Personal Quote:

Hype can be the best thing in the world, but too much of it can kill you. There's this weird balance between getting people excited to see the film, and not wanting to over-hype it to the point where they can't enjoy it because they've been told it's so great.

Trivia:

Is a huge fan of Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen. While filming Cabin Fever (2002), Roth played the Olsen Twins's film Holiday in the Sun (2001) on a continuous loop in a screening room, to give the cast and crew "artistic inspiration." See more »

Trademark:

Loves photographing through mirrors. In "Cabin Fever" Marcy examines herself, in "Hostel" the girls at the Hostel are first shown in reflection and Kana kills herself after seeing her reflection, and in "Hostel Part 2" there are several sequences of girls posing in triptych mirrors. See more »
