Storyline

A man named Pete gets a phone call from his friend, Jemma, who says she has evidence that a professor missing in the Amazon is still alive. Pete hires two men, Mark and Fred, to steal a plane and fly down to the jungle to meet with her. Once there, they meet with Jemma and head into the jungle. The group gets the help of a young native girl to take them to the legendary Imas tribe, the tribe in which the professor was said to be with. However, during their search for the Imas, they run into gold hunters, who are intent on killing the tribe and stealing their treasure. Now racing against the treasure seekers to reach the Imas, they also uncover another scandal in the jungle and try to shut them both down to save the local natives. Written by Helltopay27

Trivia

A real monkey is actually blow-darted in the film, resulting in 12 seconds being cut from the UK release. Despite this, however, there are no animal deaths, which is rare for an Italian-exploitation cannibal movie. See more »

Good stuff!
11 August 2003 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Antonio Climati's "The Green Inferno" is obviously inspired by Ruggero Deodato's unforgettable masterpiece "Cannibal Holocaust"(1979).Professor Koranz is missing so 4 individuals(one woman reporter and three guys)head off to the Amazon to search for him.They encounter fish that feed on the intestines of live humans,bat attacks,unfriendly headhunters,anacondas and more jungle horrors."The Green Inferno" is nothing special.It has some rather unpleasant scenes involving animals,but the amount of violence is extremely low.Still if you like Italian exploitation cinema give this obscure little flick a look.However fans of Antonio Climati's downright unpleasant mondo movies will be sorely disappointed.6 out of 10.
