Trivia:
The actress who plays Wana (credited as Adrienne Bourbeau) is believed by many film buffs to actually be Adrienne Barbeau - an extremely unlikely possibility, seeing as how Ms. Barbeau, having been born in 1945, would have been only 12 or 13 at the time this film was made.See more »
Goofs:
Revealing mistakes: In at least two scenes (the ape men attacking Mona and Engor being forced to march), the actors can be seen wearing contemporary underwear beneath their animal skin outfits.See more »

Tell Ya 'Bout Them Wongo Women, 1 November 2008
Author: bkoganbing from Buffalo, New York

I think that if Ed Wood were alive today or could make his complaints felt from beyond this mortal coil, he'd be haunting the Medved Brothers who dared not include The Wild Women Of Wongo in their list of the 50 Worst Films. Next to this Plan Nine From Outer Space plays like Citizen Kane.

This story is set on the mythical islands of Wongo and Guna and it seems as though the gene pool has played one dirty trick. The men of Wongo look like the inbreds from Deliverance and the women like playboy bunnies. On the other hand in Guna land, the men are these gorgeous beach boy surfer hunks and the women look like someone left the pound door open one night.

Both islands worship the crocodile god and the croc demands some sacrifices every so often. When one of the Wongo women actually subdues and kills the crocodile god, the theological implications are cataclysmic.

There are some hairy ape men like creatures who invade both the islands and it takes a while for them to come to a common plan of alliance.

That's about the sum and substance of this awful film which was shot in the Everglades on location. This film must have been a great after midnight third feature in the drive-ins when folks could look at the Guna men and Wongo women if they needed a little extra inspiration for the night's fun.

There's a parrot who serves as a kind of Greek chorus to all the silly goings on and when the parrot gives the best acting performance in the film, you KNOW how bad this is going to be.
