Product Description

A group of documentary filmmakers head out to the South American jungle in seach of real-life cannibals. When they fail to send messages home their colleagues begin to worry and, six months later, send out a second expedition to look for them. However, after travelling deep into the jungle, the only evidence the second team manage to find of the first is their cans of exposed film footage, footage which shows them to have been successful in their search, far too successful in fact. 'Cannibal Holocaust' was banned in the UK in 1982 and only received a certificate at the start of the new millennium.

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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exploitation of high quality trash 17 April 2011
By Zaroff
Courting controversy even as it was made, all charges of murder in italy were dropped for the director Deodato & co. when the film originally came out & found its way to court. However, animal cruelty charges were made, 4 month suspended sentences for those concerned, it has been claimed. Deodato was declaimed as sadistic by his co-workers at the time but has since expressed regret, particularly for the animal suffering therein. He has expressed opinions on possibly toning down the suffering for other releases. Bearing in mind the film is banned in many countries merely acts as a cape to a bull, daring people to take on the shocking display like a toreador.

Its a well made, dare i say it, 'pseudo-mondo', bearing in mind that mondos often contained pseudo-footage themselves. Cannibal Holocaust bears all the hallmarks of cine-verite coupled to standard exploitation narrative of the time, making both styles stand out all the more when fused together with the editing techniques used here. It veers from ludicrous to very convincing in a heartbeat.

The result of having two versions of the film here, allows the usually highly opinionated individuals who are drawn to this genre of film, to appreciate two forms of thought when watching what is essentially exploitation as art. One where the fullest print possible is made available of significant archival importance and secondly a print that allows a larger proportion of viewers to watch a work/exercise without being bludgeoned with real suffering. This blur of filming techniques & the ratio of real to faked footage can be seen to detract from ones ability to distinguish 'truth' from 'fictional' footage, which gives the film such power.

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.
