Storyline

Anthropologists take a trip to the jungles of Colombia to study native cannibals. Instead, they find a band of drug dealers, using the natives to harvest coca leaves. After awhile, the natives are tired of being tortured slaves, and turn on their masters, as well as the anthropologists, thus filling the screen with gruesome splatter! Written by Humberto Amador

Rudy wears a neckerchief bearing the OshKosh logo, but the lettering seems to switch between being a 'mirror image' of itself (so it reads hsoKhsO) and appearing as it should, often several times within one scene. See more »

A few mates, on a Friday night, a few cans, snacks and a copy of this - you can't go wrong!
10 December 1999 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

You can't take it seriously. It's really silly, poorly acted and really cheesey in parts. But it does have a hefty bucket load of blood to keep gorehounds like my good self happy. Make sure to see it uncut, because to be honest, there isn't much else going for it(!) I just wish they left the animals alone in these films. But keep your eyes out for the highlights; the unfortunate John Morghen, who has his manhood sliced clean off and eaten by one of the Cannibals. This film is not as bad as it is supposed to be, though.

Otherwise a good Cannibal flick, better than the rest of them, but naturally nowhere near as good as Deodato's masterpiece - Cannibal Holocaust, which sits safely on it's throne.
