The Green Inferno (2013) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
The Green Inferno (2013) is an American cannibal thriller horror movie that got its inspiration from Italian movie Cannibal Holocaust (1980). Director and co-writer Eli Roth (Grindhouse (2007), Cabin Fever (2002), Hostel (2005)) did an amazing job executing this astounding movie. Eli Roth’s movies are all alike, and it shows that he is a fan of the cannibal cinema. The Green Inferno contains a lot of gore (middle and ending scenes), off the chart violence, suspense, torture, nudity, bad language, bloody scenes, grisly, creepy remote atmosphere and disturbing.
Justine (Lorenza Izzo - Aftershock (2012), The Green Inferno (2013), Que pena tu boda (2011)) is a student at a college that is dating Alejandro (Ariel Levy - Promedio rojo (2004), La Sexóloga (2012), Aftershock (2012)) who is not what he seems to be. She decided to join her boyfriend and a group of students on campus on a trip from the United States to Peru. They hope that they can help the tribe in the rainforest by stopping the digging of natural gas by staging a protest and chaining themselves to bulldozers. Her boyfriend Alejandro is helping by doing mass tweets on Twitter to gain people’s attention and awareness of the matter. Justine trusts her boyfriend completely and does not see that he is betraying their team and is not trustworthy. Their plane experiences some kind of failure and crashes in the Peruvian jungle on their way back. An Amazonian cannibal tribe captures the survivors of the crash by drugging them and kept them as prisoners so they can be served as lunch. They tried their best to escape while Justine figures out that she is there for a purpose, and that is because of her virginity. The movie is definitely worth watching so watch it and see all that I will not tell you.
The makeup effects were amazingly well done, scenery was a magnificent treat for me, and the acting was good but not excellent. Eli Roth did a good job introducing us to the characters. This movie is for horror fans who have a strong stomach to watch people being skinned alive, tortured and eaten with a lot of blood everywhere. Eli Roth asked some natives from a secluded/remote village located near the Amazon river to be in his movie. The natives have never seen a movie before. Eli Roth showed them Cannibal Holocaust, and they enjoyed watching it and agreed to be in the movie.
A group of student activists travel from New York City to the Amazon to save the rainforest. However, once they arrive in this vast green landscape, they soon discover that they are not alone - and that no good deed goes unpunished. |
