Cut and Run (1985) Review:

“Cut and Run” is a lesser known horror flick from Ruggero Deodato, the director of the infamous “Cannibal Holocaust”. It is a very unusual flick that mixes action, adventure and horror and manages to blend the genres together quite well.

In this film, the violence is a bit toned down as compared to Deodato’s other movies such as “Cannibal Holocaust” and “The House on the Edge of the Park”. But despite being less graphics, it, however, contains a few scenes of intense violence such as decapitation, disemboweling, and implement.

The plot is fairly interesting but can get a bit confusing at times. Still, “Cut and Run” is very entertaining to watch and relates a fun adventure. Decent performances from Lisa Blount (Prince of Darkness), Leonard Man (Night School) and Richard Lynch (Bad Dreams) add to the fun.


To conclude, “Cut and Run” is a fun action packed gory adventure. If you’re a fan of Ruggero Deodato and enjoyed his two other films “Jungle Holocaust” and “Cannibal Holocaust”, then you should definitely check this one out, just make sure you get the uncut version for the full effect.
