Maria is married to an abusive husband, and one day, she decides to run off with her secret lover: her husband's gardener, Roberto. Her cousin overhears their plan and kills Roberto with his car. Maria takes his body and performs a spell so that they will meet and she will love him when they become reincarnated into their next lives. Once they are reborn adults, Maria pursues Robert, but Robert is already married and doesn't remember her. Frustrated, she goes into the rain forest to an evil sorcerer, Rafau, who has a midget tribe of cannibals as his minions, but once she has lost her virginity, she must give her body to him. She accepts, but when she refuses to come back to him, Rafau casts a spell on Robert, who becomes catatonic. Now Maria, Robert's wife, and her sorcerer father team up to stop Rafau before Robert dies and Maria must be sacrificed. Written by Helltopay27

Cannibal Curse
13 March 2008 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Cannibal Curse (1987)

1/2 (out of 4)

Incredibly bad Hong Kong flick but I'm really not too sure what it's about. A mad doctor (or something) in the jungle has beautiful Asian women bath in a (?) magic pond then go out and have sex with men. Or something like that. Either way the film is simply boring and pretty poorly made and no, there aren't any cannibals in the film. The original title was Curse but perhaps they should have added some flesh eaters. The only thing that keeps me from giving this sucker a BOMB is the fact that there's a lot of beautiful Asian chicks getting naked throughout the film. Yeah, I'm nice like that.
