Papaya: Love Goddess of the Cannibals!

When you title a film Papaya: Love Goddess of the Cannibals, you should expect people to be somewhat confused by the whole affair.  I mean, come on—what mother in her right mind names her kid Papaya?  And sure, adding on a terror hottie the likes of Melissa Chimenti is no small plus, but you’ve still got to overcome the mental block that, somehow, we’re watching a movie about a chick named after fruit.

And the plot of Papaya: Love Goddess of the Cannibals, is nothing less than a baffler.  A team of geologists wants to stage some atomic research on the middle of an island, but the indigenous population of cannibals is sort of, you know, in the way.  Thus, the geologists try their level best to get the cannibals off the island, but standing against the geologists is, of course, Papaya, titular Love Goddess of the Cannibals, who will be killing them all one by one just after seducing them.

I really can’t recall the last time I saw anything even vaguely resembling this, so I find myself sufficiently intrigued to start looking for a copy.
