THE GREEN INFERNO

THE GREEN INFERNO - The Green Inferno, directed by Eli Roth, was inspired by the 1980 Italian film entitled Holocausto Canibal. Stephen King tweeted a glowing response to the film, stating it was “hard to watch, but you can’t look away”. Roth is known for directing horror films such as Hostel, Hostel II and Cabin Fever. Hostel is one of my personal favorites in the horror film genre. It showcased a flawed main character you can root for, who is put into a dangerous scenario, and is able to fight his way back to freedom. While Green Inferno uses some of the same structural conventions, the impact is less effective and nowhere near as original. However, I did enjoy it and do recommend watching this film. Keep in mind it is very violent, politically incorrect and should not be seen by anybody with a sensitive disposition. Be warned, and, stay out of the jungle!

  1. I don't watch horror and the images alone are too disturbing for me.

  2. I'm quite a whimp when it comes to gore and horror. I appreciate that it is an art in its own right, though. This seems very effective!

  3. I dig horror, but find much of it today is just lacking in, well, everything. Although the Darkness coming soon looks good.

  4. Graphic horror doesn't appeal to me. Stephen King is about as horror as I can tolerate.

  5. I do enjoy horror in short stories, though. You get a quick blast of it and then you can start breathing again.

  6. Interesting post. Film is a fascinating medium for art. I like the way you merge the two.

  7. I just can't stomach horror. To each their own, though.
