Kannibalinnen im Avocado-Dschungel des Todes: Directed by J.F. Lawton. With Shannon Tweed, Bill Maher, Karen M. Waldron, Adrienne Barbeau. The government hires a feminist at the local university to track down the Piranha Women living in the uncharted Avocado Jungle (westernmost outpost is San Bernardino) to convince them to move to a reservation condo in Malibu. She hires a guide at the edge of the jungle, a male chauvinist pig, and they have many arguments about men and women as they work their way in, and eventually confront the Piranha Women.

“Truly ridiculous film from one time Full Moon Films Director/Writer J.F. Lawton who has gone on to write numerous more successful, and quite similar, films and series for cinema and television. This film is sometimes credited as launching star Bill Maher to comedy prime time though as the exploration guide to Dr. Margo Hunt (Shannon Tweed) and her assistant Bunny (Karen M. Waldron) he rarely shines in this watchable but mediocre movie. Tweed and co are sent in to the jungle to look for a scary man-eating tribe and to try and secure the future of Avocardos for the USA. There are direct parallels here with the current need for oil and in many ways, because of the current climate, the movie manages to become clever satire when this was probably never the intention. Several digs at the then growing womenu0026#39;s movement are thrown in such as Maheru0026#39;s u0026quot;She wants to eat me, see for yourself what the womenu0026#39;s movement is all aboutu0026quot; or the suggestion that no Feminist has advocated Feminism since the 1960s. These jokes aside however – and the obvious fact that the women are all u0026#39;sexyu0026#39; and scantily clad – it is the women who are frequently shown to be smart and the men merely void of intelligence and only useful for the reproductive gene they hold. The Carl Dante music (a regular Full Moon composer at the time) is more than suitable and the film easily watchable, though perhaps only once.”
