Ratings Key

= Excellent. The best the genre has to offer.
1/2 = Very Good. Perhaps not "perfect," but undoubtedly a must-see.
★★★ = Good. Accomplishes what it sets out to do and does it well.
★★1/2 = Fair. Clearly flawed and nothing spectacular, but competently made. OK entertainment.
★★ = Mediocre. Either highly uneven or by-the-numbers and uninspired.
1/2 = Bad. Very little to recommend.
= Very Bad. An absolute chore to sit through.
NO STARS! = Abysmal. Unwatchable dreck that isn't even bad-movie amusing.
SBIG = So Bad It's Good. Technically awful movies with massive entertainment value.

Schiave bianche: violenza in Amazzonia (1985)

... aka: Amazonia: The Catherine Miles Story
... aka: Cannibal Holocaust 2
... aka: Captive Women VII: White Slave
... aka: Forest Slave
... aka: L'esclave blonde
... aka: White Slave

Directed by:
Mario Gariazzo

Catherine Miles (Elvire Audray) witness the brutal decapitation murders of both of her parents while they are vacationing near the Amazon River basin. She’s abducted by a tribe and taken deep into the jungle where she’s stripped, tortured, humiliated and forced to participate in various primitive rituals before being assimilated into the tribe and finding out it has its perks to be away from civilized man! A late entry in the popular Italian cannibal exploitation stomach-churner sub-genre, this one has milder violence than usual, no animal killings and concentrates mostly on the romance between Catherine and a hunky native (Will Gonzales)! A bit cheesy, but I still liked it.
