Performers, Cast and Crew:
DIAMONDS OF KILIMANJARO: Ultra-prolific cult director Jess Franco lends his particular talent for exploitative strangeness to the jungle adventure DIAMONDS OF KILIMANJARO. Katja Bienert stars as Diana, whose plane crashed deep in the African wilderness when she was a child. In the intervening years, she has been worshipped as a white goddess by the cannibals there. Meanwhile, her mother has finally gathered an expeditionary force to travel into the jungle and find her, but during their search they encounter many dangers, not the least of which is the cannibal tribe eager to keep its goddess for themselves. DIAMONDS OF KILIMANJARO features the nudity and lack of political correctness that have made Franco's films famous.
GOLDEN TEMPLE AMAZONS: Astonishingly prolific (with over 150 titles to his name) Spanish exploitation filmmaker Jess Franco co-directs GOLDEN TEMPLE AMAZONS. The film stars Alice Arno and Lina Romay, two of the oft-naked actresses who were part of Franco's stable of actors in the 1970s. A group of cruel Amazons lurks deep in the jungle, discovered by a family of explorers. Fearful that the explorers might tell the world of their great wealth, the Amazons murder the older explorers but spare their daughter, Liana, whom they raise as one of their own. But when Liana grows up and discovers her parentage, she decides to take bloody revenge on the leaders of the Amazon tribe. Franco's trademark sex and violence is amply displayed in his rarely seen GOLDEN TEMPLE AMAZONS.
Also included in the collection is the steamy, sultry screamer AMAZONIA.
