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:

He got his idea for Cabin Fever (2002) when he was in Iceland and contracted a case of a flesh-eating disease. The now infamous shaving-legs scene in the bathtub is based on when Roth shaved his face and layers of skin came off while having the disease. See more »

Trademark:

He 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 »

Nickname:

Gorilka

Star Sign:

Aries
