Speaking to Yahoo!, Roth had this to say, “I want people to see The Green Inferno and say, ‘I’ve never seen anything like that in a movie theater before,’”
As for the shock…
“What I am most proud of is [The Green Inferno] looks and feels authentic. I used to think Cannibal Holocaust was real, even knowing it was a movie, it just looked and felt like these people really existed. That’s what I wanted in The Green Inferno: The village has to look and feel like a real, functioning society.”
In The Green Inferno – “Heading deep into The Green Inferno with Lorenza Izzo are Ariel Levy, Daryl Sabara and Kirby Bliss Blanton, who star in the pic that “follows a group of student activists who from New York City travel to the Amazon to protect a dying tribe, but crash in the jungle and are taken hostage by the very natives they saved.
Dark and primitive customs still rule the Amazon jungle: cannibalism and other mind, body and soul-destroying rituals. Trapped in the village, these high-tech modern-world students experience the ultimate in primal barbaric terror, suffering unspeakable acts of violence in an intense and chilling rituals reserved only for the most threatening intruders.”
Does he succeed? Have a look at the audience reaction trailer. What do you think?
