The Green Inferno and the slightly edited poster in this review are owned by Universal Pictures
Directed by Eli Roth
Green Inferno may be the worst movie that I have ever seen in my life. I’m never felt so emotionally drained and damaged coming out of a movie. I don’t know who the target audience is for this movie, but I do hope that they don’t like this movie either because I just can’t see the appeal of this outside of some really cynical theories. Is it that people just want blood and guts? Well I like blood and guts too, but I certainly didn’t like it in here. Is it the fact that everyone in the movie is either a terrified victim or an irredeemable monster? I’ve seen lots of horror movies where that’s the case, and while I think the genre needs to outgrow that dynamic (it’s boring more than anything else) it was done to a level here that feels damn near pornographic or, perhaps more appropriately, sadistic.
