Principal photography is now set to begin November 5 in Peru on Eli Roth's (Hostel, Cabin Fever) The Green Inferno. The horror thriller's full cast has, today, been announced to include Lorenza Izzo (Aftershock), Ariel Levy (Aftershock), Aaron Burns, Daryl Sabara (John Carter, Machete), Kirby Bliss Blanton (Project X), Magda Apanowicz and actress/singer Sky Ferreria.

Worldview Entertainment, a leading independent motion picture production and investment company, is financing and producing the horror thriller, which is directed by Roth and based on a screenplay he co-wrote with Aftershock co-writer Guillermo Amoedo. Exclusive Media is handling the international sales to the film that will be presented to buyers at the upcoming American Film Market by Alex Walton, Exclusive Media's President of International Sales and Distribution. CAA, which arranged financing for the film, is handling domestic rights.

Roth is producing The Green Inferno alongside Worldview CEO, Christopher Woodrow, Worldview COO, Molly Conners, and Sobras International producers Miguel Asensio and Nicolás López. Worldview's Maria Cestone, Sarah Johnson Redlich and Hoyt David Morgan will executive produce. Filming will take place over the next few weeks in Peru before moving to Santiago, Chile.

This will be Roth's much anticipated directorial follow up to the enormously successful Hostel franchise, which collectively grossed over $300 million worldwide. Most recently Roth co-wrote, produced and starred in Aftershock; produced and co-wrote The Man with the Iron Fists for Universal Studios, starring Russell Crowe, RZA and Lucy Liu with Quentin Tarantino presenting; produced Beginning of The End - The Last Exorcism II with Strike Entertainment for StudioCanal; and is currently filming his new series Hemlock Grove for Netflix.

The Green Inferno is Worldview's second collaboration with Roth after teaming up to finance and produce Ti West's (The Innkeepers, The House of the Devil) horror thriller, The Sacrament, currently in pre-production in Savannah, Georgia.

The Green Inferno was released in 2014 and stars Lorenza Izzo, Ariel Levy, Aaron Burns, Daryl Sabara, Kirby Bliss Blanton, Magda Apanowicz. The film is directed by Eli Roth.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Ah, yeah it's best not to know! But I suppose it is the best type of film to entering being warned but not knowing, addding to the shock value. Do you plan on seeing it sometime?

    @crypt -- Not a problem, man. I researched the movie years ago, and read about what happened at the end. Thankfully, I don't remember. I'm still oblivious to what happens at the end, so that's a plus. Hopefully, hopefully.

    "I can say the movie shows almost everything except the specific visual of what would make it illegal to be put on film and distributed in real life." ..... I wonder what he is talking about? Maybe he saw a cut version, possibly. It says that was posted May 2011, so unless he got it pirated, an uncut version was not released. Not until May 2012.

    Anyhow, I have been desensitized to the movie; having seen it countless times. So I honestly can watch it and not be horrified. I slept fine that night, and I was not emotionally scarred. I think I have seen just about every "f*cked up" movie ever though, prior to Serbian Film, so I did not think much of it, minus the end and the "56 minute mark" he speaks of. Those are the 2 scenes cut slightly in the cut version of the DVD.

    I do greatly apologize if I ruined anything for you, I did not mean to. However thankfully I did not flat out say the end, so I think you'll still be shocked and revolted. Hopefully. Haha

    @crypt -- I'll do that later; I'm too lazy, at the moment. I vaguely remembered the plot for the movie, and followed this link.


    I'm not entirely following, and I still don't get what happens after that "incident", but I think you might've spoiled the movie or me, if you connect the dots (click the aforementioned link).

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Yeah man, link them if you'd like, I'll give them a look some time.

    As for Serbian Film, that is the twist, but the rest of the movie is still crazy. Its very emotional. And well written.

    @crypt -- No, not really. I just remember that bit, I don't remember ANYTHING else. Really? It still sounds like it'll be overbearing. It's a site that beholds dark, vulgar humor. In all of their articles, they sprinkle the aforementioned, whilst being (slightly) educational, and entertaining. It's not a 18+ site, but it's definitely for older teens. I'd say 16+, if that, though. If you want, I could link you to my favorite articles.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Aw man, so you already know the ending? It won't be as crazy when you watch it. When I watched it, I remember standing and yelling at the TV. Which I never have done before, nor since then.

    Whats on Cracked.com? Do I dare go there? haha

    @crypt -- I use to, too. I was infatuated with depraved violence; it amused me. Not in the pleasuring sense(I'm no psycho), but the nature, and disturbance of it. That's one of the reasons I like Cracked.com; they discuss horrifying, disturbing methods, and incidents.

    I'll try to watch both, and I'm more than sure I can handle. Albeit, I have a feeling I'm going to have a bad taste in my mouth. Out of the two or three movies we discussed, reading on "A Serbian Film" really disturbed me. The "father-son" bit, specifically. Morbid, shocking, and utterly disgusting.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx I actually do a lot of research on violent films. I sound crazy, but I actually like watching them. The history on them is what interests me the most. But as for Holocaust, the violence is pretty bad. Mostly rapes that are hard to watch than the gore. But the end is still fairly brutal.

    As for HC and Serbian, they're pretty bad,. HC is an excuse to show violence, for sure. But Serbian has a great story to it.

    @crypt -- I don't know if it were for any specific reasons, but I think it was the depraved violence as a whole. They thought it was a (real) snuff film, after all. I don't think I've seen those scenes of animal cruelty; are they as graphic as they are hyped to be?

    I researched (again, content wise) both of those movies, and they seem to be appalling. Putting an emphasis on the violence in the aforementioned will make you sick to your stomach.

  12. The Cryptkeeper: Resurrected

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Yeah, that's because of the animal cruelty, which is real. They slaughtered real animals on camera. But for today's standard, A Serbian Film and Human Centipede 2 (and probably 3 as well) are far worse than Cannibal Holocaust.

    @crypt -- Odd. Yeah, it's considered to be one of - if not THE - most controversial movies of all-time. It was banned in many countries, and still is.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx In an interview in the special features of Hostel part II, Roth states Cannibal Holocaust is his favorite film. But honestly, I don't know why. It's not all that great. It tries to have a "hidden meaning" that we are the true cannibals, or savages (metaphorically) but it really just does have poor production qualities. It's a good enough film for a "grindhouse" release though. It is pretty damn violent. Especially counting in that it's from the 80's.

    @crypt -- That's his favorite movie? I saw some clips of it, and I thought it kind of sucked. Is it just me, or would it fit the bill of violent pornography?

    Surprised there was no mention that this is a spin off of Roth's favorite film: Cannibal Holocaust. Or at least I am 90% sure that's what this is. Either way, I'm pumped.
