Accompanied by her brother Arthur (Antonio Marsina) and her husband’s friend Dr Edward Foster (Stacey Keach), Susan heads towards Mount Rarami, the last confirmed location her husband visited. There they learn about the terrible curses which have rendered the mountain taboo and begin to suspect that it might have something to do with the anthropologist’s disappearance.

Summary Review: Very tasty little snack

Another 70’s cannibal flick that is much better than expected.

You’ve got the hot, scantily-clad Ursula Andress and her crew on a quest through the jungles of New Guinea. They get ambushed by some blood thirsty savages of course. This tribe looks extremely heinous. Their masks are what really stood out for me in this movie. Freaky! When the maniacal tribe leader sees Ursula, he might develop a different kind of hunger.

You’ve got all your basic cannibal flick essentials–blood, gore, decapitations, nudity, violence with animals. The acting and dialogue are good enough not to hamper the story. It may not be extremely original, but hey, if it ain’t broke…
