I always thought of Eli Roth as my Spirit animal haha. Because one of the first horror movies that I have watched and loved as a child was Cabin Fever, and since then my love for Gore and torture porn started. One of my life goals is to meet him in person because it would be fun and interesting, two horror enthusiast exchanging banter I hope he doesnt think I am boring and creepy when that time comes though, we also have the same energy level hahaha. Anyway, I know the Green Inferno was released months ago but I only got to watch it earlier because I had to wait for an hd copy of it online. And although it received an average rating on IMDb, I still have to say that I enjoyed it as an Eli Roth fan, because all of the elements that make it an Eli Roth masterpiece is there, the gore, the torture scenes and of course his lovely wife. The blonde girl who is Justine’s room mate is kinda off putting, her acting is terrible the blank face? I mean come on. Most of the actors to be honest, their acting are “porn quality” there are some scenes in the movie where I laughed my ass off like that one where the blonde girl (who has panic attacks) had explosive diarrhea on the pig pen and that other scene where that douchebag (who acted as the leader of the group) jacked off, I know he’s under alot of stress but fapping when there’s a dead girl in front of you and her throat is slit? dude come on have some respect.
The scene where they stuffed a bag of pot in the dead girl, was amusing because as expected when the tribe found her, they roasted her and as a result the tribe got baked off marijuana, the scene showed them laughing, and poking each other. Then later they got the munchies and munched on that other white guy hahahaha. It’s also an intense movie, the type where it will keep you biting your nails, especially that scene where this Jacksparrow looking Elder of the tribe (she does look like him tho, well her get up at least) almost mutilated Justine’s vagina, seriously her body was covered in white shit and she was naked, that made my legs cross tightly because the hook that was to be used looked filthy, and the thought of having your poonany getting sliced and shit like that, come on board to the nope train with me ladies, there are still plenty of seats left hahaha. I also liked it because it made fun of all those social justice warriors who go hashtag frenzy on any social media platform, who I think doesnt really care/know enough about the purpose of the thing they are fighting for, they just want to appear as if they do…for example #Kony2012 remember that?
I’ll give it a 7/10 rating because I did enjoy watching it, but I dont think i’ll recommend it because I dont think most people will like it, it is not for the faint of heart, but if you are a fan of Eli Roth’s work then go for it! It did remind me of Cannibal Holocaust a lot, but Cannibal Holocaust is much more better (of course) but it is a great homage to 70’s cannibal flicks. I hated the ending though, and I am waiting for a sequel hahaha.
