Well firstly this has a lot of skin, a lot of Ursula's skin, and well she seems to like to get naked for no reason here. Now that I have your attention, the film really is nicely shot in the jungle and stuff and the story is alright. Ursula's character and her brother go to South America to find her husband. They meet up with a Doctor and together the three go into the jungle and of course end up in major danger. This one was in trouble with the censors for animal cruelty (in particular brutality towards an iguana) but most of the cannibal series are much harsher than this one. Still if you are into the jungle horror stuff you'll want to see this, but from what I understand buying or watching this film under the title "Slave Of The Cannibal Gods" is less desirable because it's heavily edited so stick to "Mountain Of The Cannibal Gods" if you can.
