‘Eaten alive! The ultimate terror movie…’
Cannibal Holocaust is a 1980 Italian feature film directed by Ruggero Deodato (The Washing Machine; Dial: Help: House on the Edge of the Park) from a story and screenplay by Gianfranco Clerici (The New York Ripper; The Antichrist).
The movie was filmed in the Amazonian rainforest with real indigenous tribes interacting with American and Italian actors and follows on from the director and writer team’s Last Cannibal World (1976). It stars Robert Kerman, Francesca Ciardi, Perry Pirkanen, although no actors are acknowledged in the opening credits.
Led by New York-based anthropologist Harold Monroe (Kerman), a team is assembled to search for a missing film crew who had ventured deep into the Amazonian rainforest to film a documentary about tribes still practising cannibalism.
