Eli Roth and Lorenza Izzo Talk ‘Green Inferno’ and the Unprecedented Shooting Conditions

Dipublikasikan tanggal 24 Sep 2015
It’s been two years since Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, but the time has finally come. The movie is making its way into theaters on Friday, September 25th! It stars Lorenza Izzo as Justine, a college freshman drawn to a group of campus activists. She joins them on a trip to the Amazon jungle thrilled about the possibility of making a difference, but then her bubble bursts when their plane goes down and they’re captured by a village full of cannibals.
If you dig Roth’s films and some heavy carnage, Green Inferno is a must-see. I certainly fall into those two categories so it was quite the treat to get to sit down with Roth and Izzo to discuss their insanely unique experience making this movie. Check out what they told me about locking their shooting location with the help of Cannibal Holocaust, the “Hell Hole” set, fighting off tarantulas, and loads more.

  • Goddamn she fine....🤪

  • Americans should be more like the natives in Peru, who don't get offended about specific storytelling

  • Nice to hear these two talk about their passion and the making of this movie. Two very cool people. Eli Roth is one of my fav directors.

  • I love lorenza😢😍

  • I just dreamed about her damn! not even in a sexual way I just love her

  • This movie was awful and sick! Omg

  • They are divorced now. They have both decided to see other men.

  • Green lantern

  • You can tell he repulses her. Her pussy is like in her neck while he speaks.

  • They're such an interesting, perfect couple

  • Lorenza Izzo is quite hot! She oughta leave this boring guy and come to Brazil to marry me, really. lol

  • Owe one on the expansion. Besides bout time your crew learned the ropes. Nomerta. Standoff Charge Shootout Western's what you're doing after Hostel Crap.

  • amazing film lorenza love ur belly button and underwear

  • It's interesting that when he mention about the location and the tribe. I thought the tribe, well more like they mention it's a very small community, but I thought Peru/ the natives gonna be very offensive when Eli Roth explains about the movie and showing them Cannibal Holocaust. The natives know that it just a movie, storytelling, it's not real and cannibal thing is way not in their culture or whatever. That makes me wonder when the directors made those Italian cannibal films back in the 70's and early 80's, did the tribes got offensive when they explain the cannibal movies to them? Were they ok w/ it? Not really?

  • Eli Roth is an untalented piece of crap and his movies suck.

  • hell was made for these two people

  • That is one sexy, beautiful woman!! My God.....

  • Lorenza is a chilean. And she's Ams-speak! Wow!

  • The Beeeaaaaar Jew.

  • Did Lorenza Izzo say she went and slept and lived with him and showered with her "best friend"???? 11:35

  • I've seen the movie and knew that Eli is her husband and I realized, why would a husband want the world to see her wife's tits?

    • Rayne Love not everybody is conservative about the body of a girlfriend, they think its fine. But Eli and Lorenza engaged to marry a couple of years later they make that movie. The movie had problems to be realeased because the censorship, they married a year after the official release. When he directed her they didnt thought they were gonna be a couple.

  • Lucky guy ..married to lorenza 😍

  • Roth is a loser his movies suck

  • Eli Roth looks exactly like Zachary Quinto...

    • Who?

    • jing fan wong Lorenza is nice.

    • both look like good looking versions of western turks or greeks, both have a very bad taste for women.

    • I see the resemblance. It's uncanny.

  • the best film ever was "hostel"

  • be

  • your best film was hostel and any movie Will better than that

  • Eli Roth talking about and explaining the movie was way more interesting than the actual movie. There was soo much bad acting and writing choices that he made that made the movie tough to watch. The gore was the easiest part to watch that movie

  • --Piff... *Cannibal Holocaust*. Has no one else seen that movie :D sure.. it got "banned", but still. Its old as shxt, but this movie has to have taken a great deal of its kontent from that movie. Dam near a mirror image.

  • hostel 4 please eli roth guest staring lorenza izzo ans more...


  • Reminds me of Jaws , and people started hating sharks and killing them. For cheap thrills we are making people in the amazon look really bad. Shame on this movie, director, cast everyone. Eli Roth is scum

    • You're the kind of despicable social justice warrior that should have been in this movie.

    • +moh soh Oh shush.

  • I'm hesitant about giving this movie a try because the last movie I saw of Eli Roth's was Hostel and that was pretty heavy but then again I was much younger. This interview was nice made me a little more interested in this movie.

    • Desert Eagle it was true..PIZZAGATE

    • +Desert Eagle its a very good horror movie but it is on the same gore level as Hostel,possibly worse just to make you aware but i loved it :)

    • +Tron Cat Well sorry if I am not as desensitized as you when it comes to the ultra violence, I'm kidding. Must have been a hell of a ride for a 7 year old. Honestly though these type of movies are not my thing but funny thing you made me remember something. I was 8 when I watched The Exorcist and as I mentioned Hostel being heavy The Exorcist I think is a really hard movie for myself at least, to watch.

    • @Tron Cat The age of 7?

    • +Desert Eagle Holocoust is way harder then this movie but still bloody

  • Good interview!
