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.
