A New York anthropologist, named Professor Harold Moore (Robert Kerman), travels to the wild, inhospitable jungles of South American with two local guides to find out what happened to a documentary film crew which disappeared nearly a year earlier while traveling into the same jungle, called the 'Green Inferno' to film a documentary about reputed cannibal tribes. After a long search and encountering a few primitive tribes, Professor Moore finds the remains of the crew and several reels of their undeveloped film. Upon returning to the USA, Professor Moore views the film in detail featuring the travels of the director Alan Yates (Gabriel York), his assistant Faye Daniels (Francesa Ciardi), and cameramen Jack Anders (Perry Pirkanen) and Mark Tomaso (Luca Giorgio Barbareschi) venturing into the jungles where the inexperienced, street-wise film group, after finding the indigenous tribes to docile for their film, decide to push them for kicks, with drastic consequences. This movie, for everyone who has heard of this now mythical piece of cinematic history, has been called one of the most (if not THE most) controversial and sickening movies ever made. It has been banned in too many countries to list here, and has been even more heavily censored where it was actually allowed to be screened (few and far between). Many who've experienced the sheer unforgiving brutality of this movie has often felt severe nausea and a feeling of guilt/depression, so it's definitely a movie you HAVE to prepare yourself for. Featuring actual Animal Slaughter, brutal gore and the like, It's not hard to see what the fess has always been about. Check it out if you dare.


After a chemical leak at the Hope Centre in Papua New Guinea (an organisation devoted to feeding underdeveloped countries) turns its staff into flesh-eating zombies, a four-man commando squad led by Mike London are sent to investigate. They run into a TV news crew led by celebrity reporter Lea, who are after the same story, but when they discover that the entire country has been overrun by zombies, what are the chances of them getting the message across? I know people seem to give this movie a lot of shit, and for what? Sure, while is certainly isn't the greatest zombie movie ever made it definitely not the worst. I mean, I've seen major Hollywood zombie movies with crazy effects and bigger budgets that suck WAY more than this movie. It has an awesome soundtrack (and so what if it is what Goblin used for other movies), mediocre effects and acting, but it has a lot of heart and the stock footage it uses (another reason why people seem to give it so much shit) seems to add another level to it, I really enjoy seeing footage of actual tribes in New Guinea that they tie in with the movie, its cool. So bottom line is this, this movie might not go down as one of the greatest zombie movies of all time, but it should go down as a movie that delivers on what it promises, and that's a good, gory, cheesy time.
