"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. Grade- B
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. Grade- B-
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. Grade-B+
* 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!!!!!!
They have a never-ending hunger for human flesh!.

"This collection from Shriek Show was quite good, if your looking for some gory good fun or sleazy Italian cannibal films then you've come to the right place. The reason why I got this collection in the first place was because it had both Jungle Holocaust and Massacre In Dinosaur Valley I already own Eaten Alive which I must admit is not a favorite of mine and I couldn't resist the cheap price for this boxset $17.99 for three films. Eaten Alive was unintentionally hilarious especially the scene at the helicopter which has some of the most inane and dumbest dialogue I've ever heard, the film also had a great gore scene at the end where both women Paula Senatore and Me Me Lai get eaten while their still alive. Theres tons of gore, violence and nudity in this film but the only problem is that some of the footage was stolen from other cannibal films and it was pretty obvious, Eaten Alive was so bad but some parts can be enjoyable I guess. I reviewed Eaten Alive last year and I felt like my review was a bit too harsh still I would give this film a 2.5/5 star rating which is an o.k. cannibal horror film with some cheesy and over the top bad acting and other hilarious stuff that happens in it which I find slightly entertaining.
Jungle Holocaust was directed by Ruggero Deadato and it was done before Cannibal Holocaust and it seems like he was good at it unfortunately these films always had some real live animals being killed but if you don't like this sort of stuff then forget it, Jungle Holocaust was a fantastic Italian cannibal film it starts off with a group of people who are looking for a drilling site deep in the jungles of Malaysia and they soon get lost, their colleagues Robert Harper (Massimo Foschi) and Rolf (Ivan Rassimov) need to meet up with the group but their plain crashes in the middle of the Jungle and their pilot gets killed and the other team has been eaten by the cannibals until Robert is captured and is kept in a pit and is stripped from his clothes and humiliated by the other tribe, he manages to escape and kidnaps one of the women from the tribe. I liked the first half of the film better than the second half but I still thought it was great. The gore was brilliant and if you enjoy this type of film then you're going to love this, theres scenes of cannibalism, rape and one character gets killed by a huge spike ball trap that skewers him on a tree 5/5 stars.
Massacre In Dinosaur Valley was quite a bizarre and cheesy cannibal film, I don't think it was as gory as the other two and there weren't that many flesh eating scenes in it but it does compensate with having lots of nudity. I think this film was more like a jungle adventure only with a bit of gore and violence, Michael Sopkiw stars as Kevin Hall a bone hunter from the Boston Institute Of Paleontology he takes a plain trip across the jungle along with a group of people to go to a place where there are lots of fossils and bones to study however the plain crashes and he is left to lead this group into safety from a bunch of cannibals among other things like quicksand, snakes, crocodiles and some slave traders. The films storyline wasn't that good infact there was alot of stupidity and the dialogue was quite laughable very much like Eaten Alive but it did have its moment and was a bit fun 3.5/5 stars. Shriek show provided the discs with typical trailers for other trashy European horror films and the usual interviews with cast and crew and picture galleries, I highly recommend this boxset to Italian horror fans.
