At the dawn of human civilization, hundreds of thousands of years ago, war was a way of life, with rivaling tribes and vicious nomads transforming the earth into a non-stop bloodbath. Bog, a young man who dreams of being the leader of not just his tribe, but all of human civilization, begins a bloodthirsty quest for domination, wherein he’ll need to fight and conquer both man and beast to truly ascend to the power he so desperately craves.
An ultra gory Italian cash-in on the then popular Hollywood trope of ancient-times action/adventure films, notorious genre film auteur Alberto Cavallone’s (A Man, A Woman, and a Beast) MASTER OF THE WORLD (aka Conqueror of the World) is a low rent/high sleaze saga of prehistoric man at his most brutal, complete with an array of shocking and dangerous animal stunts to balance out the human-on-human savagery. Never officially released on DVD, Vinegar Syndrome brings this gruesome epic to Blu-ray, freshly restored in 4K from its 35mm original negative!
