The teaser trailer for Eli Roth’s first horror feature as director in five years, The Green Inferno, was unleashed last month and it was very effective indeed. Now comes the full length trailer, and even though it holds back on the truly horrific stuff, it is still a chilling, horrible watch.
Here we get to see just how the group of “save the rainforest” activists end up in a rather nasty situation. The footage of the plane crash is very well put together, but the survivors will probably wish they had died on the plane once they realise what horrors await courtesy of a tribe of cannibals.
Eli Roth’s (“Hostel”, “Cabin Fever”) The Green Inferno stars Lorenza Izzo (“Aftershock”), Ariel Levy(“Aftershock”), Aaron Burns, Daryl Sabara (“John Carter”, “Machete”), Kirby Bliss Blanton (“Project X”), Magda Apanowicz and actress/singer Sky Ferreria. Worldview Entertainment, a leading independent motion picture production and investment company, is financing and producing the horror thriller, which is directed by Eli Roth and based on a screenplay he co-wrote with “Aftershock” co-writer Guillermo Amoedo.
The flick is inspired by Italian mondo films like Ruggero Deodato’s notorious 1980 Cannibal Holocaust and Antonio Climati’s 1988 Natura contro (also known as The Green Inferno and Cannibal Holocaust II).
The Green Inferno will be released in US cinemas on September 5th.
THE GREEN INFERNO, directed, co-written, and produced by Roth (HOSTEL, CABIN FEVER), follows a group of student activists who travel from New York City to the Amazon to save the rainforest. However, once they arrive in this vast green landscape, they soon discover that they are not alone…and that no good deed goes unpunished.
