Jeff Burr is the king of terrible remakes, okay that’s unfair but he’s never really had a commercially successful one, but it doesn’t mean that they aren’t adored by fans of bad horror, I find his films quite watchable but agree that they can be under par, but fun none the less.

But the first return to man eaters hit many sensitive spots and turned the film into a cult classic.
Filmed on location in the Amazon Rainforest on a budget of $100,000 but earning $2 Million at the box office it stars Robert Kerman who’s better known for his pornographic work, the most famous being Debbie Does Dallas. Continue reading Cannibal Holocaust (1980)
