R.I.P. Ruggero Deodato – ‘Cannibal Holocaust’ Director Has Passed Away at 83

Breaking news this Thursday morning as Italian director Ruggero Deodato has reportedly died at the age of 83. The news came per The Sun who sources respected Italian news sources including Il Post and Il Messagero.

Deodato is best known as the filmmaker behind the shocking and controversial Cannibal Holocaust (1980), which inspired several notable filmmakers including Quentin Tarantino and Eli Roth, the latter of which would cast Deodato in his own Hostel: Part II (2007).

His contributions are scattered across the board, although he also directed giallos Body Count (1986) and Phantom of Death (1987), as well as the cult The Barbarians (1987) and House on the Edge of the Park (1980). He recently helmed a segment of Deathcember (2019).

The Sun notes that as a solo director he made more than 30 movies but was most famous for 1980’s pioneering shocker Cannibal Holocaust, which was incredibly controversial for several reasons, including that the “gruesome film featured scenes of sadomasochism and real animal slaughter.” It was banned in several countries.

It’s also the direct inspiration behind Eli Roth’s cannibal horror The Green Inferno (2013).
