Actually, they just wanted to fly a payroll to an oildrilling plant on some godforsaken Filippino island, but once there, Robert (Massimo Foschi) and Ralph (Ivan Rassimov) find the plant deserted, and themselves on the run from cannibals who have already eaten their two companions (Sheik Razak Shikur, Judy Rosly). Eventually, Robert and Ralph try to make good their getaway on a raft on one of the island's many rivers, but they have a horrible accident, during which Ralph disappears while Robert can save himself to the shore ... only to be captured by the cannibals, who (because of the airplane he came in) mistake him for a birdman and lock him in with some birds they either eat or use as bait for alligators ... and it's only a question of time until either will happen to Robert as well.

Only native girl Pulan (Me Me Lai) it seems shows some sympathy towards Robert, even if she misinterprets his pleas for food and instead treats him to a wank.

Eventually, Robert manages to break out of his cell during one of the natives' food orgies and takes Pulan hostage, forcing her to lead him to his airplane. But Pulan is a rather reluctant guide, and she runs away at the first opportunity ... only to be caught again by Robert, who then rapes her into submission. From then on she behaves like his lover ...

Later, Robert meets Ralph again, who seems to have survived the accident and the days after rather well, only his knee is hurt badly and actually already starts to rot ...

Our threesome continues their way to the airplane, with the cannibals always close behind, but it's only when the landing strip is already in sight that the cannibals attack, first capturing Pulan, beheading her, rip her chest open and fill it with hot burning coals. Then they go after Robert, but when Robert manages to kill one of them, rip his chest open and eat his fresh heart, they back off a bit, but follow in close distance.

Finally, Robert makes it to the airplane, dragging Ralph along who's already more dead than alive ... and when the plane actually takes off, Ralph dies ...

 

With Umberto Lenzi's Il Paese del Sesso Selvaggio/Deep River Savages, the Italian cannibal genre was born, but it did take another five years until it came into full swing with this film, which again stars Me Me Lai and Ivan Rassimov of Deep River Savages-fame. Compared to the former film, this one is much rougher and features way more explicit gore effects as well as the customary real life animal killings (which at times take quite a stomach).

As a whole, Jungle Holocaust is a pretty macho and very violent jungle adventure that only shows a very crude travesty of primitive, savage cultures (rather differently from Ruggero Deodato's genre masterpiece Cannibal Holocaust from 1980, actually), with the cannibalism thrown in rather for the sake of sensationalism, one has to suppose. That said however, at the same time the film can be seen as a tense, suspenseful and reasonably fast-paced jungle thriller, no masterpiece maybe, but good enough entertainment if - as I said - you have the stomach for it.
