So bad, it's GREAT!!
28 March 2002 | by (Cullman, Alabama) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of the great old "B" movies from the 80s. The acting is totally amateur, but perfect for the campy theme. It has everything needed for an adventure movie of this type; jungle localles, dirty boat captain, gambling, savages, and the always welcome nude scenes (wow, but Beth really made the movie!!)

Rent it, buy it, borrow it, STEAL it!! It's worth the time!!!
