Most of the time, you know exactly what you’re going to get from a horror movie revolving around cannibalism. Similarly, seeing Eli Roth’s name attached as a director lets you know that you’ll need a strong stomach to pull through. Put the two together, and the green hell delivery on both fronts.
To its credit, though, the godfather of torture porn at least tries to inject some satire into the proceedings, even if it misses the mark by about a country mile. A bright-eyed college student crosses the path of a fellow student and activist when he goes on a hunger strike to support the underpaid janitors at his college. Given the content of the film, the foreshadowing is as subtle as a sledgehammer to the face.
Immediately after deciding that the next step above the financial remuneration of the cleanup is to save the entire world, the intrepid couple heads to the Amazon. Of course, once their plane crashes in the remote Peruvian jungle and the traveling do-gooders find themselves taken hostage by a tribe of very hungry locals, all decisions are immediately regretted.
Look at, the green hell It contains absolutely nothing amazing when you consider the concept and the creative team behind it, which should be more than enough for you to decide if it’s worth watching or not. Prime Video subscribers have responded in the affirmative, it should be noted, and the gruesome story has crept into the platform’s most-viewed charts this weekend, according to FlixPatrol. Just maybe avoid it between meals.
