Last night Cabin Fever and Hostel director Eli Roth returned to the director’s chair with the World Premiere of The Green Inferno, about a group of student activists who travel to the Amazon to protect a dying tribe, but crash in the jungle and are taken hostage by the very natives they saved. Mike Pereira, a huge fan of Roth’s tells me in an E-mail exchange that he liked Green Inferno better than Hostel, and that it’s easily his best movie to date.
“The Green Inferno finds Eli Roth at the absolute top of his game. He is exactly where he belongs; on the director’s chair,” Mike stated in his review. “His craftsmanship and maturity has grown significantly. As extreme as the carnage gets, Roth maximizes the effect of an image at every turn. He knows when to precisely be visually graphic, as well as restrain if the opportunity calls for it.
“When it comes to the violence in The Green Inferno, it somehow manages to trump everything Roth has done to date,” he adds, speaking to the E-mail exchange I had with him.
Lastly, he states: “In The Green Inferno, Eli Roth and the cannibal sub-genre make a triumphant, long overdue return.”
