This very gory horror film was shot and released in a hurry to capitalize on the success of George Romero's horror classic DAWN OF THE DEAD (1979). Shot in Atlanta by an Italian crew, the story involves Vietnam vet John Saxon and his men who have been infected by a deadly cannibal virus
while in Southeast Asia. Soon the soldiers are ripping and chewing their way through the streets of Atlanta until the local law enforcement authorities corner the cannibals in the sewer system and blow them away. Gianetto De Rossi, who handled the gore chores on another Romero ripoff, ZOMBIE
(1979), does the gross special effects here.
