A university professor goes to the Amazon to look for a group of documentarians. When he returns, he brings with him the footage of theirs about the local cannibalistic tribes.
Boring. How the hell is this “the most controversial movie ever made? I’ve seen Rugrats episodes that are more controversial. All this had going for it was the fact that it had a bunch of fully nude people, both men and women. There were some parts where I felt like I was watching cheap, old porn. Then even if I ignore the hair, these chick’s have such tiny boobs, it’s almost hard to tell if they are women. As for the story line, it’s so damn common place even Disney has a few movies with the same theme. One group of people decides another group are savages so act like savages themselves. Theres barely even any cannibalism. Everything that happened to those white people, they deserved. And more. They were horrible and if it was up to me, cooked alive. Or eaten alive. Whichever.
I’ve never been a big fan of found footage stuff. But at least they can usually hold my attention I almost started to read while watching this. I considered just dropping it, but I kept hoping that maybe something funny would happen. It never did. Unless you think a guy getting his dick cut off (deservedly so) is funny. Or women getting raped is funny. Or people being burned alive to make a quick buck is funny
