Though of course, you can still expect the animal cruelty, which is rampant throughout the whole film.

I think this one has the most animal cruelty scenes. It gets pretty unbearable, so animal lovers beware. However, for the most part during the movie, I kept thinking to myself, "This is a gorgeous movie, I loving it, but I don't understand why it's so extreme to be banned. Sure the animal scenes are cruel, but it's a bit tame compared to the other flicks Trust me, my jaw hit the floor during the end.

It actually gets pretty damn scary at the end. Like a more extreme version of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. Those interested in extreme cinema can expect some really graphic scenes including a bestiality scene.

Final thoughts? Yeah, this one was a really good one.
Looked quite expensive to make as well. I found myself very much engrossed in the whole thing. For a Cannibal exploitation movie, it's very well made and highly captivating. Highly recommended! Witchfinder-General 5 August I'm a big fan of director Sergio Martino, who ranges among the finest filmmakers in Italian Horror, particularly for his Gialli.
Having adequately praised Martino, it has to be said that his early contribution to the Cannibal sub-genre is not one of the most stunning examples for its type of film.
After the disappearance of a scientist in the unexplored jungle of New Guinea, his sexy wife Susan Ursula Andress is dedicated to find him. In spite of all warnings, She decides to search for him herself. Accompanied by her brother Antonio Marsini and her husband's colleague Professor Edward Foster Stacy Keach , she travels deeper into the jungle Within the Cannibal sub-genre, "The Mountain Of The Cannibal God" is not a particularly memorable film, but it has several qualities that no Italian Exploitation lover should miss.
While this is not as nauseating and shocking as some of the Cannibal flicks to come such as Deodato's masterpiece "Cannibal Holocaust" or Lenzi's "Cannibal Ferox" and "Eaten Alive" it is quite focused on the sleaze factor, at least in its uncut version.
The film's main attraction, of course, is Ursula Andress, who was still very sexy at 41, when the film was made. But seeing sexy Ursula naked is not the only reason to watch the film. It often has a good atmosphere, the jungle settings are great and the score by the De Angelis Brothers is superb the Cannibal sub-genre is generally known for great scores.
As most other Cannibal flicks, the film includes real animal killings, which might shock animal protectors, but which actually seem like whatever one might see in wildlife documentaries. Overall this is a worthwhile, but not particularly memorable example for the Cannibal sub-genre. Fans of the genre should see it, and in case you wanna see Miss Andress undress who would't? To experience a masterpiece of the Italian Cannibal sub-genre, however, watch "Cannibal Holocaust".
Soon the group are battling the wildlife as well as a cannibal tribe that were thought to have gone extinct. Andress certainly had come a long way since her DR. NO days but I must admit that I really enjoyed seeing her here. Even though she was years-old at the time of filming, the actress looks absolutely beautiful and it was fun seeing her give it her all in regards to not only the nudity but also going around in dirty water and dealing with countless things including a large python at one point.
It was also fun watching Keach here who is as calm and collective no matter what he's doing. The two of them certainly help keep the film moving and it's fun seeing them in an exploitation film like this. Martino actually does a nice job in the directing department as he at least brings some style to the film and doesn't forget to deliver on the trash. Those against animal killings are going to want to avoid this as there's some pretty graphic stuff going on here.

The movie also offers up some pretty graphic violence towards humans and the uncut version of the film features a pig rape and other sexual natured stuff. In fact, I'd say go with the slightly shorter version to miss this trash. As with most in the genre, I think the films work best if you look at them as jungle adventures and on that level the locations and the drama behind the various attacks make the film worth viewing. Of course, most stomachs aren't going to be able to take it.
Snake 29 October Susan Stevenson Ursula Andress and her brother, Arthur Antonio Marsina , travel to the jungles of New Guinea to search for a lost expedition, which included Susan's husband. They enlist the help of Edward Foster Stacey Keach , an anthropologist, who has visited the area before and is certain that Susan's husband went to the supposedly cursed area known as Ra Ra Mea, on the island of Roka. The plotline was dreadfully arranged which meant that all the supposed plot-twists were noticeable long before they even happened.
Rather than be shocked or appalled by the depictions on-screen, it becomes far easier for the viewer to laugh at what is going on; a reaction that no good exploitation flick should produce. Having said that, the first thirty-five minutes or so were fairly entertaining and set the movie up nicely. The movie benefited from some surprising and effective moments, as well as many well-executed but basic effects.
Ursula managed to portray the sexiness of her character despite being over 40 at the time very well which certainly allowed the movie to gain in some respects from the multiple nude scenes in which she was involved. However, nudity as we know does not make a good movie.
Claudio Cassinelli also gave a pleasing performance in his role as jungle-wise Manolo. The only bad performance was that of Antonio Marsina who came across as monotonous and unmotivated. His performance was less than aided by the terrible scripting for his character. Although the character of Arthur was obviously meant to come across as an annoyance, he became too annoying and thus made all scenes in which he was involved almost too painful to watch.
One could be forgiven for wishing that Arthur had been killed at the beginning of the movie.

