Franco E. Prosperi's 'Wild Beasts' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Tue Jan 17, 2017 at 08:00 AM PST by

The 1984 horror film will be available on high-definition in February.

In an early announcement to retailers, Severin is preparing 'Wild Beasts' for Blu-ray on February 7.

For his final work, Godfather Of Mondo Franco E. Prosperi took on the Nature Strikes Back genre and delivered perhaps the most shocking movie of his controversial career: When PCP gets into the water supply of a city zoo, the drug-crazed beasts including tigers, lions, cheetahs, hyenas and elephants, as well as seeing eye dogs and sewer rats go berserk and rampage through the streets of Rome. What follows is a terrifying mix of actual animal attacks (supervised by professional circus trainers) and over-the-top 80s Italian gore that remains the greatest eco-revenge shocker in EuroCult history. Lorraine De Selle (CANNIBAL FEROX, HOUSE AT THE EDGE OF THE PARK) and Ugo Bologna (NIGHTMARE CITY) star in this disturbing urban bloodbath, now digitally remastered for the first time ever and bursting with all-new Special Features!

Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements include: Altered Beasts: Interview With Director Franco E. Prosperi; Wild Tony: Interview With Actor Tony Di Leo; Cut After Cut: Interview With Editor & Mondo Filmmaker Mario Morra; The Circus is in Town: Interview With Animal Wrangler Roberto Tibeti's son, Carlo Tiberti; House Of Wild Beasts: A Visit To The Home Of Franco E. Prosperi; and International Trailer.

You can find the latest specs for 'Wild Beasts' linked from our Blu-ray Release Schedule, where it is indexed under February 7.
