Waif's Cannes-ibal Film #2: The Green Inferno (2014)
A contemporary follow-up to last week's cannibal classic. Let us know how Eli Roth's tribute measures up!
From Curator Stephanie Shaffir:
The Green Inferno is Eli Roth’s love letter not only to Cannibal Holocaust, but also to all cannibal movies from the “cannibal film boom” of the 1970s/80s. If you are in the mood for a double feature, I would strongly recommend watching this in tandem with Cannibal Holocaust. This time we follow a group of activists to what is presumably the same cannibal-riddled area of the rainforest where they are captured by, you guessed it, a cannibal tribe! I realize my summary may be making you think this look like a repeat of Cannibal Holocaust with the same recipe and ingredients -- but if it’s not broken, don’t fix it! I promise this movie has its own original story that I personally would find interesting enough to watch even if it were not for Eli Roth’s signature knack for taking on-screen violence too far and then a whole lot further.
