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.

Jungle Gore: Worst Cannibals Ever!, 25 August 2011
Author: Tromafreak from Tallahassee, Florida

The First rule, or what should be the first rule of the Jungle Gore genre is, if you're not Italian, butt out! Because chances are good you're only gonna embarrass yourself. Especially you, Jess Franco. Yet, I've never seen Lina Romay in one of these epics, so, maybe we should give ol' Franco a pass, this time. I mean, just look at her! And if you must know, White Cannibal Queen is not even the worst of the Jongle Gore epics. I mean, I'm pretty sure it was got for quite a while, but in case you didn't know, in 2003, Bruno Mattei would finally work up the nerve to try his hand at this, and the shot-on-video travesty called Cannibal Holocaust 2: The Beginning was born. And considering Mattei was Italian, well, that's just ridiculous! Just sayin'. Either way, if you didn't absolutely despise Cannibal Terror, then maybe you won't consider White Cannibal Queen as repulsive as most do. Me? I liked it! This movie is about a family who are out on the "Amazon river" are attacked by savages. The young daughter, kidnapped. The wife, eaten. years later, Dr. Taylor returns to this jungle, in hopes of finding his now-grown daughter. Unfortunately, things don't go quite as expected. But then again, when do things ever go smoothly when Cannibals are involved? But these guys shouldn't put up too much of a fight, being that they're the most fake-looking cannibals in Jungle Gore history. This is just sad. Some of them are even white! Just a pathetic movie, in general. However, considering Lina Romay & a rather groovy score, White Cannibal Queen is OK in my book! Yet, if you got any schlock-pride at all, you'll just go for something of quality like Cannibal Ferox, and call it a day. 6/10
