A blatant rip-off of Cannibal Holocaust; a bunch of white – no gooders cause havok in a village in the amazon of a tribe. There’s plenty of violence against animals in this film which was bothersome but is no surprise as we’ve seen before in this genre. Film makers today would not be able to get away with that nonsense.
Some of the gore was top notch. The gut munching, and nipple – hook – piercings were pretty top shelf as far as gore is concerned, as well as a couple of instances of penile castration for that proverbial cherry on top.
Umberto Lenzi did a good job copying the much better controversial masterpiece – Cannibal Holocaust, but Cannibal Ferox lacked the same amount of punch and originality.
I enjoyed the soundtrack and would love listening to it while riding a shitty boat across the amazon waters.
A memorable highlight for me is definitely the funny cop who’s great at summarizing what was “telefaxed” to him. Had to rewind that part a few times for laugh out loud craziness.
