PRIMITIVES - The worldwide HD premiere of Indonesia's cannibal classic!
Four years before they rocked Asia with SATAN'S SLAVE, director Sisworo Gautama Putra, screenwriter Imam Tantowi and producer Gope T. Samtani made their collaborative debut with Indonesia's first - and still only - Italian-style cannibal shocker. When three naÃ¯ve anthropology students go in search of a lost primitive tribe, they'll instead discover a nightmare of bloody rituals, depraved torture, jaw-dropping music cues and flesh-chomping brutality. Indonesian martial arts legend Barry Prima (THE WARRIOR) stars in this "peculiarly local, sometimes psychedelic and virtually unseen" (Mondo Digital) chunk of graphic jungle carnage - released in the UK as SAVAGE TERROR and classified as a Section 3 'Video Nasty' - now scanned in HD from the Jakarta vault negative for the first time ever.
Anamorphic Widescreen 2.35:1.
Dolby Digital Mono.

Insanely gory and utterly shamelessâ¦ Its gross-out moments and lapses in logic must be seen to be believed. --Critical Condition
A bizarre mix of ooga-booga & crueltyâ¦ A weird cannibal movie with truly fantastic and fun elements. It's not surprising it was seized by the UK police. --The Last Horror Podcast
