Infamous 80s exploitation movie Cannibal Holocaust is getting a video game sequel

Well, here’s something unexpected; infamous 80s exploitation movie Cannibal Holocaust will be getting a video game sequel, courtesy of its original director Ruggero Deodato.

Cannibal Holocaust, which originally released in 1980, was a front-runner in the now-ubiquitous found footage horror sub-genre, following a group’s attempt to rescue a documentary crew on the hunt for cannibal tribes in the Amazon rainforest.

It immediately gained notoriety on release for its graphic violence (Italian authorities mistook it for a real-life snuff movie), depictions of sexual assault, and actual animal cruelty, and was one of numerous movies embroiled in the UK’s “video nasties” frenzy of the early 80s – ultimately leading to its banning by the British Board of Film Classification until a slightly truncated version was eventually passed for release some 25 years later in 2005.
