Trivia

Although the UK cinema version was heavily cut, the pre-certification video release on the Derann label featured the uncut print and was regularly seized by police during the video nasty scare. However, it was never listed as an official nasty, and the only prosecution resulted in a verdict of not guilty. See more »

Jungle Holocaust is a great cannibal film
20 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jungle Holocaust is a great cannibal film. But not only is it a cannibal film, it is also a jungle adventure, one mans story of survival. This is Ruggero Deodato's first cannibal film, therefore paving the way for the classic Cannibal Holocaust. Like CH, this film is also shunned by many for it's real animal killing and it's realistic human killings. But, it is not only the gore that make this a good film. It also has great direction and stunning visuals in the jungle, plus a good score and pretty good acting. It is a very realistic movie, filmed on location with real natives. Don't get me wrong, the gore is great, too, so if your looking for a movie with realistic gore, i highly recommend this, along with Deodato's next film, Cannibal Holocaust. Check it out if you like Italian cannibal films or if your a Deodato fan. Not for the squeamish. I give it a 8/10.
