“They’re eating us,” has to be the answer to that question, posed in this new trailer for Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno. I was pretty underwhelmed by the first trailer for the film, but this new one actually brings some tension to the table. These are some scary cannibals, and I like the idea of a bunch of activists falling victim to them. It’s as though Roth is saying that the rainforest can defend itself. He’s wrong, of course, but I don’t look to torture porn directors for profound ideas. I hope this ends with the tribe devouring those loggers that we see. Anyway, I think this new preview looks more promising than the previous one, and evocative of a type of horror film that we don’t really see anymore because it’s quite far from being politically correct. Will it be any good? Your guess is as good as mine.
The Green Inferno comes out September 5, 2014.
