mondo delights

Another one of the jungle series of mondo flicks, this one following an expedition deep into unknown and FORBIDDEN territory. Kwaheri is one of the better mondo flicks in my opinion because it has some very unique and interesting footage. The main point of the expedition is to find a witchdoctor who performs illegal skull surgeries and along the way we see footage of wildlife and native african life. This footage is quite extraordinary and quite impressive. The narration, on the other hand, is pure exploitation and thus needless. So view this for the unique footage contained in the film, and you'll get your fix for no holds barred jungle adventure. Not for the squeamish, but if you can bring yourself to watch it, Kwaheri is very worthwhile.
