ENJOY THE PCP-FUELED HIJINKS OF FRANCO PROSPERI'S "WILD BEASTS" ON BLU-RAY, COURTESY OF SEVERIN FILMS!
I am a sucker for nature strikes back / nature run amok flicks! JAWS is my favorite film of all time, and I adore all its sequels and knock-offs! And just when I thought I had seen just about every killer animal flick I could find, I stumbled into Franco Prosperi's WILD BEASTS! This movie is crazy as hell, and I'm forever indebted to Severin Films for giving it a legitimate Blu-ray release!
Synopsis: For his final work, "Godfather Of Mondo" Franco E. Prosperi took on the Nature Strikes Back genre and delivered perhaps the most shocking movie of his controversial career! When PCP gets into the water supply of a city zoo, the drug-crazed beasts including tigers, lions, cheetahs, hyenas and elephants (as well as seeing eye dogs and sewer rats) go berserk and rampage through the streets of Rome!
What follows is a terrifying mix of actual animal attacks (supervised by professional circus trainers) and over-the-top 80s Italian gore that remains the greatest eco-revenge shocker in EuroCult history! Lorraine De Selle (CANNIBAL FEROX, HOUSE AT THE EDGE OF THE PARK) and Ugo Bologna (NIGHTMARE CITY) star in this disturbing urban bloodbath!
