Cheap jungle action, actually far worse than the standard, 1 September 2003
Author: EyeAskance from fabulous Las Vega$!

This typically abysmal Crown International Pictures release deals with a little boy who is the sole survivor of an airplane crash in a savage jungle. Apparently an on-location-filming epic, it still manages to incorporate a great deal of "Wild Kingdom" type stock footage on obviously different film-stock.

TERROR IN THE JUNGLE has some accidentally hilarious moments, my personal favorite being an early scene aboard the plane, where a rock band with crappy Beatle wigs entertains the plane's passengers with a song as a sultry starlet dances 'A-go-go in the aisle. Obviously, this was a desperate pitch for a screaming movie-poster tagline such as "HEAR THE NEW SMASH HIT BY(insert unknown rock band name here)!!". Cast of nobodies presumably went straight back to driving cabs, cutting hair, etc. after the film's wrap-up...the director, however, would later become a director of all-male porn features.

Ultrabad film lovers will want to track this one's the kind of bad that makes you reevaluate the crowning of something like PLAN NINE as "the worst movie ever"...which it ain't.
