October Horror Movie Challenge - The Green Inferno (2013)

Synopsis: Justine wants to do good and change the world so she travels to the Amazon with a group of social activists. Unfortunately her plane goes down in the forest and she and her friends are captured by a tribe of cannibals. 

The Good: The scenery is beautiful. Ramon Llao looked great as the head cannibal (or bald hunter as IMDB credits him). He was seriously creepy as hell.

The Bad: I really didn't care for most of the characters and they were all just sort of nameless victims. 

Final Thoughts: This was my first cannibal tribe flick. Not really sure the subgenre is for me, but I guess I can see why some folks dig it. I will say it has a good "uninformed activism is harmful" moral.

In Your Game: If you want a fun adventure with cannibal tribes I wholeheartedly recommend Battle for the Purple Islands. You can read my review of it here. Here are cannibal tribe member stats for Swords & Wizardry Light and my new slasher hack for it Slashers and Victims Light (which will drop Friday the 13th).

Cannibal Tribesman

AC 8 [11]      HD: 1+1    Attacks: Weapon (1d6) or Blowgun (1+ see below, range 20') Move: 12

The tribesmen all have 1d3 poisoned blowgun darts. Anyone hit by one of these must make a saving throw or fall asleep as if affected by the Sleep spell.

  1. Yep, that was a definite influence. Thanks, hoss! Also, characters in horror movies are usually thinly drawn and repellent. Goes with the territory.

  2. Great start! I am not a fan of cannibal movies myself but I have been meaning to check this one out.
