Cannibal Ferox (1981)

Lenzi doing what Lenzi does best: copying a movie but adding more of what, superficially, made the original successful and in the process losing what made the original so great in the first place. In this case Cannibal Holocaust gets the Lenzi treatment. More blood, more animal cruelty, less great camerawork, less story, less ideas.

The effects are pretty damn good but the animal deaths were even more pointless than in Cannibal Holocaust - the coati being a case in point. It's ok but not something I'd be in a rush to watch again, unlike Cannibal Holocaust.
