Ah, don't you love classic Italian cinema? The Bicycle Thief, La
Dolce Vita, 8 1/2, that 1979 cannibal movie with Ursula
Andress and Stacy Keach...
When her anthropologist husband disappears
in New Guinea, Susan Stevenson (Andress, the original Bond girl)
convinces her colleague Dr. Edward Foster (Keach) to lead her into the
dark heart of the deadly jungle. But while exploring the forbidden
mountain of Ra-Rami, the expedition participants are attacked and

Grindhouse theaters with a whole new, interactive DVD experience.
Featuring back-to-back film presentations, complete with movie
trailers, commercials and an intermission, you can now enjoy the
exploitative nature of exclusively licensed, cult films in the comfort
of your own home."
