Storyline

When Cliff Hendricks went to the Amazon jungle, he never expected to find a woman like Janet. She was born in the jungle. On the surface it may seem as if she and Cliff have little in common, though before long they've married and started a family. Later, when he is rendered invalid by a rare African virus, she cares for her husband while doing her best to raise the couple's four children Luke, Matthew, Paul, and Rebecca. As the years go by, the mystery of the family only deepens; no one has seen Matthew since his twenty-first birthday, Cliff and Rebecca rarely leave the house, and Luke is the only sibling to strike out on his own. Upon returning home to celebrate Paul's twenty first birthday, Luke is disturbed to discover that his reclusive brother's only friends are some old marionettes he carved as a child, and that Janet is making due by selling tribal art on the internet. As Rebecca begins experimenting with her sexuality, her father's health takes a turn for the worse. When ... Written by lament

Interesting film that delivers the goods
14 September 2008 | by substancemediaSee all my reviews

Well, I think this film is pretty good viewing....lots of naked and hot women, tons of over-the-top gore, strange themes of incest and cannibalism...I think it warrants at least a rental and the upcoming Blu-Ray release has a lot of extras. The stars are all pretty well known - Ashlie Rhey from Playboy, Paul Logan from Days Of Our Lives, Scott Carson of MTV fame, Regina Russell, hottest woman in the world and directed by Mike Tristano, who has churned out some unusual but always watchable films. This one, is odd....at times you'll feel like you are watching something very artistic and then it flips you right around and you know that the main purpose here is to shock and titillate. It does give you the creeps however...you'll want to wash your hands at least once after watching this film.
