Quotes:
Jeremy Taylor:Are you Mr Martin?
Mr. Martin:That's me.
Jeremy Taylor:May we sit with you?
Mr. Martin:It's a public place.
Jeremy Taylor:I'm told that you know the Malavi region very well; better than you know the palm of your own hand.
Mr. Martin:No. Leave the palms of my hands out of it. It'd be impossible to know that region in depth.
Ana:Who would know it, then?
Mr. Martin:Only the Gaevis know it well.
Ana:That's just who we're looking for.
Mr. Martin:The Gaevis? Well, in that case, you people better look for somebody else around here.

Jess Franco chomps on the cannibal genre, 30 August 2009
Author: udar55 from Williamsburg, VA

Prof. Taylor (Al Cliver) and his family are attacked on their boat by a group of cannibals. Taylor is taken back to the village and barely survives, losing his young daughter and left arm (!) in the process. He spends the next decade or so manic and recovering in New York City with the help of his nurse Ana (Lina Romay). When he finally comes to his senses, Taylor - with aid from his rich benefactors - mounts another journey into the jungle to rescue his daughter. Problem is that she is now married to the head of the tribe and, most likely, hates her one- armed daddy.

Always down for a little exploitation, director Jess Franco got his cannibal groove on in the late 70s/early 80s and shot this one in the south of Spain. The cannibals are laughable (one is spotted wearing a wedding band) and look like they were grabbed in a Lowes parking lot (not far off actually as Franco says they hired gypsies). Plus, they wear goofy make up that makes them look like they are members of the baseball gang in THE WARRIORS. Sabrina Siani, memorably nude in Fulci's CONQUEST, shows where she got her start as the grown up daughter-turned- cannibal-queen. Franco calls her the "most stupid" person he has ever worked with in the Blue Underground disc's documentary. He then stops himself short and says that he has worked with many dumb leading ladies and that she is up there in the top. He also has kind words for Cliver, saying he was professional and sober which "for a Latin person is a miracle." While the film isn't even close to the genre's best offerings, it moves along fast enough, features some skin and delivers some gory goods (yeah, I'm easy to please tonight). One thing is for sure though, you will be singing the "Oh, oh, oooooooh" cannibal theme over and over by the time the film is done.
