David Hakl launches crowdfunding campaign for horror Earthworks.
David Hakl, veteran of the Saw franchise, has taken to Kickstarter to help fund psychological horror Earthworks.
Producer Shaheen Schleifer and executive producer Roger Trett aim to raise £500,000 ($835,000) of the film’s budget through the platform, with donor prizes including appearences in the film and skype sessions with the director.
Set among the trenches of the First World War, the film follows five young Us soldiers who get lost in the fog of No Man’s Land during a mission.
War is hell, and Saw V director David Hackl is out to prove it's a lot more hellish than you may think with his latest film, Earthworks. There's just one small detail... he's looking to you to help fund a portion of it! Read on for details.
Earthworks is a WWII horror film that follows five American doughboys on their first night in the trenches of the Western Front as they experience the living (and dead) hell that is No Man’s Land. It is to be directed by Hackl and produced by UK outfit Bluebeard Pictures.
“Earthworks exists in an isolated trench/No Man’s Land set and creates a sense of abandonment from the start... Five young American soldiers enter France, and on their first night at an Allied trench, everything goes wrong very quickly. Caught up in a beguiling fog, the young characters each come to different but understandable decisions. »

The world is just, quite simply, not nearly as funny a place now as it was just a few hours ago, before the tragic death of legendary comedian and actor Robin Williams. For nearly 40 years, the man kept us in stitches in ways only he could, with an impeccable delivery and an unmistakable charm that is often mimicked but never equaled.
As the world mourns this comedy legend, we take a look back at our 16 favorite Robin Williams performances, some in classics that are beloved the world over, and some in overlooked and/or underrated gems that deserve to be noticed.
While some actors spend years paying their dues in thankless guest starring or supporting roles on film and TV, it didn't take Robin Williams long to find a foothold in Hollywood. His appearance as the alien Mork on one episode of Happy Days was so popular it lead »
Fans of horror filmmaker Eli Roth will have to wait a bit longer to watch his first directorial effort in six years, The Green Inferno, after Worldview Entertainment pulled it from their release slate, delaying it indefinitely.

The film, which centers on a group of college activists who find themselves hunted by a tribe of cannibals in the Amazon jungle, was initially slated for release on September 5. Former Worldview Entertainment CEO Christopher Woodrow had previously committed to providing publicity and advertising for the horror film, but, following his abrupt exit in June, the studio is now questioning that commitment. It isn't clear if the »
Some rather irritating news to unfortunately kick-off your weekend with is news that Eli Roth's latest gore-filled horror offering 'The Green Inferno' has fallen victim to a late release date shifting! Originally planned to arrive on 5 September, less than one month away, the movie has now been pulled completely with no replacement date offered. There is even the possibility that the project will not even make it to theatres at all. It all boils down to financier issues with Worldview Entertainment and so Open Road have had to pull the plug on its planned September opening. 'The Green Inferno' stars Lorenza Izzo ('Aftershock'), Ariel Levy, Daryl Sabara, Kirby Bliss Blanton, Sky Ferreira, Magda Apanowicz, Nicolas Martinez and Aaron Burns. Let's just hope this gets resolved and that the movie gets an adequate release plan in the future. »
If you were looking forward to seeing Eli Roth back behind the camera for the first time in six years, then it looks like you’re going to have a little longer to wait, with Open Road Films pulling the cannibal horror The Green Inferno from its release schedule with less than a month to go before before its planned date of September 5th.
According to Deadline, the reason behind the move is that the financier Worldview Entertainment has balked at former CEO Christopher Woodrow’s commitment to fund the P&A for the movie. At this point, it is unknown whether Open Road will set a new date for the movie, or if another distributor will step in to prevent it from going straight-to-video or VOD.

Review by Andrew McArthur
Paying homage to much-missed Cannibal-horror film (see Cannibal Holocaust, Man From Deep River, Eaten Alive!), The Green Inferno follows a group of college students who become stranded in the Amazon after their plane crashes when returning from a successful protest. The survivors soon find themselves imprisoned by a local tribe with a taste for human flesh.
Like all good horror films should be, The Green Inferno is nerve-shreddingly tense, packed with a foreboding atmosphere of dread, and is in equal parts visually grotesque and gorgeous. Whilst this lovingly pays tribute to the cannibal film, Roth breathes »

You gotta love a guy who allows (hell, he probably wrote the copy!) for a movie to be sold as being from his “twisted mind.” Then again, when you’re Eli Roth and you make your living cranking out snuff films disguised as horror movies, there are worse ways to be described, I suppose. Check out the new trailer for his latest “The Green Inferno,” which finds a group of pretty American college students going to the Amazon to save the rain forest or some dumb shit like that. Their plane ends up crashing and the locals decide to snack on them. I think they call that ironic. Or tragic. Or one of those. Either way: Yummy! The flick stars Lorenza Izzo, Ariel Levy, Daryl Sabara, Kirby Bliss Blanton, Sky Ferreira, Magda Apanowicz, Nicolás Martínez, Aaron Burns, and Ignacia Allamand, and comes for dinner this September 5th. »
It's been six years since writer/director Eli Roth's last full feature length directorial effort and despite the title sounding like a cheesy superhero movie his latest project 'The Green Inferno' all looks set to be his sickest effort to date. The grim and grisly new horror which focuses on a group of goody two-shoes activists who head to Peru to save a dying tribe. But when their plane crashes in the jungle it's the ungrateful tribe that turn on the students. 'The Green Inferno' stars Lorenza Izzo ('Aftershock'), Ariel Levy, Daryl Sabara, Kirby Bliss Blanton, Sky Ferreira, Magda Apanowicz, Nicolas Martinez and Aaron Burns. Head below to view the new trailer. »
Eli Roth is one of the biggest names in mainstream horror right now, thanks to the success of his Hostel and Cabin Fever franchises. His fingerprints are also all over many other projects, from Netflix series Hemlock Grove to The Last Exorcism, the upcoming Knock Knock and We tv’s recently announced South of Hell series. However, Roth’s next film in theaters will actually be his long-anticipated cannibal flick, The Green Inferno.
Gore aficionados have been waiting patiently for this movie, and they’ll finally get to see it this September on the big screen. But until it arrives in theaters, at least they will have this thrilling, highly disturbing trailer to make the wait a little more bearable. Check it out below:
In an interesting twist, the protagonists in Roth’s latest aren’t mutton-headed jocks and sluts but well-meaning college students out of New York City. On »
