I think people are really harsh on Eli! Cabin Fever and Hostel are decent films (esp Hostel), haven't seen the second film however... I think really the man who we should be focusing on from the new-wave torture-porn directors is Rob Zombie... now THERE'S a knob-jockey!

Eli Roth is a complete and utter cock.

Cabin Fever and Hostel are two of the worst films I have seen in years, and when you add the film Saw to the mix, you have the creation of a terrible trend in film-making.

I have nothing against violence, nor do object to gore (I'm a HUGE fan of the Evil Dead films) but the incredibly poor writing being passed off as works of art...it's an absolute disgrace!
 
I partly blame The Blair Witch Project, since its release a lot of people are of the opinion that any old talentless crap is worth viewing. 
Harsh words, perhaps, but to any Blair Witch fans out there, rest assured that I put that way above the other three I mentioned before it.

Oh, and will anyone help me throw the remake of Dawn Of The Dead on this ever-growing pile of pathetic excuses for Horror films?  I sincerely hope so!

I'm with Tiger on this one . . . I haven't seen Hostel yet, but Cabin Fever was one of the worst films I've seen in recent memory. Incoherent, boring, nonsensical . . . and there isn't even enough gross out to call it a gross out film. It wasn't much longer than 90 minutes and it felt like three hours.

I tend to like Saw (the first one) because it reminded me of old campfire tales, but it wasn't phenomenal.

Blair Witch was a good base idea with horrible execution. Here's to hoping that Cloverfeild can make it work.

And yes, the Dawn of the Dead remake was a complete waste of time. Why remake a film that's phenomenal to start with and turn it into a run-of-the-mill gore pic?

But back to Eli Roth . . . his first film was a travesty, so bad in fact that I don't hold out much hope for his others.

Although, I've heard he's a jerk-off AND a great guy . . . same that I've heard about Brett Ratner.

It's kinda sad to make money doing torture porn, it's not like he even tried with Hostel, the first half is filled with boobs, the second is filled with extreme gore, just what the sad group of violence-craving teenagers wants. Extreme gore like the stuff in Hostel and Saw shouldn't carry the movie. Bleh, I'm gonna go watch Se7en again.

Cabin Fever, after all the hype was just a poorly written averagely directed standard horror flick and Hostel had me until the 'torture' effects, that eyeball just made me burst out laughing. Im all for a new generation of horror directors, its my favourite genre but i certainly dont think Roth is the saviour that a lot of people have been crowing on about.

Ive seen some interviews and listened to his dvd commentaries and he just comes across as arrogant and that he believes his own hype, shame as wouldve been good to have a genuine horror director make his mark

I think he's very under-rated.

Cabin Fever was a terrific, original film, but it gets a really hard time from people for reasons I don't quite understand.
