Cannibal Holocaust and The Savage Cinema of Ruggero Deodato

Type: Books



Cannibal Holocaust is the seminal 'found footage' film, acclaimed as being one of the truly great horror movies; indeed this hugely influential film is so devastatingly effective that it has often wrongly been accused of being a 'snuff movie'.


This book is the fully authorised guide to the amazing films of Ruggero Deodato, whose notorious masterpiece CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST is analysed in depth along with all his other movies, which include HOUSE ON THE EDGE OF THE PARK, WAVES OF LUST, CUT AND RUN, LAST CANNIBAL WORLD, BODYCOUNT, PHANTOM OF DEATH, THE BARBARIANS, DIAL: HELP, THE ATLANTIS INTERCEPTORS and LIVE LIKE A COP, DIE LIKE A MAN.


With two career-spanning interviews, a detailed filmography, reviews of every Ruggero Deodato movie and a stunning selection of posters, film stills and rare behind the scenes photos selected from the director's personal collection, this book is the definitive reference work on one of Italy's most accomplished horror film directors.


Fully revised and updated, with a further 16 pages of new text and illustrations added to the previous re-issue from 2011, and bound as a luxury hardcover.
