Do you remember when Eli Roth appeared as The Stoner in his own movie Cabin Fever? OH? You didn't realize that was him? Yeah, insane, huh? And to go from this scrawny, Shaggy looking fellow in this bonfire scene from Cabin Fever...
...to this muscular giant with the appropriate title the Bear Jew in Inglorious Basterds...
...is quite the transformation!
Eli has his hands in so much at the moment, I don't know how he has time to sneeze!
Last year alone he produced:
- Knock Knock
- The Man with the Iron Fists 2
- This Forgotten Day in Fright
- 33 episodes of Hemlock Grove
- 15 episodes of #15SecondScare
- 11 episodes of 1 Minute Horror
- 8 episodes of South of Hell
- 15 episodes of Real Scares
In addition, The Green Inferno was also (finally!) released.
Already this year he remade one of his first movies Cabin Fever, and just last month the USA was gifted with Clown.
Currently Eli is working on a big film with none other than Jim Carrey. This movie, Aleister Arcane, is based on the horror novel written by Steve Niles (which comic book geeks and horror fans alike know his work!). The story has an interesting twist, Aleister Green (a retired newsman) returns to his home town and hosts a TV horror show titled Aleister Arcane. The township doesn't like it, and puts an end to the show. Aleister soon passes after the end of his show. But he's not finished with this town.
Just recently Eli took a break from filming to play with sharks during Shark Week:
I fell in love with Eli Roth's mind when I watched Hostel and Hostel II.
I caught interest in Hostelwhen I saw his name and remembered him from Cabin Fever. I thought to myself "OH, this well be interesting!" Boy, was I in for a shock. Aside from pushing the limit with the level and intensity of the gore, the story itself was frighteningly plausible. It freaked me the frack out! I started thinking how possible this could be. I honestly enjoyed Hostel II even more than the first. GIRL POWER!
Thanks, Eli Roth! We can’t wait for your next film.
