No one cared thus far. Do you?


AKA: Il Paese del Sesso Selvaggio, Sacrifice!
Directed by: Umberto Lenzi
Starring: Ivan Rassimov (Bradley), Me Me Lay (Maraya)
Country: Italy; Effed Up European Films
Language: Italian, Burmese; Effed Up Italian Cinema
Runtime: 01:33:11
Genres: Captivity, Cannibalism, Gruesome, Insects-Small Animals, Violence involving Animals, Violence against Men

Plot – Spoilers:
A European photographer scours the Myanmar-Thailand riverways for exotic fish, until he’s captured by a remote tribe and ironically taken as a slave. The chief’s daughter takes a fancy to him and soon enough, he wins the tribe over to become one of them. The rarity of a slave rising to become a respected member of the enslavers should itself have been worthy of a landmark movie. But this is more landmark as being often credited with triggering the cannibal craze in the ’70s.

The opening music and color tone is nostalgia reason enough to watch it, despite not being as extreme as some of the others that came in its wake. There are also other silly motivations to watch this, like reading the opening titles and realizing one of the lead actors is called Me Me Lay.

There seems to be lots of immature people who make comments on this website but they rarely make comments about the movies. The person who keeps saying that you are acting like little assholes is right on the money.

Ivan Rassimov plays American photographer John Bradley, on vacation in Thailand. He and his guide end up deep in the jungle, where he is abducted by a primitive tribe. They put him into a variety of tortures and trials, until finally accepting him as one of their own. He finds adjusting to this new life to be surprisingly agreeable, especially when he becomes smitten with Maraya (Me Me Lai), the lovely daughter of the tribes’ leader. Considered to the vanguard film in that jungle / cannibal genre popularized by the Italians, this is definitely a trail blazer, but people who’ve already seen more famous entries in the genre may be caught off guard with this one. It’s more of a straight drama (heavily influenced by Elliot Silversteins’ Western “A Man Called Horse”) with touches of horror than a body munching / body count / exploitation feature. In reality, despite the presence of a hostile cannibal tribe in the film, only one person ever gets turned into a feast. “Sacrifice!”, a.k.a. “The Man from the Deep River”, isn’t without its gory pleasures, however. It benefits from excellent location shooting and utterly convincing local color. It’s wonderfully shot, and scored, and is overall quite appealing and engaging. It’s not to all tastes, though, because it includes some brief moments of animal cruelty that will turn off some members of the audience. This, of course, has only become one of the elements that recurs throughout many an Italian jungle adventure. Rassimov is good… Read more »

Thanks EUM i have seen all the other “Cannibal Boom” Movies of the late 70s early 80s but not this one, I used to think cannibal holocaust was the beginning of it all, so seeing these prior movies are a treat & ive wanted to see this for a long time, much appreciated.

Damn this movie was made before Cannibal Holocaust. I’m familiar with Mondo Cane and many exploitation movies but I still have a lot to learn.
