The Green Inferno first premiered at Fantastic Fest in 2013, with promises to hit theaters sometime last year. Then it ran into some distribution disputes and soon found itself languishing in limbo for over a year. But now you’ll finally have a chance to see Eli Roth’s cannibal horror flick, which has just revealed a new official trailer for your, um, consumption.
The Green Inferno
For a little while there, The Green Inferno looked like it was dead, buried and gone for good. Now, Eli Roth’s cannibal horror movie has finally emerged from whatever distribution hell was keeping it down. It has a release and everything! Sure, it’ll open in theaters after his fifth film, Knock Knock, has come and gone, but that’s better than nothing, right?
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).
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.
