If you thought everyone in Hollywood was drinking the SJW Kool Aid, think again. Horror director Eli Roth (Cabin Fever, Hostel) is just as sick of SJWs as you and I are. In an interview with the L.A. Times, Roth discussed how the film was inspired by SJWs:
I wanted to write a movie that was about modern activism. I see that a lot of people want to care and want to help, but in general I feel like people don’t really want to inconvenience their own lives. And I saw a lot of people just reacting to things on social media. These social justice warriors. ‘This is wrong, this is wrong, this is wrong.’ And they’re just tweeting and retweeting. They’re not actually doing anything. Or you see people get involved in a cause that they don’t really know a lot about and they go crazy about it. I wanted to make a movie about kids like that.
The Green Inferno is about a group of college students that head to the Amazon in order to try and save it. Unfortunately for these student activists, their plane crashes deep in the Amazon forest only for the survivors to become captured and consumed by a tribe of cannibals. The movie draws inspiration from films like Cannibal Holocaust (1980), which was not only controversial in its own right but was also filmed under the working title The Green Inferno.
While the movie premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival back in 2013, it won’t be hitting US theaters until this coming September. It seems like the movie has become more relevant since it began production in 2012. In fact, Roth had finished his first draft around the time Kony 2012 was a thing. I know for a fact that our readers have probably been aware of the SJW problem for a long time, but the timing of this film’s release couldn’t get any better, especially considering 2014 was the year that the tide began turning against SJWs.
It didn’t take long for SJWs to sound off on The Green Inferno. One website in particular blasted an ad campaign for the movie that used hashtags like #NativeLivesMatter and #JungleGate. What’s not surprising is that a pro”-SJW website like the one I linked to would hire writers who use imaginary Tumblr words like “douchebro” or “dickheadness.
Ironically, someone has also put up a petition to block the release of The Green Inferno. The petition was created because SJWs thought that the portrayal of Amazonian natives in the movie was negative. As of this writing, the petition has just over 600 signatures and most of the people signing it are just trolling.
The Green Inferno hits theaters September 25 in the United States. Currently, it’s getting good reviews with a critic score of 63% on Rotten Tomatoes. While I’m not necessarily a fan of torture porn, I will definitely be giving this movie a watch.
