Eli Roth fans rejoice as the director of Cabin Fever and Hostel takes on a new genre: cannibals.

Production recently wrapped in Peru and Chile on The Green Inferno, Roth’s cannibal horror starring Daryl Sabara, Kirby Bliss Blanton, Lorenza Izzo, Ariel Levy, Aaron Burns, Magda Apanowicz and Sky Ferreria.

Blood Disgusting has your first ever look with the following hi-res still!

Apparently inspired by Italo mondo films like Ruggero Deodato’s notorious 1980 Cannibal Holocaust and Antonio Climati’s 1988 Natura contro (also known as The Green Inferno and Cannibal Holocaust II), The Green Inferno 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.

Roth revealed something more official on his Tumblr: “A group of student activists from New York City travel to the Amazon to protect a dying tribe, but crash in the jungle and are taken hostage by the very natives they saved.

    Schweet! Not a fan of the original Cannibal Holocaust but can’t wait to see Roth’s take on it.

    Who is the girl on the photo? Kirby Bliss?

  • Baphomitt

    Hated Cabin Fever, disliked the Hostels, really looking forward to this.

  • Aaron Emery

    I love that Eli Roth doesn’t limit himself to any sub-genre. This, HOSTEL, and CABIN FEVER are all completely different things. I’m a big fan of both HOSTEL & CABIN and am really looking forward to this.

    Eli rules nice to see him back in the chair, Cannibal Holocaust wasn’t really all that good. It was kind of boring but mostly cannibal movies are to me.

  • lovezoid

    I’ve never been able to see turtles the same way again after Cannibal Holocaust.

  • Aaron Emery

    Fuck CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST, what a bullshit excuse for a film that was.

  • Ravinus

    I’m looking forward to this flick. I think Cabin Fever is great. The Hostel was pretty entertaining as well. Cannibal Holocaust is garbage and those that say it is anything but are either death metal posers or lying.

      “The Hostel”…lol

      Yeah I like Cannibal Holocaust and I’m not lying or a death metal poser, whatever the fuck that might be. I’m actually a big fan of most Italian films, and of the director who has made other good movies too. And before you go off on a PETA rant I don’t like it because of the animal deaths or whatever, in fact, I love animals so please don’t go there like most do. In fact Cannibal Holocaust is (in?)directly the inspiration for many found footage films that probably ARE garbage, but also some that are not. So don’t discredit CH. It is somewhat worth its merit as a film.

    And to respond to the main article, can’t wait to see this. From reading the first post on here that said Eli Roth and Green Inferno I was definitely excited. Bring it.

    Also can’t wait to see this. I’m somewhat on-the-fence with the whole cannibal/mondo genre in general. Not solely for the animal abuses, I’ve just never been a huge fan of any of those films, but I do acknowledge the impact those films had, especially with a film like Cannibal Holocaust and I do think it will be cool to see someone like Eli Roth’s take on these films.

    • lovezoid

      I agree, I think its a bit much to just write those movies off (well Cannibal Holocaust or maybe Mondo Cane, anyway), as garbage or even talk about them out-of-context – they are, at the very least, an intriguing entry in cinema history. I just find them uncomfortable to watch because of the cheapness and the bad acting (and yeah, the abuse). But CH actually kind of makes an interesting statement, whether it means to or not, simply the fact that it exists, it’s about western eyes on a savage world and the moral implications of it all, which kind of extends to the viewer.

      And it still looks like they really cut that dude’s dick off.

      The original Green Inferno was boring garbage though, like a sterilised imitation of CH. None of those blurred lines between fiction and documentary, so I’m guessing that’s why Eli Roth picked that as the touchpoint – I don’t think you could get away with blurring those lines today.
