Eli Roth's The Green Inferno saved by Blumhouse, will get fall release

Finally, some good news regarding Eli Roth's THE GREEN INFERNO! The long-delayed cannibal opus, which has been sitting on a shelf for well over a year now, has been snatched up by Blumhouse Productions and will receive a fall theatrical release via the company's Blumhouse Tilt label.

Roth and Jason Blum made the announcement on Roth's official Facebook page; check it out below.

It's been a long road for THE GREEN INFERNO, which was originally supposed to come out last September but got lost in the shuffle when original distributor Open Road Films was forced to pull it from its schedule due to issues with the financier, Worldview Entertainment. Now the film will come out a little over a year from when it was first intended. (Check out our TIFF review from two years ago HERE.)


"The Green Inferno is a wild, fun ride that took us deeper into the Amazon than anyone has ever taken a film crew,” said Roth in a statement. “BH Tilt is a forward thinking label that is helping to redefine how genre movies can be released. I want to express my deep gratitude to the fans for their incredible support of this movie and to everyone at Blumhouse and Universal for making sure fans can experience the film in theaters across the country.”

Jason Blum added: “When we launched BH Tilt we said our goal was to be part of the continuing evolution of distribution, whether it is through changing marketing strategies, changing revenue sources or changing windows. We are excited to capitalize on new developments in distribution and marketing to bring Eli’s movie to horror lovers across the country.”

THE GREEN INFERNO comes out September 25th.
