Acclaimed Horror Director Eli Roth's cannibal-horror film The Green Inferno, is finally set to be released. The long awaited film was scheduled to be released in September 2014. But, it looked like it was going to be delayed indefinitely after Open Road Films pulled the film. The distribution company hit financial differences with the production company 'Worldview Entertainment' which caused the delay. Now Blumhouse Productions have come in and rescued the film and it will arrive in cinemas in September 2015.
Take a look at the trailer here:
Speaking at the Edinburgh Festival Eli Roth described the film:
“The Green Inferno is a film about a bunch of students from New York City that are real activist types, they want to do the right thing, they’re into Twitter and hashtagging and re-tweeting,” says Roth. “And they go to the Amazon to save a dying tribe. They’re about to be contacted, so those people are going to rip up their village and take the minerals underneath, so they chain themselves to trees, they protest, and it actually works, it shuts it down, and then on the way home their plane crashes, and the very people they save basically dart them, and take them hostage, and just see them as invaders. And they become the life supply of the village.”
If Roth's previous work is anything to go by, I can see The Green Inferno really getting a great reception from horror fans. His previous work includes Hostel, The Last Exorcism, Grindhouse and Cabin Fever.
Now that we know the film will happen, one question remains...
