Like 'Mondo Magic' this was a bit too gross and won't become too many folks' favorite.

This is like 'Africa Addio' except without a lot of the colonial violence. Most of this violence is either self-inflicted or natural.

Is it watchable? Only if you're a fan of this genre. If you're not...stay FAR away.

The home style surgery scenes will make anyone squirm.

And running the risk of sounding insensitive...some of those natives were UGLY.

The Castiglionis were just following the Mondo footsteps laid for them by Jac and Pros.

Again, only if you're a fan.
