Why do I do this to myself?
Yeah I am hungry for more cannibal movies… well, I saw Cannibal Holocaust and I actually liked it, so I wanted to see the newest film in this genre of horror, Green Inferno, which takes some of the same plot points, but it is fair to say that this is it’s own film.
What’s bad is the writing. The dialog.
It looks pretty, they put money into the shots, I’ll never say anything bad about that, but it’s just visual and again no substance.
And then Eli adds these horrible comedic moments that just aren’t funny. The same jokes that are in a bad 80s movie, and it’s still not funny man. You are killing me (not in a good way).
Seriously? A tribe that chews coca leaves regularly to get a high is going to lose consciousness from some weed? I’m not an expert on the chemistry, but it’s cheesy things like this that Roth uses to no effect. I mean, if he was going for something bad then he succeeded, but I don’t get the feeling he’s trying for that.
Anyways, it’s a bad film, If you like the colors red and green I’d say see the film, they did a great job in post with the filters and color correction, other than that, don’t bother.
