Pretty Good
22 December 2004 | by (C-Town) – See all my reviews

Though it is not great, and can not even be compared to Cannibal Ferox or Cannibal Holocaust, AMAZONIA is a pretty good film. It is more of a (gory) drama/action film rather then a horror film, but I think that most fans of the Italian splatter Cannibal films will enjoy this movie.

The main character in this film is a young, eighteen year old girl. This girl has gone to visit her family. Her family lives way out there in the middle of no where, out by the amazon. They all decide to take a ride on the boat. But, they go too far, and they are attacked by an amazon tribe. Everyone is killed, accept for the young girl. She is kidnapped, and taken deep into the amazon. Now, she must either find a way to escape, or be forced to live in the amazon with head hunters.

Though the violent scenes are kind of spread out, when they do happen they are very brutal and gory. If you like the old Italian cannibal films, then you will enjoy Amazonia.
