Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

There's not a single instance of a horror movie actually causing any violence. People know it's fake, that's why they allow themselves to enjoy it. It helps them deal with their own fears, the fear of things beyond their control. People blow up abortion clinics and then blame the bible, but you would never say 'ban the bible,' you'd say that's some lunatic who wants to kill people and then hide ... See more »

Trivia:

He has never lost money on a film. Cabin Fever (2002) recouped 15 times its budget theatrically, Hostel (2005) recouped 20 times its budget theatrically, and Hostel: Part II (2007), Roth's biggest budget film to date, recouped triple its budget theatrically. See more »

Trademark:

His classical Filmmaking style. Roth photographs, edits, and scores his films like 1970s dramas. He does not use the modern "MTV" style of fast cutting, and prefers the filmmaking techniques not to be noticed, and to take a back seat to the story and performances. See more »
