Hello Horror Lovers!

My apologies for not posting in about three weeks! I have been very busy with school, work, etc., so unfortunately I have been forgetting to post! I was also unable to get into my account for some reason for the past few days, that should be fixed now though.

I recently watched Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno, and enjoyed it quite a bit. It’s about a group of college students who travel across the globe to save the land where a Native tribe live from construction crews, and their plane ends up crashing and those who survive the crash are taken by the tribe. The tribe are cannibals so the students try to escape with their lives. There is a lot of gore, cannibalism, gross bodily fluids and nudity in the film so it is not for the faint of heart. I had been waiting to see the film for well over a year and knew a lot about it so I felt fully prepared, but I’m sure other people were shocked by the movie. I enjoyed it though, and would recommend it to anyone who isn’t bothered by cannibalism, gore or very intense films.

I watched Hostel all the way through for the first time recently. Hostel was released in 2005 and stars Jay Hernandez and Derek Richardson. It is about three backpackers who head to Slovakia for a good time. They check into a hostel, meet some local girls, and have some fun until one of the three disappears. The other two worry at first, but eventually believe he’s out having a good time.. they don’t realize that he’s dead, and soon they may be too.

It was written and directed by Eli Roth, so I was weary about watching the film at first, because I didn’t like a few other films he’s been a part of. I was actually surprised by Hostel. The first half hour or so of this 94 minute film is rather slow and filled with way too much nudity, which I didn’t like at all and don’t think was necessary, so that was disappointing. I decided to continue on watching the film, in hopes that it would get better, and while there are other times throughout the film that are also slow, it did get better. There was much less gore than I was expecting (I was actually a bit disappointed that there wasn’t more gore, seeing as it’s Eli Roth), but it was gross at times (there is vomiting which is rather gross to see lol). The characters in the film are not the greatest, but everyone gets what they deserve, whether that is good or bad. There are a few moments of suspense, which I appreciated, and the ending is actually pretty good, and surprised me, which can be difficult for a horror movie to do. Overall, if you can get past all of the slow moments and stupid nudity in the beginning, not to mention the stupid-ness of some of the characters, it’s not a bad film. I would give Hostel a 6.5 out of 10. It’s not great, but it’s alright.

Hello horror lovers,

I mentioned yesterday that I want to see Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno, so I thought I should post a few links so you can find out more about the film!

I am waiting to hear whether the film is being pushed back to be released in theatres, or if the film will only be released on dvd. Let me know what you think!

 

I really want to see Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno when it comes out! I know, being an Eli Roth film means that it could be not only super intense, but also intensely bad, but I really, really want to see it! Originally it was to be released on September 5th, but I recently read that it’s been pushed back due to financial issues. Has anyone heard anything concrete about when it may come out? Does anyone else share my intrigue and interest in seeing the film?
