Home food Cannibal Film “Green Inferno” Pulled at Last Minute from Release Schedule

Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno” has suddenly been pulled from the release schedule by Open Road Films. The controversial horror film was due in early September. Early reviews cited its cannibal theme and “gory violence.” Roth is the very amiable director actor who appeared in Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglorious Basterds.” He directs B movies, horror films, and so on.

“Green Inferno” was already getting poor reviews. But the cannibal theme may have been too much, especially since warm hearted cooking films are all the rage now. Jason Cassidy is over there, just promoted to head of marketing. He’s very smart, a Miramax grad. He may have just told everyone what was eating him, so to speak.

“Green Inferno” was financed by Worldview Entertainment, which has lately been in financial turmoil. Their CEO Christopher Woodrow was forced to step down recently under a cloud. Sources tell me the company is a mess. and that all their deals should be scrutinized. “They just don’t have the money to pay for the release,” a source tells me, even though the company is run by respected CEO Molly Connors.

One problem with Worldview is that they’re struggling to find a hit. After a few clunkers they may be on the brink with “Birdman” starring Michael Keaton. So hold on.

Keep refreshing…

  1. I wonder if the film was pulled because it makes “Greenies” seem stupid for going there in the first place. That would be most of the 35 and under audiences these days. If they are turned off, it would result in box office embarrassment.

  2. I think Hollywood, for years now, has been used as a tool by leftists in Government, to prepare and condition the mind of souless Americans’ for what is headed their way. Thinking Americans still see right through this folly, but the young are so easily indoctinated these days. So cannibalism is intended for the poor of this country. Yes really, what do you thing showing people eating other people on “Walking Dead”. etc. Why are beheadings now featured in “comedy and kid’s shows”? They will telegraph their next moves if you just pay attention. First it was the abotion acceptance (killing babies), then white’s are evil…then just straight white American males are evil, then children fighting to the death, plus many others, now this. Be ready. It’s us or them.

What do you think?
