Returning to the director’s chair this year is Eli Roth, with his cannibal horror The Green Inferno, which premiered at TIFF (our review) and will hit theaters this fall. As to be expected, it won’t be the only feature Roth’s involved with this year, having built up an extensive producing slate. Today brings our first look at his latest, which should drill right into the fears of many viewers.

Update: Trailer removed at the request of The Weinstein Company.
Clown doesn’t have a release date yet, but don’t be surprised to see it at a festival such as SXSW or Fantastic Fest in the coming year.

I’m not sure I’d think much about diving into the work of Les Blank if only given a plot synopsis. His films, including a plethora now available in a stunningly thorough Criterion set, take on the esoteric sides of America, from bluegrass musicians to the wonders of polka to the taste of Creole cooking. These […]
