Editorial Reviews

King Of EuroSleaze Jess Franco (BLOODY MOON, MACUMBA SEXUAL) takes on the `80s Cannibal genre and delivers a jungle sickie like no other! When a safari of sexy babes and violent boneheads ventures into native-crazed wilderness, Uncle Jess unleashes a deluge of relentless nudity, dubious anthropology and his own brand of cut-rate carnage. Ursula Fellner (SADOMANIA), Al Cliver (ZOMBIE), Robert Foster (CANNIBAL TERROR) and Gisela Hahn (CONTAMINATION) co-star in this original `Video Nasty --- also tastefully known as SEXO CANNIBAL and MANDINGO MANHUNTER---with something to offend everyone, now fully restored from the original Spanish negative and presented uncut and uncensored for the first time ever in America!

2.0 out of 5 stars Annoying cannibal sounds November 23, 2008
Format:DVD
What can I say about this Franco movie. It's a Franco movie. Don't expect much out of it except close up shots of pubic hair, not much, but enough. A very hot blond girl who is pretty much naked throughout the whole movie (only thing I realy liked about it) other than the final battle with bugged eyed cannibal man. That was fun. I realy hated and was annoyed with the sounds that came out of the cannibal. It was so bad everytime, very frequent, it happened I had to turn down the volume. Very bad use of fake blood. Looked like paint. Did I say the only thing good about this is the hot blond, there is another naked girl who you are introduced to later on in the movie that is very cute as well and looks great naked, and the final battle is entertaining. The bugged eyed cannibal sucks. Don't these people realize that if you want to fight off this cannibal dude, poke him in the eye. It's not like his bug eyes are small, they are big targets. Stupid acting, stupid gore, stupid use of sound effects. Stupid movie, but the girls are hot and naked alot.

I know my 5 star review isn't going to go well with a lot of people, but I keep watching this piece of trash and I'm still not bored of it. It's loaded with nudity, and the entire thing could be described as pure garbage. I like the cheap gore and jungle setting as well as the sleazy grindhouse feel. The music is also pretty awful, but it gives the film a fun crappy type feel to it. It should be noted that the film begins fast with gore and nudity, but then the pace slows up and there's some stuff that some people may find really boring, like people venturing around in the jungle. However, the pace picks up again later on, and then it really starts to dish out the exploitation stuff with lots of full frontal nudity and some cheap but fun gore FX. Sure, the gore FX are cheap and fake but that's the way a lot of fun grindhouse films are. The blonde girl, Ursula Buchfellner, is also really great looking. This is classic trash cinema, and I thought the DVD looks excellent considering it's so low budget; the color is a little faded and the contrast isn't fantastic, but this is a cheap and obscure film. Depending on your taste, you'll probably either love it or hate it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolutley awful March 2, 2009
Format:DVD
How this film got to be a "video nasty" in the UK I will never know...it's one of the most dire and dreary excuses for "entertainment" I have ever seen. The plot centres around the kidnapping of a glamorous actress, who is hauled off to some remote island while her captors send off their ransom demands. The actress's father (or whoever) dispatches two mercenaries to collect the girl. Arriving on the island they try to outwit the kidnappers and save the girl. This is all very boring, so to liven things up, the film gives us a tribe of natives who are minding their own business and sacrificing young maidens regularly to a hideous mutant person who like to attack his victims and eat their skin off. I'm sure you can guess the rest.

Even if that was an interesting plot, the film manages to bungle absolutely everything. If you've ever seen any European cannibal shockers from the 1980's before, you might be hoping for some gory thrills, but there's nothing like that here. Because this is a Jess Franco film, all the nudity is upped, and everything else is botched. All we have are cheap shoddy effects, dreadful acting and terrible dubbing. Here's a quick checklist of the crud you're going to have to put up with if you choose to sit through this:

1. A tribe of natives who look like a rounded up bunch of staff from the local bars, kitted out with with loincloths and pointy sticks. There isn't even a token nod to trying to assemble people with a similar ethnic background to make up this so called "lost tribe".
2. A prowling monster who turns out to be a tall black guy with two crusty ping bong balls stuck over his eyes. He also "eats" skin in a way you would only do while being filmed in close-up for shock effect...i.

This movie explores a new dimension of human sexuality: the call of the jungle. It is a combination of Tarzan and the call of the wild with full nudity and erotic adventure. There is some gore in the movie, virgin sacrifice and a mild cannibal scene but mostly is about showing the beauty of Ursula Buchfellner. The nude scenes with Ursula are quite creative and she is one of the most beautiful actresses I have seen. At the end things work for the good guys. I strongly recommend this movie for somebody who is exploring a different kind of cinema one that takes you out of the common and boring movies scenes we see now of urban sex and violence. I give this movie 5 stars for its creativity, originality and for Ursula.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Ride Into The Jungle With Jess! May 21, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I didnt give the review 5 stars because Franco isnt that kind of director. All in All this film is fun if your into low budget monster movies. I watched it a few times and it gets better with each viewing. I would say this is one of franco's better films and would buy it again and again.

Pros
+Interesting Story
+Gory
+Nudity
+Nice Extras on Dvd

Cons
-Film looks old, transfer could have been better.

Not a whole lot to really say about the film other than a fun ride.

Silly story of a kidnapped Euro-babe and a wandering, bug-eyed mutant cannibal. As with most Franco films, there is little or no tension, poor f/x and a lot of female skin. Read more
