If there’s one person who’s bound to put a downer on your holiday, it’s actor/director Eli Roth. From Cabin Fever to Hostel, Roth has delighted in taking attractive young Americans into the unknown and then chopping them up into little pieces.
His new film, Green Inferno looks set to continue the theme as a group of American philanthropists crash land in the Peruvian rainforest, only to find themselves on the menu of a terrifying indigenous tribe.
Cue cannibals painted in blood, weird shamanic rituals and lots of grisly knives made of suspiciously sourced bones.
So far, so generic, but what might set the film apart is its use of a genuine Amazonian tribe, whom Roth trekked into the jungle to seek out, before showing them his Inferno inspiration, Cannibal Holocaust.
With 80 members of the tribe agreeing to take part in the film, there will undoubtedly be those who claim Inferno is playing on tribal stereotypes, but judging by the opening titles of the trailer, it seems Roth is more interested in sending up gap year do-gooders than anything else.
The Green Inferno is set to open on 14 September in the US.
