Morons Seek Jungle Setting

"Slaves of the Cannibal God" (1978) is an indifferent entry in the "Stupid White People in the Jungle" genre. Ursula Andress, looking like the Bride of Wildenstein, and Stacy Keach star in this feeble tale of a woman supposedly looking for her lost brother in New Guinea, but really after uranium deposits.

Lots of stock animal footage. A heavily made up (and hosed down) Ursula, with concomitant safari-shirt gazongitation tease. Bad teeth. Ritual sacrifice of iguana, and subsequent rejoicing. Two quarts blood, some used as sauce. Flesh-eating. Cannibal dwarf. Bad dubbing. Croc horror.

Way too much plot getting away of the story, and minus one full star for not showing Ms. Andress' upper torso nekkid.

Two and a half coils

It's probably a good thing I didn't have a copy of that poster on my wall when I was a spotty-faced teenager, or I might have worn out my right hand. On the other hand (no pun intended) that would have justified replacing it with a cybernetic implact like Luke Skywalker, which would have been cool. There's a silver lining to every cloud...
