Official Poster: Eli Roth’s Cannibal Film, “THE GREEN INFERNO”News Samuel Zimmerman
Eli Roth, he of HOSTEL and CABIN FEVER and Bear Jew fame has returned to directing after a six year absence and crafted a brand new horror film in the grand tradition of one of the grossest of subgenres: the Italian Cannibal film. Feast (boom, joke achievement unlocked) your eyes on the official poster for THE GREEN INFERNO below.
Having premiered as part of the Toronto International Film Festival’s Midnight Madness program last fall, as well as hitting Austin’s Fantastic Fest and this past spring’s Stanley Film Festival (in secret), THE GREEN INFERNO is nearly here in general release. The film and its Roth-standard mix of splatter and juvenile, yet nihilistic, humor hit this September 5th. It finds a group of student, would-be activists travel down to the Amazon from New York City, only to crash land and be taken hostage by a rural cannibal tribe.
An full-length trailer is expected this Friday. [Fandango]
