A New York anthropologist, named Professor Harold Moore (Robert Kerman), travels to the wild, inhospitable jungles of South American with two local guides to find out what happened to a documentary film crew which disappeared nearly a year earlier while traveling into the same jungle, called the 'Green Inferno' to film a documentary about reputed cannibal tribes. After a long search and encountering a few primitive tribes, Professor Moore finds the remains of the crew and several reels of their undeveloped film. Upon returning to the USA, Professor Moore views the film in detail featuring the travels of the director Alan Yates (Gabriel York), his assistant Faye Daniels (Francesa Ciardi), and cameramen Jack Anders (Perry Pirkanen) and Mark Tomaso (Luca Giorgio Barbareschi) venturing into the jungles where the inexperienced, street-wise film group, after finding the indigenous tribes to docile for their film, decide to push them for kicks, with drastic consequences, Extream italian cannibal gore, not for the faint hearted.Previously banned all over the world. Possibly the most disturbing film ever made. A must own for fans of gory italian cinema.

5.0 out of 5 stars Moving, Graphic, Explicit, Horrific, UNMISSABLE 10 Sep 2001
Format:VHS Tape
This release is highly likely to have a high number of cuts!
Cannibal Holocaust follows the misadventures of a film making crew in South America. They fall foul of the natives while attempting to produce a documentary film of their day-to-day lives. As you may have guessed, the natives are cannibals. Que the dismemberment, beheading, impaling and the gut eating. I urge caution if this is an uncut version as the violence is extremely explicit! It is NOT for the faint hearted! The uncut version also contains a number of REAL footage of animal killings and dismemberment. Even though this film contains explicit violence, the likes of which is not seen else where, it does seem to be justified within the context of the film. It is about cannibalism, so you see cannibalism in all it's horrific glory, also, animals would be killed and butchered if you were on an expedition in the jungle. I feel the content is justified but certainly very difficult to watch. The reason why this film has been awarded 5 stars by me is due to the superbe effects, the brilliant camera work (blair-witch eat your heart out), the INCREDABLY creepy music and just the whole 'in-your faceness' of it. Highly recommended to horror fanatics and those with a strong stomach! This is a land mark, pioneering film NOT to be missed. It's infamy is deserved, you can't call yourself a film buff if you haven't seen this blood soaked original!
A truely moving, disturbing and powerful film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blu Review 66 Cannibal Holocaust 22 Oct 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Cannibal Holocaust

Distributor: Shameless Entertainment (UK)

To fully appreciate the fact that this movie is available to purchase in the UK in a near uncut form will probably require a certain amount of knowledge of the whole Video Nasties furore or at the very least first hand experience of having lived through this period. The Video Nasties phenomenon which swept through the UK in the early 80's seems now almost an impossibility given today's more relaxed standards and easy access to any movie you could wish to see via the Internet. Back in the day however, this shocking horror entry topped the UK's banned movie lists which saw collectors scouring car boot sales up and down the country in an attempt to obtain one of those dodgy bootleg video tapes as the only way to see some of their favourite withdrawn horror classics.

Years later with the advent of DVD the search moved to foreign releases with collectors importing some of these "long lost treasures" whilst hoping that the films would slip by customs authorities unnoticed to avoid certain confiscation.

With Cannibal Holocaust arguably the most famous entry on the nasties list, it was more than a little surprising when it was announced that the film was scheduled for UK release in an almost uncut print (minus a few seconds edited for animal cruelty). This print of the movie was substantially longer than even the original "banned" video release and collectors had for years resigned themselves to the fact that the film would never see anywhere near an uncut print in UK territories.

So all these years later, the most controversial movie ever made is finally available to buy in your local high street store only now it's in high definition...

5.0 out of 5 stars Still disturbing 19 Sep 2012
Cannibal Holocaust is still as disturbing now as it was 30 years ago. This isn't a movie for the faint hearted. Yes the animal killings were unnecesary but i'm a firm believer that censorship should take place before the film is shot, not afterwards.I don't like animal violence but would've rather have had the uncut version released. This new "2011 Deodato re-edit" basically addresses some of the directors and the publics concerns and exorcises some of this material. Why not all you say? well thats anyone's guess, but the BBFC have NOT cut all the animal violence out, most are redited with scratchy film inserts obscuring shots and lengthy scenes have now been trimmed down. The turtle's death is still on here as the BBFC class this as "slaughter", so it being a quick death is deemed ok. The Muskrat killing is gone coz the BBFC classifield this as unnecessary cruelty. I don't miss these scenes particularly, i've seen them on the Grindhouse U.S edition anyway.

The new blu ray print looks superb. You can actually now see what a well made film this actually is. Ruggero Deodato is a superb director.

There are 2 documentaries each running about 40 mins. One has various critics and academics discussing the controversry on the film, the other has interviews with director Deodato and star Carl Yorke. Both are worth checking out.

5.0 out of 5 stars this is not uncut 20 April 2009
i thought i should take upon myself to clarify that this is NOT the uncut version of the film. Why 'MARKY77' has decided to claim that it is i dont know but he is very wrong. The film is avaliable uncut in the US, so buy the imported disc. I should mention that cannibal holocaust is still banned in its uncut version in this country, and will remain so most likely for ever due to our beloved BBFC's policies on obscene and depraved imagery in cinema.

For those that STILL refuse to except this obviously is not the uncut version, note that the this version is 86mins long and the US import is 96mins. Need anymore clues... Also another bonus to the special edition US disc, is that it has an added extra to allow for 'free animal cruelty' that removes the animal death scenes, something i personally appreciated after suffering the scenes once already back when i owned the original pre cert vhs.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cannibal hollocust : boring rather watch paint dry
I had very high hopes of this film. I thought it was going to be a good horror movie. I found it very boring and it wasn't in English language and the story and plot was crap.
