User Reviews

Just another Jungle Jim movie.

Well just about. This one is the only Jungle Jim movie that actually features black Africans as natives. Most of the other Jungle Jim movies featured natives that looked like south sea islanders. The story deals with an evil diamond smuggler who teams up with an evil native tribe to drive a peaceful tribe off their land. The film is heavily padded with stock footage. Also the title is a cheat. You would think a film with "man eaters" in the title would feature a man eating lion(s) or a cannibal tribe. The film features neither.
