(2015) (Lorenza Izzo, Ariel Levy) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Horror: Student activists travel to Peru to stop the demolition of a rainforest and the destruction of a tribal village, only to be captured by cannibals.
- Justine (LORENZA IZZO) is a freshman college student looking for a good cause to support. She becomes enamored with Alejandro (ARIEL LEVY), the leader of a campus activist group who is planning to take a group of students to Peru and protest a multinational corporation's efforts to bulldoze acres of rainforest, forcefully remove a primitive tribe from its village, and mine the land for its energy reserves. Against her father (RICHARD BURGI) and roommate Kaycee's (SKY FERREIRA) objections, Justine agrees to go with the group on their risky crusade.
Joining them are Alejandro's girlfriend, Kara (IGNACIA ALLAMAND); his supportive friend and follower, Jonah (AARON BURNS); lesbian couple Samantha (MAGDA APANOWICZ) and Amy (KIRBY BLISS BLANTON); stoner Lars (DARYL SABARA); and tech expert Daniel (NICOLAS MARTINEZ). Bankrolled by a shady Peruvian entrepreneur named Carlos (MATIAS LOPEZ), the student-activists aim to chain themselves to the corporation's bulldozers to provoke a response from the armed militia the company has employed as protection, and then broadcast the ensuing confrontation live over the Internet.
On the flight out of Peru, the student-activists' plane crashes, and the survivors are immediately captured by the very tribe they came down there to protect. They soon learn that no good deed goes unpunished, and that the tribespeople are actually cannibals intent on killing and eating each of them.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- Older teenagers may have some interest due to its young cast and taboo subject matter.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
- For aberrant violence and torture, grisly disturbing images, brief graphic nudity, sexual content, language, and some drug use.
