"This Three-Pack is a good purchase. It includes "Jungle Holocaust", "Eaten Alive!" and "Massacre in Dinosaur Valley".
Jungle Holocaust- Is a real serious film that takes an unwavering look at a man's interactions as a prisoner with the cannibal tribe that imprisoned him, and follows him and a sympathetic cannibal woman (the lovely Me Me Lai) after he escapes and tries to find his way back to his plane. It does have some unsettling scenes like a real alligator getting stabbed brutally and cut open by one of the cannibals. The actors do a great job in the film. Heads up though there is quite a bit of nudity...both male and female. It is the first cannibal film that Ruggero Deodato made in his trilogy.
Eaten Alive!- Is a slightly less serious and a little more restrained cannibal movie. It's about a woman who is looking for her sister in the jungle and believes she may be a part of a strange relegious cult. The movie takes more of a "cult" turn and has more ritualistic type scenes then "Jungle Holocaust" It also uses footage previously shot during "Jungle Holocaust" even though the director, Umberto Lenzi claims in an interview it isn't the same scene. (it is) Like the movie mentioned above, this film contains a good bit of graphic violence and nudity.
Massacre in Dinosaur Valley- In a real campy way, I am most fond of this film, both for the movie itself and the enlightening interview of the star Michael Sopkiw on the DVD. It is about a group of people who are traveling to a place in the amazon where there are suppossed to be a lot of dinosaur footprints and bones, the hero (Michael Sopkiw) is somewhat of a paleontologist and wants to go. Their plane crashlands (is there any other way to go down in these films.) and the party runs into quicksand, snakes, cannibals, and slave traders. It has a fair amout of gore, and more nudity then the previous two films. It co-stars the lovely Suzane Carvalho (who is naked for a good 10 mintues straight) It's fun and bizarre entertainment.
* If you know these sort of movies interest you, this is a must own. For everyone else, I hope my review helped make your decision easier. *"
Jungle of Horrors Triple Feature

"Here are 3 more cult classics out of Italy. 80s Italian horror cinema seemed to be either zombies or cannibals. And most of the time these movies were a lot of fun.
Jungle Holocaust directed by Ruggero Deodato is a very serious movie. A lot of these flicks are silly fun, but this one is serious. First up I just wanna say the DVD is excellent and even comes with lobby cards. The movie itself is quite disturbing, but the problem is for me at least it just doesn't work that well. If something like this happened to you it would be scary and traumatic.
But in a movie you cannot just rely on that. Jungle Holocaust despite the slow pace is a good movie that is disturbing, but could have been a bit more. The gore scenes towards the end were quite brutal.
Eaten Alive by Umberto Lenzi is the more silly cannibal flick, even though I don't think that was the point. Jungle Holocaust worked for the most part even when nothing was happening. The same can't be said for Eaten Alive.
Overall though it's a fun movie though that fans like myself of Italian cinema should enjoy or at least some what enjoy. The gore scenes were shots from Jungle Holocaust.
And finally we have Massacre in Dinosaur Valley directed by Michele Massimo Tarantini. This movie alone is worth buying the set. The movie is so silly and sleazy how can one not love it?
Michael Sopkiw stars and this time instead of playing a Snake Plissken clone like he did in 2019: After the Fall of New York he's playing an Indiana Jones role.
I see this movie as Indiana Jones and the Cannibals. Michael Sopkiw rocks in this movie. As much as I liked him in 2019 I like him even more here.
We get cannibals eating people, 2 women getting it on and a lot of gore. Massacre in Dinosaur Valley is a great cult classic. The movie is so much fun and again Michael Sopkiw rocks!
Like all of the sets put out by Media-Blasters it's cheaper to buy the set than any of the movies on their own.
If you are a fan of 80s Italian cinema this set is a must own. All 3 movies are enjoyable with Massacre in Dinosaur Valley just being a fun ride from beginning to end.
Uncut & Unbridled Horror for Unbelievable Discount!

"The most attractive aspect of this collection is in the film versions themselves. I will skip the idea of reviewing each title (none are 5 stars individually in my opinion) in favor of the product as a whole and what it means to Gialli / Cannibal / Lenzi / Deodato / Horror enthusiasts.
For many years, these films were only available in heavily cut editions. Umberto Lenzi & Ruggero Deodato fans rejoiced when their respective films 'Mangiati Vivi' and 'Jungle Holocaust' ('Ultimo Mondo Cannibale') were released recently in all of their un-edited glory. Previously, versions of Jungle Holocaust were less than 83 minutes; here it is a full 96.
Rounding out the set is clearly the most blatantly sexual of the three, Massacre in Dinosaur Valley ('Nudo e selvaggio')
If you do not like these films to begin with, this information won't matter. If you know these films and/or enjoy them already, this 3-disc DVD product is a 5-star purchase. Buy it before it disappears. Three full-length features in a single set priced below $20. With the individual titles selling for $15-20 each, you would be foolish to miss out on this.
Note: Eaten Alive ('Mangiati Vivi') is not to be confused with the 1977 Tobe Hooper feature."

"It's gore overload!!!!! (As if that were possible). You won't find more pounds of torn flesh or extra ounces of bloodly spewage for the buck though. This triple feature rules!
Jungle Holocaust ('77)
Ruggero Deodato's first glorious tale of cannibalism. After a plane crash, Robert finds himself all alone in the jungle. He quickly gets captured by cannibals, and they find great delight in torturing and humiliating him. This also has brutal animal killings, a plethora of nudity, a real looking child birth, plus the hot Me Me Lai as the tribal chick. She don't eat meat she sure like the bone!
Eaten Alive ('80)
Umberto Lenzi offers another sleazy catastrophe. This starts a little slow, but when it gets going--whoa! A woman bravely surges into the jungle in search of her sister, who joined some extreme cult. The natives want to eat her, and not in a way she would enjoy. Besides the basics--animal killing, decapitations, severed limbs, nudity--this also has some nice gang bang action, plus a sex toy dipped in snake venom. It don't get much classier than that!
Massacre in Dinosaur Valley ('85)
This one gets slightly cheesy for a moment, plus the cannibals don't get enough screen time. It's still good bloody fun though. A great sex scene helps out, of course. Plus this has some quicksand. A velociraptor rape scene would have been a welcome surprise, haha.
My friends puzzlebox and Dave K gave this 4 stars? They should be ashamed of themselves!! ; )
This rules! BUY THIS NOW!!!!!!
