After botching a kidnapping, two criminals hide with their victim in a friends house in the jungle. After one of them rapes the friend’s wife, they’re left to be eaten by a nearby cannibal tribe.

The film is notable for its use of several segments lifted directly from cult director Jess Franco’s film Mondo Cannibale.

Released at the end of the „cannibal boom“, this film is French, instead of Italian, like most films of the genre.

The film is notable for the fact that it shares an amount of footage with ‚Mondo Cannibale‘ (1980). While many sources suggest that Franco’s footage was ‚borrowed‘ for ‚Cannibal Terror‘, a closer examination reveals that there are more connections than this between the two films. Both films share a number of locations, cast, and even dubbing actors. Some connections which suggest more than a mere borrowing of footage are:

Sabrina Siani is the eponymous White Cannibal Queen of ‚Mondo Cannibale‘, and also appears (as a fully clothed adult) in a bar scene in ‚Cannibal Terror‘. Several shots of the dancing cannibal tribe in their village are common to both films, and several shots appear only in one or the other. One actor with a very distinctive face and large Mick-Jagger type of mouth is seen in ‚Cannibal Terror‘ in no less than three roles (two cannibals and one border guard) and is also quite visible as one of the cannibals devouring Al Cliver’s wife in ‚Mondo Cannibale‘.

Of course, in addition are the obvious cast parallels of Olivier Mathot, Antonio Mayans, both of whom have starring roles in both films. Another odd item is that Jess Franco is said to have produced work in the past under the pen name „Tabernaro“.
