'The Green Inferno' trailer: 'No good deed goes unpunished' -- VIDEO

The trailer for Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno starts out like an educational nature documentary, rolling facts about deforestation across panoramic shots of the Amazon. When a plane carrying a group of eager young idealists hoping to save the rainforest crashes into the jungle, it quickly turns into the kind of clip you’d expect from an Eli Roth film. Meaning: We get all of the signs that the natives will invariably torture the well-meaning outsiders both mentally and physically (this is the man behind the Hostel films, after all).

The inspiration behind this thriller is the controversial 1980 Italian film Cannibal Holocaust, which contained graphic violence and is still banned in several countries. As in its predecessor, The Green Inferno features indigenous people onscreen. Roth’s trailer even boasts that the native tribe in his movie has never before been filmed, which will inevitably bring up arguments over the extent to which this horror flick is exploitative.

Q&A: Eli Roth swoons over his haunted Vegas Goretorium hotel, and talks working with RZA

Eli Roth’s Goretorium in Las Vegas may just be the kind of gruesome, bloody year-round destination horror fans have been salivating for, and Roth himself is as giddy as a twisted school boy about it.

The director-writer-actor behind the Hostel and Cabin Fever franchises, and upcoming Netflix series Hemlock Grove, brainstormed the mock haunted hotel and casino called The Delmont, aka the Goretorium, for five years. Located across the street from the City Center and The Cosmopolitan, on the Vegas strip, already the land of dark-edged glitz and mayhem, it opens Sept. 27. Complete with techie and makeup-fueled special effects, a lounge called Baby Dolls with caged zombie dancers, and a bar called Bloody Mary’s, the two-story high Goretorium sounds like a go-to Halloween hangout for adults. It will even house a chapel where star-crossed, gore-hungry lovers can get married. Zombie Elvis as a wedding officiant?

Stuck at the Burbank Airport, about to board a plane to Vegas, Roth talked to EW.com about Goretorium being the “Disney World for horror fans,” working with rapper RZA on RZA’s upcoming directorial debut, the martial arts movie The Man with the Iron Fists, which Roth co-wrote with RZA and co-produced, and Roth’s new horror flick The Green Inferno, set to start filming later this year in Peru. Chilean earthquake thriller Aftershock, co-produced, co-written and starring Roth, premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival. Even over the phone, Roth oozed as much unbridled horror-loving passion as a puss-filled sore on a zombie’s thigh. Seriously.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Tell me about Goretorium. Frightening!
ELI ROTH: I’ve always dreamed of having a year-round haunted house. I’ve gone to Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights about 12 years in a row. And to Knott’s Scary Farm. READ FULL STORY
