The Green Inferno, Eli Roth’s first feature since the undervalued Hostel: Part II seems, at first glance, a cannibal-style Italian horror-esque throwback, a sentiment the crowding nature of its first look and its synopsis (…follows an idealistic student and a group of naive do-gooders who are captured by cannibalistic Indios after their plane crash lands in the Peruvian jungle) would do little to dispel. As the filmmaker makes rounds discussing his producing role on the upcoming The Last Exorcism Part II however, he’s distancing himself from the idea of homage.

Roth told Fangoria matter-of-factly, “Nobody has any idea what I’m doing with Green Inferno. It’s not going to be a Mondo cannibal film.” Later, and over at Empire he lauded Ruggero Deodato's classic of cannibal films, Cannibal Holocaust, while explaining, “…I really wanted to do something that was much more like a Werner Herzog movie. »
