“New York college student Justine (Lorenza Izzo) meets student activist Alejandro (Ariel Levy) when he goes on a hunger strike on behalf of underpaid janitors. Smitten, she agrees to help Alejandro undertake his next project: rescuing an Amazon village from destruction by a greedy multinational corporation. But Justine soon comes to regret her decision when their plane crashes in the Peruvian jungle and the students realize they are not alone. No good deed goes unpunished as the well-meaning students are captured by the cannibalistic tribe they came to save.”
The Green Inferno was previously reviewed by Pop-Break’s own Tommy Tracy (you can read that here) who was not horribly impressed by the lack of gore. I, on the other hand, have always had a weak spot in my stomach for Eli Roth’s gore. While The Green Inferno is no Cannibal Holocaust, it stands up as a solid cannibal film.
As I get older, I have a harder time stomaching extreme gore and, as I have never been able to handle cannibal films, my view on the film may be biased. If you are a gore hound, The Green Inferno is for you. Those of you who cannot handle the gore as well, may want to sit this one out.
Now, for those of you who plan to purchase (or enter to win) this film, it is lacking in bonus features. The only feature included is a feature commentary with Eli Roth, producer Nicolas Lopez and stars Lorenza Izzo, Aaron Burns, Kirby Bliss Blanton and Daryl Sabara.
Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno comes to us from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment on DVD/Blu Ray and Digital HD on January 5.
