An English photographer gets stuck in the jungle between Burma and Thailand when his guide disappears. Suddenly he’s surrounded and captured by a tribe of savages. He’s living with them in slavery, slowly gaining their respect and the love of the beautiful daughter of the leader. But danger is lurking around every corner.

This is the flick that started the cannibal-movie boom in Italy in the 70’s. It’s a nicely shot love drama with huge amount of animal killings, cannibal munching and tongue cuttings. But behind the nastiness it’s a well made movie with a gripping story. Had a good B-time!
