I bought it for very cheap. Plus, it had Ursula Andress in it. From the famous Bond flick "Dr. No". I was a fan of hers from the first time I saw that movie. Heard somewhere she gets naked in it. So screw the expected weak plot and poor acting. Seeing UA naked was worth I think The $6.00 I paid for this DVD. Thing is...while you could see UA had aged she looked great naked for a 42 year old woman. This IS why guys buy this DVD...ADMIT IT!! :) Interestingly enough...in the one long nude scene when she's being prepared by 2 native girls who tie her wrists above her head..she looked just like Bo Derek. Built exactly like Bo. How John Derek did it I have no idea. Finds women that look almost like identical sisters (Ursula Andress, Linda Evans, Bo Derek). Magic. You'd swear the 3 women had the same parents.

I always thought UA was Italian don't know why. She's Swiss. Maybe it's because she looks Italian (to me). Is in a lot of Italian films, Italian "partner" she's been living with.

Better Cannibal films...hard to find...but there is one that's been banned in many countries called Cannibal Holocaust. Trick is to find the least "butchered" version.

By THE MOVIE GUY HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on April 10 2015
Format: DVD
This was a fairly lame cannibal exploitation film. Susan (Ursula Andress) and her obnoxious brother head off to an island of New Guinea to search for her missing husband. Stacy Keach and stock animal footage are employed along the way. The government doesn't allow expeditions in this area. They take a helicopter to a mountain, then walk to a beach (a nice wide one where a helicopter could land) then take a boat to an island. Plot continuity was not part of the plan. The plan was to get Ursala Andress stripped naked, tied up and greased down similar to what Bo Derek would later do in "Tarzan". We now know John Derek's fetish. Bo er ah Ursala doesn't encounter the cannibals until the last 20 minutes of the film.

In the 1970's this was great stuff. By today's standard it is really ho-hum. A few animals may have been killed for this film. There are better Ursala Andress films out there.

Jungle Exploration: A Cannibalistic Meat-N-Greet Nov. 30 2002
By TorridlyBoredShopper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Slave of the Cannibal God, a movie that I avoided for some unknown reason for quite a long time until picking it up in a movie four-pack (and then unedited) recently, was actually something of an entertainingly gruesome trek into the depths of South American jungle (especially in its strangely uncut version), dealing with not only cannibalism but also with cultural reasons as to why a person should never kill a spider around a native on a full stomach. Although I've yet to see a format of this movie that I would call beautiful, this one isn't that bad, drifting somewhere between a stored VHS tape and an older format DVD.
The movie itself revolves around the dubiously enchanting Susan Stevenson (Ursula Andress) and her strangely Germanic brother Arthur as they head for South America in search of her long lost, and presumably deceased, explorer/husband. Once there, they find the local police of little help and are instead prompted to enlist the help of the, in the words of one local official, "weird Dr. Edward Foster." After finding and speaking with him a bit - discovering that he and Arthur have a shady past together and that he does seem to have some higher brain-function disorder- he tells them that that Susan's husband had possibly not gone into the jungle itself but had instead headed to a little island which, roughly translated, houses The Mountain of the Cannibal God. He further tells them that this place is off limits because its believed to be cursed and that strange happenings do indeed go on there, some of which he knows a little too much about. Why her husband would go there, he cannot answer, but with a pout of the lips and a bit of sweet talk by a receptive wife, he's off to find the good doctor.
As any good jungle exploration movie would have it, he enlists the help of some locals along the way, all of which are obviously disposable, and all of whom provide some seriously bloody bait for the eyes to digest. Between traps that kill in some not-so-nice manners, cannibals that like to play with spears and knives before grabiing a meal and going, and the atypical fleeing that all smart natives do when the going gets though, we run through them rather quickly. Still, this problem is short-lived as our little group of miscreants finds themselves a fresh supply of innocents (at a mission, of all the places) to have butchered, and even pick up another explorer - with the help of a now sexually active, utterly receptive wife - to help them along their way. Then comes the real guessing game, the one that pits questionslike: what's actually going on, what motives lie hidden in these obviously convoluted minds, how bloody can the movie get before these fools turn back, how often will clothes find themselves discarded in a place filled with so many poisonous entities, and why the wife and her brother be carrying a Geiger counter? Yes, its a thrilling answer as to why one should stay home and only dream about jungle exploration.

