Consensus: The Green Inferno may not win writer-director Eli Roth many new converts, but fans of his flair for gory spectacle should find it a suitably gruesome diversion.

An ode to the cannibalistic Umberto Lenzi flicks of the 70's, Roth botches his comeback after a nearly 7-year hiatus. A plane crash is a thriftily staged… More

Fun for whole family - but only if it's the Manson Family - Eli Roth's gross but oftentimes scary exercise in cannibal horror runs the movie gamut… More
