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

Never once, in a million years, would I have ever said that M. Night Shyamalan, in 2015, would've made a better horror movie than Eli Roth. But alas today… More
