Storyline

Michael Sopkiw hitches a ride to Brazil to dig up some dinosaur bones. Once in Brazil he gets in a few tangles with the locals and manages to secure a ride on a charter flight deep into Amazonia. All hell breaks loose as the plane crashes deep in the heart of the jungle, leaving Sopkiw, megalomaniac Soares, and a bunch of super models on their own to trek back to society. The group runs into cannibals, quick sand, murderous animals, and a renegade mine run by slave owners. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Trashy and sleazy mix of action/adventure and cannibal mayhem.
11 March 2002 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

"Massacre in Dinosaur Valley" is a campy "Mountain of a Cannibal God" imitation which features lots of sleaze and plenty of violence.Director Michele Massimo Tarantini blends stomach churning gore like breast mutilation with tongue in cheek humour.The cast is pretty awful,but Italian trash veteran Michael Sopkiw("Blastfighter","Devil Fish")shines as a hero!I love the scene where Vietnam vet has his entrails eaten by cannibals!Anyway I'd recommend this one since it's nice and fun to watch.Check it out especially if you like cannibal flicks.
