Virgin Sacrifice (1959)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

As a child an adventurer saw a virgin sacrificed and he swore he'd never see such things again. Years later he's back in the jungle and a female friend of his is kidnapped by an evil tribe so he must track them down before they kill her. Even at 63-minutes this film here seems extremely long and the final half hour especially as we just see the same places over and over again as we really do have to sit through a track chase. It's funny but the company who made this, Releasing Corporation of Independent Producers, is the funniest thing in the film. The tagline and trailer promised that a real deadly Indian tribe was used for the movie but there were several scenes where you could tell it was a white man with mud (or something) on him. The performances are all rather bland but we do get some nice footage of some wildlife. Director Wagner was apparently a very popular stage director in Mexico and he certainly keeps the film moving as well as he could but there wasn't too much even Kubrick could have done with this thing. Wagner would appear in several films as an actor including the classic THE WILD BUNCH. By the time this movie ends I was really bored out of my mind and that's not good especially considering the short running time. This was the last film on Something Weird's triple feature and playing third is exactly where it belongs.
