Once banned in the UK under the Video Nasties act, Jess Franco's notorious 1980 cannibal flick Devil Hunter now gets the hi-def treatment with a blu-ray from 88 Films.

The film stars Al Cliver as a Vietnam vet (what else?) who heads to the jungle to rescue a kidnapped model (Ursula Fellner). Franco's trademark blend of crash zooms, nudity, gore and baffling dialogue ensues.

Bonus features include:

  • Franco-Philes: Musings on Madrid's B-Movie Maverick. A feature length documentary examining the career of maverick B-movie maestro Jess Franco, with contributions from: film journalist John Martin; author and critic Rachael Nisbet; author and publisher Andy Black; Sitges Film Festival organiser Mike Hostench; Fangoria editor and writer Tony Timpone; assistant editor of Starburst Magazine Martin Unsworth; Brunel University scholar Julian Petley; actress Dyanne Thorne; actor Howard Maurer and actor Antonio Mayans.
  • HD transfer in original 1.66:1 aspect ratio
  • Extensive re-grading carried out in the UK
  • Uncompressed LPCM English audio
  • Optional English SDH subtitles
  • Region free Blu-ray


88 Films presents Devil Hunter on UK Blu-ray April 8th. Pre-order here.



The official synopsis reads:

Sun, sex, sand and… sadism! When a gorgeous model is kidnapped by an isolated tribe and imprisoned on a remote island, a grizzled Vietnam veteran travels to the uncharted tropics to save her. He soon discovers human flesh is on the menu for the ravenous kidnappers and the sacred Devil God they worship…

Featuring a leading turn from Italian horror legend Al Cliver (Zombie Flesh Eaters, The Beyond), Devil Hunter is part Indiana Jones, part Cannibal Holocaust and all outrageous insanity as Jess Franco throws-in babes, bare-boobs, blood and native-battles in a glorious onslaught of cannibalistic carnage.
