This film was released on video at least as SAVAGE HUNGER with a cool but rather lurid box art that will let you think you're in for a sleazy film where in fact what you have is the real deal. Very memorable beautifully made realistically rough survival movie which strips away society to show the primal survival needs of the situation. Though it has nudity and violence all of these serve the story and add to the realism. This was the first film I saw with music by Christopher Young, billed here as Chris Young. He's certainly gone on to a strong career, sad that director Sparky Greene has not. He deserved and deserves to make another, if not many films given the power and beauty and proper ugliness of this one. This is a first rate movie on all levels, lacking only movie stars, but all the actors do well. Fans of true life survival tales will see this as a valid fictional version of what can and does happen in these situations. Memorable opening sequence and a great final shot as well. If you find a used VHS of this grab it. Would be nice for a DVD release but who knows if that will ever happen.
