Horrible film..but still entertaining .

There's some comments there, describing Mondo Cannibale as a boring movie.

White Cannibal Queen is typically boring, with lots and lots of slow-motion, extreme-close-up cannibal chowdowns.

Lacking most of the fundamentals that make a professional film, it's barely credible as a movie a labour that may even bore the cannibal enthusiasts.

5 minutes of slow tedious shots of moaning and whimpering and ridiculous face shots of the cannibals munching on pieces of cantaloupe.

the boring cannibalism scenes, all shot in slow-mo and the same as the last.

Sadly, all the rest is very boring.

But those were captivating and eventful films, whereas Franco's movie is extremely dull and stupid from start to finish.

better than watching paint dry...

Don't waste your time.

"White Cannibal Queen" is slow-paced, dull and poorly made.

Siani spends the entire movie half-naked, but she's such a terrible actress even that gets boring, and her one sex scene can best be described as somnambulistic.

As such, much like his 'Oasis of the Zombies' a couple of years later, this is a perfunctory work – quite enjoyable and not without merit, but containing little that is compelling.

Scenes, especially the cannibalism scenes, get drawn out to the nth degree.

the unrepentantly repetitive scenes in this film give way to a genuinely weakly carried-out plot and generally ruin what could have been a good film.

Years later, after being nursed back to semi-health by Lina Romay as Candy Coaster as Ana the nurse, Taylor vows to return to the 'jungle' (which looks like a palm tree park and is shown to be located on the edge of bustling civilisation) with a group of people led by a rich couple who don't believe his story anyway and think the whole thing will be a bit of fun.

Years later, the scientist comes back for his daughter, along with a couple of bored rich people who don't believe in his story and are just there to have fun.

With that out of the way this film is still pretty bland as Franco seems to forget (or didn't know) what made those Italian films work and that's that they played out well as adventure films.

Enjoyable Cannibal Eurotrash!

If you get bored, count the screenplay inconcinstensies.

Dull because there's almost no storyline and not even a remotely interesting character drawing and stupid because the sequences involving cannibalism and/or savage tribes are hilarious instead of grueling!

He films the cannibal scenes in such a way that they are boring.

) This film is The Worst Cannibal Film that I have seen out of Deodato's "Cannibal Holocaust" (1980) and Lenzi's "Cannibal Ferox" (1981) in that there is no social commentary, none of the characters go through any change, and it's just pointless.

Years of intense psychiatric help later, he mobilizes an expedition team and re-enters the jungle to rescue his daughter.

Here though it's just tedious and dull--the only way this rates a "99 on the vomit meter," as Joe Bob Briggs supposedly said, is if extreme boredom causes you to somehow throw up.
