'

Filed under: Columns, Horror, Cinematical

Welcome to Where Everyone Has Gone Before, the weekly column where I continue my film education before your very eyes by seeking out and watching all of the movies I should have seen by now. I will first judge the movie before I've watched it, based entirely on its reputation (and my potentially misguided thoughts). Then I will give the movie a fair chance and actually watch it. You will laugh at me, you may condemn me, but you will never say I didn't try!

Starring: Robert Kerman, Francesca Ciardi, Perry Pirkanen and Luca Barbareschi.

Why I Haven't Seen It Until Now: I have a serious moral quandary with one of the more infamous aspects of this film. But we'll get to that momentarily. It also has something to do with me being a little behind on my Italian horror cinema,
