“The NIGHTCRAWLER of CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST ripoffs, as if directed by Tommy Wiseau. Fun for the whole family!”
-- Alan Dorich, Letterboxd
After the “golden age of Italian exploitation” concluded at the end of the ‘80s -- no one told goremeister Bruno Mattei (HELL OF THE LIVING DEAD, RATS: NIGHT OF TERROR) to stop making ‘80s Italian exploitation movies! In the 2000s, Mattei produced nearly a dozen exploitationers with the same verve and whackadoo style that were hallmarks of his work in the classic period. This shit is a blast, y’all.
Here, Mattei (under the name ‘Vincent Dawn’) unleashes the sleazy saga of a ratings-hungry American TV crew whose Amazon jungle report becomes a nightmare of gut munching, brain-scarfing, sexual atrocities and insane moralizing.
