Last night during the screening of ‘The Green Inferno‘ at the Deauville Film Festival in France, Eli Roth received the kind of response most horror film directors only dream of, an intense physical reaction from the crowd. Reactions were so strong, some people were fainting. Judging by the message Roth tweeted he seemed to be feeling a lot of pride.

You can’t buy that kind of advertising. Roth has a talent for getting a reaction out of film goers and for someone to be able to do that these days, is truly impressive. Take a look at this audience reaction video below from a screening of ‘The Green Inferno’.

The movie follows a group of student activists who are traveling from New York to the Amazon to protect a small tribe from destruction by land developers. When their plane crashes in the jungle they are taken hostage by the very tribe they are trying to protect. The tribe are not the gentle people the students thought they were. Soon they realize that they are in real danger and that “no good deed goes unpunished.” The group is at the mercy of cannibals.
