It’s been six years since the release of Hostel: Part 2, and in those six years Eli Roth has been pretty damn active in the horror community. From starring in movies like Aftershock to producing movies like The Last Exorcism, appearing in countless documentaries to launching his own smart phone app, Roth has needless to say been quite busy in the years since he unleashed the gory torture sequel on his waiting audience of fans. One thing he took an extended break from, however, was making his own movies.
Roth made his triumphant return to the director’s chair with The Green Inferno, an ode to Cannibal Holocaust that began gobbling up acclaim on the festival circuit earlier this year. Though many fans have gotten the chance to see it since its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, most have not, and a widespread theatrical release date has been something I personally have been anxiously awaiting. Finally, it has arrived.
As reported by Bloody Disgusting, Open Road Films will be releasing Roth’s latest in theaters on September 5th of next year, nearly a full year after its festival premiere.
In The Green Inferno, co-written and directed by Eli Roth, a group of student activists travel to the Amazon in an effort to save a tribe from extinction. The trip takes a turn for the horrifying when they realize they’re trying to protect a tribe of cannibals… and they’re about to become the main course.
Though a trailer for the film hasn’t yet been released, we’ll be sure to post it here on iHorror as soon as it is!
