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. Cabin Fever was definitely a victim of that, and people got really angry if it didn't live up to their expectations that they read on the ... See more »

Trivia:

Suffers from psoriasis, a genetic, non-contagious skin disorder which can have crippling effects. When Roth suffered his first attack at age 22, his skin was cracked and bleeding so badly that he could not walk or wear clothes. He based many of the events in Cabin Fever (2002) on his own skin-curdling experiences. See more »

Trademark:

Photographs in 2:35 aspect ratio to give his films a 'bigger budget' feel. Roth prefers the widescreen frame, which John Carpenter used in his early films. See more »
