Quotes

Helena: [addressing women in the corral] Everyone up! A few of you leave tomorrow morning. Do everything you can to please the buyers and you'll lead a life of luxury - jewels - and we all like jewels. And you never can tell, girls, you could meet the man of your life. He'll take care of you. Not bad, eh?
Betty: You can count me out. We're not merchandise to be bought and sold. You got most of us here with the promise of work. Nobody mentioned being locked up in this filthy hole.

A wall-to-wall Brazilian sleaze.
16 June 2006 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

Sexy Brazilian women are lured to the Amazon with a promise of a high paying job as a tour guide.When they arrive,they are taken captive by a white slavery ring.One of the girls escapes during the orgy,but she is killed in the jungle.Meanwhile,the gals in the corral make their big break and escape into the jungle."Amazon Jail" by Oswaldo De Oliviera is an absolute sleaze.The script is ridiculous,the acting is utterly bad,the characters are one-dimensional,but who cares.The film provides tons of full-frontal nudity and sleaze,so as a exploitation fan I wasn't disappointed.It is loaded with lesbian sex,showers,cat fights and naked women in the jungle.A must-see for fans of WIP flicks set in the jungle.7 out of 10.
