A Werewolf in the Amazon
4 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

Five friends, Bruno, Natasha, Carol, Raul and Samantha (played by Pedro Neschling, Danielle Winits, Djin Sganzerla, Bruno de Lucca and Karina Bacchi respectively) make a trip to the Amazon rain forest to have a good time and get high on daime tea, a local hallucinogenic specialty. They are guided by a guy named JP (Evandro Mesquita) and aren't worried about a murder spree that has been occurring in the area. Soon things turn sinister and people start dying, as there appears to be a werewolf on the loose. Could it all be related to a reclusive mad scientist Dr. Moreau (Paul Naschy) who lives nearby and has been conducting bizarre experiments with both humans and animals?

As expected from Ivan Cardoso, the style is intentionally trashy and much closer to comedy than horror. Most of the humour is provided by the banter between Nuno Leal Maia and Tony Tornado playing a doctor and a cop investigating the murders, but other strange plot turns are amusing too, such as the dramatic musical number literally bursting out of nowhere. There is also plenty of female nudity, of course, mostly courtesy of the tribe of strong and horny female Amazon warriors created by Moreau. Some hand-held video camera footage is also used to comply with the trend of modern horrors.

Even though some of the actresses are a joy to the eye (particularly Djin Sganzerla and Danielle Winits) and the colourful lighting and production design are pretty cool, some major pacing problems make the advancement of the nonsensical plot lines a tad tiresome at points. Even so, at only 77 minutes, the movie is entertaining enough for what it's worth and recommended for fans of the trashy Cardoso style, even though I think he's done better in the past.
