‘The Green Inferno’ First Look: Eli Roth Shows Why You Shouldn’t Save the Rainforest
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.
Called Roth’s interpretation of the cannibal flick genre, ‘The Green Inferno’ originated from a screenplay he wrote with his ‘Aftershock‘ partner in crime, co-writer Guillermo Amoedo. In terms of plot details, a number of them have been floating around the web, but Roth has released the official version on his Tumblr:
A group of student activists from New York City travel to the Amazon to protect a dying tribe, but crash in the jungle and are taken hostage by the very natives they saved.
Shock Till You Drop was the first one with the initial image (though the hi-res version was released shortly afterwards), and it reminds us a lot of that ‘South Park‘ episode where the gang trudges through the rainforest and are soon attacked by those aboriginal pigmy things — only ‘The Green Inferno,’ we’re assuming, gets a bit bloodier.
