Watch: Trailer for Eli Roth’s ‘Green Inferno’ Teases Horror in the Amazon

Eli Roth is back with his first feature directorial effort since 2007’s “Hostel: Part II,” and the first trailer for “The Green Inferno” promises all the gore and horror his fans have come to expect.

Roth directed, produced and co-wrote (with Guillermo Amoedo) the horror-thriller, which follows a group of student activists who travel from New York to the Amazon with good intentions — but end up at the mercy of the cannibalistic tribe they went to help save from extinction.

Along with shots that tease the students’ demise, the end of the trailer provides the following message: “Filmed on location in the rainforest of Peru, the native tribe featured in this motion picture has never been filmed before.”

Lorenza Izzo, Ariel Levy, Daryl Sabara and Kirby Bliss star. Open Road Films acquired the film at the Toronto Film Festival and plan for a Sept. 5 release.
