Directed by Eli Roth this cannibalistic film is raunchy by nature no pun intended the fact I found about the film is it was Co produced by none other than Paranormal Activities Jason Bloom sounds great?
So it starts out with a group of student activists traveling to the Amazon to save the rain forest and soon discovering that they are not alone, and that no good deed goes unpunished. You have Your classic rich UN officials Daughter Justine whose daddy I remember played in an early 90s TV show called The Sentinal, anyways we see her slightly crush on the Student activist leader Alejandro who once they get to the amazons we find out his true colors and ultimately becomes the most hated character in the style of Cannibal Ferox and Cannibal Holocaust I found myself disappointed in the gore factor and nudity I expected more of Mr. Roth though the ripping apart of the fat friend who incited Miss Richy, to the group to begin with was graphic the and the digging of the eyes out with bones was gruesome and the ripping apart of the first body but I still feel the level of the gore could have been hightened.
On a lighter note I found the film’s comedy more amusing than anything else like one girls over exaggerated crap in a corner, the tarantula crawling on the penis of the comic relief character of the group but the camera could have shown it in its own grotesque way instead of panning away and you hearing his screams instead. To me when the women could have been more violently stripped and tortured longer to have that lasting effect instead you see almost no total nudity I’m sorry maybe I’m a male but if I were to make a movie such as this I would totally want to be the one looking away going ewe but I didn’t and I have before.
Sitting back thinking about it I feel it could have been better and gored muchmore but I enjoyed it more or less. Is it everyone’s cup of tea? Maybe not but I’m kinda on the fence on this one I guess I’ve seen worse much better?
