The Green Inferno

The Green Inferno

A group of student activists 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.
Director: Eli Roth
Writers: Guillermo Amoedo, Eli Roth
Stars: Lorenza Izzo, Ariel Levy, Aaron Burns
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.

WWZ. 2013

WWZ. 2013

As a zombie pandemic traverses the globe, United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) travels the world trying to find a way to stop the pandemic that is defeating armies and collapsing governments. World War Z is an upcoming post-apocalyptic horror film directed by Marc Forster and written by Matthew Michael Carnahan. It is based on the novel of the same name by Max Brooks. Courtesy Wikipedia.
Director: Marc Forster
Story by: Max Brooks
Screenplay: Matthew Michael Carnahan, J. Michael Straczynski
Producers: Ian Bryce, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Brad Pitt
Stars: Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos, David Morse
Budget: $125,000,000
Release date: June 20, 2013 (initial release)

I strongly recommend reading World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War before this flick comes out; it is by far the best zombie fiction written (an I’ve read a ton of it), in my humble opinion ofcourse. Can Pitt and $125 million budget pull it off? I hope so, this thing can go two ways, absolute shit or amazing adaptation, hopefully its the latter. Can’t wait for this. Check out the trailer, read the book and prepare for the hordes! WWZ @ IMDb.

After a couple of bad starts on Netflix yesterday (Death of a Ghost Hunter, Exorcismus) my bro and I commited to Vile. The cover looked pretty sick, which ofcourse peaked our interest but the 2.7ish rating was a bit worrisome. With no other choices we dove in. The premise of the film was actually a refreshing take on the survival/torture horror genre, pretty inventive I must say. The film itself was a little rough around the edges with some shaky acting and minor errors scattered throughout but for an obviously lower budget entry Vile was well executed. We found ourselves pretty engaged in the flick and even flinching at a few of the gruesome torture scenes; can anyone say ‘Cheese Grater’. Vile isn’t going to be up for an Oscar anytime soon but if your into low budget horror and want something a bit different check it out! Vile @ IMDB
