That’s perhaps the best description I’ve ever seen of a movie since Japanese Zombie Horror Musial (The Happiness of the Katakuris). I am, of course, talking about The Green Inferno which is reminiscent of classics such as Cannibal Holocaust. Directed by horror genius Eli Roth, the movie is finally making its way to our shores after some funding and distribution difficulties. But does it look any good?
The story revolves around a group of activists who are travelling to the Amazon to save a tribe who is dying out. Only their plan crashes and they find that the very tribe they are going to save has murderous instincts and a taste for human flesh.
With the latest trailer feeling very akin to its relative Holocaust movie - the story will be bucket loads of gore and exploitation. Though the stigmatisation of hidden tribes has caused a bit of an outrage, you know that Roth’s work is going to focus on the ridiculousness of the white people saviour complex. Who knows? But the film could be generally enticing.
The Green Inferno hits cinemas later this year. Read our review from last year’s FrightFest now!
