I knew this was a horror and gore classic so it's what I expected, the movie even if it has bad special effects is very disgusting and fucked up, it's the magic of cinema how they can make a scene disgusting with clever camera angles and some fake blood and guts kek. In 1980 the director used a very good marketing campaign like it was real and everyone believed it, he had to call the actors on a live TV program because they thought they really died and it was a snuff film :feelskek: If the name wasn't clear enough, it's about some dumb and sadistic journalists that go into the Amazon forest to make a documentary about cannibal indians but it goes very wrong because of the stupidity of the journalists and how they annoy the native population to get good footage.

The movie is infamously known because real animals were killed during the making, there's a super graphic and gross scene where they butcher up a turtle and it's like watching those narco videos where they dismember or disembowel some poor snitching latinocel, but instead it's a turtle :worryfeels: At least they ate it after but it was a very unnecesary dead and it was after this movie when they passed legislations against animal abuse in the film industry. Apart from that I thought the critique to journalism and violence in news media was good, as years go by I realize that journalism is one of the most hypocritical sectors of our society.
