SCAVENGERS casts Kenneth David Gilman as Tom Reed, an American ornithologist with a passion for vultures; reporter Brenda Bakke is Kimberly, his former girl friend and next-door neighbor. A priest pursued by a KGB agent stuffs into Reed's mailbox evidence linking the CIA and the KGB in

dope smuggling. Reed is mistaken for an agent, the "Vulture Man," and soon he and Kimberly are in Africa, chased by Russian agents and African drug runners. After this initial setup, the film settles down for one long chase sequence, with Reed and Kimberly escaping time and time again in

predictable fashion. Shot in Zimbabwe, SCAVENGERS hinges on an unbelievable plot and is played mainly for laughs. Like many recent B pictures, the aptly named SCAVENGERS is little more than a low-budget copy of Hollywood's financially successful big-budget films. The little credibility created by

Bakke and Gilman is quickly forgotten.
