Don't mess with the natives!
Thirty years ago, cynical sleaze ball director Tito Bronze took a tiny cast and crew to a desolate island. His goal: to exploit the local tribes, spray some guts around, cash in on the gore-spattered 80s Italian cannibal craze.
But the pissed-off spirits of the island had other ideas. And before long, guts were squirting behind the scenes, as well. While the camera kept rolling...
Tribesmen is Adam Cesare's blistering tribute to Cannibal Holocaust and Lucio Fulci: a no-bull glimpse into grindhouse filmmaking, stuffed inside a rocket of tropical non-stop mayhem.

The story is very well written and entertaining. Narration is ambitious and well done. With so many different characters from all over the globe Mr. Hempel had his work cut out for him. using the characterization by Cesare he was able to create a very enjoyable audiobook.
I love audio books.
I love horror books in a huge way but I don't often like silly horror stories. However, this one was a real winner. From top to bottom it was ridiculous, hilarious, spooky and plain pure fun. The story is good and the performance is pitch perfect. Would recommend!

This is the story of a film crew traveling to a tropical island to make an Italian horror movie. The book is just under three hours and this did not allow for great character development. There are two women in the crew and I had issues at some points discerning who the narrator was referring too. I think it was an interesting group of people, and I would have enjoyed to have more of a backstory.
Things at the island rapidly start to go south. I enjoyed the gore, but again, I felt I was missing something of the story. The dare situations felt real though, and it was like I could watch the characters running through the jungle.
All was related to the curse that was introduced at the beginning of the book, but I would have appreciated more background information or some development on that since it was not explained and left at the reader's interpretation.
Joe Hempel did, as usual, a fantastic narration and character interpretation. This is not my usual book style, but I decided to listen to it because of Hempel. I think I would read anything he narrates.
I enjoyed the book but I would have preferred it have it developed into a longer story with more complex characters.
They all were
He pulled it off beautifully.

Tribesmen was the second book I have read from this author. It was a perfect bite size serving of horror, and easy to finish in one sitting. The story starts off right away. We are given just enough world building to set the story up quickly, and I loved that. With a fast pace, and non stop action, this book had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. It definitely had an 80's horror movie feel to it. Joe Hempel was the narrator of the audiobook, and was perfect as usual. He does such an amazing job, and I can easily picture everything in my mind when he is speaking. He has quickly become one of my favorite narrators! I really enjoyed this audiobook, and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves horror of any kind. I am eager to check out more of the author's work. This author/narrator duo is a great combination, and I hope they collaborate again in the future!

I liked the ending where he was trying to pay the check then their was disscussion about waiting to claim it.
Good infliction of the different characters voices.
Everything will be ok, promise.

This is an enjoyable quick horror listen but enjoyed his book Zero Lives more. The narrator was great in both books and holds your interest. Stars beware what film you sign on for! Worth listening too. This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom. Thank you!

This novella introduces us to a small group of filmmakers travelling to a Caribbean island to shoot a shocksploitation film à la Cannibal Holocaust. Mayhem ensues.
I will not spoil anything but this is neither for kids nor is it a splatter-punk gross-out fest. It’s a tight little story well-told in the style of a good Tales From the Crypt or Deadtime Stories tale.
The narration is on point as well. The production is clean and Joe Hempel’s characterizations are perfect for the fairly stereotypical characters (which is the point).
** full disclosure: although this audiobook was given to me by the narrator at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom, I would have been happy to have bought it.
I think it’s well worth your time and money.
Good narration. Immediately like able and dis likable characters. Stereotypes are classic 80's B horror movie ones. Weird mystical cannibals meet crappy film maker meets deserted island meets ghosts, possessions, drugs and violence. Well played.

I am brutally honest. Popular, love everything they read, reviewers are scared to go neg. and risk their ranking. It's your money!!!
I am a big fan of B Horror movies, especially those with big breasted females. I don't think Adam Cesare is ready for prime time yet. There were hints of bloody goodness, but it just did not all come together well. He has got the gore down and the titillation, but not the intensity or drama. SHE WAS GOING TO BE TORTURED AND MUTILATED BY AN IDIOT. The narrator is only so-so, but for a low budget novella, probably the best a new author can get. THERE'S NO GOING BACK FROM DEAD.
