Did You Know?

Trivia

Ruggero Deodato has said in several occasions that real animal deaths sequences were archive footage added by the producer after the filming, during the editing process. This is not completely true. Some of them are actually archive footage, but other (like the crocodile killing) were filmed for the movie. See more »

Goofs

The snake that is milked onto the spearhead is clearly from the cobra family. The men claim that this venom will kill in seconds but in actuality the average death from cobra venom can take place up to thirty minutes later. See more »

Alternate Versions

There exist two video versions in Sweden; one is uncut, the other heavily cut. The uncut version (titled "Jakten i regnskogen" on Golden Medal Video) is in full screen. The cut version (titled "De sista kannibalerna" on Europafilm) runs 77m 35sec PAL and is widescreen and has superior picture quality. See more »

Thank God it wasn't in 3-D!!
13 November 2000 | by zmaturinSee all my reviews

A plane full of annoying oil hunters crash their plane deep in a jungle and almost immediately the non-Caucasian members of the expedition are caught and devoured by a band of revolting cannibal natives, leaving the smart, sensible survivalist Ralph stranded with the weenie, whiny, panicky dolt Robert, who gets them completely lost within minutes. They manage to construct a remarkably sturdy raft that is almost instantly crashed into some rocks. The duo is separated and Robert eats some mushrooms that make him vomit, and then he is captured by the always-naked, mostly male cannibal tribe. They tie him up, rip off his clothes, and tug at his genitals. There is more male frontal nudity in this than at a pool party at James Whale's house.

There is, of course, one beautiful female native with no body hair and breast implants who falls for Robert- although not until after he ties her up, leads her around on a leash like a dog, and beats the snot out of her. This is a pretty detestable movie.

The print I watched was called "Last Cannibal World" and it seemed to have all the good bits (the gore and sex, that is) cut out. The tons of cruelty-to-animals (not as much fun as cruelty-to-humans) and the offensive male-female relationship result in a non-extraordinary cannibal movie devoid of any likability. I was never bored, though, and there are lots of scenes of that pathetic blockhead Robert getting humiliated. He's peed on, gets rotten vegetables thrown on him, and it tied up and swung around on a rope because they think he's a bird. And, according to some text at the beginning of the flick, it's all true!
