Violent low-budget horror. Two Vietnam veterans return from the war carrying a deadly cannibal virus, contracted when one of the men was bitten by a POW. Norman Hopper (James Saxon) tries to resist the lure of human flesh after his friend bites a waitress and starts spreading the disease, but before long he has joined him in an orgy of cannibal violence.

During Vietnam, Norman Hopper is sent on a rescue mission to find POW's. After a shootout between Hopper's team and the enemy, they come across Charlie Bukowski and Tom Thompson who are being kept in a pit. Hopper makes a gruesome discovery, the two are chowing down on the flesh of a human being. Suddenly Thompson bites a chunk out of Hopper's arm, when Hopper wakes up to reveal he was dreaming about what happened a few years earlier. Later that day just as Hopper's had his first nightmare about it in a long time, Bukowski has been deemed cured and given leave, he decides to call Hopper and invites him out for a drink. Hopper turns down this request leaving Bukowski to go and catch a film at the cinema, during the film his hunger for flesh returns and he bites a young woman in the throat. Bukowski is run out of the cinema and chased by a biker gang, eventually barricading himself in a mall. When Hopper hears about what's happened he immediately figures out that it must be Bukowski and goes down there to talk him out, something he does successfully. On the way out of the mall, Bukowski manages to bite a cop before being bundled into an ambulance and returned to the military hospital. Back at home, Hopper tells his wife that he himself has been getting an urge to bite people. After a little convincing, he goes to the same hospital Bukowski and Thompson are at so the doctors can run some tests. While at the hospital, the virus has spread and Bukowski and Thompson are freed by an infected female doctor. Hopper can no longer resist his desire for flesh, and along with Bukowski, Thompson and the doctor, they escape the hospital with the police and army in hot pursuit.Read more ›

Three Vietnam vets contract a disease which turns them into flesh hungry cannibals. Norman Hunter tries to quell his affliction but as has happened with the other 2 their human flesh desires explode and start contaminating others with the "contagious cannibalism".

Gruesome, graphic and bloody (no wonder this made it onto the video nasties list) but also a huge amount of fun. Antonio Margheriti does a great job handling both the violence and action set pieces his pacing is great their really is never a dull period in the film. The special effects are excellent- John Morghen's famous hole in the stomach scene is great as is most of the gruesome flesh eating stuff. The performances are good they don't rise to any great heights but they don't need to although John Saxon's character does have a little depth to it. The way that everyone is vulnerable and could be infected keeps you guessing who's next.

Overall a fun, silly not to be taken seriously horror/action picture that doesn't deserve the negative attention it has received over the years.

If you are a fan of early eighties Italian exploitation (Fulci etc..) then you are bound to like this nasty little offering from Antonio Margheriti (Anthony M Dawson). John Saxon puts in a solid performance as a Vietnam Vet trying to come to terms with life after the traumas of war. At the start of this film you think that there is a more serious film desperately trying to rear its head before the onset of the action - but...no.....never mind, the film soon settles into a series of fairly obvious scenes of chomping and any pretentions of character development are soon lost. In fact the gore is not extreme and very mild by modern standards. So - Saxon is good, there is quite a nasty leg/power tool scene and the film quality of the Optimum release is excellent. On the minus side - the music is cheese ( like a third rate Goblin), the acting is fairly wooden and there is little suspense. Some people (like myself) will find all of these factors (positive and negative) appealing, because that is what makes films like this so entertaining!

This film is a masterpiece, first I'll start with the story. John Saxon rescues then get bitten by some Vietnam P.O.W.'s and becomes a cannibal himself, then the story forwards a couple of years to Atlanta where he is a normal family man until he recieves a call from one of his cannibal buddies and his own suppressed cannibal urges start to come back. Later John Saxon and cannibal comrades form a cannibal gang and wreak havoc in the city spreading the cannibal disease!
Thoroughly entertaining, this film is so silly its good. Part of the infamous video nasties contingent, it was previously banned and is still unavaliable on region 2 today, although if it was submitted to the BBFC today it would have problem getting through uncut as the gore is highly unrealistic and the film is more or less a comedy(although unintentional!)
The DVD I'm reviewing here is fully uncut and the picture quality is excellent and comes with tons of extras including an hour long documentry so your getting your moneys worth.
This is an excellent horror (comedy!) film and according to the director on the documentry it is one of Quentin Tarrentino favourite films. Can't get a better recommendation than that!
