First there was FACES OF
DEATH, now BRUTES AND SAVAGES!
Fascinated by forbidden
rituals and ceremonies, world explorer Arthur Davis takes a crew with hidden
cameras to Africa and South America to secretly record the beauty and horror of
the law of the jungle. BRUTES AND SAVAGES is the filmed document of his
death-defying adventures. Shocking, brutal and repulsive, this film mixes
bizarre authentic footage with incredibly exploitive (and often hilarious)
re-enactments of his findings. Animal sacrifices, bizarre tribal
ceremonies, mating rituals and even brain surgery its all here!
When first released in US
theaters in 1978, BRUTES AND SAVAGES was cut down to avoid problems with the
censors. This digitally re-mastered DVD release contains almost 15 minutes of
additional shocking footage not shown in theaters and has an amazing music score
composed and conducted by Euro-Horror music maestro, Riz Ortolani (CANNIBAL
HOLOCAUST, HOUSE ON THE EDGE OF THE PARK).
A graphic and disturbing
film exploring the unknown world of primitive cultures, BRUTES AND SAVAGES is
DEFINITELY not for the weak or faint of heart.