For all the movies faults there were some pleasantly entertaining scenes scattered about and although the viewer may be put off by the constant dragging, the later scenes can be somewhat of an enjoyable experience. The more basic effects were usually of a good standard but some of the advanced effects later in the movie fell very short and were thoroughly unconvincing. This movie is worth watching once, but I doubt many would deem it worthy of multiple viewings. Being left extremely impressed by Umberto Lenzi's surprisingly elegant Man From Deep River and Ruggero Deodato's " rough'N' ready" Jungle Holocaust,I decided that I should finally go on a journey to the wild Italian jungle with a director whose work I have always been keen in taking a look at.
The plot: Feeling uneasy over not hearing a single word from her husband Henry, since he left to do an expedition in a remote jungle based in New Guinea. Susan Stevenson decides that she has had enough of waiting by the phone,and is instead going to New Guinea in an attempt to find out what has been keep Henry so busy. Not wanting his sister to visit a possibly dangerous place on her own,Susan's brother Arthur decides to come along so that he can watch her back and protect her if any situation arises.
Shortly after getting off the plane,Susan and Arthur enlist the help of mutual friend Dr.

Edward Foster to guide them through the jungle which Susan suspects contains her husband. Talking to the local residents who live near by the jungle,the group are terrified to discover, that the residents have made it a rule that no one is allowed to enter the jungle of "Ra Ra Me",due to there being a legendary myth about the mountain surrounded by the jungle being cursed. Wanting to show off the films stunning New Guinea location,Martino uses a number of wide angles that along with allowing him to show all of the environment that the group are finding themselves up against,also allows him to give an equal amount of focus to the actors and the fantastic location that they are surrounded by.
Despite being all shot on location,the last 30 minutes or so of the film set in a New Guinea mountain cave feel disappointingly "stagey",due to the location oddly not crating any atmospheric sense of "danger",and the residents of the cave being weird a scene involving someone getting a little too friendly with a pig being a particularly strange moment! Watching the bonus interview for this very enjoyable film on the Blue Underground DVD,I was surprised to see Sergio Martino being openly shown as lying about not knowing that the scenes of animal torture in the movie were not going to take place.
Although the animal killing scenes are on the nasty side,Martino smartly goes for a much more matter of fact directing style of the scenes,and thankfully avoids the feeling of the scenes just being there to make the viewers jump out of their seats.

Although I have not seen Dr No in a number of years,I feel that the great performance by Ursula Anderss whose beautiful curves are put on full display for the films final really helps to hold the film together,thanks to Andress showing Susan to be someone who is prepared to run straight into a paternally deadly situation,but is also someone who most of the time knows when to use her intelligence's and instincts to avoid the deadly traps that lay before her. For the excellent screenplay of the film,Martino and Frugoni initially make the film look like its going to be a fun Jungle adventure,until around the half way point.
Where,Martino and Frugoni cleverly allow the gangs dark internal motives to slowly rise to the suffice,and make each of the characters look far from the innocents that they may have originally appeared. The most entertaining cannibal movie I've seen. Sleazy fun with a great cast. Infofreak 8 November I can passionately defend many exploitation and b-grade movies, but even I find it difficult to stick up for Italian cannibal movies.
On top of that they are also really insulting when they are set in say, Borneo or New Guinea, and the "natives" are extras from the Philippines or Sri Lanka or wherever the movie was filmed on the cheap. As if it doesn't matter what ethnic group they are! Anyway, 'Mountain Of The Cannibal God' isn't as notorious as some of the Deodato or Lenzi cannibal movies from the 70s, but for some reason I found it to be the most entertaining example of the genre I've seen.
