A very strange movie,but exciting, and Different!!!!
12 October 1998 | by JRobertSee all my reviews

The press-book announced that " people died during the dangerous filming of this movie in the jungles of Brazil.." including ..monsters in the mysterious murky waters filled with man-eating beasts...t.he stars had their hands full of a giant and real snake, as that monster wraps around them to squeeze them to death,(and in reality almost did, during filming) and wild natives on the rampage indeed strike terror into the hearts and souls of all viewers. To me, it was a "sleeper" and a surprise adventure. Not popular when released it was usually found on a double-feature at a neighborhood theatre...try and find it on VHS,( if you can)..a movie, you will not soon forget,.. especially, the youthful grinning native in a leading role!!!!!
