BEWARE THE MOON REVIEWS
Now, I have been looking forward to seeing this film ever since it first came out, I just love gore and it's Eli Roth - OF COURSE IT IS GOING TO BE GORY. I was not disappointed... 'A group of student activists travels to the Amazon to save the rain forest and soon discover that they are not alone, and that no good deed goes unpunished.'
Since seeing the trailer for The Green Inferno and hearing about it - I had wanted to see it. I love Eli Roth, and I love Hostel and I love gore. I was pretty sure I was going to love this, and I pretty much did! It really builds it up for you, like you know what this film is about, you know people are going to get killed and maybe eaten in awful ways, its coming - but when, that's the thing you don't know.
The trailer also doesn't show it all, which I love, showing all of a film in the trailer is a bad move, bad move, people! The Green Inferno is good and does not do that, (but depending on how much you want to know, you might want to skip this paragraph and go to the next one because I am going to say why..), what you don't see is that they don't immediately land where they meet the tribe.
They start off by chaining themselves to trees to save a rainforest with the main girl almost being killed already... Good start guys!
After that, is the big crash, and that is when it hits the fan, and boy, it hits it. Before the plane has even landed, people are dying, falling out, being impaled all sorts, that's before the tribe has even arrived. And do the tribe make an entrance! My god, it's like Emperor Kuzco when he first enters the palace. "Boom, baby!". They know how to make an entrance, with all their darts and sword type of things, it's something to get the heart going for sure. After this scene, this film just gets better. Like, I was in weird gory cannibal heaven with this.. That's weird isn't it...
The Green Inferno is very similar to Cannibal Holocaust, story wise anyway. Like a group of people go to another place miles from them, and bump into a very very scary tribe - just FYI, not all tribes are like this! I am sure some are lovely.
The Green Inferno is a lot better than Cannibal Holocaust though, there are no real deaths in this, and no animals were killed, woohoo, it is also a lot more fun, it's more updated and more realistic. I would just watch this one over Cannibal Holocaust without even thinking about it really.
I did have to laugh at some points in this though, I mean, one place was because the group had SUCH a clever idea to do with weed, and I laughed out of basically giving them a pat on the back - that make sense?! The other part was when one of them had a wee bit of an upset stomach...that had to be emptied in the cage that they were all being held in. I have an awful sense of humour, so I found this pretty entertaining, I am a fan of Fat Bastard from Austin Powers - that must give you some clue. And the other includes a lake and a similar scene to the puddle scene from The Vicar of Dibley...please say someone knows what I am on about?! Pleaseeeeeeeeeee!
This review is getting longggg, and it is late and Love Island is coming to an end, so I shall end this before it turns into an essay.
The Green Inferno is a great film, it's gory, it's action, it's just an all round simple as hell film. You know what you're getting and that's that. Brilliant. Highly recommend it. It's just fun. Unless you have a faint heart/weak stomach, you might want to hold on to your seat...
Do this instead of Cannibal Holocaust if you want a film like this. This one!
Watching horror films since like 2003, when I could stand dead bodies..
