Grindhouse Releasing Announces “Cannibal Holocaust” Merch Featuring Long-Lost Poster Art

Wednesday, October 28, 2020 | Exclusive

Grindhouse Releasing has unearthed never-before-seen movie poster art for Ruggero Deodato’s CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST in the vaults of the film’s original U.S. distributor.

Larry Joachim of Trans-Continental Film Corp. commissioned this painting from artist Marcus Boas in 1979, intending to use the art on the U.S. one-sheet poster for the New York opening of CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST — but the design was deemed too graphic and shocking by theater owners. It wasn’t until later that Deodato’s film debuted in U.S. theaters, with a different poster design. Grindhouse Releasing saw this incredible painting and is featuring it on a new line of official CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST merch including T-shirts, hoodies, banners, and more!

Grindhouse Releasing also has on offer new official CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST merch featuring wild art from Ghana by Bright Obeng, and new CANNIBAL FEROX art by Meagan LeMay.

The collection will be available starting the week of November 1st, 2020 on the Grindhouse Releasing website at
