Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno: See The First Official Trailer (And Official Release Date) Right Here In HD!

I am sorry to report that this is a “green band” trailer; and also it appears the movie has been trimmed down enough for an R-Rating (though knowing Roth, he’s not going to let all that Nicotero practical FX work go to waste and we’ll get an unrated version on DVD).  Check out the promising first official trailer below in glorious HD:

We have a bad feeling that some of the footage shown (you can probably figure out what) is from a female circumcision* scene that fortunately does not go all the way. First time I’ve appreciated an Eli Roth film NOT showing something.

Plus…

THE Official Release Date for The Green Inferno is:

September 5th, 2014!

Which is still too goddamned long to wait! Well, hey, we’ve been waiting over a year, might as well wait a few more months. Damnit!

*AAAAAAAAAAAAAGGH! In a Women Studies class in college, they showed us all actual film footage of one, performed with a BROKEN BOTTLE, that scarred me (and probably everyone else there who hadn’t seen it before) for life. A few people bolted out of the auditorium, including one of the few guys in the class. My brain also protected me by deciding to black out the last half of the footage from my memory, but trust me, it was bad enough.

The MPAA gives Roth’s Green Inferno an R rating for “aberrant violence”!

OK then! Well, this IS good news! Horror Boom SO cannot wait to see this one; lets hope we don’t have to wait till 2014. Reviews should start trickling in after the film premieres at TIFF’s Midnight Madness in early September, so keep your fingers crossed. Oh, and believe it or not, the ‘featured image’ above is not official promotional material from the press kit for Green Inferno (we do want a poster of it for our office, though).

In perhaps the best news of the day, the MPAA has officially delivered an expected R rating to Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno. The best part? Here’s the description they gave on the rating, “aberrant violence and torture, grisly disturbing images, brief graphic nudity, sexual content, language and some drug use”. With Roth finally returning to a spot behind the camera of a feature film, you had to know he was going to come out swinging. Inspired by Cannibal Holocaust, The Green Inferno appears to be Roth’s most violent and disturbing film yet, which is saying a lot considering his body of work.
