The Plan 9 of Jungle Movies
3 August 2000 | by noahaxSee all my reviews

I bought this movie after seeing it described in a catalog as the "Plan 9" of jungle movies. I'm pleased to say that I was not disappointed. This piece of cinematic shlock is every bit as laughably bad as Ed Wood's sci-fi epic.

The plot of this movie is pretty much irrelevant. Basically, the film makers took a few actors, shot them standing around a forest, then intercut this material with stock footage of Africa. The discrepancy between the two types of footage is extremely obvious, and pretty darn funny.

Like many other exploitation movies, this movie also features a fair amount of topless females. We get to see several pair of African breasts. However,when Velda, played by a white actress, goes topless, her goodies are carefully shielded by tall grass.

Is this a bit racist? Yes, but not nearly as racist as the rambling prologue to this movie which features white actors in "brown-face" makeup, pretending to be Indians.

The movie also features perhaps the worst gorilla costumes you have ever seen.

Connoisseurs of bad cinema will enjoy the varied treats of "Untamed Mistress." All others should avoid this like the plague.
