or "Jungle Holocaust" or "Last Cannibal World" or "The Last Cannibal World" or "Mundo Canibal")

 

Directed by Ruggero Deodato
Italy 1977

 

A small plane carrying Robert Harper (Massimo Foschi, The Chosen, Nine Guests for a Crime) and his friend Rolf (Ivan Rassimov, Spasmo, The Raiders of Atlantis) crash lands in an isolated development in New Guinea. After the pilot and his female companion are killed by a tribe of cannibals, the two friends on the run are separated and Robert is captured by a rival tribe, who may not be cannibals, but are cruel and primitive beyond belief. Tortured and humiliated, Robert is taken to the edge of his sanity by a series of acts so horrible that they are practically beyond human comprehension. Only the fact that one of the tribe women (Me Me Lai, Eaten Alive!, Au Pair Girls) sympathizes with him, gives Robert the strength to plan a desperate escape, but standing in his way back to civilization are the cannibal tribe responsible for the death of his crew members. This cannibal classic directed by Ruggero Deodato (Cannibal Holocaust, Waves of Lust, House on the Edge of the Park, Live Like a Cop, Die Like a Man) played all over America as The Last Survivor in an edited form, now watch this classic uncut from a Brand New HD master.

***

An oil prospector escapes from capture by a primitive cannibal tribe in the Philippine rain forest and heads out to locate his missing companion and their plane to return home.

Comments:

NOTE: The below Blu-ray captures were taken directly from the Blu-ray disc.

ADDITION: Code Red Blu-ray (July 2020): Code Red have transferred Ruggero Deodato's Jungle Holocaust (aka "Ultimo mondo cannibale" or "The Cannibals" or "Cannibal" or "Carnivorous" or "The Last Survivor" or "Last Cannibal World" or "The Last Cannibal World" or "Mundo Canibal") to Blu-ray. It is cited as being from a "Brand New HD master" and contains both the Uncut International Version and Alternate U.S. Cut. They both look exactly the same (they are NOT seamlessly-branched) with the major difference being the 3:12 longer running time for the international cut (which I suspect revolves around the obscene gutting of a live alligator.) I thought it looked surprisingly good with some modest waxiness while close-ups can show impressive detail. Colors appear faithful and have a richness and depth - notably red blood and green foliage. I didn't note any significant damage and it seemed fairly clean. While not an award winning 1080P image - it serviced the film reasonably well. 

NOTE: We have added 31 more large resolution Blu-ray captures (in lossless PNG format) for DVDBeaver Patrons HERE

On their Blu-ray, Code Red use a DTS-HD Master 2,.0 channel track (24-bit) in the (DUB'ed) English language. Effects are occasionally bombastic but flat and a bit tinny with a score by Ubaldo Continiello (Macabre, Play Motel, Live Like a Cop, Die Like a Man) sounding supportive and aggressive. Code Red offer no subtitles on their Region FREE Blu-ray.

Aside from both cuts the Code Red Blu-ray offers 2 interviews totaling almost 1/2 hour with Messrs. Massimo Foschi and Ivan Rassimov - looking good and reflecting on the production and careers. There are also theatrical trailers under the title "Last Cannibal World". Code Red have an altered Blu-ray version here different from the initial release, losing the commentary.

Ruggero Deodato's Jungle Holocaust is better than I expected from one of my least favorite subgenres of exploitation films - part of the Italian 'cannibal boom' of the 70s and 80s. It's less about cannibalism and more an adventure with 24-year old exotic hottie Me Me Lai putting the rest of the native women to shame. I get turned off by the excesses so I appreciated the US cut as an alternative viewing option on the Code Red Blu-ray. Personally, I preferred Eli Roth's 2013 The Green Inferno more than Antonio Climati's 1988 original. So, to each his own. If you can stomach Deodato's Jungle Holocaust it's here in both cuts.
