When I attended the Toronto International Film Festival back in September of 2013, I was able to attend the Midnight Madness premiere of Eli Roth’s ode to Cannibal Holocaust, The Green Inferno.
While I wasn’t completely enamored with the film at the time, I expected when it was released in theaters that it would find a following among hardcore horror aficionados. Little did I know at the time that due to a legal battle among the film companies who funded the film, it would not find a release of any form. That is, until now.
Eli Roth took to Facebook recently to announce that the folks over at Blumhouse Productions have decided to release The Green Inferno under their BH Tilt banner to theaters this September.
The film centers on a group of student activists who travel to the Amazon to prevent the destruction of the rainforests, only to be taken hostage by a group of indigenous cannibals.
The Green Inferno is expected to released in around 1,000 theaters and across other platforms September 25th.
