Maritza Martin Munoz,
The original shockumentary sequel made up of episodes in the life of man and beast, filmed all over the world - New Guinea, Germany, Singapore, Portugal, Australia, America and beyond. This time around, the voyage includes vivisection, recreations of old west lynchings, a visit to a mortician's school, transvestites, wild sex clubs and alligator hunting. Written by

I recently picked up the "Mondo Cane collection" from Blue Underground. The third of the official Mondo films is the sequel to Mondo cane. Some of the segments are interesting, some are boring, some are heart-breaking & some seem like filler. On a whole this is not as good of a documentary as the first Mondo film was. Still worth watching at least once, i guess.
