Barbara Bach, Claudio Cassinelli, Mel Ferrer, Romano Puppo, Fabrizia Castagnoli, Enzo Fisichella, Lory Del Santo, and Anny Papa
A photographer is hired to fly to a newly built resort in the middle of the jungle to take some some publicity photos for the owner. Upon his arrival he is given a guided tour of the grounds and ends up finding himself very interested in the owners beautiful assistant (Barbara Bach).
Meanwhile two locals sail to a nearby island to get it on and on their way back they are attacked and killed by a giant alligator. The photographer and the assistant hear their screams and figure out what happened when they discover the remains of the couples boat.
The ancient jungle god Kruna is pissed about the multi-million dollars tourist trap resort and has taken the form of a giant man-eating alligator. The greedy hotel owner is not convinced
though and since his first guests are coming to stay he doesnt want to start a panic. The situation is futher complicated when the local tribesmen go on a violent killing spree and slaughter nearly all the annoying tourists. It is not until the assistant is captured, stripped and trussed up down by the river to act as a sacrifice to Kruna that the magnate finally listens, but by then it is far too late as the giant alligator tears through the rest of the guest list
Sergio Martino creates a uniquely cruel and menacing atmosphere and the death scenes are done with great skill and panache. Also features an excellent 70's jungle music score by Stelvio Cipriani.
