When it comes to the violence in The Green Inferno, it somehow manages to trump everything Roth has done to date. The film is one of the goriest and most brutal to be seen in an American genre film in sometime…and yes, I’ve seen the Evil Dead remake. While that film is bloodier, there’s a sense of fun when this is all happening. Not always in the case of The Green Inferno. KNB EFX work is easily some of their most realistic and shocking to date. Gorehounds will no doubt cheer as I did by the spectacular showmanship on display yet at the same time, your jaw will drop in horror by the unflinching savagery rained down upon the characters we’ve invested ourselves in. This juxtaposition of emotions is the film’s strongest achievement.
