With the help of two local guides, Professor Monroe encounters two tribes, the Yacumo and the Yanomamo. While under the hospitality of the latter tribe, he finds the remains of the crew and several reels of their undeveloped film. Upon returning to New York City, Professor Monroe views the film in detail, featuring the director Alan Yates, his girlfriend Faye Daniels, and cameramen Jack Anders and Mark Tomaso.

Man is omnipotent; nothing is impossible for him. What seemed like unthinkable undertakings yesterday are history today. The conquest of the moon for example: who talks about it anymore? Today we are already on the threshold of conquering our galaxy, and in a not too distant tomorrow, we'll be considering the conquest of the universe, and yet man seems to ignore the fact that on this very planet there are still people living in the stone age and practicing cannibalism.

A group of rescuers set off up the Amazon in search of a film crew that has not returned.The rescuers soon come to the realization that the film crew have been murdered and eaten by the local cannibals.They rescue the film footage from the cannibals and bring it home in the hope it will shed some light on the fate of the crew,but what they find in the reels of film is even worse than what they experienced themselves in the jungle.After so many years being told it was a piece of trash I was very interested to see for myself what all the fuss was about.....well I gotta tell you I was blown away,it is technically very proficient and added to that a very memorable score that at times doesn't quite suit what you are seeing on screen but I think that was the point....the animal killings I must say were quite disturbing especially the turtle,I really don't know how someone slaughters animals for a living EUUUGGHH!.....even the natives were very believable and I can see why someone might believe that it was a documentary,it really hit the spot,its gore/torture/rape scenes were all done with the utmost reality,I guess the prominence of nudity and genitalia aided the believability.... the film kind of leaves you numb,I must say it left me transfixed and speechless......a remarkable film that will live long in my memory
