Originally set to hit theaters last year, Eli Roth‘s The Green Inferno ended up running into all sorts of behind-the-scenes issues, leaving its release up in the air for quite some time. It was only recently that Blumhouse saved the film, and they’re releasing it later this year.
Roth’s first movie in nearly a decade, The Green Inferno is the Cabin Fever/Hostel director’s gruesome love letter to Italian horror classics like Cannibal Holocaust and Cannibal Ferox. It originally had its world premiere back in 2013, and played the festival circuit throughout 2014.
Co-written and directed by Roth, The Green Inferno follows a group of student activists who 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.
