Goofs

When the drug lord is first seen, several "prisoners" are executed by hanging. They are clearly wearing harnesses under their clothing that suspend them from the rope when the stones are kicked out from under their feet. See more »

Quotes

Mercenary: [talking to python] My lovely little snake! You slippery little thing. I wish I could have a pair of fangs like yours. Your belly's like a glob of spit to the touch, you slimy, wretched, oversized eel! Mm, I love ya! Come here and give me another kiss with those big fangs. Ha ha ha ha!

What if Herschell Gordon Lewis directed an Asian war film?
4 September 2002 | by Eegah GuySee all my reviews

Was APOCALYPSE NOW or THE DEER HUNTER a big hit in Thailand? Add some really bad English dubbing and lots of kung-fu movie sound effects and you've got this adventure-horror hybrid. It's a horrors-of-war exploitation film that takes the violence inherent in warfare to absurd extremes. Besides the usual bullet hits and sharp-spiked jungle booby traps you get limb chopping, decapitation, penis stabbing, eye gouging and a spike to the head followed by brain eating (hence the title). One hungry guy even eats the maggots off of a decomposing corpse! Blood flows and spurts to such ridiculous lengths that it's hard not to laugh at the cartoonish brutality on view here. The video box says: SO REALISTIC -- THIS FILM MAKES "PLATOON" LOOK LIKE A FAMILY OUTING! I can't argue with hype like that!
