The snake that is milked onto the spearhead is clearly from the cobra family. The men claim that this venom will kill in seconds but in actuality the average death from cobra venom can take place up to thirty minutes later. See more »
The original 1977 UK cinema version ("Cannibal") was cut by around 4 minutes by the BBFC to heavily edit cannibalism scenes, closeups of Harper's naked penis, animal killings and shots of a man's arm being eaten by ants. When the film was finally submitted for DVD release in 2003 (as "Last Cannibal World") the BBFC required 2 minutes 46 secs of cuts to remove the scene of a live crocodile being gutted and to edit a rape sequence. The distributors had also offered a pre-cut version, removing a further 1 minute 47 secs, though in the end the longer BBFC-approved version was eventually released. See more »
Or at least that is what the movie is telling us. And even Deodata is telling us, that there are rituals in here that are based on reality. Now there are a lot of vile and really disturbing scenes in here, none more than the ones involving animal cruelty. Now Deodata says he would not shoot scenes like that anymore. But to be clear the scenes where realy animals are harmed, were not shot by him but by the producer.
At least that's what he claims and let's believe him. The movie is about survival and there are quite a few moments that may not make much sense. Apart from the brutality, there is also a lot of nudity. Is that something that makes your skin crawl? No pun intended, but you should be aware what you might be about to watch! Still the overall story and the journey are compellingly told.
