Description by OLDIES.com:
Robert Harper was an average entrepreneur with a comfortable life, until his plane crashed near an isolated development in New Guinea. When a cruel twist of fate separates him from his companion Rolf, Robert finds himself stranded alone in the jungle. He discovers a native civilization hidden there, but they are a cruel tribe of cannibals with only malicious intentions. Tortured and humiliated, Robert is taken to the edge of his sanity by a series of acts so horrible that they are practically beyond human comprehension. Only the fact that one of the cannibal women sympathizes with him gives Robert enough strength to plan a desperate escape.
Ruggero Deodato directed this cannibal movie just before his classic CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST, the acme of the popular Italian cannibal subgenre of horror films and generally considered the most disgusting and vile movie ever made. Massimo Foschi and Ivan Rassimov star as Robert and Rolf, two scientists working for an oil company who lead an expedition to an island near South America. Soon after arriving, things begin to go awry, as they gradually begin to realize that they are trapped in the jungle with an ancient cannibalistic tribe. When two members of the team are captured, along with the entire advance team, Robert and Rolf must find a way to infiltrate the cannibals' camp and free their soon to be eaten friends.
Though JUNGLE HOLOCAUST does not have the amount of gore that gave CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST its notoriety, it is considered by many to be a superior film. Like its successor, it features a host of gruesome, inventive, and sickeningly realistic cannibal sequences, as well as laughable dialogue, gratuitous nudity, and a potent sense of dread, making it a cult favorite and an incredibly shocking experience.
