Giovanni Lombardo Radice used the stage name John Morghen to make audiences think Cannibal Ferox was more of an Americanized movie rather than an "obscure foreign film".
Umberto Lenzi used the same music as he used in his earlier film, Mangiati vivi! (1980), in this one.
The Australian title "Woman from Deep River" was made to cash in on one of Umberto Lenzi's previous films, Il paese del sesso selvaggio (1972), which is known in Australia as "Man from Deep River".
Like Cannibal Holocaust (1980), this movie contains several actual animal killings. Though his character kills an animal in the film, Giovanni Lombardo Radice strongly objected to the animal killings and refused to participate in them (a double had to be used). Director Umberto Lenzi tried to convince Radice to do the killings by telling him, "De Niro [Robert De Niro] would do it," to which Radice responded, "De Niro would kick your ass all the way back to Rome."
