"It always bothers me to see people writing ‘RIP’ when a person dies. It just feels so insincere and like a cop-out. To me, ‘RIP’ is the microwave dinner of posthumous honors." - Lou Reed

First Trailer For Eli Roth’s Green Inferno
Stomachs rumble in the jungle
The film debuted at TIFF last autumn, but aside from the odd still and a lot of talk from Eli Roth, non-festival audiences haven’t yet experienced much of The Green Inferno. That’s sort of of changed this morning with the arrival of the first trailer, but given its - appropriately for the title - green-band nature, there’s still not too much to see here. Prepare for another Roth lesson in never going travelling. Stay in your homes, kids.
Roth’s tribute to the gonzo Italian likes of Ruggero Deodato and Umberto Lenzi sees a group of student activists head deep into the Peruvian jungle and face the threat of being eaten alive at the hands of a hungry indigent tribe.
Sticking to Roth’s penchant for a clever marketing hook, you’ll notice the trailer is at pains to point out that Green Inferno stars a Peruvian rainforest tribe that’s never been filmed before. Roth has been keen for everyone to know this all through the project’s development.
"We travelled deep into the Amazon, like Aguirre," he told Empire a year or so ago. “We found a village with no electricity or running water, where most of the young children and the elders had never seen a movie or television before. We brought a generator and showed them [Deodato’s infamous] Cannibal Holocaust to see how badly it would freak them out, but they laughed and thought it was the funniest thing they’d ever seen, and after that about 80 people signed up to be in the movie!”
A sequel, Beyond The Green Inferno, is already in the works, to be directed by Roth’s Aftershock collaborator Nicolas Lopez. There’s no Aussie release date for the first instalment yet, but it’s out in the States on September 14.
"and yet man seems to ignore the fact that on this very planet there are still people living in the stone age and practicing cannibalism."
A Bay of Blood (1971) | Mario Bava | Italy | Video Nasty 6 of 72
Twitch of the Death Nerve (Ecologia del delitto, also known as Blood Bath, A Bay of Blood and Reazione a catena), is a 1971 Italian horror film. Easily Bava’s most intensely violent film, its emphasis on graphically bloody murder set pieces was hugely influential on the slasher film subgenre that would follow a decade later.
Christopher Lee attended a screening of the film, having expressed an interest in seeing the latest effort from the director of The Whip and the Body, which Lee had starred in eight years before. Lee was reportedly completely revolted by the movie.
Apparently this is "The clearest photo of Mercury ever taken."
