The controversial cult classic will be released on Blu-ray in July. Pre-order here.
In an early announcement to retailers, Grindhouse Releasing will finally unleash 'Cannibal Holocaust' on Blu-ray on July 1.
Banned and heavily censored the world over, here is a film that surpasses its reputation as a shot-gun blast to the senses. Cannibal Holocaust presents the found footage of a group of four documentary filmmakers who experience brutal death at the hands of a savage South American tribe of flesh-eaters. This footage is so intense, so graphic and so unflinching in its realism that the director and producer of Cannibal Holocaust were arrested upon its original release and the film seized.
The 3 Disc Deluxe Edition (2 Blu-rays + CD) will feature a new hi-definition digital restoration of the original director's cut; spectacular digital stereo re-mix and original mono mix; and supplements will include: 2 feature-length commentary tracks - with director Ruggero Deodato and star Robert Kerman, and with stars Carl Yorke and Francesca Ciardi; New in-depth interviews with Ruggero Deodato, Francesca Ciardi, assistant director/co-star Salvo Basile (shot in Columbia!) and cameraman Roberto Forges Davazati; Classic interviews with Robert Kerman, Carl Yorke and Oscar-nominated composer Riz Ortolani; Extensive still galleries and theatrical trailers from around the world; BONUS CD- original soundtrack album by Riz Ortolani newly remastered in stunning 24bit/96khz sound from the original studio master tapes; Glossy 24-page booklet containing liner notes by director Eli Roth, legendary horror journalist Chas. Balun, Euro-music expert Gergely Hubai and Italian exploitation film authority Martin Biene; Shocking reversible cover with original art by notorious illustrator Rick Melton; Beautiful embossed slip cover; 9 Easter eggs! - including the Grindhouse Releasing theatrical re-release premiere and Necrophagia music video directed by Jim VanBebber; AND OTHER SURPRISES!
The suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.95.
