| Unoriginal and Stupid
In New York, the college student Justine (Lorenza Izzo) joins a group of activists led by Alejandro (Ariel Levy) and he invites her to travel to Peru to protest against a timber industry that is destroying the Amazon rain forest. The group uses their cellphones to film the destruction and send the footages through Internet. Alejandro uses Justine that is almost killed by one security guard to succeed in his intent of calling attention of audiences. When the group is returning to civilization, the plane blows-up and crashes into the forest. Soon the survivors discover that they are not alone and they are abduct by a tribe of Indians. But their nightmare becomes worse when they realize that the Indians are cannibals.

"The Green Inferno" is an unoriginal and stupid film of cannibals by Eli Roth. The story is not well-written and Justine joining the group of activists is totally unconvincing. The conclusion is awful. There are at least two better movies about cannibals: "Cannibal Holocaust" is extremely realistic, disturbing, cruel and sick, and Eli Roth did not dare to depict such violence; and "Cannibal Ferox" that is also realistic and cruel. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Canibais" ("Cannibals")

Critic Reviews

Did You Know?


Eli Roth like his renowned film writer/director companion Quentin Tarantino writes and directs films that in themselves are love notes to other films, Roth however particularly boasting a filmography of horror films. Roth's Cabin Fever (2002) an ode to Sam Raimi's The Evil Dead (1981) and John Boorman's Deliverance (1972), Hostel I (2005) & II (2007) an ode to Juan López Moctezuma's House of Madness (1973) & Alain Robbe-Grillet's Eden and After (1970). The Green Inferno an ode to Ruggero Deodato's Cannibal Holocaust (1980) and Umberto Lenzi's Cannibal Ferox (1981).


Daniel: You know what this is? You know what they're doing to us?


In the small plane, when Alejandro introduces the guide to the members of the group, he has alternatively his left or right arm on the guide's shoulder.

Crazy Credits

The director, Eli Roth, is also credited as 'Hand Double for Mr. Sabara'

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.
