    I haven't actually seen this film but I have seen Anthropophagus. As far as I know Absurd hasn't had a legit release which is why I've made a petition to hopefully get it one.

    Here's the link to the petition: http://www.petitiononline.com/he774a77/petition.html

    Thanks to those who sign:)

    Yeah, mentioned this earlier in the MYA thread.
    I even signed the petition. Never seen the film.

    They used the French title which could indicate they only had access to a French copy. Was the French version cut?

    Once Again. The Movie "Rosso Sangue" aka "Absurd" etc. has nothing to do with "Antropophagus".
    In the beginning Joe D' Amato planned a sequel to "Antropophagus" and hand a treatment of the script to his friend and Partner Luigi Montefiori (George Eastman).
    But due this time Montefiori was busy with another film and on the other hand, he was not interessted in it because he didn`t like the original "Antropophagus" Film. So Massaccesi gave the treatment to another writer, but he failed. So the screenplay went back to Montefiori and he completley rewrote it for free, with the option that he want to play the lead character.
    Through all over the world the movie "Rosso Sangue" was advertised as "Antropophagus 2" but only because the original one was, instead of italy, an international success. As many of you know, D' Amato was only interessted in making money. He had never any artistic ambitions in his whole career.
    For the Fans:
    "Rosso Sangue" was filmed in two weeks in May 1981 in the city of Fiano Romano 44 kilometres in the north of Rome.

    greetings from germany and sorry for my bad english

    I made that petition and I haven't seen the film.:eek: So this is pretty cool to hear it's coming out.

    So they can't use the title Absurd because it's own by MGM, is that right?
    Well he was calling it a prequel in the documentary that was on the Anthropophagus disc from Shriek Show. :confused:

    Happy to see this one hit DVD. Not a huge fan of "Anthro" but I liked this one, even though it is a rip-off of Halloween II plot-wise.

    I know. Its only relation to Anthro is that he said it was a prequel. As a film it has no connection.

    There's an Anthropophagus remake BTW. It's German and from what I've seen it looks pretty cheep. I wouldn't mind seeing a new remake to the film.

    I think I found a clip for it once with all the death scenes. It was so over-the-top and badly acted I was laughing the whole way through. I think that clip showed all the movie had to offer too.

    So what about the idea for a 'decent' remake?

    I'd personally write them a letter to do so.:D

    I actually think it could be an interesting concept which could turn out quite shocking if done correctly.

    But who is gonna play the beast??
    I think Montefioris performance is unbeatable.
    But i would like to see him in a cameo.
    So unfortunatley he would never do this !!! (except you pay him a lot of money) :D :D
