The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

The Man From Deep River (1972)

AKA: Sacrifice! / Il Paese del Sesso Selvaggio

Starring: Ivan Rassimov, Me Me Lai
Director: Umberto Lenzi

A photographer on assignment in Bangkok accidentally kills a man and flees the city. His plane crashes in the jungle where a tribe takes him in. He marries the Cheif's daughter and helps the tribe fight out another tribe of cannibals.

My Take:
As far as the Italian cannibals film at the era, this one is quite tame. In fact, it's mostly about this man adjusting to tribal ways and falling for the girl. The threat of the other tribe doesn't come until the end of the movie. Depends on what the viewer is wanting to see, but if it's gore then search elsewhere.
