Grindhouse Releasing unleashes a high definition CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST (review)

The Italian cannibal film that "goes all the way" makes its stateside Blu-ray debut in a stunning HD transfer: Ruggero Deodato's CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST.  Four ruthless American documentary filmmakers trek into the Amazon jungle in search of the cannibalistic "Tree People" and are never seen again.  Two years later, the film cans from their shoot turn up and an NYU anthropologist takes them back to New York to discover the fates of the missing filmmakers.  What he finds is more horrible than you can imagine.  "Don't look away.  These are men.  Men like you!"
