When I spoke to Eli Roth about The Green Inferno, we chatted about the film’s political messaging. You won’t see much of that in this first trailer. This is all about the fear of being eaten by another human being.
That was very well put together, and superbly structured. Does it tell us anything about the film’s plot? No. But it sells us scares and a creepy tone, and that’s a very good thing for a film on this mission.
So well received was The Green Inferno that production on a sequel starts this summer, before the first part receives its general release.
