Okay, now I know that last ad technically isn’t a double-feature but it still cracks me all the hell up. Inspired by Elliot Silverstein’s A Man Called Horse, which saw Richard Harris forcibly going native and suspended on a couple of meat-hooks through his chest, Umberto Lenzi’s unofficial remake finds another Brit well off the beaten path of civilization, deep in the jungles of Thailand, where he is captured by some natives who go all Mondo Cane on his ass. Yeah, we’ve got Cannibal Cinema Ground Zero, here, folks, complete with sadistic tribal rituals, wholesale animal slaughter, and who the hell knows what else will be permanently scarred into you retinas. And with its box-office success, for the next decade, Lenzi and fellow Italian director Ruggero Deodato would continually march off into the jungle to try and one up each other by heaping one atrocity on top of the other in effort to make the audience taste their popcorn twice. And you can see it all if you’re over 18 — with proof, pilgrim.

Apparently, these South Sea and Far East Goona Goona flicks were a genre all by themselves. Who knew, right? Well, anyways, depending on which translation you believe, Goona Goona either refers to a potent aphrodisiac or some kind of evil spell. Hunh … On second thought, that might be considered the same thing in some circles. But not mine. And these films, about a baker’s dozen of stock and travelogue footage-fueled exploitaters mostly concerned themselves with the same nookie nookie. This mondo double feature of rehashed releases then continues with a trip to Africa, specifically a safari through the Belgian Congo, for a peek at the taboos of the local tribes — in a National Geographic sense, if you know what I mean.
