It’s been a while since director Eli Roth (Cabin Fever, Hostel) has had a new project on the big screen, but now his latest drama titled The Green Inferno is opening in theaters this week. Written by Roth and Guillermo Amoedo (Aftershock, Knock Knock), the film follows a group of volunteers who venture to the Amazon rainforest in order to help preserve it, until a group of natives discovers them and their trip of “good intentions” quickly turns into a nightmare. Starring in the film are Eli Roth regulars Lorenza Izzo (Que pena tu Familia, Aftershock), Ariel Levy (Fuerzas Especiales, Aftershock), Aaron Burns (Grindhouse, Machete), Kirby Bliss Blanton (Scar, Project X), and Magda Apanowicz (The Butterfly Effect, A Reason). The trailer looks pretty suspenseful, and knowing Roth’s style I’m sure there will be a great amount of gore layered over with a grim sense of humor, so it should be an entertaining watch nevertheless. The trailer is available here on MADE. Enjoy!
As album #14 on our list of the “Top 14 Albums of 2014”, Spooky Black’s Leaving EP showed that the kid is a lot more than durags and turtlenecks. Back in August he dropped the video for his track “Reason”, it didn’t quite receive attention like “Without You”, but Spooky definitely solidified himself and his visual style. With just under a half a million views, “Reason’s” slow, cinematic instrumental combined with Spooky’s unwavering vocals; remains a stand out song from the artist. 2015 looks bright for Spooky Black and TheStand4rd, peep the video for “Reason” above.
It’s been about a month since we’ve heard any new music from the kid Spooky Black, but all of that changed yesterday. Spooky is back with a dark, murky track named Reason for all of our listening pleasure. With production from The Weeknd’s Doc, it’s clear that Spook is beginning to transcend the local level. As the wave continues to grow, major publications like Noisey, Complex, Fader, Rap Genius etc; are all watching with saliva at the mouth. Some are drawn by the music, some by the videos/imagery; others can’t believe what they’re hearing out of such a young kid. Whatever it is, he’s obviously doing something right. If you’re hating, keep that shit to yourself; everyone else should press play and soak it in.
