THE GREEN INFERNO
World Sales: Wild Side Films
A group of student activists from New York travel to Peru to block an oil company, which is about to wipe out an indigenous tribe through deforestation. On the way home, their plane crashes in the Amazonian jungle. The survivors must confront many dangers, above all a tribe of cannibals.
Eli Roth pays tribute to the Italian 70s and 80s cannibal films, in particular Ruggero Deodato’s Cannibal Holocaust. After Roth’s Hostel films, he once again casts a critical and ironic eye on Western society and its humanitarian “good consciousness” in this horror film well-endowed with gore.
