Fun Fridays – Director’s Favourite Films – Eli Roth

Hello Film Doctor friends.

Thanks to modern technology, we can help you welcome a Fun Friday even while we’re on our annual leave. Keeping an eye on recent UK releases, this Director’s Favourites post is dedicated to Eli Roth (Hostel, Cabin Fever).



No this Friday’s premier of Aftershock” , doesn’t have his directorial credit but he did help in other ways…

Here’s Eli’s list:

  • “Sleepaway Camp” (dir. Robert Hiltzick, 1983) – Ah, “Sleepaway Camp.” I remember watching this film at a sleepover with Lenny Mead and a bunch of friends in the mid-’80s, and when the movie ended we literally stood up out of our chairs and screamed at the top of our lungs until we ran out of air. I will not say why – and don’t go looking up the spoilers on the Internet because that will take all the fun away. Treat yourself to a wonderful surprise.” (E.Roth for Daily News Los Angeles.com)
  • “Creepshow” (1982, dir. George A. Romero) – George Romero was the king of horror then, having made the classics “Night of the Living Dead” and “Dawn of the Dead,” Stephen King was the scariest author on the planet (and still is, as far as I’m concerned), and Tom Savini had upset nearly every parent in America by creating the goriest makeup effects in the nastiest horror films of the golden era. The three of them teamed up to create an old EC Comics-style scarefest that is “Creepshow.” (E.Roth for Daily News Los Angeles.com)
