Before Ruggero Deodato’s more well known “Cannibal Holocaust” he explored the horror genre with the similar piece Jungle Holocaust. This December, the film makes its way to DVD from Media Blasters.
Robert Harper was an average entrepreneur with a comfortable life, until his plane crashes near an isolated development in New Guinea. When a cruel twist of fate separates him from his companion Rolf, Robert finds himself stranded alone in the wilderness. He discovers a hidden native civilization in the jungle, but they are a cruel tribe of cannibals with only malicious intensions. Tortured and humiliated, Robert is taken to the edge of his sanity by a series of acts so horrible that they are practically beyond human comprehension. Only the fact that one of the cannibal women sympathizes with him gives Robert the strength to plan a desperate escape.
Given a new anamorphic widescreen transfer, the DVD will contain ten Lobby Card Reproductions included inside the packaging, Trailers, Interviews with stars Ivan Rassimov, and Massimo Foschi and a Still Gallery.
Coming in December, “Jungle Holocaust” will carry a suggested retail price of $24.95.
