Cannibal Holocaust

Synopsis: With the intention to venture into the unexplored areas in the deep jungle of the Amazon rainforest at the border between Brazil and Peru, in 1979, a film crew composed of four young Americans attempted to make a documentary about the never seen before indigenous cannibalistic tribes. However, it's already been two months since anyone last heard from the crew, so without further delay, the noted anthropologist Professor Harold Monroe and his rescue team of the seasoned guide Chaco Losojos and his assistant, embarked on a mission to locate them in the depths of the Green Inferno. Following the Yakumos, a tribe that no white has ever seen before, soon enough, the Professor's rescue party will encounter the elusive Yanomamos or Tree People and the fearsome Shamataris or the Swamp People. Eventually, as more evidence is found concerning the fate of the film crew, the Professor will try to recover the raw footage that was paid in blood, and return it to New York to the executives of the Pan

Do you think you can turn that...?

Thanks... All I can say is that you

anthropologists and missionaries,

are made out of special stuff.

If hell holes like this didn't exist

I'm sure you would invent one.

Whereas I'd give both my...

well let's say I'd give anything

to be somewhere else.

Look, Lieutenant.

I'll be as little trouble as possible, it's just...

I'm sure you got enough problems of your own.

I'll have to be honest with you...

No, no thanks...

I need your help in organizing this expedition.

How can I refuse?

You have been recommended by everybody.

Only a sure guarantee that you'll

still be breathing when you return.

Look, I know this is not going

to be a picnic, believe me.

This is not my first trip into bush.

A skunk must have pissed that...


This lighter belonged to Faye Daniels.

Come with me, Professor.

I'll introduce you to your guide.

He's the best there is,

if you can get along with him.

Hey Chaco! This is professor Monroe.

Hello... Nice to meet you.

Lieutenant here was telling me...

What a excellent guide you are.

You gonna take all of this with you in the jungle?

Yes, well forget it.

We gonna need some weapons...

Some ammunition plus some medicine

that's all we need.

I already told your friends.

The more you carry, the quicker you get tired...

the sooner you die.

Alright, alright...

All I wanna know Mr. Chaco is

do we have a chance of finding them alive?

Who's to say?

The only thing I know is - we're gonna risk our lives to

save those fuckers...

Let's go see Yacumos.

Great warriors, these Yacumos!

They're afraid of no one except the Tree People.

No white man has ever seen them

Or the ones who have, never lived to tell.

Did you see this?

Looks like the sacred scar of Ateri.
