With most horror films these days finding creepy and scary happenings in the most innocent and regular of settings—usually at home—Eli Roth wants to take audiences on a trip with his next effort, "The Green Inferno." In fact, he wants to drop horror fans right into the middle of the jungle and watch what happens when a group of young people get in way over their head.

The feeding frenzy that is the backstage wheeling-and-dealing at a major film festival has come to Toronto, and bobbing up from the churning waters are a number of intriguing bodies... We hear from our friends at Hitfix that CBS Films has nabbed “The F Word,” not (sadly?) the feature-length Gordon Ramsay movie we've all been waiting for, but rather a “(500) Days of Summer”-esque rom-com, starring Zoe Kazan and Daniel Radcliffe, and word around the fest has been pretty positive by those who've seen it. It's directed by Michael Dowse ("Fubar," "Take Me Home Tonight") and also features Rafe Spall and “Girls” star Adam Driver.

When Eli Roth first appeared on the scene a decade ago, he looked like he might just be the savior the horror genre was looking for. A wave of hype preceded his debut "Cabin Fever," thanks to a raucous reception at TIFF Midnight Madness, a seal of approval from David Lynch and from Roth himself, who name dropped "Evil Dead" and "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" as influences and promised a return to the glory days of '70s/'80s horror. In the post-"Scream," pre-"Saw" early aughts, that seemed like a hell of a good proposition for most horror fans. When the film was released the following year, it couldn't help but come as a bit of a letdown (especially when held next to the aforementioned classics) but by that point, Roth had already gotten his audience in the door. Perhaps sensing he had made his audience a promise he didn't fully deliver on, he pushed things further with 2005's "Hostel," a truly scary and original horror premise though it was not without its issues, at the very least it seemed as if Roth was reaching for the brass ring of making a truly great horror film and inching a little closer towards it.

Okay, so he's not exactly Terrence Malick or Lynne Ramsay, but it's been six years since Eli Roth's last feature-length effort, "Hostel: Part II." And while he's been busy executive producing a handful of movies, putting his stamp on Netflix's upcoming "Hemlock Grove" and helming the "Nation's Pride" short for "Inglourious Basterds," he's back behind the camera and bringing the blood.

Consider it an early Halloween gift from writer-director Eli Roth that news of his latest horror flick is coming at us fast and furious. As we already know, it’s been five long years now since Roth gave us “Hostel: Part 2,” a film that, like much of his work, proved to be incredibly divisive, but certainly provided evidence that the relatively novice horror auteur was starting to branch out in his career – even if the sequel felt a bit like a spinning of the wheels. He’s spent the last five years starring in buddy Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglorious Basterds,” and producing everything from hits like “The Last Exorcism” to Chilean earthquake terror “Aftershock” (which he also acted in), but now he really is stepping back behind the camera.
