Jiving Jungle Jerk in Darker India!
16 March 2012 | by (The El Monte Legion Stadium) – See all my reviews

Once again, dubbed in English loin gown wearing muscle guy swings through the trees, this time banyan bushes, Lex Barker, in the guise of the great adventurer Tramal Naik, Indian Hunter. He's always looking for ways to curb native savagery. The titular bad guys are the Tughs, religious fanatics who prey upon Europeans cuz they are the tastiest. Tramal goes in search of a kidnapped white woman with his faithful companions Kammamurie, played to the hilt by the ever tightening Franco Ballanuri, Agher done simply by Jack Rex and the hilarious Raf Pindi as Urti. Don't forget the tiger friend of all righteous jungle fighters, Flooti the Fabulous. All of them are seasoned safari saps! Big cardboard fun ensues as our hero tries to penetrate the fantastical mystery surrounding the mega banyan bush. As it turns out, the bush is the entrance to the solid gold temple where the Tughs are holding the white woman who is an unwilling high priestess for Black Kali, the multi-armed goddess of massive sadistic savagery. It sounds like a serial made many years before. Lex does what Lex did best, mumbles some idiot verbiage and beats the hordes of miscreants into mounds of pulverized blackish flesh.

The "Black Devils of Kali" is what is known as a "Peblum", an Italian/Germanic loin cloth adventure. Its all rubbish, really and no better or no worse than hundreds of other silly dubbed "B" movies that were sort of popular back in those days. This played on the bottom bill of some other thing nobody remembers the name of. If you remember then you're a fan beyond compare. Enjoy it for that.
