Dr. Mengele was a genius, but I have surpassed him.

Paul Naschy is a werewolf in this film, although he is not Waldemar Daninsky, but Dr. Moreau.

The best reason to see this film may be Danielle Winits in the shower before she is interrupted by her friend Samantha (Karina Bacchi). Or the Amazon Queen (Joana Medeiros).

A group of tourists are in the Amazon looking for hallucinogenic tea. They will be fodder for the werewolf. I nominate Raul (Bruno de Lucca) to be the first. He is a real jerk!

Corny dialog and bizarre happenings are dotted throughout, especially by Prof. Scott Corman (Nuno Leal Maia) and the police inspector (Tony Tornado).

I am not familiar with Brazilian director Ivan Cardoso, but I will have to check out some of his other work after this.
