Slave Of The Cannibal God


SLAVE OF THE CANNIBAL GOD—–or, if you prefer, The Mountain Of The Cannibal God as it was known in Europe, or Prisoner Of The Cannibal God as it steamed into the U.K. Made by Italians, starring Ursula Andress and Stacy Keach (people need paychecks), from 1978 (due to its violence, the Brits banned it until 2001).  Stupid, tedious and quite yucky, with needless scenes of animal cruelty and one bit of a ‘native’ (cannibal) having carnal knowledge with a large wild pig.  But wait, why would anyone watch this in the first place? Rumor has it that it’s for the scene where a naked Ursula is tied up and smeared with honey by naked cannibal maidens.

A woman and her brother search the jungles of New Guinea, looking for her missing anthropologist husband.  Director Sergio Martino bore a list of credits that include Torso, Island Of The Fishmen and my personal favorite Your Vice Is A Locked Room And Only I Have The Key.  I haven’t seen those three, but then they don’t have a scene where Ursula Andress is naked, tied up and smeared with honey by naked cannibal girls, so what would be the point?  99 minutes/102 minutes/sundry other cuts, with Claudio Cassinelli. Despite the lying poster art, it was filmed in Sri Lanka.


Now, we will get paid for this, right?
