BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Hotel Transylvania 2 proved that the Sony franchise has some strong life behind it, out-performing its predecessor and holding up against the other second-tier animated franchises on the market.
It's taken a while, but Eli Roth's cannibal throwback The Green Inferno is finally hitting theaters, and what better time to countdown some of the greatest, most influential people eating people movies of all time?
Many crazy things happened to Eli Roth and the cast and crew of The Green Inferno, but the craziest thing to happen to the production involved receiving a baby as a gift.
Sundays are getting harder and harder to breathe around here. With NFL and the Emmy’s it’s like America is conspiring against me to get this column done. But still, Hollywood keeps putting out stuff for us to enjoy.
Cheer up, folks! Just because summer's gone, doesn't mean the good movies have gone with it. Take a look at 10 prime candidates that should hold you over until the award blitz this fall.
Eli Roth's latest, The Green Inferno, may be a throwback exploitation film about cannibals, but he has another agenda as well, to take people who overreact on social media down a peg.
Open Road films has dumped Green Inferno from its release calendar with less than a month before it was set to debut.
H.P. Lovecraft had a pretty active imagination, I think we can all agree. But even his great mind probably never considered his greatest creation, Cthulhu, would ever exist within the lady parts of a hooker. (Or maybe he did. Nudge, nudge.)
This is actually only Roth's fourth effort as a director, following Cabin Fever and the two Hostel movies. But he's built a heavy rep working on projects like Grindhouse and the Netflix series Hemlock Grove. It's apparently given him the license to call himself a “Horror Master” as he does in the trailer, which is totally different from being a “Master Of Horror.”
But what does all this mean for Roth's Green Inferno? Chiefly that the plot will center on a group of "naïve do-gooders" who survive a terrible plane crash in the midst of the Peruvian jungle only to be the prey of a batch of man-eating tribesmen. So basically, it'll fit well with Roth's established xenophobic horror themes.
The Green Inferno will be the first movie Roth has helmed since 2007's Hostel: Part II, and horror fans are sure to cheer his return to the director's chair. Unfortunately, Worldview won't even reveal the logline behind the curious title at this time, but with the story being born from Roth's twisted imagination, there's bound to be plenty of gore in store.
