Back in 2002, Eli Roth launched himself into the modern horror scene with 'Cabin Fever' and he's been hanging around ever since. His low budget horror-comedy about obnoxious young people going to a remote cabin in the woods and battling a flesh-eating virus paved the way for the 'Hostel' films and then his constant presence as a producer on every other horror movie that heads straight to DVD. And here we are: only 12 years have passed and they're remaking 'Cabin Fever.' And Roth is producing. And they're using the same script as the original.
It's been a while since we've had a new film from director Eli Roth, who's spent some time producing ('Aftershock') and working on the Netflix series 'Hemlock Grove.' But he's finally returned with his latest horror vision, 'The Green Inferno,' and we've got the first full trailer for this new flick, which promises to be pretty intense.
Director Eli Roth has always worn his influences on his sleeve and the trailer for 'The Green Inferno' sees him paying tribute to one of the gnarliest and most disgusting horror subgenres of all time: the cannibal movie. This won't be an experience intended for casual movie fans -- this is a treat for horror buffs with strong wills (and stronger stomachs).
We didn't weigh in very much on the first season of Netflix's original Eli Roth horror fest 'Hemlock Grove,' though with the streaming service officially wading into second rounds of its original offerings, season 2 may prove a fine time to jump aboard. Check out the first 'Hemlock Grove' season 2 teaser, announcing a July premiere date for all episodes to begin streaming at once!
Director Ti West has been on a roll lately, creating instant horror classics with 'The House of the Devil' and 'The Innkeepers.' His streak continues with the debut of 'The Sacrament' trailer, previewing his latest found-footage endeavor that follows two reporters on a journey to a remote "religious community" (aka a cult). Let's just say that what they find isn't nice or pleasant, which makes for a really chilling movie.
A few years ago, Eli Roth directed a fake trailer called 'Clown,' which teased a non-existent movie about a family man who finds himself transforming into a demonic clown. Now, this disturbing concept has become a reality. The trailer for the completely real feature version of 'Clown' is online, and it looks just plain upsetting.
From the 'Hustle' to the horror.
Oscar-nominated director David O. Russell, who is busy putting the finishing touches on this December's 'American Hustle,' revealed that we can soon see another project from him that he won't be directing. Russell has written a horror script that he says Eli Roth actually plans to direct.
It's been six years since director Eli Roth released 'Hostel Part 2,' after which he starred in a Quentin Tarantino movie and a horror movie directed by his pal Nicholas Lopez that he also produced and co-wrote. Saying that 'The Green Inferno' is highly anticipated is no stretch, especially for fans of the genre. Those who go in expecting a proper throwback to the Italian cannibal horror films of the '70s won't be disappointed, and those who go in expecting yet another Eli Roth story of annoying college kids getting ripped apart in exotic locations won't be disappointed, either.
Netflix's Eli Roth-produced original horror series 'Hemlock Grove' may not have debuted to the critical fanfare of its predecessor 'House of Cards,' and certainly not the anticipation of its successor 'Arrested Development' season 4, but the streaming service has officially decided to scare up a second season of the supernatural horror thriller for 2014.
With Netflix due to birth its much-heralded 'Arrested Development' reunion season this weekend, the streaming service's original series future seems brighter than ever. 'House of Cards' has already begun shooting a second season, and there's several new original offerings lined up in the coming months, but will Eli Roth's moderately-received 'Hemlock Grove' get a second season? Hear what Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos has to say about the prospect inside!
