Documentary on AB DVD release


Well, its not exactly a documentary, but more of an interview. In the film, they interview the director, but at the same time, the people who put together this mini featurette dispute everything he says with shot by shot evidence. I thought it was rather funny to see this director caught in his lies.

thanks for that, I’d just put a message about this on another thread before seeing your comment. you've answered my question. they mention it in the DVD DELERIUM review but I wasn't sure if that's what he meant.
interesting. this whole animal thing fascinates me more than ever now, because I’ve always wondered what the directors and the star had to say on the issue and now with the DVD of this and other cannibal features we get to find out. but it seems they are not being honest.
I’m quite suspicious of Ruggerio Deodota motives as well. on the jungle holocaust extras he makes a real laboured point of saying he shot NONE of the atrocities and that they were all the idea of the producer who was "a maniac for this sort of thing."
he says he was against at the and really regrets it now.
fair enough but then why, oh why, did he do it on a much grander scale in cannibal holocaust years later!!
a lot of the animal deaths in that are committed by key characters so I find it difficult to believe that a second unit shot these. also they are much more integral to the plot (no that that makes it any better or worse)
I also read that he defends the killings on the commentary for that movie.
can anyone shed any light on this?

It's funny/pathetic how the directors attempt to eschew all the blame for the animal killings. They're always saying the producer or buyers insisted on it. How convenient! As an ultimate line of defense they will say that they ate the animals that were killed.
