Trivia

Eli Roth would only audition actors who agreed to be vaccinated for yellow fever and to film deep in the Amazonian jungle with no bathrooms, surrounded by tarantulas, snakes and poisonous frogs that could kill you on contact. After filming was completed, the cast and crew were treated for parasites. See more »

Goofs

After chopping off Jonah's arm and then proceeding to cut off the rest of his limbs, the first chop would have severed an artery having him bleed out in seconds. Not long enough to stay alive for all four limbs to be chopped off. Once dead there would not be any blood pressure to fill a bowl. See more »

Quotes

Alejandro: You're a hero.
Justine: You were going to let them kill me.
Alejandro: You knew the risks.
Justine: Yeah. I just didn't know the the biggest one was you.

Actually kind of disappointing after years of being built up
25 September 2015 | by See 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!
