This is the first of two movies that adopted the alternate title of Cannibal Holocaust 2, in hopes of boosting the movie's popularity by associating it with the more notorious Cannibal Holocaust (1980). See more »
Mario Gariazzo's "Amazonia:The Katherine Miles Story"(1986)is an Italian exploitation film set in the Amazon.Supposedly based on a true story it has plenty of gore,but no actual cannibalism.Elvire Audray plays an 18 years old girl abducted by native tribe and she is pretty terrible actress.Fortunately she is naked through most of the film,so fans of sleaze won't be disappointed.The gore is pretty good(there are numerous decapitation scenes,stabbings etc.)and the film has an obligatory animal cruelty scene.So if you're a fan of Italian exploitation cinema or cannibal sub-genre give this one a look-just don't expect another "Cannibal Holocaust"(1979).
