Cannibal Holocaust XT Video tin

 It's been almost two years since my last post.  I can't remember why I didn't follow through with more posts and reviews, but I've decided to change that with this year.


Cannibal Holocast
Production year: 1980

DVD release date: 06/25/2007
Collection number: #883



With this post we will be taking a look at the XT Video release of Cannibal Holocaust.  This tin is the 4th release in their Shocking Classics line.

When you pop in the dvd you're greeted with a nice XT intro video.  With the exception of that intro and the dvd menus everything else on the dvd's seem to be cultivated directly from Grindhouse Releasing's 2005 release.  Was this done in correlation with Grindhouse Releasing?  That I do not know.



Along with two loaded dvd's you get the OST, a booklet for the CD, and three nice glossy art cards.

Which is the better of the two releases?  That's a good question, we'll take a look at the Grindhouse version in a future update.  I'm personally digging this release a bit more.  The tin is big and the artwork is a very nice touch, XT went in a different direction veering away from the iconic "impaled woman" which is a welcome change.



As for the film itself, there's not a lot I can say about Cannibal Holocaust that hasn't already been said.  It was my first real foray into the Italian Cannibal sub genre.  I think a lot of people have forgotten how tough it was to get some of these films, even something so accessible as The Evil Dead was a pain to nab.  DVD really opened up the flood gates...Companies like Elite and Anchor Bay were constantly putting out great remastered editions of movies that had become impossible to see.  Many regard the 80's as the "Golden Age of Horror."  I don't deny this, however, there is a something that should be said about the 00's, it made all of those old films obtainable once more.  I can remember the day I finally tracked down a copy of Cannibal Holocaust.  It was the last over-priced copy at a now defunct Borders store.  That disc didn't leave my player for a few days, and even re watching it now it is still a grotesquely powerful film.

Whether you go with Grindhouse Releasing, XT Video, or one of the other numerous releases out there, definitely check out Cannibal Holocaust.  You will not be disappointed.

  1. Poisoned bait is a common method for controlling rat populations, however is not as effective when there are other food sources around, such as garbage. Poisoned meats have been used for centuries for killing off wolves, birds that were seen to threaten crops, and against other creatures. This can be a problem, since a carcass which has been poisoned will kill not only the targeted animal,

  3. but also every other animal which feeds on the carcass. Humans have also been killed by coming in contact with poisoned meat, or by eating an animal which had fed on a poisoned carcass. This tool is also used to manage several caterpillars e.g. Spodoptera litura, fruit flies, snails and slugs, crabs etc.
