Ranging from the increasingly popular “found footage” movies to a cautionary tale of extreme cannibalism, this year’s collection contains something for everyone. The following list counts down the hottest new horror movies that will be hitting screens in 2014.
When the activists reach their destination deep in the Amazon jungle, the group is taken hostage by the very tribe they were sent to protect.
It soon becomes apparent that the tribe are cannibals and are definitely not the ones in need of protecting.
The movie stars Lorenza Izzo and Ariel Levy and is directed by Eli Roth of “Hostel” and “Cabin Fever” fame. Roth ran into problems when attempting to find extras to cast in his movie. He approached the local villagers but quickly realised that they had never even seen a movie before and had no idea what he was asking of them.
The producers than arranged a screening of classic cannibal horror “Cannibal Holocaust” for the locals. The entire village was impressed with the movie and agreed to become extras. Most of the scenes were shot in Peru and Chile to the delight of the director.
Roth has expressed his love of South America in previous interviews and stated “”I’ve been working on this idea for several years, and was inspired by filming in Chile and cannot wait to get back. I believe this will be the scariest and most intense film I have made to date.”
