I recently watched The Green Inferno. Universal Pictures Home Entertainment sent me the Blu-ray for review. The Green Inferno is essentially the story of an environmental trip gone wrong. Some parts of the story were predictable and not very believable, but there is an unexpected twist in the story. Overall, I enjoyed the movie. The Green Inferno is available now on digital HD. It will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on January 5th. Continue reading to learn 5 things about the Blu-ray.
Five Things About The Green Inferno Blu-ray
No good deed goes unpunished
Justine is a freshman in college. She is intrigued by a student activist group and joins them on a mission to help stop new construction in the Amazon. After the group stops a greedy multinational corporation, their plane crashes in the Peruvian jungle. Some die in the crash while the rest of the group is captured by a scary tribe of natives.
The natives are not zombies, but they will still eat you
In an ironic twist, the tribe that captures the activists are the very same natives the students were trying to save. Some members of the team are darted with some sort of sleeping venom, while the rest are killed. Even worst is that the natives are cannibals, and they butcher their victims while they are still conscious.
Lorenza Izzo is the star
Lorenza Izzo plays the main character, Justine. I thought she was great — especially after seeing her in another film, Knock Knock. In Knock Knock, Lorenza’s character was the tormentor. In The Green Inferno, Lorenza plays the victim. She has excellent range. Other cast members include Ariel Levy (Alejandro), Daryl Sabara (Lars), Kirby Bliss Blanton (Amy), Magda Apanowicz (Samantha), Sky Ferreira (Kaycee), Nicolás Martínez (Daniel), Aaron Burns (Jonah), Ignacia Allamand (Kara), Ramón Llao (The Bald Headhunter), Richard Burgi (Charles), Matías López (Carlos), Antonieta Pari (village elder), Tatiana Panaifo (village girl), and Percy Chumbe (guard leader). The Green Inferno was directed by Eli Roth.
The movie is rated R
The Green Inferno is rated R for aberrant violence and torture, grisly disturbing images, brief graphic nudity, sexual content, language and some drug use.
The Green Inferno includes a bonus feature
The 101-minute movie includes the film on Blu-ray and digital HD. It also includes commentary with co-writer, director and producer Eli Roth, producer Nicolás López, and stars Lorenza Izzo, Aaron Burns, Kirby Bliss Blanton, and Daryl Sabara.
