The second film of Deodato's "cannibal trilogy".

The movie was "banned" in over 50 countries.

Ten days after the film was released, Ruggero Deodato was arrested for "obscenity" and was later charged with murder and faced life in prison because the authorities belived that the actors were really murdered on camera.  The charges were dropped when the actors appeared in front of court.  Deodato's charges were dismissed but the film was banned in Italy for 3 years.

Call me crazy if you must but I love the mondo-canibale genre & will buy any film made by Lenzi or Deodato which exploits cannibalism. This, by far, may be one of the most difficult ones for me to stomach however as it's very disturbing. Needless to say, it rocks!       Unlike other cannibal films in this genre, this one actually forces us to question who the real cannibals are.
