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 »

"The Green Inferno" should please Eli Roth fans
26 September 2015 | by samgiannnSee all my reviews

A movie inspired by the ultra-violent 70's Italian cannibal movies seems perfect for a director like Eli Roth. If you're not a fan of his films already, this won't win you over, but if you his brutal, tongue-in-cheek horror, The Green Inferno is a perfectly serviceable gore-fest. The Green Inferno follows Justine, a freshman in college who joins a student activist group that plans to save the Amazon rain forest. But these guys aren't just all talk: they are going to go directly to a village in Peru to rescue it from impending bulldozers before the village is destroyed, and their mission is successful. They rejoice on the plane ride back home, but their celebration is short lived as the plane crashes somewhere in the vast sea of green. Soon enough, they are taken hostage by a cannibalistic tribe and must escape before they are turned into someone's next meal. Like Roth's previous films, The Green Inferno takes its time before unleashing hell on the victims. The crew doesn't actually encounter the cannibal tribe until about 45 minutes into the plot, so when the violence comes, it really packs a punch. You'll definitely want to finish your popcorn early. Unfortunately, the movie doesn't have much of a plot after the group gets captured, so a lot of it is focused on the gruesome death scenes. I have to give credit where it's due, though. There are some really hard to watch scenes in this, and that's exactly what this movie wants. However, what makes The Green Inferno not just your average torture porn flick is how stylish it is and some darkly funny writing. The humor does sometimes get a little unnecessary at times, but there are many times where I had a laugh with the movie. Mainstream audiences won't appreciate how it homages classic cannibal flicks, but Eli Roth fans should be satisfied with a suitably nasty descent into hell.
