Synopsis

NYU freshman Justine (Lorenza Izzo), whose father works at the United Nations, joins a group of campus radicals on a trip to the Amazon jungle, in an effort to put a halt to the illegal clear-cutting that endangers the tranquil lives of an isolated Amazonian tribe.

They fly to Peru and immediately get to work, tying themselves to trees and bulldozers and live-streaming themselves via their cellphones. They seemingly succeed in their mission, but their celebration quickly turns to tragedy when their plane crashes in the jungle. They're quickly captured by the very people they were trying to protect—cannibals who engage in ritual dismemberment before eating their captives.

  • 1 star "Terrible movie"
  • 4 stars "Fun movie"
  • 1 star "Uninspired retread of the Italian made cannibal flicks of the late 70s/early 80s. Sunk by poor direction, lousy writing, unsympathetic characters, and bad acting. Lead actress Lorenza Izzo is particularly bad. She goes through the whole movie with the same one-size-fits-all facial expression. Much of the dialogue is unintelligible because of characters with thick accents and actors mumbling their lines. Another loser from horror hack Eli Roth."
