Eli Roth's cannibal horror movie The Green Inferno gets a teaser trailer

04.16.2014

We have been hearing about Eli Roth's cannibal horror film THE GREEN INFERNO for quite some time and now we finally get a look at the teaser for the flick due later this year. Roth filmed THE GREEN INFERNO in the jungles of Peru using native tribes as actors, most of whom had never even seen a television or knew what a movie was. Much like the cult classic CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST, Roth strove to create a terrifingly realistic horror film, unlike his prior movies like HOSTEL and CABIN FEVER.

THE GREEN INFERNO represents Eli Roth's first directorial effort since HOSTEL: PART II in 2007. From the fleeting glimpses in this trailer, the movie looks a lot like the cannibal horror movies that were popular in the 1970s. Some may say that this is just another exploitation movie from a filmmaker who has made a career of that genre. Those folks would be partially correct. Why THE GREEN INFERNO is undoubtedly an exploitation movie, it is not one that we have seen get a wide release in a long time.

Idealistic Justine (Lorenza Izzo) joins a group of campus radicals on a mission to disrupt the illegal clear-cutting of a Peruvian jungle, which is endangering the tranquil lives of an isolated Amazonian tribe. Armed with good intentions and the power of their cellphone cameras, the group flies to Peru and seemingly succeeds in their mission. But the activists’ celebration quickly turns to tragedy when their plane crashes in the jungle — and they find themselves on the dinner menu of the very people they were trying to protect.

Think of THE GREEN INFERNO what you will, but this will definitely be the type of movie that gains a cult following from rabid horror fans and aficionados of grindhouse cinema. Heck, just the name Eli Roth may garner this movie a big opening weekend.

THE GREEN INFERNO starring Daryl Sabara, Kirby Bliss Blanton, Lorenza Izzo, Ariel Levy, Aaron Burns, Magda Apanowicz, and Sky Ferreria premieres in theaters on September 5, 2014.

Hated Roth's Hostel movies. Felt like pornography for sadists. For me it all depends on whether this is simply another torture chamber with new decorations or if there is actually a plot to speak of.

Agreed. I'm a huge horror fan, but the Hostels werent horror, they were torture porn. And I couldnt have cared less about any of the characters.

What the fuck are you talking about man? I like Eli Roth. I like everything he's directed to a certain degree. I liked Hostel II, but it was a BOMB. Nobody went to go check out the Earthquake movie he starred in? I saw it and can't even remember its name. Again, I like him, but his name is CERTAINLY not going to make this movie a big opening weekend film. Casual movie goers prolly don't even remember him. Hell, I remember ppl arguing with me that Quentin Tarantino directed Hostel.

Hell, I remember ppl arguing with me that Quentin Tarantino directed Hostel. Grindhouse completely bombed too, and that movie had names in front of and behind the camera. And there's no way to say for sure this movie will be a cult film. If it's good it will be, but who knows of it will be. Roth is kind of like Rob Zombie as a filmmaker. Some of the time they really nail horror and Grindhouse and sometimes they really over shoot it. Roth has the better record, and prolly the slightly more talented filmmaker (at least), but despite being a fan and I'm sure I'll watch this, I'd be willing to bet this movie bombs. Well, it may make a profit bc it's prolly going to be pretty cheap, but this movie isn't going to be in the top 3 movies of the weekend. Maybe even 5. A hardcore cannibal movie directed by the guy from inglorious Basterds who had the bat. What you wrote is completely ridiculous. What we like and appreciate is a lot of times the complete opposite of what does well at the box office. Especially dark gory movies. There's gotta be a lot of pros to working at home, but you need to log off and step outside some and see what the ppl outside are saying.

And that's what I meant by the Rob Zombie comparison - I didn't word it well. They are obv both big fans of film, especially horror, but ppl (even us movie nerds) either love them or hate them. I would rather Zombie make movies than a lot of the horror movies that come out, and I didn't see his last film, but the couple before that were pretty bad

No interest. The review posted here made this sound like another gore glory film that's ultimately as violent as it is simply for the sake of being so. I have outgrown my desire for those kinds of films, so I think I'll take a pass. Not too thrilled with anything that Roth has been working on these days.

Has promise. As long as it doesn't pull the heavy handed "who are the real savages" theme that the crappy Cannibal Holocaust tried to pull, it should work just fine.

Never understood the love this guy gets. I wonder if he actually does have a decent following or is it more the media outlets trying to convince us that he is this awesome "horror icon." Cabin Fever and Hostel were his most notable and those were fair if anything.

He does have a following as he tends to represent a very specific group of independent horror fans. He just happens to get thrown into the mainstream a lot. He's also close to Tarantino and Rodriguez, so he has their support.

Eli Roth behind the camera has never really wow'ed me, but Cannibal Holocaust is one of my favorite cult classics. If he is trying to do something modern like that, I would be interested to see what comes out of it.

Now Eli Roth in front of the camera, well, the bear jew is pretty BA.
