I was seriously impresed with this disturbing film about tribal beliefs and rituals. The story itself is a bit far-fetched, but still it manages to hold your attention as a group of people go in search of Susans (Ursula Andress)husband, unbeknown to them that they are being followed by strange people in weird masks. There is a fair bit of gore along the way with animal and human sacrifces. Not the best acting in the world, but then i never expect films like this to be up for an oscar. If you enjoy movies with gore a plenty and cheesy storylines then this is a must for your collection, if you dislike such sceens as animals being eaten alive and people being killed in various gruesome ways then stay clear!

This is one of the better entires into the Cannibal genre. The acting is good and director Sergio Martino handles the film very well and avoids making it come across as chessy.

This version has all the blood and gore you would excpect from this kind of film such as, beheadings, people having their insides eaten and people having their heads smashed in. The film also has the beautiful Ursula Andress been stripped naked and having orange mud rubbed all over her by a couple of amazon women. This version is however slightly cut and has a couple of scenes removed. Still this is one of my personal favourite cannibal films and has my favourite score by composers Guido and Mauirizo De Angelis.

The quality is very good and the disc had both the widescreen and standard versions on a double sided disc.

This was a fairly lame cannibal exploitation film. Susan (Ursula Andress) and her obnoxious brother head off to an island of New Guinea to search for her missing husband. Stacy Keach and stock animal footage are employed along the way. The government doesn't allow expeditions in this area. They take a helicopter to a mountain, then walk to a beach (a nice wide one where a helicopter could land) then take a boat to an island. Plot continuity was not part of the plan. The plan was to get Ursala Andress stripped naked, tied up and greased down similar to what Bo Derek would later do in "Tarzan". We now know John Derek's fetish. Bo er ah Ursala doesn't encounter the cannibals until the last 20 minutes of the film.

In the 1970's this was great stuff. By today's standard it is really ho-hum. A few animals may have been killed for this film. There are better Ursala Andress films out there.

Im a big fan of zombie/cannibal/B-movie horrors/slashers so when i saw this i baught it immedietly. Previousley banned, gore and video nasty is written many times on the DVD sleeve so i was expecting lots of this film. But all i got was an avarage cannibal flick. There was even a statement by someone on it that said this would be 'one of the best cannibal films youd ever see'!
Now i must admit that this film isnt all that bad and should be viewed by all fans of the genier. But dont be expecting anything too great!
The violence in this film (which youll probably want lots of if you like this sort of film) is not that nasty but there are some bloody scenes every now and then. There is a scene that copys of 'Cannibal Holocaust' which is where a man gets his penis sliced off, although in this film it is very badly made and looks like a sausage!
Things that i shouldnt have to thell you is the quality of acting, special effects, dubbing, picture quality ect ect, which are all bad of course. But if your stupid enough to watch this and not enjoy this sort of film then you probably wont mind these things.
This film obviousley has a low budjet but if you were to compare it to other movies of the genier then it isnt that bad really. But if you were to compare it to any other film eccept from another B-movie 70/80s cannibal horror then it is obviousley still a cheap, crappy flick.
Overall this is a reasonably good Vipco' film with some bloody scenes but as i said earlier, dont be expecting anything too gory! For fans only!!!!!!!!!
