Storyline

Two crooks (Mario and Roberto) kidnap a girl and hide out in the house of a friend who lives by trading with the natives in a nearby jungle. The friend's wife is raped by Mario; she exacts revenge by tying him to a tree and leaving him to the cannibals. She then informs the kidnapped girl's parents of their daughter's whereabouts, and the crooks flee through the jungle. Written by Ørnås

Trivia

Was at one point on the UK Government's 'video nasty' list, purely as it features the word 'cannibal' in its title, which led to it being seen as on the same levels of violence as Cannibal Holocaust (1980), Cannibal Apocalypse (1980), and Cannibal Ferox (1981), but it is nowhere near as graphically violent.

Goofs

Near the end of the film cars can be seen driving past on a road less than 50 meters from the cannibals' supposedly remote village. See more »

I watched it so you don't have to.
17 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Out on video at last! One of the original video nasties that were banned by Britain. It was finally released uncut in 2003. Obviously, the Brits don't like cannibal movies as they banned five of them.

This film was really bad on so many levels.

It seemed as if time and distance were totally disregarded. For example, Monsieur Danville (Olivier Mathot) left for three days and seemed to come back in 30 minutes. The jungle must have been in Southern Spain, as it took everyone so little time to get there.

If you are looking for titillating scenes, there is only one: Pamela Stanford taking a bath. Other than that the rest focused mainly on the eating of people's guts. Yech! They really didn't need to ban this as it is too awful to watch.
