Is “The Green Inferno” Eli Roth’s Best Movie?

September 9, 2013

Eli Roth (Cabin Fever, Hostel) is back in the director’s chair and just held the World Premiere of his upcoming picture THE GREEN INFERNO.

Synopsis: “The Green Inferno is 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, sent an email to Mr. Disgusting ( and described The Green Inferno as 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. “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,” Pereira adds.

I remember liking Cabin Fever a lot when it first came out. I thought Hostel was okay, but I think his work with Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez has been beneficial to his career. I’m looking forward to this “mature, yet still disgusting” Eli Roth movie. If you own a copy of Cannibal Holocaust, there is a quote on the case from Eli Roth. Cannibal Holocaust was a very influential movie to Roth and The Green Inferno appears to be his homage to that movie.

A sequel titled BEYOND THE GREEN INFERNO is already in the works. Eli Roth won’t be in the director’s chair this time, however, and instead has tapped long-time collaborator Nicolas Lopez (Aftershock) to direct.
