THE GREEN INFERNO 
A pack of overly privileged university students attempt to save a section of the Amazon rain forest only to find themselves on the dinner menu of a tribe of colorful cannibals. It's a thinly veiled tribute to Cannibal Holocaust with a weakly taught lesson tossed into to make up for how distasteful the whole thing is. Sure it's disgusting and there's some squirm-worthy moments but I saw nothing I haven't seen on TV's The Walking Dead (Greg Nicotero's bloody FX work is showcased here too) and makes me wonder what all the fuss is about. Maybe I'm a little desensitized to the whole cannibalism thing after Bryan Fuller's take on Hannibal but this empty vessel really didn't do a whole lot for this gorehound looking to be truly shocked and disturbed.
