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
What's the first thing that comes into your mind after hearing the title from an early 80's movie called "Horror Safari"? You bet it's an slasher flick that involves animals or cannibals after the craze from the 70's involving sharks, apes, cannibals, etc. Well "Horror Safari" is a mix of semi-exploitation scenes (involving decaps, impales, etc.), and the typical but cheap adventure scenes.
"Horror Safari" doesn't deserves a chance to be watched. It's a cheap, mediocre, slow flick that shouldn't be even aired on late night cable. Though there's some gore that doesn't makes up for the rest of the movie that is truly painful to watch.
If the movie tried to copy the spectacular "Raiders Of The Lost Ark" it failed miserably on every aspect.
Please avoid this safari because it's not fun, you don't learn, and worst of all, it's not even a decent horror b-movie.
