    Eli Roth feels at home at Comic-Con, so he showcased footage from his latest horror flick to the San Diego pop-culture fest.

    His new film, "The Green Inferno," is set to open in September.

    "You feel the love of movies here," he said. "There's no pretentiousness. I feel like I'm with my people."

    The film centers on a group of young environmentalists whose plane crashes in the Amazon, where they're confronted by a native, cannibalistic tribe.

    Roth spent six weeks shooting the film in the jungles of Peru, saying, "We were up for an adventure."
