Massimo has a young mistress and, for seeing her even when the family moves to their beach house, she will come at the house dressed as a nun and with the purpose of tutoring Massimo's daughter, who failed at school.
Doctor Taylor, his wife Elizabeth and their teenage daughter Lana go to an isolated hospital in the Brazilean jungle, close to the Amazon river; they are attacked by savages and he sees them kill and eat his wife, and abduct the girl. Taylor manages to get back to civilization, but he needs psychiatric help; only Doctor Ana believes his story about cannibals, and takes the risk of going with him and a few rich people who can pay for a safari in the remote jungle. The cannibals decimate a number of the safari members in a succession of attacks, and only Taylor, the sexy lady doctor, and a photograph, rich the cannibal tribe - only to discover that she is now the wife of the tribe leader, and considered a goddess. The tribe has adopted her as a white goddess. Written by
Are you Mr Martin?
May we sit with you?
It's a public place.
I'm told that you know the Malavi region very well; better than you know the palm of your own hand.
No. Leave the palms of my hands out of it. It'd be impossible to know that region in depth.
Who would know it, then?
Only the Gaevis know it well.
That's just who we're looking for.
The Gaevis? Well, in that case, you people better look for somebody else around here.

C-grade instalment in the ever popular cannibal catalogue, light years behind "Cannibal Holocaust" and not much closer to "Mangiati Vivi" or Cannibal Ferox". The indomitable Al Cliver takes centre stage, playing an explorer whose pre-adolescent daughter is abducted by cannibals while on a voyage down the Amazon river. Years later he returns with photo journalists in toe in an attempt to locate and retrieve her, and discovers she has ascended to local deity status.
At times incoherent, the rough editing, mediocre make-up and shoddy cinematography make a tough job even tougher, while trying to contend with the puerile dubbing and overly intense acting. There's the ubiquitous animal cruelty (a giant butterfly sandwich anyone?), severed limbs and other grotesque depictions that you'd expect, but it all seems more gratuitous than usual. Spanish horror maestro Jess Franco has apparently jumped on the cannibal franchise bandwagon, minus a cogent storyline, in pursuit of some quick pay dirt.
Lacking most of the fundamentals that make a professional film, it's barely credible as a movie a labour that may even bore the cannibal enthusiasts.
