Kino Lorber is releasing Director Antonio Margheriti’s cannibal classic, Cannibal Apocalypse (1980) on a 4K remastered Blu-ray. Stars John Saxon.

It starts off in Vietnam where Norman Hopper gets bitten by P.O.W. Charlie Bukowski who has been infected with some sort of cannibal virus. A few decades later in Atlanta, Georgia, Hopper wakes up from a nightmare flashback of what actually happened back in ‘Nam. Hopper then receives a call from Bukowski asking him if he wants to go out for a drink but Hopper refuses to remember the incident in ‘Nam.

Bukowski has turned into a cannibal and is soon on the run after biting into a woman’s neck. He barricades himself in a department store and shoots some folks with a shotgun. The cannibal virus spreads and soon Hopper joins veterans Bukowski and Tom Thompson along with some others to wreak some havoc.
