Budget: $6,000,000 (estimated)


I am really pissed, I have been absolutely drooling over this for the past year or so waiting patiently for the homage to the legendary Cannibal Holocaust. Bloody Disgusting had this to say “Deadline is reporting that Green Inferno, the Roth-directed film about student activists who travel from Gotham to save the Amazon rainforest only to be pursued by a cannibal tribe, has been taken off Open Road’s release calendar. The film was scheduled for wide release on September 5. We’ve been supporting the film heavily here on the site after we posted this positive review last September. They write that this happened because financier Worldview Entertainment is balking at ex-CEO Christopher Woodrow’s commitment to provide the P&A. They have also confirmed from Open Road that the release date is scratched, though the distributor won’t comment further, including whether there will be a later release date or if this goes straight to video.
Anywhoo check out the trailers below and go watch Cannibal Holocaust.

Eli Roth’s latest project, The Green Inferno, is currently in post production and is scheduled for release sometime later this year. An homage to the classic Italian exploitation flicks Cannibal Holocaust, Cannibal Ferox and Man From Deep river (among others). Bloody Amazonian carnage in the classic Mondo stylings, The Green Inferno is high on my list of Must See films of 2013. Check out the bloody first image released from the film, below.

Official Synopsis

A group of student activists travel from New York City to the Amazon to save a dying tribe but crash in the jungle and are taken hostage by the very natives they protected.

Wiki

Honestly the last few flicks in the Wrong Turn franchise have been going down hill fast; the lesbians in #4 were pretty much the only saving grace in the last flick. Needless to say I wasn’t to enthusiastic about the release of Wrong Turn 5 having given up hope on the series. I rented it anyway not hoping for much. Wrong Turn 5 was a bit of a reversal in the downward trend of the last 3 films; now it isn’t going to be up for an Oscar anytime soon but the flick does have its decent moments. Wrong Turn 5 starts off in West Virginia where a group of hapless teens (of-course) are on their way to a music festival near a small backwoods town. As is the case in almost every slasher/inbred/cannibal/hillbilly flick, the teens stray off the course and stumble across said maniacs and bloody mayhem ensues. Ya! (more…)
