“In the jungle, or in the city, still they must EAT!” Antonio Margheriti’s gut-munching, video nasty classic that’s long out of print and in desperate need of the B-L-U treatment. Featuring an alternative use of an angle grinder and an incredibly explosive shotgun blast, the film’s formula is rather gruesome, fun, and creative, thanks to writer Dardano Sacchetti, blending horror and Macaroni combat genres. In Atlanta, Georgia, Vietnam veterans infected with a contagious virus that turns them into cannibals are running rampant! Despite Margheriti treading into gory territory along the lines of Fulci and Lenzi, Saxon’s acting here is top notch - stoic, serious, and a firm backbone to the film. That’s not to say though there isn’t plenty of gut-munching and superb action sequences to please your senses, because there is. Alessandro Blonksteiner, also known for his work on Fulci’s HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY (1981), composed one helluva score too with some of the sexiest saxophone solos to tickle and tease your eardrums. It’s smooth, seductive, and funky all wrapped in one. I dare you to try and not bob your head to the cuts “Impossible Love” and “Target-Firing”. Eat up, boys and girls! ◾️◾️◾️◾️◾️◾️◾️◾️◾️◾️◾️ #antoniomargheriti #cannibalapocalypse #videonasty #cannibalholocaust #cannibalferox #umbertolenzi #ruggerodeodato #luciofulci #italianhorror #johnsaxon #horrorobsessed #horroraddict #horrorjunkie #horrornerd #horrorgram #instahorror #horrorcommunity #cinephile #moviebuff #moviecollection #moviecollector #physicalmedia #darioargento #cultfilm #exploitationfilm #grindhouse

Not the least English friendly, but the German blu-ray of Antonio Margheriti’s Indiana Jones rip-off Hunters of the Golden Cobra looks great.

It’s #slasherdaysaturday so I’m going with the unusual proto-slasher SEVEN DEATHS IN THE CAT’S EYE (1973) from Antonio Margheriti. While not a standout film in and of itself, it does have an unusual place in the genre being a strange composite of giallo, gothic, and old dark house. The gore is toned down, red herrings abound, and the story, at times, can be slow, but Margheriti makes up for these deficiencies with a mysterious Bava-esque atmosphere and trappings. Dark tombs, foggy graveyards, and abandoned tunnels waiting to be explored; old houses with creaks and groans hiding secrets; strange characters with even stranger motivations - for seasoned horror fans and patient viewers, it’s standard, but enjoyable, fare. Riz Ortolani’s score is interesting and sometimes out of place - funky bass lines; sensuous string work; a lot of melodies. This movie is far from a favorite, but it’s definitely one I like to revisit. Margheriti has some FANTASTIC genre offerings that more people need to talk about 🔪 ◾️◾️◾️◾️◾️◾️◾️◾️◾️◾️◾️ #sevendeathsinthecatseye #antoniomargheriti #luciofulci #bloodandblacklace #darioargento #umbertolenzi #sergiomartino #mariobava #cannibalapocalypse #castleofblood #italianhorror #slashermovies #giallo #horrorobsessed #horrorfanatic #horrorjunkie #catoninetails #deepred #cultfilm #exploitationfilm #grindhouse #horrorgeek #cinephile #suspiria #horrorcommunity #horrorcollection #moviecollector #moviecollection #moviebuff
