Original title: CANNIBALI: LEGGENDA O REALTÁ
I've been wanting the "lost" Bruno Mattei cannibal movie CANNIBALS: LEGEND OR REAITY (Cannibali: Leggenda o Realtà) for many months now. It's among the last "new" films he made towards the end of his life (unter the alias "David Hunt"). It's really a 4 episode made-for-tv thingy but only released as an edited film version on DVD. And only in ONE country: the good ol'e Czech Republic! It's a pest ordering DVDs from there. But last night... finally... my buddy Member-X from Cinehound found a store for me that has the DVD and accepts non-Czech customers. And they even take PayPal! So this afternoon I place the order. And then I surf on some German site and discover that...
EDIT: and in the text that followed I wrote about how I thought there was going to be a reg. 1 dvd release but unfortunately I confused it with the release of another, entirely different movie. I've decided to delete the text in order not to confuse fans even more.
Oh, and I just discovered there's a new Claudio Fragasso film as well (from 2010)!!
EDIT, December 2011: There's was some confusion around the time when a reg. 1 DVD that was called THE REAL CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST was going to get released and unfortunately I thought it was an aka title for the Mattei film. It is not. It's a completely different mondo movie called GUINEA AMA (by Akira Ide). As a wild coincidence Bruno Mattei actually used some of the mondo footage from GUINEA AMA in his HELL OF THE LIVING DEAD! How's that for weirdness!!
seGood that you didn't share the shop. God knows what I'd do with more Bruno Mattei flicks on my hands... :)ReplyDelete
But since there's an easily obtainable new reg. 1 disc out doesn't that mean you're doomed (doomed enough to have to buy it anyway)?? ;o)ReplyDelete
