A group of environmentalists are taken hostage by an Amazonian tribe in Eli Roth's "The Green Inferno."

This is no rainforest documentary or eco-thriller. This is Eli Roth.

From the man who brought you the "Hostel" series comes "The Green Inferno," a story of an environmental mission gone wrong. When their flight to Peru crashes in the South American wilderness, a group of activists are taken hostage by a local tribe. One can only assume cannibalism and human sacrifice will ensue. The inspiration for  Roth's film was apparently the 1980 Italian horror flick "Cannibal Holocaust," which is still banned in several countries to this day because of its graphic violence. This film will make you never want to try and save the rainforest ever again.

"The Green Inferno" hits theaters Sept. 5. Check out the trailer below:
