A group of Japanese soldiers are transporting a large shipment of gold through the jungles of the Phillipines when they are captured by a cannibal tribe. After a large battle with the cannibals, several members of the group are dismembered and killed. A few of the soldiers survive and successfully hide the treasure in the jungle. Thirty six years later, an expedition heads into the jungle to locate the lost treasure, and wind up in a battle against the elements. Written by
If you love to see a group of people tenting in the director's garden and walking from the east end of it to the south end, whilst the voice-over mumbles about myriads of mosquitos, the green hell and the sultriness of the jungle; if you generally love to hear the action instead of seeing it; if you like totally senseless dialogue, the worst acting you can imagine (and, yes, I've seen a lot of them Stuart Whitman and Edmund Purdom films), alligators in the Philippines, minute-long table dance scenes without any relation to the story, a gory beginning and slow-motion falls into the "abyss" (ca. 2,50 metres): THIS IS YOUR FILM. Oh, and yes, Laura Gemser is getting undressed. (That's what I gave the point for).
