The Amazon Jungle is a moist broadleaf forest that covers most of the Amazon Basin of South America. This basin encompasses seven million square kilometers (1.7 billion acres), of which five and a half million square kilometers (1.4 billion acres) are covered by the rainforest. This region includes territory belonging to nine nations. The majority of the forest is contained within Brazil, with 60% of the rainforest, followed by Peru with 13%, and with minor amounts in Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, Guyana, Suriname and France (French Guiana).

The Amazon Jungle played a major role in the 1954 Universal Pictures horror classic Creature from the Black Lagoon. In the film, a team of scientists hire a steamer to take them down the Amazon River in search of fossil samples dating back to the Devonian era. What they find however is a living creature inexplicably cast out of time that embodies many physical characteristics of its amphibian forebearers.

A few years after Creature from the Black Lagoon, Fortress Film Productions, Ltd. released the b-movie The Woman Eater, directed by Charles Saunders. In the film, ambitious scientist Doctor James Moran discovers a special breed of tree in the Amazon that can produce an elixir that will bring the dead back to life. To harness the elixir however, Doctor Moran must satiate the tree's appetite with a steady diet of the most delictible entree in the world - women!
