- The film is considered to be the first "cannibal film", a subgenre of European exploitation films that was prevalent in Grindhouse cinema in the late seventies and early eighties.
Umberto Lenzi was heavily influenced by the American western A Man Called Horse (1970) when making this film. The plots of the two films are nearly identical, and the English title for this film, "Man from Deep River", is even supposed to echo the title "A Man Called Horse".
The film Cannibal ferox (1981), also directed by Umberto Lenzi, was originally released in Australia as "Woman from Deep River" in order to draw an implied connection with this film.
Ruggero Deodato's film Ultimo mondo cannibale (1977) was originally conceived as a sequel to Il paese del sesso selvaggio (1972), with Umberto Lenzi attached to direct. The project fell through when the producers refused to accept Lenzi's demands for higher payment. Deodato was eventually hired, and the project became a stand-alone film.
