Roth Wants Death At Hostel Screenings
Director ELI ROTH is hoping someone dies while watching his hit new torture film HOSTEL because it will be great publicity for the movie.
Cinema-goers have been passing out during the film, which features graphic torture scenes, but Roth remains disappointed nobody has died from a heart attack yet.
The movie-maker says, "I came out of one theatre and they told me, 'You missed it, there were ambulances and paramedics,' and I said, 'My God, are they alright?' and they said, 'Yeah, they're fine.' I was like, 'Dammit, we could have had two deaths.'
"It would have been so awesome, man. THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST had a death. I want a death."
But Roth has seen his fair share of revolted movie fans, who have found the film tough to bear.
He adds, "In Orlando, a guy fainted in a stadium theatre. They had to stop the movie for 20 minutes, they carried him out on a stretcher.
"I was in Burbank (California) the other night and I was watching this really disgusting scene with an eyeball and this guy started heaving.
"He ran out and, in front of a line for all the people (waiting) for the midnight (screening), he was dry heaving and I'm just, like, the jackass there with my camera."
