The Green Inferno Reviews

  • thematically of a piece with the director's influential Hostel (2005) in its focus on the experience of clueless, meddling Americans abroad. Unfortunately it also shares with Hostel Roth's inability to settle on a consistent or compelling tone.

    Anton Bitel — Grolsch Film Works

  • A tongue in cheek movie only occasionally prepared to go all the way and have that tongue cut out.

    Ed Whitfield — The Ooh Tray

  • It never lets up: it barrels ahead, exuberant and relentless in its brutality, never giving the audience a second to unclench. It's a feast for gorehounds, one with an unsubtle message about the way that uninformed activism harms more than it helps.

    Meredith Borders — Badass Digest

  • Really quite fun. Up to a point.

    Chris Fyvie — The Skinny

  • The plot may sound fairly simplistic but underneath the blood and guts there's a biting satire about rich cosseted students signing up to causes they hardly understand.

    Henry Northmore — The List

  • Works as both a gut-punch horror film and a distressingly downbeat adventure story.

    Scott Weinberg — FEARnet

  • The Green Inferno receives a palpable shot in the arm from the characters' initial arrival into the tribe's primitive camp...

    David Nusair — Reel Film Reviews

  • A generally bad time at the movies, and the only significant payoff is a reinforced feeling that Eli Roth is terrified of anyone who isn't an upper-middle-class millennial.

    John Gholson — Cinematical

  • A blood-soaked ride into the jaws of Hell, but Inferno is too frivolous to score as nightmare material, finding Roth displaying habitual timidity when it comes to truly shocking encounters.

    Brian Orndorf —

  • Boy, Roth sure knows how to kill people. I mean, we knew that but it's been four movies now and he's coming up with innovative ways.

    Fred Topel — CraveOnline

  • It seems, ironically, much more amateurish than any of Roth's previous features, to the point where you start to wonder why he chose this as his comeback vehicle.

    Cory Everett — The Playlist

  • if you want an absolutely brutal experience that's tough to endure, just like CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST, this is probably the movie for you.

    Chris Bumbray — JoBlo's Movie Emporium

  • A very slow start threatens to derail The Green Inferno, but once the terror begins, it never lets up and Roth once again proves why he's a master of horror.
