The MPAA has just officially slapped an unsurprising R rating to Eli Roth's THE GREEN INFERNO for its "aberrant violence and torture, grisly disturbing images, brief graphic nudity, sexual content, language and some drug use” — in other words, this is going to be one nasty piece of cinema from Mr. Roth. Seriously, THE GREEN INFERNO has "date night" written all over it!
Eli Roth's return behind the camera of a feature film is pretty damn exciting and the fact that THE GREEN INFERNO sounds like the director has only brought even more carnage to the big screen makes it even better. The film will premiere at TIFF's Midnight Madness where we will start getting word on just how this one turns out. For now though, it appears that this is going to be a solid addition to the horror genre and deliver some gory goods. TIFF made an awesome observation saying, "Check out Roth's past MPAA scorecards. His violence started as "strong," then went to "brutal," then "sadistic," and finally to The Green Inferno's particularly evocative "aberrant." That's called "growing as a filmmaker" — that pretty much says it all!
How far would you go for a cause you believe in? In horror master Eli Roth’s terrifying new film, a group of college students take their humanitarian protest from New York to the Amazon jungle, only to get kidnapped by the native tribe they came to save: a tribe that still practices the ancient rite of cannibalism, and has a healthy appetite for intruders.
Daryl Sabara, Kirby Bliss Blanton, Lorenza Izzo, Ariel Levy, Aaron Burns, Magda Apanowicz, and Sky Ferreria all star.
