Oddly enough, Jungle Holocaust (1977) wasn’t just a cheap little horror/exploitation crank-’em-out, though the budget certainly was paltry. In an attempt to imbue the movie with realism, he shot it all on location in Malaysia and Mindanao, using a mostly native cast; the title card which starts the movie claims it to be a true story. I don’t know about that claim, but I know that treating it as if it was a recreation rather than a tawdry B-movie adds something to it — a patina, almost, of respectability.
