When bodyparts start disappearing from a New York City hopital,
assistant doctor & part time anthropologist Lori (Alexandra Delli
Colli) soon finds some trails leading to some South East Asian tribes,
& when FBI-agent Chandler (Ian McCulloch) approves of her conclusions, a trip to
South East Asia, especially the island Kito, seems to be mandatory.
they have arrived there, their exopedition - besides from Lori &
Chandler journalist Susan (Sherry Buchanan) & her boyfriend George
(Peter O'Neal) - are greeted with open arms by Doctor O'Biren (Donald
O'Brien), who agrees to help them in any way he can & even sends his
manservant Moloto (Dakkar) slong for their trip to the jungle - all in
all, O'Brien is a little to helpful to not have some sinitster agenda of
his own ...
Once in the jungle though, our expedition soon has its
first encounter with the local cannibals, who have their porters for
snacks & soon reduce our groupt to the core (Chandler, Lori, Susan,
George & Moloto) before they can call O'Brien for help, who tells
them to go for an abandoned mission for safety.
Of course on the way
there, our expedition has another run-in with the cannibals, who
promptly abduct Susan & feast on George, but when attacking Lori
& Chandler, they are chased away by ... zombies !!!
becomes apparent that htese undead beings are creations of doc O'Brien,
who wants to beat mortality at any price, & he even has Susan on his
operating table to become his next victim.
All the while though he
still pretends to be on Chandler's & Lori's side & even offers
them a boat to get away (a trap, naturally), but Chandler is way too
much a cop to not grow suspidcious & start investigating.
course, he is captured by O'Brien & Moloto & tied to an
operating table, with O'Brien gloating about how he beat mortality (for
some reason oblivious to the fact that all his victims become mindless
zombies). Lori managed to escape the mad doctor, though, but is captured
by the cannibals, who rather surprisingly treat her to ...
session of body painting (??? - sorry, I got a little lost at this
point of the movie, but it did actually happen), for it might be that
the cannibals inexplicably think she is their goddess.
Chandler can free himself from the operating table & escape with
Lori, who arrives with the cannibals after they have decided to pay the
friendly doctor a visit to revolt against him & his zombies ...
concept might sound infallible - combine the cannibal- & the
zombie-genre to double the gore (in order to - most probably - reach a
larger audience), but at the same time it's also somewhat doomed from
the start, as there is only so much gore you can squeeze into a movie
& get away with - and the core audience of a zombie - & a
cannibal-flick is pretty mcuh the same anyways. The fact that the
gore-effects are not particularly convincing, the direction is rather
uninspired & the movie as a whole is rather a far cry from either
genre's classics or favourites doesn't really help the movie either.
the rather hilarious efforts to force the 2 genres into a coherent movie
paired with many trash-horror standard situations & familiar faces
from this kind of movies make this one a mindless, good-natured hoot.
