Promotional Material

Perhaps the most notorious ‘video nasty’ of all time, ANTHROPOPHAGUS is back to deprave and corrupt a fresh wave of horror film viewers!

Joe D’Amato cemented himself into genre film history with this slickly directed, and sinisterly suspenseful, creature feature which has some unprepared tourists arriving on a desolate Mediterranean island only to find themselves stalked by a silent cannibalistic Neanderthal! Featuring gory special effects, that convinced some British moral guardians that ANTHROPOPHAGUS was a legitimate ‘snuff movie’, there is little doubting that this timeless terror totem still holds up today. Also boasting a cast of genre legends, such as Tisa Farrow (ZOMBIE FLESH EATERS), Zora Kerova (CANNIBAL FEROX) and George Eastman (RABID DOGS), 88 Films is proud to present ANTHROPOPHAGUS, fully uncut and uncensored, and re-mastered for its worldwide HD debut!

Also includes the feature length documentary 42nd STREET MEMORIES: THE RISE AND FALL OF AMERICA’S MOST NOTORIOUS BLOCK!

    This is one of those films that will probably divide audiences. Those of the vhs generation, I guess, will be better placed to go with the languid pacing. Younger audiences, I suspect, will find it a little slow. The rubber head in a bucket is also likely to prompt laughter. Personally, I love this film. Not as downbeat as Buio omega, there is still a lot of brilliance her for those patient enough to get through the early travelogue footage and scenes of talking on a yacht.
