Considered one of the most notorious films ever released and banned in over 50 countries for many years, Ruggero Deodato’s most brutal film (and surely one of the first ‘found footage’ films) still retains the power to shock to this day, it charts a team of documentary filmmakers as they go deep into the jungle to find and film the indigenous tribes of the area.
“One thing that always stuck out like a sore thumb when viewing Cannibal Holocaust was Riz Ortolani’s score, which is beautifully composed, and recorded, offering a mix of traditional orchestration and early synth work. As a stand alone piece of music it’s staggering and I honestly think that if Cannibal Holocaust had a more traditional horror score it would be even more uncomfortable to sit through. As it stands, Maestro Ortolani’s score offers some respite from the violence onscreen and the juxtaposition between the sights onscreen and musical soundtrack have in my opinion never been bettered.” – Spencer Hickman, Mondo and Death Waltz Recording Company Label Manager.
Riz Ortolani’s incredible score for the brutal film Cannibal Holocaust, available for the first time ever on Vinyl. The score is distinct when paired with the film, as it is very untraditional for any horror film. Alone, it is powerful, haunting and beautiful. Featuring original artwork by Jock, and pressed on 180 Gram Black Vinyl.
