Did You Know?


Director's trademark: (Crazed murderous locals) The Peruvian headhunter tribe and peruvian militia. See more »


No matter the potency of Lars' Peruvian cannabis, not enough was administered to Amy's corpse to inebriate the entire cannibal tribe after she is cooked. Also the right amount of cannabis would not have caused the watch platform tribesman to pass off the platform, considering that he had not ingested a single piece of her. See more »


Samantha: [watching the cannibalism of Jonah] We have to get out of here.

Crazy Credits

SPOILER: The end credits are interrupted after about 20 seconds for a stinger scene of Lucille (Alejandro's sister) calling Justine and telling her that she found a satellite photo of her brother (alive). See more »

Alternate Versions

In Singapore, the film was edited before it could be approved for release with an R21 rating. The distributor was made to remove an instance of strong graphic violence which the board felt was gratuitous; the scene in question occurs as the natives hold a man down and torture him cracking open his skull, removing his tongue and limbs, gouging his eyes out and severing his limbs. Without these cuts the film would have been refused classification. See more »

I liked it! Here's why....
12 January 2019 | by El_NastroSee all my reviews

This is a gross, disgusting, VILE movie. It's explicit, nasty, brutal, mean, dirty, violent, cruel, and yucky. And I mean that in a good way. Here's what I really love about though...it's SUBVERSIVE. One of the Sacred Rules of Moviemaking is that Indigenous Peoples MUST ALWAYS be Good and Nobly Oppressed. The Natives are always Wise, Peace-Loving, At-One-With-Nature, Kind, Generous, and Spiritual. While the Western White Capitalists are the Evil Tyrants who want to burn down the Beautiful Forest, kill the Noble Natives, and steal the Noble Natives' land. Anything else would be UNTHINKABLY RACIST. This movie though....THIS movie breaks the rules. It breaks the rules, spits on them, and curses their parentage. The Natives in THIS movie check none of the Required Politically Correct Boxes, and the American Activists do NOT become Beloved Heroes to the Natives, or Honorary Members of the Tribe...this isn't Dances With Wolves, or Pocahontas, or Avatar, or any of the countless other movies featuring Nobly Oppressed Natives battle Evil Industrial Capitalism with the Help of Enlightened "Woke" Activist-Types. This movie is MEAN, and it acknowledges that anyone can be horrible regardless of where they're from. This is great!
