This month we'll be releasing original score on vinyl for Cannibal Holocaust, the holy grail of gore films, and to celebrate we've cooked up a cannibal feast event for Valentine's Day with the Alamo Drafthouse. The score by Riz Ortolani will be available for the first time on vinyl and comes with incredible original art by Jock and a "Green Inferno" disc.

"To kickoff the launch of the Cannibal Holocaust vinyl we reached deep into the reservoir of the most insane screening ideas we've ever had and came up with a Valentine's Day feast to celebrate a horror movie that gives horror fans pause. This is truly an anti-Valentine's Day event and one we'd recommend if you're looking for an easy way to break up with a significant other but can't muster the courage to do it via text," said Mondo CEO Justin Ishmael.

Considered one of the most notorious films ever released and banned in over 50 countries for many years, Ruggero Deodato’s most brutal film (and surely one of the first ‘found footage’ films) still retains the power to shock to this day, it charts a team of documentary filmmakers as they go deep into the jungle to find and film the indigenous tribes of the area.
Attendees will be treated to a delicious 4-course cannibal feast during the film:
"One thing that always stuck out like a sore thumb when viewing Cannibal Holocaust was Riz Ortolani’s score, which is beautifully composed, and recorded, offering a mix of traditional orchestration and early synth work. As a stand alone piece of music it’s staggering and I honestly think that if Cannibal Holocaust had a more traditional horror score it would be even more uncomfortable to sit through. As it stands, Maestro Ortolani’s score offers some respite from the violence onscreen and the juxtaposition between the sights onscreen and musical soundtrack have in my opinion never been bettered," said Spencer Hickman, Mondo and Death Waltz Recording Company Label Manager.
