As this opens, we meet a documentary filmmaking team (three men and a woman) as they are heading for the Amazon jungle to search for real cannibals. Then, the crew is reported missing and a rescue team, headed by anthropologist Professor Monroe (Kerman), is sent from the USA. This team encounters a tribe called the Tree-people who give them canister of film containing the material this shot during the first group's search. Back in the States, the "documentary" film gets developed, and everybody is in for a tremendous shock. CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST is a notorious motion picture, seldom seen but often discussed, which has been banned just about everywhere in the world. It was even banned in director Deodato's homeland, Italy. In fact, in an unprecedented move, Deodato had to endure an obscenity trial after being unable to convince Italian authorities that the footage was indeed staged. Deodato lost the original trial, and all prints were to be destroyed. However, he managed to overturned the ruling in the early '80s.This is the first official DVD release containing the complete, unedited film (the British release from last year is missing 15 minutes); plus it also features two interviews with Ruggero Deodato, conducted in English, and the original theatrical trailers.

Domestic Release of Italian film, shot in English; remastered anamorphic fullscreen (despite widescreen notices on the dvd jacket), uncut (96 min.) version in DVD encoded for ALL REGIONS, playable on any American DVD machine; in English language.
