Ask any 1980's horror film enthusiast to name two popular genres of the period and the answer you would get will more than likely include Zombie and Cannibal movies. With the two genres increasing in popularity at around the same time and with each entry in the series attempting to be more outrageous than the last, it was only a matter of time before someone had the idea of taking both genres and mixing them into one movie which ultimately became the plot for Zombie Holocaust.
Taking the leading actor from arguably the best Italian zombie movie ever made, adding in a cannibal infested tropical island and a mad scientist who is busy creating his own version of the living dead and you have the sort of mixture which on paper must have looked truly bizarre. Thankfully however, the end result, if not taken too seriously, is a fun filled horror classic which presents equal moments of extreme gore and sheer disbelief along the way.
The premise of Zombie Holocaust actually contains classic scenarios such as native cannibals catching their victims with what appears to be lassos made from bungee cord, a doctor who has an unhealthy fascination with brain transplant surgery and a zombie who has a very close encounter with an outboard motor. This is not to say that the film is bad, in fact it's great fun and the viewer can easily choose to laugh along with the story rather than at it, that is of course, assuming your sense of humour hasn't been dragged away kicking and screaming like some of the unfortunate victims in the film.
Media Blasters have made a point of releasing low budget Italian horrors on DVD for many years now and as of late they have started creeping into the Blu-ray market.Read more ›
Picture quality: 3.5/5
This actually looks better than my old Shriek Show DVD. Improved colours, blood, gore, details and such. This has some trouble with DNR and noise. The DNR makes it look smooth and too clean. Also some scenes was too dark.
Audio quality: 3.5/5
Yes, some of the music and gunshots effects have bass. Not much else to say, but the English: DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 dual Mono is improved compared to the DVD.
first of all, if you are looking at this movie on amazon, you have probably seen Italian cheese before.
If not, welcome to a really good one.
Starring 2 actors from Fulci's Zombie, this movie's title is a bit misleading.
The zombies are few, but the cannibals are savage.
The gore here is over the top, some of it looks really fake like the EYE GOUGE.
Some of it looks really good tho like the native getting caught in a trap and his throat slit.
This movie is absolute cheese, and even uses scenes from Fulci's classic.
In fact, this film was not even shot on an island, but in the woods outside of Rome I think.
An interview with an effects guy goes wrong because he totally dissess this flick LOL.
As bad as this movie is, it is like a guilty pleasure like Burial Ground or Nightmare City.
I wont explain the plot, you will have to see for yourself!

Shrek-Show is a so/so company but, they did a pretty good job on this Blu Ray
you'll never see it look this crisp and clean unless you go out of your way and buy the super expensive Import which is also Region (B)
Unless you have a region-free Blu Ray player this is the best way to go
I wouldn't go out of your way to get a region free player for this particular film (It's by no means great) Unless your a Hardcore Cannibal fan!
The Strongest thing about this film besides the over the top practical gore F/X
is the Cast
Alexandra Delli Colli (who also worked on the New York Ripper) she is just old Hollywood beautiful watching this film in a HD resolution you'll notice that.... We don't get actress like this anymore timeless beauty! She also gets to actually acts this time around not just be a housewife nympho!
Sherry Buchanan who didn't go on to do much which i don't understand she to had this very unique look very pretty girl she stands out in every scenes she's in!Read more ›
