Storyline

Doctor Taylor, his wife Elizabeth and their teenage daughter Lana go to an isolated hospital in the Brazilean jungle, close to the Amazon river; they are attacked by savages and he sees them kill and eat his wife, and abduct the girl. Taylor manages to get back to civilization, but he needs psychiatric help; only Doctor Ana believes his story about cannibals, and takes the risk of going with him and a few rich people who can pay for a safari in the remote jungle. The cannibals decimate a number of the safari members in a succession of attacks, and only Taylor, the sexy lady doctor, and a photograph, rich the cannibal tribe - only to discover that she is now the wife of the tribe leader, and considered a goddess. The tribe has adopted her as a white goddess. Written by Artemis-9

Quotes

Jeremy Taylor: Are you Mr Martin?
Mr. Martin: That's me.
Jeremy Taylor: May we sit with you?
Mr. Martin: It's a public place.
Jeremy Taylor: I'm told that you know the Malavi region very well; better than you know the palm of your own hand.
Mr. Martin: No. Leave the palms of my hands out of it. It'd be impossible to know that region in depth.
Ana: Who would know it, then?
Mr. Martin: Only the Gaevis know it well.
Ana: That's just who we're looking for.
Mr. Martin: The Gaevis? Well, in that case, you people better look for somebody else around here.

Schlocky Franco.
6 August 2017 | by MonsterVision99See all my reviews

Jess Franco's Cannibals, A.K.A White Cannibal Queen, it's probably one of the cheesiest Franco films, and most of it doesn't have much to do with the movie itself but with its dubbing. The dubbing is laughable, sounds more like a parody, but maybe it only bothers me, I have never liked the English dubbing in films (but sometimes its the only way to watch these low budget exploitation films).

Most of its elements are what you would see in an average Cannibal film from this era, but Jess Franco gives this movie it's own feeling, it looks like hes trying to save it, I am sure he knows just how crappy the movie is, so he chooses to make it a parody of other cannibal films.

I found it very enjoyable, it has the usual Franco stuff that I like, but it's also quite campy and funny, this is my kind of schlock. I may enjoy this more with a Spanish dubbing, I really want to get that version.
