'''''Cannibal Ferox''''', also known as ''Make Them Die Slowly'' and ''Woman from Deep River'' is a 1981 [[ExploitationFilm exploitation]] horror film directed by Umberto Lenzi.

From beginning to end, it's a watered-down [[{{Plagiarism}} rip-off]] of ''Film/CannibalHolocaust''.

Three college kids, Gloria (Lorraine De Selle), Rudy (Danilo Mattei) and Pat (Zora Kerova), [[TemptingFate out to write a thesis that cannibalism no longer exists]] head to South America. Once there, they encounter a pair of drug dealers, Mike (Giovanni Lombardo Radice) and Joe (Walter Lucchini) who claim to be fleeing from a CannibalTribe that attacked them. [[WhatAnIdiot Continuing on until they reach the tribe for some reason]], they find the village deserted except for a few members lurking around the fringes. It seems Mike lied; he had actually been forcing the tribe to gather coca and mine for emeralds, and had killed one of them for his own sadistic amusement, prompting the attack. When he kills another one, the tribe decides there shall be no more and goes on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge against the dealers and kiddies. {{Gorn}} ensues.

No 70s/80s grindhouse CannibalFilm would be complete without some [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman genuine animal killings]]; here a rodent is eaten by an anaconda, a monkey is eaten by a leopard, a boar is stabbed, a turtle is dismembered, and an alligator is sliced open. Also; the film's principal marketing point was that it had allegedly been [[BannedInChina banned in 31 countries]]. However, a complete list of the countries it was banned in has never been given, and many of the countries it was once banned in have now lifted the ban.
