"Cannibal Holocaust (L)" Boxart

Four students go into the South American, i.e. Amazonia, jungle, to film cannibals. They never return.
Six months later, Professor Harold Monroe leads a small team to find them. He comes upon a tribe of Yanomamo, the 'tree people', who seem to know who the students are. Eventually, he locates the students' remains, and the film from their video cameras. He takes it back to New York to figure out what happened. What he discovers is the true intentions of the students' expedition.
