A musician witnesses the murder of a famous psychic, and then teams up with a fiesty reporter to find the killer while evading attempts on their lives by the unseen killer bent on keeping a dark secret buried.
Fascinated by forbidden rituals and ceremonies, world explorer Arthur Davis takes a crew with hidden cameras to Africa and South America to secretly record the beauty and horror of the "law of the jungle". BRUTES AND SAVAGES is the filmed document of his death-defying adventures. Shocking, brutal and repulsive, this film mixes bizarre authentic footage with incredibly exploitive (and often hilarious) "re-enactments" of his findings. Animal sacrifices, bizarre tribal ceremonies, mating rituals and even brain surgery. Written by
Wearing a safari suit does not mean one is on a real safari
Arthur Davis, whoever the bloody hell he is, allegedly on safari, (wearing a faded pink safari suit does not mean one is on a real safari) shows us all sorts of alleged tribal rituals in Sudan, and South America.
Boring mockumentary likely filmed in the Hollywood Hills, rather than Sudan, except for parts of the crocodile attack, which were obviously filmed in someone's swimming pool, using a plastic croc head on hinges to open and close its jaws, while the guy it is supposedly eating makes monkey noises while getting his arm bitten off!
That bit was amusing in its ineptitude, the tribes people slathering paint on each other's faces, and asses, while some wear bright yellow polka dot pants and speaking perfect English, despite the fact that native Sudanese speak Arabic, was just stupid, and what the hell was the purpose of the disco music on the soundtrack? Upbeat 16th notes on hi-hats, and wah wah guitars don't go well with two tribesmen going at each other with knives.
For those unintentionally amusing moments, the real(?) animal death, and real brain surgery footage was unwatchable, and ruined any "so bad it's good" vibe the film had.
I'll generously give this 4/ 10, for unintended laughs during the aforementioned swimming pool attack bit, but a 1/ 10 for the remainder of it.
