At long last, Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno is coming to theaters, and as the horror director’s ardent followers prepare for what’s sure to be some spectacular bloodletting, a new trailer for the cannibal pic has dropped on the film’s official Facebook page.
Though we’ve know the plot of the movie for ages (it screened at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival and was originally due to arrive last year, before disagreements with a financier led to the movie getting delayed), Roth’s latest follows a group of college activists who head to the rainforest to protect an indigenous tribe, only for their plane to crash and them to end up captives of the very same natives they had been attempting to help.
Our own Matt Joseph was a fan of the movie when he caught it at TIFF way back in 2013, saying that the film “is easily the director’s most accomplished work and will undoubtedly stand as a favorite for fans of the genre for years to come. It may not disturb as much as Cannibal Holocaust, and it may not be as convincing either, but it’s visceral, unsettling and completely insane at times.”
Thanks to Blumhouse Tilt, a subdivision of the Paranormal Activity producer’s prolific horror company that specializes in unique releases for niche titles, The Green Inferno will finally be blazing its way into theaters on September 25.
