Long-lost CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST poster art and new merchandise revealed!

Grindhouse Releasing has unearthed never-before-seen movie poster art for Ruggero Deodato’s CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST in the vaults of the film’s original U.S. distributor.

Larry Joachim of Trans-Continental Film Corp. commissioned this painting from artist Marcus Boas in 1979, intending to use the art on the U.S. one-sheet poster for the New York opening of CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST — but the design was deemed too graphic and shocking by theater owners. It wasn’t until later that Deodato’s film debuted in U.S. theaters, with a different poster design.

We saw this painting and thought it was incredible, so we’re featuring it on a new line of official CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST merch including T-shirts, hoodies, banners and more!

We also have on offer new official CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST merch featuring wild art from Ghana by Bright Obeng, and new CANNIBAL FEROX art by Meagan LeMay.

“Grim, disturbing and sometimes funny…                                                                                       the film has the shape of an open-ended hallucination.”
