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).
The Green Inferno
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.
Though Eli Roth is busy with the upcoming Netflix horror series 'Hemlock Grove,' delving into the freaky world of gypsy mythos, he's got another directorial effort on the horizon with 'The Green Inferno.' If you're pro saving the rainforest and all its inhabitants, you probably won't be after getting your first look of the film.
