"I thought this was a very entertaining Paul Naschy movie minus the werewolf. No El Hombre Lobo this time. This time its cannibalism. Naschy (aka Jacinto Molina) plays a crook named Bruno who double crosses the woman he claims he loves and kills her brother in a diamond heist , wanting the diamonds for himself. Whats interesting about this is some of the cast in Japanese so when you watch the DVD you get both Spanish & English subtitles when the cast speaks in Japanese.
Hell hath no faith like a woman scorned. Soon his ex love (who is supposed to be pregnant) goes after him to get revenge. She catches up to Bruno & shoots him, but doesnt quite kill him. Bruno,wounded and bloody does manage to escape & winds up in a home of a father, 2 daughters and an African American housekeeper who keeps getting harassed by a local pervert
This family who takes care of Bruno and helps him recuperate turn out to be a group of cannibals, having learned that wonderful trait while in Africa (where they met the housekeeper).
This family raises pigs which eat people (there is one gory scene of the pigs eating a man). This is where it gets tricky..if the family members are cannibals, why are they feeding humans to the pigs ? And why didnt they just eat Bruno right away when he was helpless ? And when Bruno drinks poison wine why did it take all night for him to pass out (he drinks it before he sleeps and passes out the next morning to find the diamonds he hid)
This has some gore but nothing compared to the Werewolf films. There is the usual nudity with Naschy making love to the local babes (the obligatory scenes in Naschy films). I thought the love interest this one was unexpectedly better than I thought. If you like Paul Naschy as El Hombre Lobo-the Wolfman this is easily worth seeing & for others worth buying..it was a pleasant surprise with a good story and a strong love interest
BCIs DVD print is fantastic - a crisp clear transfer all the way through with supplements and an intro with the recently deceased Paul Naschy"
