An American woman and her male companion investigate rumors of a monster in the Amazon rain forest.
This film is so bad it is good. Beverly Garland is the only recognizable actor and she is good - but she should have asked the studio to burn all the prints. The script makes little sense, the special effects such as they are are hokey and what little action occurs is not even interesting. I did note, however, that John Bromfield spent a significant amount of time in the film swinging a machete, hacking his way into and then back out of the Amazon rain forest - if you watch closely you will see that when he is moving deeper into the rain forest he is hacking right to left with the machete and when he is retreating out of the forest he chops left to right - so the audience wouldn't be confused. I recommend the film for late night viewing when nothing else is on except infomercials - and then leave it to the viewer's discretion as to which could be more interesting.
