Famed playwright Tennessee Williams directed the majority of the film. Credited director James L. Wolcott was a close friend of Williams, and when Tennessee asked for the pleasure of directing, he was allowed to do so for the fun of the experience. See more »

Strangely watchable bit of Jungle camp
20 October 2007 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

"The Wild Women of Wongo" is a very bad movie, no doubt about it. It seems to be written by someone with the mindset of a rather imaginative eight year old, directed by someone with absolutely no interest in the craft, and acted by some models looking for a quick buck. Its not even that good for unintended laughs and will only appeal to the most die-hard fans of psychotronic cinema.

For some odd reason however, it manages to be rather entertaining. Personally, I am a lover of camp (only when its unintentional though), and this film offers plenty of gloriously campy moments. Its full of Tiki-lounge like locations, and the soundtrack seems to be made of lost Martin Denny records. Any film that opens with a narration by Mother Nature you know will be more than just a little surreal. Plus, watching attractive native girls run around in skimpy attire attacking and capturing male tribes always ensure a good time. Plus, I loved the men of Wongo, a group of brutes with hair thats colored blue for some reason. Also, oddly enough, these cave people learned to speak the English language concisely millenniums before the advent of the language (maybe primitive man wasn't all that primitive). Simply put, if you're intrigued by what you've read, you'll probably enjoy this. (5/10)
