of Jess Franco's most outrageous films (and that's really sayin' somethin')
with a overwhelming mixture of perversion and savagery. This is the
ultra-rare, fully uncut X-Rated European version (103 Minutes). A Vietnam
veteran heads to Puerto Santo, an island inhabited by savages. He's
on a mission to save a kidnapped movie starlet, not only from the thugs
who captured her but also from a mutilated cannibal lurking on the island.
Fans of the genre will also recognize [and appreciate] the similarity
to Joe D'Amato's PORNO
HOLOCAUST which was made the same year.
film was directed by Jess Franco, under one of his more interesting
pseudonyms. With it, he pays tribute to one of his favorite jazz musicians,
trumpeter Clifford Brown. The assistant director on this film was Rosa
Maria Almiral who is actually his wife actress Lina Romay using her
birth name. This movie is one of three in Franco's 'cannibal trilogy'
CANNIBAL QUEEN and CANNIBAL
TERROR (all made in 1980). Ms Romay died from cancer at age
57 in February 2012; Jesús Franco died a year later from a stroke
in April 2013 at 82.

a vicious kidnapper named Chris. After a series of German TV movies,
he went to the big screen in 1967 and made 70+ films over the next 25
