No good deed goes unpunished

 

Justine is a college freshman, who becomes interested in the work of a local social activism group. Ignoring the warning of her friend, she joins the group on a trip to Peru where they plan to stop a company from destroying the forest.

When they plan to head home their plane crashes and they are stuck in the middle of the jungle. The group is quickly surrounded and taken captive by a group of savage meat loving cannibals. Unless they find a way to escape, they will all end up on the dinner plate, one by one…

So, Eli Roth is back with a new film. Well, not exactly new as The Green Inferno was supposed to be released back in 2013, but due to problems at the production company the release has been postponed until now, late 2015. Even though I have not been fond of any previous efforts of Roth, I am still hoping that he will knock it out of the park one day. He is a horror nerd, like us fans and nothing would make me happier than to be able to cheer for “one of our own”.

Eli Roth loves Cannibal Holocaust

And now he is going to shoot “The Green Inferno” in the Amazon River. The plot revolves around a group of survivors from a plane crash who has to survive in the amazons and comes across a tribe of cannibals. Roth has said in the past that Cannibal Holocaust is one of his favorite movies and the title “Green Inferno” is an obvious reference to that film, since that is also the title of the film-within-the-film in Holocaust.

Since directing the sequel to Hostel, Roth has kept himself busy by producing The Last Exorcism and popping up in cameo’s in other films. I haven’t been impressed with his films so far, but I am always up for a new cannibal movie so hopefully he is able to deliver something interesting with this one. My biggest concern is that it can quickly become a rehash of the older ones and simply another homage¬†instead of bringing something new to the table.

The cast he will be working with consist of Daryl Sabara (Spy Kids, Machete), Kirby Bliss Blanton (Hannah Montana, Scar), Lorenza Izzo (Fuck My Wedding, Aftershock) and Ariel Levy (Fuck My Wedding, Aftershock), Sky Ferreira (Putty Hill) and Magda Apanowicz (Snowmageddon, Dead Souls).

Filming is set to start in November.
