Blumhouse Productions will team with Universal and Focus Features to release Eli Roth’s “The Green Inferno” on Sept. 25 — two years after the horror movie sold to Open Road at the Toronto Film Festival.

Blumhouse will release “Inferno” through its BH Tilt label in collaboration with Universal and Focus’ High Top Releasing on approximately 1,000 screens and promote the film by employing a digital campaign focused on creating awareness and engagement. Open Road is no longer involved.

The Green Inferno” is a “wild, fun ride that took us deeper into the Amazon than anyone has ever taken a film crew,” said Roth. “BH Tilt is a forward-thinking label that is helping to redefine how genre movies can be released. I want to express my deep gratitude to the fans for their incredible support of this movie and to everyone at Blumhouse and Universal for making sure fans can experience the film in theaters across the country.”

“The Green Inferno” centers on a group of student activists traveling to the Amazon to save the rain forest. They soon discover they are not alone after crash-landing on a remote location, and are held hostage by a native tribe they set out to help save.

The film was produced and financed by Worldview Entertainment and premiered in the Midnight Madness section at the Toronto Film Festival. Roth co-wrote the screenplay from his original idea with “Aftershock” co-writer Guillermo Amoedo.

    Tell me Hollywood is not controlled by Satanists.

    • George says:

      If Hollywood was controlled by Satanists, this movie would have been released 2 years ago, when it was completed.
      And, House of the Devil would have been a much more popular movie.

    • Fine. Hollywood is not controlled by Satanists.

      • stevenmillan says:

        I thought that Randy Quaid said that Hollywood was supposedly controlled by the Mafia(alias The Hollywood Mafia),for what does Satanism have to do with Eli Roth and his GREEN INFERNO film finally landing a new release date,anyway ? Sounds like Eli Roth hater talk(in unwisely judging a new film before you actually see it).
