In the Italian horror film Cannibal Apocalypse, John Saxon stars as Norman Hopper, an American Vietnam veteran who was captured and held as a POW for several years. When he returns home, he finds that his life has become a living nightmare. Hopper and his friend Charlie (played by Tony King) are forced to confront their inner demons, as they both become infected with a virus that causes them to crave human flesh. The virus is actually a form of cannibalism, and it spreads rapidly through the population.

As the two friends struggle to resist their hunger, they are pursued by the police and by Dr. Fredrick, a scientist who is determined to study the virus and find a cure.

Meanwhile, a group of cannibals led by Bukowski (Giovanni Lombardo Radice) have escaped from a mental institution and are wreaking havoc on the streets. They are relentless in their pursuit of flesh and will stop at nothing to satisfy their cravings.

Elizabeth Turner also appears in the film as Hopper's love interest, Jane, who becomes caught up in the madness as she tries to help Hopper and Charlie survive.
