These were suicides: Dante spoke to one after seeing a broken twig bleed. It's a feast for gorehounds, one with an unsubtle message about the way that uninformed activism harms more than it helps.

In the eighth pouch, fraudulent counselors were aflame. One of them predicted political misfortune for Dante.
The Green Inferno never lets up: it barrels ahead, exuberant and relentless in its brutality, never giving the audience a second to unclench.
