Slave of the Cannibal God
Susan Stevenson (Ursula Andress) and her brother, Arthur (Antonio Marsina), travel to New Guinea in the hopes of finding her husband, who has gone missing for three months. The pair encounter anthropologist Dr. Edward Foster (Stacy Keach), who agrees to lead a jungle expedition in search of the missing man. As mantraps and other jungle dangers slowly whittle away the search party, Foster becomes convinced that Susan's husband is somewhere on the tiny coastal island of Roka, home to the sacred island of Ra Ra Me. En route to the mountain, the party is captured by the Puka, a Stone Age tribe long considered extinct. Foster reveals that the tribe is cannibalistic, having been captured and forced to consume human flesh years before. This gruesome news, however, pales before Susan's discovery of her husband's fate -- a fate that will surely befall the entire party if they are unable to escape. ~ Paul Gaita, Rovi

    Mediocre Cannibal Movie


    To start off yes, this movie is not close to as good as some of the other great cannibal movies (ex. Cannibal Holocaust or Cannibal Ferox) but it did influence most of them. It follows a expedition in the jungle looking for another lost crew, while they're taking a trek through the jungle one by one the crew is picked off till only two remain in the Pookah tribe's grotto. This movie, even though at times it is, is not very gory. It's kinda slow and just not really a fun cannibal movie. The extras on it are kind of skimpy, all we get is an interview with the director, the standard trailer, and a still gallery. I can only recomend this movie to hardcore cannibal fans.

    Not really much of a cannibal movie

    There are far better cannibal movies out there. This is really just an o.k. B MOVIE. The first half of the movie is slow it only picks up near the end. Really not much to offer the viewer here.

    The uncut Now we know why they cut certain things out. Movie is good for its time. Good for definitely, at least, one viewing.

    Good cannibal action


    Old but decent cannibal movie. This is nowhere near as good as cannibal holocaust or cannibal ferrox, but still a good time.
