fertility drugs like clomid On sale now from Shameless Entertainment, directed by Sergio Martino.
Ursula Andress (Bond Dr No, 10th Victim, The Nurse) travels to the New Guinea jungle in search of her scientist husband who s vanished in the untamed Green Inferno. Soon, giant spiders, killer crocs and deadly snakes bare their teeth as her expedition, lead by cult-fave Stacey Keach, journeys towards the sacred mountain of the Cannibal God! There a flesh-eating demon will enslave her in an eruption of frenzied orgiastic climax… and full porky bestiality!
Shameless pull another cult classic from out of the vault with this very welcome Blu-ray of Mountain of the Cannibal God.
Known at times as either Prisoner or Slave of the Cannibal God, this was for a time banned in the UK (then again, during that video nasty hysteria anything with ‘cannibal’ in the title seemed to be banned). All these decades later it seems rather tame compared to some of the horror flicks of the 21st Century, but for a certain generation Cannibal God will still hold a certain fascination. It might be to do with the stigma attached to the feature or Ursula Andress getting her kit off and having mud smothered on her breasts.
A Bond Girl in a Video Nasty? Oh yes, she is here and director Martino has no problem exploiting her world famous looks. As an actress her performance isn’t outstanding but then again it didn’t have to be. Stacy Keach and Claudio Cassinelli make up for this, being rugged bastards and all round good actors here.
The gore and actual animal cruelty are other aspects of Cannibal God that earned it the ban once imposed on it in the UK as well as the cuts that plighted it when said ban was lifted. Shameless have put more gore in but took some of the animal cruelty out (which is admirable of them). They do ‘kindly’ leave in footage of a large boar being bum loved by a cannibal. Great.
The HD is understandably the best this has looked, despite the colours being a little muted. For those who want to know, the ‘mud rubbing scene’ starts at 1:20:44 (wink, wink).
Pick of the Extras.
Cannibal Nightmare (46 mins) – This is an old documentary that is essentially an interview with the director who reveals he got inspiration from Cannibal Holocaust and The Snows of Kilimanjaro, talks about filming in Malaysia and the problems in doing so, snakes and the cast, the monkey vs python scene and how it was “unpleasant to watch” (yet he staged it to happen) and more.
Sergio on Animal Cruelty (2 mins) – Martino gets a few things off of his chest in relation to the monkey death scene. He says the animal handler told him the monkey wouldn’t be hurt, it still plays on his mind and that he’s sorry it ever happened.
