Bloody strange., 13 August 2006
Author: haildevilman from Tokyo, Japan

For a jungle film, the sets were a bit too perfect. They looked like they were filmed at a local park.

The scenes at the camp were also laughable. Someone built a tree house or two in their backyard and made a few scenes there.

Now for the good points; The ladies were HOT. Typical jungle film there. The jungle lass wearing provocatively styled animal skins. And the ladies in the safari party wearing REALLY tight shorts. Do women really dress that way on an expedition?

The film was obviously padded. It seemed like some of it was added on at the last minute.

The film didn't stink. But see it only if there's nothing else.

It wouldn't be x-rated today, but it's still a tad naughty.
