Storyline

A man named Pete gets a phone call from his friend, Jemma, who says she has evidence that a professor missing in the Amazon is still alive. Pete hires two men, Mark and Fred, to steal a plane and fly down to the jungle to meet with her. Once there, they meet with Jemma and head into the jungle. The group gets the help of a young native girl to take them to the legendary Imas tribe, the tribe in which the professor was said to be with. However, during their search for the Imas, they run into gold hunters, who are intent on killing the tribe and stealing their treasure. Now racing against the treasure seekers to reach the Imas, they also uncover another scandal in the jungle and try to shut them both down to save the local natives. Written by Helltopay27

Trivia

A real monkey is actually blow-darted in the film, resulting in 12 seconds being cut from the UK release. Despite this, however, there are no animal deaths, which is rare for an Italian-exploitation cannibal movie. See more »

a very scary movie
2 April 2017 | by (Barry's bay Ontario Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a very scary movie. I do not know why it got 3.8. That is just underrating it. I give it a 6. It is a very good horror movie. It not a sequel to Cannibal holocaust and that is why it is a good movie. Cannibal holocaust was just gross crap and had nothing to do with being scary. This is very scary. It has a great story line. It also has great acting. It also has great special effects. It is scarier then The silence of lambs could ever be. This scarier then The Omen and that is not easy to do. This is scary then the 2010 remake of A Nightmare on elm street could ever be. This is scarier then the 2009 reboot of Friday the 13th could ever be. If you like real scary movies you should see this movie.
