director Jesús Franco
Mondo Cannibale is neither the best nor the worst cannibal flick ever, though it’s closer to the latter.
It’s kind of like H. Rider Haggard’s She as a cannibal flick with an origin story. With 17 year old Sabrina Siani as blonde cannibal queen. Her father, played by Al Cliver must return to rescue her.
It features some very ethnically diverse cannibals in hella face paint.
It’s crap for sure but it’s the first film I’ve seen that I’d definitely say that Jesús Franco elevated with his style. Maybe because it was less a pure Franco flick, not working from his own script.
Ah, well. Vive, Franco!
