HOLLYWOOD – Director of the Death Wish remake and The Green Inferno Eli Roth is the new Dario Argento, Eli Roth stated today.
Eli Roth is famous for eyebrows, gory movies and more eyebrows. Breaking out with the Hostel movies and Cabin Fever, he’s back with a Bruce Willis starring remake of the revenge thriller Death Wish.
He came into the Studio Exec bungalow to discuss the claims that he’s the American version of Italian horror maestro Dario Argento.
I really think Eli Roth is the US version of Dario Argento.
You’re talking about yourself in the third person.
I know. Eli Roth often talks about himself in the third person. He considers it a post-feminist tribute to The Third Man.
But what is this bunk about you being Dario Argento?
Eli Roth really is the new Dario Argento. Think about it. He makes horror movies. As did Dario. They both have an o and an r and an i in their names. They both have hands. The similarities are endless.
Do you think you’ve made a film as good as Profondo Rosso or Suspiria?
Eli Roth refuses to split hairs. Mr Roth has left the building.
