Directed by Umberto Lenzi
A drug dealer's attempts to exploit a cannibal tribe go very wrong in this notorious cannibal classic. After Mike rips off mobsters, he flees to the jungle, where his cocaine binges cause him to kill members of a local tribe. When Mike meets three students researching cannibals, he leads them into the jungle, where the angry tribe is waiting for revenge. Sleazoid Express' Bill Landis called the "ultraviolent and unrelenting" shocker, "an epochal event in horror movies. Much like BLOOD FEAST... it challenged the audience's expectations and surpassed them."
A drug dealer's attempts to exploit a cannibal tribe go very, very wrong.
Cast: John Morghen, Lorraine De Selle
Terrible acting, but always wanted to see it
unabridged animal cruelty really threw me out of it at the start, truly hard to watch, but other than that, the movie was decent. Nothing particularly remarkable, though. Maybe for the time it was considered over the top, but nearly ever Saw movie outdoes the gore. I'd only recommend watching this if you enjoy the cannibal genre. I'd give it a 4 skull, if not for the needless animal cruelty.
The killing of Mike was awesome, never seen that before!
why do I waste my time on these horrible movies? I cave into the hype just to be disappointed over and over again! Only upsetting parts in this movie is when animals get killed!
one of the best in the cannibal sub genra Italian exploitation was the best of it's time!!
