Horrifying, shocking and gruesome are just a few words that come to mind when describing the visual imagery of "Cannibal Holocaust". It's been almost a year since I stomached my way through it at a horror movie marathon. Not for the faint of heart, it left me with one too many disturbing visuals that kept playing over in my head. This is strictly for hardcore film buffs with an appreciation for the Italian horror exploitation film genre.

On a positive note-- the original soundtrack for the film has been re-mastered and re-released. Although the eye candy of this movie was pretty bitter, the ear candy made up for it. I was compelled to order the soundtrack and found with much disappointment that it was super rare and difficult to find until now!

Riz Ortolani orchestrates quite a range of musical styles throughout the soundtrack--running the gamut from nostalgic, summery string melodies to funky-sleazy Italo-porno-cocktail to burning, simmery spooky synth-inflected creepiness. The music impacts the audience just as much as the blunt visual elements of the movie. In fact, the music became a running joke with the audience at the horror movie marathon. There's a particular synth sound in some of the spooky songs that sounds like an electric tom tom (buh-boo) noise that was replicated one too many times by a few smart aleks.

"Cannibal Holocaust, the main theme" begins the movie with a slow swaying pace, much like how "Science Fiction/ Double Feature" intros for Rocky Horror, then slowly builds up to a crescendo of strings and warbly moogy-chorus. The acoustic guitar picking and slow '70s bop beat sound as if they might have inspired Air to go on to make "How Does it Make you Feel?" for "10,000 Hz Legend".

This soundtrack is the score of a very shocking and unforgetable film. The film depicts cannibalism and violence, And that's exactly what this score captures. If you have been a fan of the film or are just starting to explore the genre I would recommend that you buy this. The soundtrack will provide you with some relaxation and strike fear into your heart at the same time. Much Respect to Riz Ortalani.

Simply put, this is one of the most amazing scores to come out of the 70s film industry. The best track is definitely the Main Theme. It starts out a little rough sounding but once the strings take over, its, by far, the most beautiful theme to come out of a much hated film. Don't be surprised if you still hear it in your head days later. The only set back are a few disco sounding cues that really date the music but other than that this album is great and the price is low for such a rare recording. Beware that a couple of years ago a German based company released a version of the soundtrack in a "limited edition" run. These copies are now asking for steep prices. The Grindhouse Releasing label is the only one to offer the "complete" score to a wider audience. Get it now before these too disappear into obscurity.
