Goofs

As Kara is walking away after helping Justine chain herself to a tree, her face mask is on her arm; seconds later it's hanging on her neck and she is proceeding to put it on. All the while Justine is calling her name because her lock isn't working, then Justine appears struggling, then back to Kara getting her cell phone out of her pocket, but the mask seems to have disappeared, then it goes back to Justine, again still struggling with her lock, then back to Kara holding her cell phone up and magically her mask is back on her face. All this in a matter of seconds. See more »

Alternate Versions

In Singapore, the film was edited before it could be approved for release with an R21 rating. The distributor was made to remove an instance of strong graphic violence which the board felt was gratuitous; the scene in question occurs as the natives hold a man down and torture him cracking open his skull, removing his tongue and limbs, gouging his eyes out and severing his limbs. Without these cuts the film would have been refused classification. See more »

Actually kind of disappointing after years of being built up
25 September 2015 | by MattBirkSee all my reviews

If Eli Roth is known for one thing, it's that he is known for high levels of violence in his films and pushing the envelope. And The Green Inferno is no exception, it's easily the most graphic movie of the year to receive a theatrical release. The movie features some extremely cringe-worthy scenes where the villages show no mercy to the young students. Of course, this is the focal point of the movie, the gore/torture of these somewhat arrogant, twenty somethings.

Yes, there is some social commentary in the movie, mostly poking fun at today's society and how everyone wants to 'appear' to be fighting for a cause when in fact, they are doing very little. And yes, he has a point here, but it isn't as thought provoking as he wants it to be, especially once the carnage starts and those ideas fly out the window. Only for those ideas to awkwardly return at the end of the movie.

There is not much to say about this movie other than the obvious, it's extremely violent, nothing more nothing less. The Green Inferno is obviously a homage to those 80s cannibalistic horror movies. Which means the body count is high and the foreigners are going to be punished by the natives in some of the most cruel ways imaginable (at least since the SAW series). But I can't help but feel a bit letdown after years of build up with the movie being stuck in release hell.

While The Green Inferno isn't on par with other strong horror contenders for best horror movie of 2015, it is easily the nastiest, most violent movie of the year. Thus, if the torture-porn genre is your cup of tea, then look no further, you've found your next fix!
