The film was banned in the UK until 2001 for its graphic violence (mostly for its very real animal violence) and one of the infamous 72 "Video Nasties". See more »
When the snake eats the monkey, it is supposed to be natural footage of one animal eating another. There are many leaves around the shot, and one of them is very clearly added during editing to hide a device to launch the monkey into the snake's mouth. (A frame by frame analysis of this is on the unrated Blue Underground DVD.) See more »
The title card reads "The Mountain of of the Cannibal God". See more »
The film was one of the original UK video nasties (as "Prisoner Of The Cannibal God") on the infamous DPP 72 list. The cinema version was cut to remove all footage of animal violence and the 2001 Vipco DVD (now retitled "Mountain Of The Cannibal God") featured a longer and more complete U.S print although a further 2 minutes 6 secs were cut by the BBFC to remove genuine footage of a snake fighting a bird and a snake killing and eating a live monkey.

This is your classic Saturday matinée movie, just done with more gore. It offers the best production values of any Italian cannibal movie, it has an all star cast, excellent production values, it really looks great. Or, to be more specific: It looked great: The DVD prints in circulation today are made from color faded Kodak Eastman prints. They are not made to last, so when I saw it in the cinema in 1979 it looked great and colorful. Still...if faded colors doesn't ruin your day, there is plenty to enjoy. Ursula Andress offers some of the best celeb-nudity caught on film. Being in her mid-forties, she still looks absolutely fantastic. My suggestion to you is to suspend your disbelief, find your best chair, lower the lights and press play to enjoy 8/10.
