“The Green Inferno” (2013)

I don’t think anyone’s going to be at all surprised by the content in this film. It’s Eli Roth. So naturally, there’s a lot of absolutely disgusting and horrific scenes of brutal, torturous killings. It does exactly what it sets out to do; be a love letter to the cannibal exploitation films of the 1980s. It’s not really that scary, mostly because I don’t find excessive gore all that scary. It’s engaging and entertaining enough for fans of gorefests, but not really anyone else. This is a perfectly serviceable, but ultimately unimpressive horror film. Still, I thought it was cool that Roth got a real indigenous South American tribe to play the role of the cannibals. And they seemed to really enjoy the experience.
