NEW: See First Full-Length HD Trailer For “The Green Inferno” – Fear Will Consume You!

Our personal favorite blurb used in this trailer is the one from Fangoria – WILL LEAVE VIEWERS STUMBLING OUT OF THE THEATER.* Now we really want to hunt down that review. But first…

Here’s the new trailer, which shows the set-up, then things going horribly wrong beginning with the plane crash (looks like there are about seven survivors out of twenty, tops), then waking up to find themselves with hands tied or in a cage, surrounded by bloodthirsty cannibals. There’s not a bunch of blood, mostly horrified reaction shots… and you do NOT want to know what that hook-claw on a stick wielded by what appears to be the tribe’s medicine woman with the elaborately painted face and extreme nose-piercing is for. Especially if you’re female. Here’s the first full-length trailer in HD, which hit the web yesterday:

This is why we (personally, that is–you want to wade around in the Amazon rainforest, be our guest, you’re braver than us) will stick to donating/signing petitions for causes we believe in from the comfort of our home, rather than actually flying there as an activist.

Here’s a bunch of screencaps; though many of them are horrified reaction shots from the characters watching… oh, let me take a wild guess… their friends being sliced up/pulled apart and eaten right in front of them. Hey, at least they have their yellow protective suits still on! Because THAT’S going to do them a lot of good. Click on any image in the mosaic for a larger version (and possibly a smart-ass caption).

We also love how the trailer starts off the first thirty seconds looking like it’s going to be a film about students trying to save the rainforest. C’mon, what’s the worst thing that could happen?

*Though we love hearing NOTHING CAN PREPARE YOU in advertisements for messed-up movies, I guess they aren’t addressing our staff here at Horror Boom. STUMBLING OUT OF THE THEATER, now that’s actually possible.

Toronto: Eli Roth, Worldview Re-Team for ‘Green Inferno’ Sequel

Wow, that was fast.

We only need one hand to count the number of reviews online for The Green Inferno world premiere at TIFF Midnight Madness (as of this writing, anyway) and they’ve already got a deal in place for a sequel –and a great title– what, six hours after the credits rolled?

Three Eyeballs

We happened to catch this news because we’ve been up since E0513 of Breaking Bad aired Sunday evening and it took us this many hours to wind down and pretend we do NOT have to wait a week to see who survives the shootout (er, spoiler alert, retroactive) cliffhanger. Since it’s getting light out and we have to accomplish some things tomorrow today, we’ll have to post reviews for Green Inferno later (though we did Tweet a link to one). So far, the consensus among the three reviewers was 1. not enough characterization 2. a little too long to get to the action 3. sickest, goriest film yet from Eli Roth (practical effects provided by Greg Nicotero).  The last act does not disappoint — an absolute Grand Guignol (rather than torture porn; besides, there’s no duct tape in the jungle) gore extravaganza that one blog swore would NEVER get an R rating unless about ten minutes were cut. Most think it’s going to need to go to VOD because it might be too brutal even for the average theater-going horror fan. To which we say THEN BRING IT ON, BITCH!
Oops, another line from last night’s Breaking Bad episode. We still mean it, though.
