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.

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…)

I absolutely love Post Apocalyptic, Apocalyptic, Outbreak and general world ending themes in films. The breakdown of humanity on a massively global scale has always been of great interest to me; am I jaded and soured by civilization, probably. One of the greatest questions asked by most PA flicks is; what would I do in that scenario. What would the viewer do differently? Or, could I survive. Do I have what it takes to survive? I think in that respect I enjoy this genre of horror immensely. I read the synopsis about The Day (not being aware of the film beforehand) and rented it immediately; pleasantly surprised to find out that it is a Canadian film (go Leafs!). The Day is set in a crumbling world where an unknown event has resulted in the collapse of society; global food shortages are hinted at in the film. Cannibalism is widespread and is a central focus throughout The Day. Various groups roam the rural landscape hunting and trapping human prey for food. The theme of cannibalism is standard fare in countless PA films but is portrayed in a rather bleak and desperate way in The Day. Touching on realism. The Day is shot in wonderfully crisp grey tones highlighting a shattered and dull world; bringing about a sad despairing feel to the film. With supplies and food running low a band of survivors (old high school friends) find themselves trapped in an old dilapidated farmhouse fighting for survival against a blood thirsty band of cannibalistic hunters intent on slaughtering them for their next meal. Wow cool huh? Yep. The Film begs the question; what would you do to survive? Or more specifically; what would you eat to survive? If you are into PA at all you have to give this one a go, it has its flaws (like anything else) but is a solid entry into the genre. Check out The Day @ IMDb.
