That is what it is about

A group of young activists set out to save not only the Amazon jungle and with it the entire world, but also a virtually untouched indigenous tribe. They chain themselves to trees and tweet like there's no tomorrow to stop the clearing. With success! The joy comes to an abrupt end when they find themselves in the clutches of the natives after a plane crash. Instead of thanks for their commitment, they only show an appetite for the activists' fresh meat.

What you should know

The enfant terrible of horror pop culture is back in the director's chair and picks up where he left off in his heyday. In doing so, he mixes his previous crimes against good film taste into a wild potpourri of CABIN FEVER and HOSTEL. Eli Roth bows to the cannibal movie wave of the 1970s and 80s and skillfully celebrates it with quotes, humour and plenty of splatter. Once again, many will turn away in disgust while others enjoy the cinema with a broad grin.

After a nomination for the Student Academy Award in the mid-1990s for his short film homage to Tarantino, Eli Roth became one of the most controversial filmmakers in pop culture with CABIN FEVER. With HOSTEL he once again shocked critics and viewers by founding the film wave defamed with the term "torture porn". In the process, the taboo-free intelligence with which Roth directed his films went unnoticed. Roth is one of the most influential directors of the last 15 years.
