The Woman From Deep River is known elsewhere in the world as Cannibal Ferox and Make Them Die Slowly... for years it has boasted itself as the most gruesome movie ever made. It may not retain that honour amongst some of today's films but it definitely remains one of the most grotesque. In the wake of Cannibal Holocaust, Italian exploitation director Umberto Lenzi upped the ante and delivered this nasty piece of work. The concept is almost identical to Holocaust with a group of people venturing into the jungles of Paraguay to dispel rumours of tribal cannibalism. Of course they find themselves in deep shit. The film was banned and eventually released heavily edited where it languished in the "video nasties" section for years. Its imagery is brutal, barbaric and realistic. Much like Holocaust, it depicts real images of animal cruelty & slaughter and this stuff is difficult to stomach. The most recent releases of the movie have edited a lot of this stuff out and to be honest, its not missed. Most of the staged (fake) violence is brilliant. Scalping, disemboweling and a heap of other nasty things. The last time I watched it was on a VHS tape and I reckon I prefer it that way. I have no real desire to see it on dvd and so I really regret selling my tape when dvd came along... I regret selling most of my VHS.
