Don't believe the other reviews of this film..im a massive horror fan but this was just plain crap..cant believe quentin Tarantino rates this so highly,he's usually got very good taste..Almost zero gore,atrocious acting,intersting idea but just badly done..the only good thing is the funky 80's soundtrack,especially at the beginning!!. Save your money for someting like dawn of the dead,or zombie flesh eaters. if you want a good/bad (if you know what i mean!) cannibal fim ..check out cannibal holocaust or cannibal ferox..but dont get this.

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 ›

Didn't realise when I bought this that it was such an old film so entirely my fault that I don't like it. It's what you would expect of a film of that era - poor acting/special effects and not great quality - so not what I was after.

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!

During a rescue mission in Vietnam Colonel Norman Hopper is bitten by Sgt. Bukowski who was one of his captured soldiers when he discovers him eating a dead body. When he returns home he has a strange and uncontrollable urge to bite and people. Just as the urge is becoming to much he meets Bukowski again after he hears about him biting a women in a cinema and together along with two other infected people they go on run with the army hot on their trail.

Antonio Margheriti directs this fast paced and very gory action/horror thriller which is one of his more impressive films in a CV that's spans every single genre you can think of, from Sword and Sandal films to Spaghetti Westerns and Comedy movies to Sci-Fi.

John Saxon is great as Norman Hopper and id rate this as one of his finest performances. He is very believable as a the wary Vietnam vet who doesn't understand his urge to bite people and his strained relationship with his wife is acted well.

Margheriti's direction is fast paced and his stylish camera work adds real suspense in the dramatic scenes. His film is also a lot more memorable than the usual Cannibal/Zombie movies because here he opts to tell the story about the outbreak of an infect where most films tell of its aftermath.

The film is very violent from the start, featuring both dead and alive people been eaten which is shown in graphic detail (most notably in the scene where Bukowski uses a electronic metal cutter to cut pieces of a man's upper leg off before sharing it around).

Alexander Blonksteiner scores is both good and bad. The music played over the action scenes doesn't fit at all but the romantic guitar cues are great.

Overall a very watch-able and enjoyable movie, Italian film fans will notice that Bukowski watches Umberto Lenzi's Macaroni Combat movie From Hell to Victory in the cinema scene.

DVD Quality: Very good
