Synopsis Anthropologists take a trip to the jungles of Colombia to study native cannibals. To sum up, a crusty gore flick with limited appeal. There is arescue attempt near the end that looks like joining the two stemstogether, but nothing comes of it. . LorraineDe Selle is great, trying to take the whole thing seriously whileGiovanni Lombardo Radice chews the scenery around her with leering,bog-eyed abandon. Multiple cocks are hacked off and one is eaten - yummy , a woman is lifted into the air with fish-hooks through the breasts, there is an eye-gouging, and of course, nocannibal film would be complete without a bit of the ol' brain eating. .
The white man tortures primative natives and they seek revenge by torture and cannibalism. They meet up with this tribe who are out for brutal revenge. It's really silly, poorly acted and reallycheesey in parts. Instead, they find a band of drug dealers, using the natives to harvest coca leaves. Their bad luck continues when they run into two men, Mike and Joe also from the Big Apple , who claim to have been attacked by cannibals, but in reality have been doing a little torturing and killing of their own; after failing to find emeralds in the river, they have taken out their frustration on the helpless locals in the nearby village the younger, stronger members are away fishing! In un villaggio abbandonato trovano un cadavere che anziché di un portoghese torturato e ucciso dagli indios risulta essere un indio che Mike ha così ridotto per derubarlo di alcuni smeraldi. I want my money back. If you are interested in a cheesy horror flick try Killer Klowns From Outer Space, at least that film is worth a good laugh.
A New York student travels to the Amazon with her brother and a blonde nympho, hoping to prove that cannibalism is nothing but a myth created as an excuse to wipe out indigenous tribes. I accept that the censor has something to do with this but come on surley they haven't cut everything out! But it does have a hefty bucket load of blood to keepgorehounds like my good self happy. Onthe few occasions in which people actively kill animals, they do soquickly and efficiently, and there's no sense that the animals aresuffering, or no more than they would in the average abattoir. Any atmosphere the movie built up during the jungle scenes was killed when it would cut to new york. I guesshecouldn't resist showing off his ability to shoot action scenes. Why the action keepsshifting back to New York is anyone's guess. Rudy and Gloria feel that theyare in danger but there is no place to hide from the young cannibalsthat are returning to their hamlet.
Well anyway, the real torture victim was me, who had to sit throughthis. Theyboasted exotic locations, horrific gore, real animal killings, and thethreat of the unknown in the primitive tribes. It is not the most violent film ever but it works well and surpasses any current film in shock value. The police detectives seek out the touristic guide MyrnaStenn Meg Fleming , who shared her apartment with Mike. I use the term director loosley because i cant possibly imagine anyone could have actually directed this garbage and considered it good. Penis whacking, hand chopping, head lopping, gut munching, breast piercing, eye gouging, brain slurping: its all there, along with some unnecessary animal cruelty for good measure. It'sinteresting that when animals are butchered for your viewing pleasurein Italian exploitation movies it's banned in a dozen countries, butwhen Coppola does it far less humanely in Apocalypse Now, it's art.
I expected absolutely nothing from this movie, other than completelyamateurish nonsense in the vein of an updated Hershell Gordon Lewis. Since Everything is shown to you there is nothing left to the imagination. It's gory but the violence is just too much to the point where it looks extremely fake and predictable. Just a pity they spent such a lot of money making these films. There are several instances of real animal killings a turtle,analligator, a pig, and almost a mongoose , castration, decapitation,mutilation, humiliation, a piranha attack, and poison darts. An anthropologist takes two of her friends on an expedition to prove that cannibalism does not exist.
Synopsis Anthropologists take a trip to the jungles of Colombia to study native cannibals. It tells the story of why Mike Logan and Joe the drugdealers escaped to the Amazon. I always found myself defending Cannibal Holocaust for the animalcruelty, as that is a genuinely good film, and the horrific animalscenes really do add to the horrible and deeply unsettling atmosphere. Anthropologists take a trip to the jungles of Colombia to study native cannibals. Joe explains itduring his story, so why shoot 20 minutes of new footage with a totallydifferent cast? Oltrepassando insidie, cadaveri e terrori, incontrano due giovani americani, Mike e Joe, questi ferito e in preda al panico, che dicono di essere sfuggiti ai cannibali. After awhile, the natives are tired of being tortured slaves, and turn on their masters, as well as the anthropologists, thus filling the screen with gruesome splatter! Director Umberto Lenzi does a wonderful job with thejunglefootage, some of his best work, and had also done cop thrillers.
It seems to be there only to add afew more minutes onto the running time, allowing the film to renderitself a feature. This movie doesn't do anything. Also the death and torture of Morghan provided a decent bit of irony but it was overshadowed by the cheesiness of the rest of the film. Umberto Lenzi should be regarded as king of Italian trash cinema. We would be very grateful. Avoid this one like the plague. Please pay attention that we are not responsible for the authenticity and legality of the torrent.
Overall this movie bites and should be avoided at all costs. The storyline, acting and production values were as solid as youcould expect from such a multi-lingual low budget exploitation flick,especially considering the amount of outdoor location shooting, andGrindhouse have done a really good job with the remastering. When the rest of the tribe return, they take revenge, capturing and killing the helpless Americans in gruesome and inventive ways. Instead, they find a band of drug dealers, using the natives to harvest coca leaves. Itis both beautifully composed and effectively filled with dread. Well this film may have been the worst I have ever wasted time watching. I can see why now they didn't want for years to put you through 1hr and 30 mins of total rubbish.
The plot is rather simple: a drug dealer and his co-hort torture and killsome natives in the Amazon jungle and escape, but after encountering acollege group, they are captured and brutalized for the cruelties theyhavecaused. The rest are just stupid nonsense! Themuch criticized animal cruelty really isn't as bad as everyone tries tomake out usually consisting of little more than Discovery Channelstyle documentary footage of animals chasing and killing each other. The most dissapointing film ever. . I consider myself a horror buff and enjoy seeing all types of horror films including those that are not necessarily the upper echelon of film making.
On their way to a remote village, their jeep becomes stuck in mud, so they travel on foot. Here, they just distract from the jungleaction and almost ruin what could have been a classic film. Joe muore per setticemia, e gli altri vengono torturati e uccisi meno Gloria che, allo stremo, verrà salvata. But keep your eyes out for the highlights;theunfortunate John Morghen, who has his manhood sliced clean off and eaten byone of the Cannibals. A fan of 70's gore should give this a try, but anyone with modern ethics and tastes should pick something a little better written for their popcorn-fest. After awhile, the natives are tired of being tortured slaves, and turn on their masters, as well as the anthropologists, thus filling the screen with gruesome splatter! As thepolice begin their investigation into the shooting, the actionrelocates to the Paraguayan jungle, where two students, Gloria Lorraine De Selle and Rudy Danilo Mattei , and one tag-along Pat Zora Kerova are making their way into the heart of the jungle lookingfor native tribes who have been accused of cannibalism.
