Stephen King Loved ‘The Green Inferno’

It’s not out until next week but author Stephen King has seen Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno and he liked what he witnessed! Dubbing it a “glorious throwback“, King’s Twitter review is one hell of an endorsement for the film, which was plagued with release issues.

Heading deep into The Green Inferno with Lorenza Izzo are Ariel Levy, Daryl Sabara and Kirby Bliss Blanton, who star in the pic that “follows a group of student activists who 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.

Dark and primitive customs still rule the Amazon jungle: cannibalism and other mind, body and soul-destroying rituals. Trapped in the village, these high-tech modern-world students experience the ultimate in primal barbaric terror, suffering unspeakable acts of violence in an intense and chilling rituals reserved only for the most threatening intruders.

The Green Inferno eats its way into theaters on September 25th.

    Can’t wait to watch The Green Inferno. With this and Knock Knock, there are two Eli Roth movies coming up which I’m dying to see.
    As for Steven King’s praise for Inferno, it doesn’t really mean anything to me. He also said that The Babadook is the scariest movie since The Exorcist … :/

      To be fair an author’s opinion of an adaptation of his own work can be unreliable. Sometimes they dig something about the adaptation that doesn’t translate to everyone else.

    King’s endorsement has helped a lot of storytellers. Clive Barker and Gillian Flynn to name a few.

    Idk man something about just mean spirited, cruel, realistic violence. Not really into it and that’s literally all this movie seems to be about. I don’t see a happy ending for any of the characters we’re supposed to be investing in. Roth seems to be a one trick pony just like M. Night except his “plot twist” is just extreme gore

      You people and you “happy endings” are what is ruining movies for me. Life does not always have happy endings. I need my films to sometimes reflect that. If it isn’t for you, then don’t watch it. But don’t be one of those that constantly whines about how movies have to end on a “happy note”. It’s unrealistic.

      • Scott Lawrence

        I respectfully disagree. I don’t think every movie needs a happy ending. However, I do like to escape in a horror movie and root for someone. Not to say films where no one survives aren’t effective & powerful. They are. I have seen many and appreciate the artistic choice. Not sure how I feel about this one. It seems particularly cruel. If I see it, I just won’t be going 2 the concession stand.

      • SugarShane333

        I totally agree. Movies like the Purge where you just KNOW the black dude hiding the whole movie is gonna come save the day at the end, totally ruin everything that came before. That said, I also don’t like the cheap not-so-happy ending where there’s no reason to end it shitty and they do just to be hipsters.

      • La Molcajete

        Man stfu with that nonsense. I love unhappy endings every now and then when it strengthens the movie. But Roth always ends his films on a bad note just because it’ll make his movie “different” and stick out more than others. It’s pathetic and it’s tiring. But you pry love the same thing repeated over and over so I’m sure you’re his #1 fan

          Well, seeing as your own initial ‘nonsensical’ OP was in turn met with what you perceive to be a nonsensical post in response, I don’t see how how you can either be surprised or annoyed. Newton’s third law, breh.
          And FYI, one doesn’t have to be anything remotely approaching a Roth fanboy to find fault with your OP. Roth was obviously weaned on the same sort of bleak 70s horror films that King was. Same goes for me. Now, if you want to criticize him for being homage-happy in terms of the types of films he’s interested in making, well that’s a whole other argument. But your frame of reference seems to be in adequate to objectively criticize Roth’s body of work and his impetus for producing it.

          the fact that you can say “all his films” shows he is obviously successful how many films that YOU have written have been release in theaters and made millions? oh thats right none. fuck you. An artists style is just that, their style. You obviously dont like that style so go watch a fuckin romantic comedy you bag of fuck.
