Alternate Versions

Before its inclusion on the video nasty list the film received a brief theatrical release in the UK in 1983. Unlike its pre-certificated video counterpart however the cinema version was cut by 2 mins 32 secs by the BBFC with heavy edits to the murder of the nurse with a drill, a man's forehead being sliced with a band saw, and a woman's face being burnt off in an oven.

Very brutal horror film.
13 January 2004 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

A priest is pursuing a madman who,the victim of a genetic experiment,has become a homicidal killer with blood that coagulates very quickly,making him virtually indestructible.The killer goes on the rampage in a small town.This ultra-gory sequel to Joe D'Amato's "Antropophagus" is very slow and boring at times but has also some creepy moments plus plenty of very strong violence and gore.The bandsaw killing is ten times nastier than the similar drill scene in Lucio Fulci's "City of the Living Dead".The gore flows freely resulting in a film that is simultaneously repellent and extremely funny.Highly recommended.
