Cult item.
31 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

This is not a good movie by any means, it's technically crude and pretty boring actually, BUT it may very well be the ultimate cult experience! Half soft-porno flick and half gory cannibal shocker (with the gore effects being good for their time), it's a truly mind-boggling hybrid. Even wackier than "Caligula" ! (**)
