My my, what a complicated world the movie business is. For those not in the know, this Eli Roth film was originally finished in 2013 with a release later that year. However, the God of Film Distribution is a tricky fella, causing the bankruptcy of not one but TWO companies that had originally planned to release. Long story short, Blumhouse would come riding in two years later and this flick that festival-goers have been talking about has finally seen the light of day. So, was it worth the wait? Well...umm...sorta.
So at the end of the day we're left with a film that's just good, not great, and really much more of a respectful love letter than the cannibal film really deserves. I give The Green Inferno 7 out of 10 CGI ants that look hilariously better than the ants in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
