The Film
A group of jungle explorers have a devious plan to find a native tribe that is rich with diamonds and poison the whole tribe to take their riches for themselves. On the way they encounter a jungle man, potentially a son of God, who is quite the stud. He has sex with the women, he hangs out with a gorilla who loves sex and is just a great guy. Is he able to stop the devious plan from going down and save the natives and the innocents  or will he perish with them?

JUNGLE BLUE isn't easily summed up in a review. It isn't some avant garde arthouse film, but the sheer absurdity of it all is almost too much for words. Hell, one of the first things you see is a gorilla getting a blowjob from a woman. Fans of weird cinema need to see JUNGLE BLUE, whether you're a fan of vintage pornos or not, you owe it to yourself to see this. You may even be a better person because of it.

The Audio & Video
Vinegar Syndrome's transfer on JUNGLE BLUE is quite good. There is a bit of print damage evident in the form of scratches but they're not distracting and otherwise the transfer looks really good. Colors are vibrant and skin tones are natural. There are no compression issues to speak of in the anamorphic 16x9 presentation. The English mono track is mostly free of background noise and sounds very good otherwise. 

The Extras
A theatrical trailer is the lone special feature

The Bottom Line
JUNGLE BLUE is one strange film, in the best possible way. It draws you in and doesn't let go until it is over. You'll laugh, you'll cringe, and you'll wonder just exactly what the fuck it is that you're watching.
