The Man From the Deep River

A classical cannibal flick from Italian director Umberto Lenzi that I enjoyed watching.

The plot circles around John Bradley, a photographer on a mission in the Thai rainforest. John falls asleep in a canoe and awakens to find his assistant dead. A native tribe captures John in a net and carries him to their village. The tribe is at war with another more primitive tribe of cannibals, and John soon finds himself trapped between the two tribes and his feelings towards the chief’s daughter.

Other than being the first cannibal film, Man from Deep River is also notorious for several scenes of extreme violence and gore, which is standard for the genre.
