A homage and love letter to the Italian cannibal exploitation/horror films of the 1980s such as Umberto Lenzi’s 1981 “Cannibal Ferox”  the title is taken from a “film within a film” that screens in Ruggero Deodato’s 1980 cannibal exploitation flick “Cannibal Holocaust”  Roth’s ‘Green Inferno’ follows a group of young, idealistic, privileged, and pretentious college activists who travel from New York to the Amazon in order to save the rainforest and a vanishing native tribe. When their plane crashes in the jungle, they are ironically taken hostage by the very tribe they are trying to protect, a tribe that also engages in the age-old tradition of cannibalism.

Starring Lorena Izzo, Sky Ferrerira, Ariel Levy, Daryl Sabara, and Richard Burgi, “The Green Inferno” opens on September 25th.
