“No good deed goes unpunished.” Unless of course your good deed was waiting patiently for The Green Inferno to find distribution. I cannot tell you how excited I was to attend a screening last week and I was more than ready for possibly more gore than my stomach could handle.
In the film, Lorenza Izzo plays wide-eyed college freshman Justine, the daughter of a U.N. Ambassador and a young woman trying to find her place among international issues, protests, and hunger strikes. While roommate Kaycee (Sky Ferreira) is hip to the Bs surrounding the campus’ humanitarian group, Justine feels drawn to it. After being “shamed” at a group meeting for making a joke—shame being a common tool used among slacktivists—Justine can’t help but demand to participate in the group’s trip to the Peruvian jungle to protest the de-forestation and possible extermination of a local tribe. »

The Green Inferno, 2013.
Written and Directed by Eli Roth.
A group of student activists 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.
For a guy who hangs around Quentin Tarantino a lot, Eli Roth hasn’t really been able to incorporate stomach churning graphic violence into an exercise that fits the style and tone of his movie rather than just coming across gratuitous. Tarantino’s films aren’t revered because they’re violent, they are revered because that violence serves a purpose, which is something I’m not sure Eli Roth understood until now. »

Two years after debuting at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, Eli Roth's The Green Inferno is finally getting ready to invade theaters across the country next weekend. To prepare yourself for this gory onslaught, Blumhouse Tilt has released the first red band clip that takes us inside the brutal world of a cannibalistic cult. While there is no R-rated language or frontal nudity, this clip is not for the faint of heart, and shouldn't be watched by anyone under the age of 18.

A group of college activist's trip to save an endangered tribe in the rain forest takes a horrific turn in the third trailer for director Eli Roth's new thriller The Green Inferno.

The Green Inferno Movie Images Have Been Released. Eli Roth‘s The Green Inferno (2013) is closer than ever to actually being screened for audiences, as the official release of September 25th, 2015, is just around the corner. I’m extremely excited for this film, possibly overly joyous, but everything released so far has just maintained or raised my expectations. This will be so satisfying, I can taste it in my spit.
Bh Tilt, the production company behind this, has released a pair of new movie stills from the film, and as I mentioned earlier – my interest is still high, and nothing has changed.
The story revolves around idealistic young college graduates traveling to the amazon in order to ‘do good’, ‘protect the environment’, and ‘save the rainforest’. Of course, they’re welcomed a bit differently than they anticipated, and things go horribly, terrifyingly, deliciously wrong. It’s an homage to Cannibal Holocaust (1980) by Eli Roth, »

We recently had an opportunity to catch up with Dominique Schilling (writer/director) and Caroline Risberg (producer)to discuss their new movie, A Reason, starring Marion Ross (Mrs. Cunningham from Happy Days). See what they had to say about working with a Hollywood legend, their biggest obstacle for this film and what they have in store next. What was the most memorable moment for you while making “A Reason”? Dominique: That’s a hard question. There are so many memorable moments, like when I first drove on to set or when we shot the driving scene with Magda Apanowicz and Nick Eversman. It was an extremely calm experience within the stress on set. Then there was the pool scene and the slap scene. Working with Marion Ross. I would have to say the last shot of the film got my biggest emotional reaction. The camera pulls out in one continuous »
