3.0 out of 5 stars A Euro Cannibal Movie wellspring. 16 Aug 2009
By Dave
"Man from Deep River" is a gorgeous looking, rather lyrical and at times even thoughtful (if rather sluggish) voyage of discovery into the jungle, with a heavy romantic angle to boot, that still manages to deliver the rather less than thoughtful and lyrical scenes of graphic violence and exploitation.
Though the animal deaths will be a step too far for many.

But its also an historically important film from an Exploitation point of view that (although owing a debt to various earlier films) offered up many fascinating, controversial and unique for the time elements.
Many of these elements would later be resurrected (as the film started its slow but popular 2 year trek across the globe) to form the basis for the excellent "Jungle Holocaust", which would itself spawn the rest of that infamous group of extreme 'Cannibal' movies that still remain as controversial today as they were when they first slashed across cinema screens.

It's not the best of the Cannibal bunch for sure, though certainly not the worst, but it is perhaps the most vital.

movie has dated a bit nowadays, but still worth a watch, from an era that pissed off the censors, one of the better 'nasties'

This is the movie that started it all.Made way back in 1972 this movie created a genre that lasted over a decade and included such gruesome yarns as Cannibal Holocaust and Eaten Alive.This is the first of the italian cannibal movies.
Ivan Rassimov plays an English photographer on holiday in Thailand.When accidently he kills a guy in a bar brawl he hires a boat and a guide and heads off upriver.He is soon captured by a local tribe and subjected to tourture but in a strange twist they accept him as one of their own.
Directed by Umberto Lenzi who later went on to direct Cannibal Ferox.MFDR is alot tamer than what was to come in the late 70s but that doesent mean its not nasty and contains sick scenes of animal butchery which were then common place in every other cannibal movie after.The scenes involving canniblism are still pretty strong too making this gruelling experience.
Its very well made though,with georgous scope photography and effective soundtrack.Well worth a look for italian horror fans and video nasty collectors.Shiek Shows region 1 only disc is uncut and features a good anamorphic transfer in 2.35:1 and extras include a short interview with director Lenzi.The UK disc from Hard Gore is cut by 3mins 45sec and is titled Deep River Savages.

3.0 out of 5 stars THE MONGOOSE OR THE COBRA? 6 Sep 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
This movie was originally released in 1972 under the title, "SACRIFICE." Ivan Rassimov plays a Swedish John Bradly (Sven) who gores to Thailand as a photographer along with his blond gf. (Like bringing sand to the beach.) They attend a kick-box tournament with the Thai crowd going wide as if it was the WWF. She gets bored and leaves. He gets drunk and in a bar fight, kills a man, then flees to the jungles between Burma and Thailand were he is captured by a sadistic tribe, who eventually make him one of them. The acting was fairly decent. The plot was one we have seen many times. There is a lot of animal violence in addition to people violence. While this film is recognized as the first cannibal horror film, it lacks much of the "horror" cannibalism and gore of later films.

sex, rape, full frontal Thai nudity, cannibalism, blood
