 Man From Deep River (1972) Review:

Umberto Lenzi’s “The Man from the Deep River” is the first in the cannibal sub-genre and probably the most under-appreciated of the genre. It is also certainly one of Lenzi’s best works behind Deodato’s “Jungle Holocaust” and his most infamous “Cannibal Holocaust”.

To normal viewers, this film would appear very violent, but it is actually very standard in the cannibal genre as compared to other films such as “Cannibal Holocaust” “Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals” and “Cannibal Ferox”.

Even though this film doesn’t contain too much gore, it does, however, have a fairly interesting story. Not the best cannibal films, but still worth a look, especially for fans of the exploitation cinema and/or the cannibal sub-genre, and for those who enjoyed Umberto Lenzi’s other work such as “Cannibal Ferox” and “Eaten Alive”.
