Movie Review: ‘The Green Inferno’ Directed by Eli Roth
Oct 2015 01

Green Inferno PosterIt’s hard for me to find anything good to say about The Green Inferno, Eli Roth’s latest offering for horror fans.

In fact, the best thing I can say about the film is that I loved the trailer for Creed.

Roth claims this film is his ode to “Cannibal Holocaust,” a 1980 horror film which is considered a classic for it’s snuff film-like feel.

Maybe Roth is to blame or maybe it’s the MPAA, but for as much that was made of TGI’s gore and violence, I felt a bit shortchanged.

Viewers are treated to a dismemberment of one of the hippies, as well as a skinning, but other than that, it was rather tame.

Yes, there is more gore, but I really found myself not caring about any of the characters,as they are all hippie douchebag’s who will protest anything if it will get them notoriety.
Knowing that Roth got the idea for the film after Occupy Wall Street happened, intrigued me.

His premise was a good one, and the film could have been so much better if more time would have been invested in the characters.

The ending of the film completely sucked, as I felt like it just ended. There is also a very short scene which takes place mid-credits, but it doesn’t do anything to save this turd.
Roth is a talented director, as I look at him as a less talented, poor man’s Tarantino.

His debut, “Cabin Fever” remains a favorite of mine. “Hostel” keeps me from going to Europe to this day.

Roth knows horror and maybe the director’s cut of this film will be better, but the story is just, well, carved up, more than some of the victims in the film.

While the acting isn’t bad, it’s nothing to write home about.

All in all, I would save my money for Crimson Peak, or Knock, Knock. The latter is another Roth film starring Keanu Reeves, which looks promising.

I give The Green Inferno a D-

122: ‘Everest’ Starring Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, Jake Gyllenhaal
Oct 2015 01

everest movie posterWe’re talking Everest this week but what do we know about mountains? So we brought in some experts.

Brothers Mike & Steve Reardon have been to Everest. “Been to Everest” might be a bit of an understatement. They were making their way up the mountain when a 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Nepal. And it doesn’t take a rocket surgeon to know that Earthquake + Mountain = Avalanche. All told, over 9,000 people died and more than 23,000 were injured. Twenty-two people died on the mountain that day making it the deadliest day in the history of a deadly mountain.

And, as if they haven’t suffered enough, they’re now being subjected to our podcast. So you’ll get their story plus their take on the movie. And we’ll also give you our take too…for whatever that’s worth.

It’s an action-packed Reel Spoilers #122 – Everest.
