The Green Inferno - Eli Roth Returns Print E-mail

Ironically when reviewing "Welcome to the Jungle," I stated that my Horror Soulmate had lamented the lack of cannibal movies.  Since the fade out of the Italian horror machine, cannibal-in-the-jungle creations are few and far between.

I guess Eli ("Hostel") Roth was thinking the same before us because here comes "
The Green Inferno."  According to reviews this one is a return to the feel of the old human munching native tribes we all miss (the above mentioned "Welcome to the Jungle" came close).  So to quote Eli himself in issue 156 of The Darkside magazine: “Well I'm a big fan of "Cannibal Holocaust" and of that entire short-lived Italian cannibal genre...” He continues, “… we went to a village in Peru that had remained uncontacted by the outside world.  They had no idea what we were doing -- they hadn't seen movie crews or even seen a movie.

The storyline is basic but so was every single retro cannibal flick wasn't it?  Screen Crush says: “"
The Green Inferno" follows a group of college activists who travel to a Peruvian jungle to stop a corporation from bulldozing the land and evicting the native tribes from their homes. Led by a Che Guevara wannabe named Alejandro (Ariel Levy), the group -- along with their newest recruit and our protagonist, Justine (Lorenza Izzo) -- protests the destruction by chaining themselves to the trees and using their cell phones to stream the encroaching destroyers over the internet.  It’s a successful mission until the students’ plane crashes on the way out of the jungle, stranding them with a group of cannibalistic natives. We get the idea.

Eli Roth we salute your nasty mind.
