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!
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
