Personal Quote:

[on shooting of Hostel (2005) in the Czech Republic] The thing that is wonderful about shooting in Prague is that there is such an incredible wealth of talent.

Trivia:

He is an expert on the relatively unknown scientist Nikola Tesla. Roth owns copies of every known letter Tesla ever wrote, including rare letters to Tesla's family and to financiers when his projects fell apart. Roth shares similar obsessive compulsive disorders that Tesla had, and has said he feels a strange connection to the forgotten scientist. 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 »
