Eli Roth directed a horror movie. He returns with a vengeance with The Green Inferno, which was acquired by Open Road Films at last year's Toronto International Film Festival.
And if you thought Roth couldn't top Cabin Fever and the Hostel films, think again -- this one's about cannibals baby!
This isn't going to be a fun cannibal movie like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre either. Nope. Roth went the realistic route, going so far as to film in the jungles of Peru with an actual "savage" tribe.
I'm going to be honest and admit I've held off on writing about The Green Inferno because I didn't know what to make of it. But the release of a trailer is news, and I am intrigued. Check it:
A group of student activist travel from New York City to the Amazon to save a dying tribe. Unfortunately, they crash in the jungle and are taken hostage by the very natives they set out to protect.
Serves 'em right, I say.
I've read up on the Amazon and the cannibalism that goes on there. Audiences are in for quite a ride when The Green Inferno comes out Sept. 5.
