After finishing Curucu, director Curt Siodmak discovered he had enough film leftover to make another movie, so he quickly wrote out a screenplay, got some of the actors from Curucu, and made the movie Love Slaves of the Amazons (1957). See more »
The scene after Rock Dean (John Bromfield) kills a python with his machete and then wipes the blood off the knife, is the same blood wiping scene after killing the leopard. See more »
I spend a lot of time trying to add lesser known 50's sci-fi titles to my ever growing collection. Unfortunately I came to this title. Cool title and stars Beverly Garland made by Universal - how could I miss? Although the poster looks great on this flick, find the strength to resist. The Brazilian locations are great and acting was acceptable but whoever wrote the script was a loser. This played out more like an episode of Scooby Doo(old man Smithers and all). The part that really killed me was that after they ruin the whole movie after 45 minutes, it goes on for another 35 minutes!! Seriously, for lesser known movies, check out Giant from the Unknown or Monster from Green Hell before you ever touch this garbage.