What a Stinker ! Sept. 17 2004
By Hapa haole - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This movie is awful.

Sound quality wasn't very good, video quality was mediocre to poor, the story line was garbage, the characters were pathetic or disgusting, the acting was so sad.

This movie is one of the lamest I've seen in my life. It wasn't worth the time I spent watching it. I regret paying $2 for this turkey. Now, I can't sell it 'cause I don't want to screw the next person.

Ursula looks pretty good, and one scene where she's tied up while two girls rub her down with oil was erotic, but it sure didn't make up for the rest of this clunker.

Go find something else to spend your money on.

"You Don't Forget The Taste Of Human Flesh!" Oct. 13 2008
By Robert I. Hedges - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This Italian stinker is a wretched film despite the presence of the talented Stacy Keach as Professor Edward Foster, and the obvious assets of Ursula Andress as Susan Stevenson. The gist of the plot is that money-hungry Stevenson and her annoying brother hire Foster to help them find Stevenson's husband on a tropical island in New Guinea, which is the home to vicious cannibals, the Pukas. The rest of the film features lots of footage of scary things: alligators, cobras, tarantulas, cannibals, even a medicinal worm application in a highly unorthodox first aid setting. The expedition shapes up to be Foster, Stevenson and annoying brother, a bunch of natives, and Claudio Cassinelli as Manolo, the love interest for Stevenson.

The expedition does not start well when Foster kills a spider with a machete, spooking the natives. There is a whole lot of footage of the group walking around in the jungle, canoeing, and general unpleasantness in a hot, steamy jungle. Foster provides a lot of backstory about how he was once kidnapped by the Pukas, but they didn't eat him because he cured the chief's son of a disease. Foster clashes with the Stevenson party because he is an idealist (as is Manolo), while they just want the mineral rights to the island. Because of this conflict, they let Foster slide down an waterfall to his death, a turn of events (and the only one) that actually surprised me. Keach deserves an award for delivering his commands to tribesmen in a "native language" of some sort professionally and without laughing; the rest of the actors have accents so thick as to make ordinary interactions virtually indecipherable.

The party gets attacked by natives, and Ursula shows them a photo of her husband. They make her the new queen (you won't believe her outfit), as they have killed her husband and implanted his Geiger counter in his sternum and now worship him as a false god. There is a lot of chanting and dancing, some ritual disemboweling and cannibalism, and a budding relationship between Stevenson and Manolo as they make their escape from the cannibal isle. Watch especially for the annoying cannibal dwarf.

If I have made this seem fairly interesting or exciting, I apologize, because it isn't. Large swaths of the film are mere padding, the constant electronic music is extremely grating, the script is woeful, and the acting (except by Keach) is pitifully amateurish. The credits are long and undistinguished (you will be unsurprised to discover that the interiors were filmed in Rome), and despite the intrinsically titillating title, the only emotion possible at its conclusion is one of relief.

OK Italian Cannibal feast March 25 1999
By Michael A. Martinez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
Sergio Martino always delivers with his films. From the fast-paced action in After the Fall of New York to the mystery and shocking horror in Screamers. This film is no exception. It blends right in with Trap Them and Kill Them and Cannibal Ferox, yet another cheap but watchable Italian cannibal film. Lots of cheap gore, animal cruelty, and native exploitation, the usual fare. Aside from the awesome cast (Claudio Cassinelli, Ursula Andress, Antonio Marsina, and even STACEY KEACH!) this film has little to distinguish itself from the crop. I'd see Cannibal Holocaust instead. Keach's final scene is kinda funny in a way though, as is the ending which was completely ripped off by John Boorman's The Emerald Forest. If you've seen the cannibal "classics" such as Holocaust and Ferox, go ahead and give this one a whirl. It wont disappoint you, but wont really excite you either.
