Directed by horror connoisseur Eli Roth, The Green Inferno is a Cannibal Holocaust inspired gorefest.
Justine, played by Lorenza Izzo (Aftershock) a freshman at Columbia University finds herself drawn to an activist group by its charismatic leader Alejandro (Ariel Levy, Aftershock). This group take a trip to the Amazon for some good old-fashioned activism. Their plan is to chain themselves to the bulldozers that are trying to demolish the jungle in a bid to try prevent it from happening. Unfortunately on the way their plane crashes violently into the sea of green and they’re kidnapped by the natives they are trying to protect. These people are portrayed amazingly by actual indigenous people who had apparently never seen a movie before Roth screened with them.
Filmed entirely on location in the jungle, from what I can tell from the preview the movie looks uncomfortably realistic with Roth’s slaughter that is always vivid and appearing painfully real. The Green Inferno will have probably have no problem delivering the goods with its supposed graphic dismemberment, live feasts and bodies raised on spears through painful orifices.
It’s both throwback and something disturbingly new that is sure to be controversial for some, beloved while sickening hardened horror fans, and impossible for anyone with a weak stomach. And that’s exactly how it should be.
Eli Roth’s long-overdue fourth directorial effort, The Green Inferno, looks like a promising follow-up with its shocking, bloody and disturbing premise, which is what you come to expect from the Roth.
Co-written by Guillermo Amoedo The Green inferno stars Lorenza Izzo, Ariel Levy, Sky Ferreira and Daryl Sabara and will be released on September 5, 2014, by Open Road Films
