JEWS IN THE NEWS

le

yen veteran horror film-goers
are frenzied about Cabin Fever,
a teenage-oriented horror flick
that opens today in area theaters.
The R-rated film, directed and co-
written by Eli Roth, 31, in his fea-
ture-film debut, received good
advance reviews at the Toronto Film
Festival and
set horror-
fan Web sites
abuzz.
This tale of
a flesh-eating
virus deci-
mating stu-
dents on
vacation —
Director Eli Roth: Ben
to quote the
Stiller look-alike.
"Fright Fan"
Web site —
"memorably
reinvigorates time-honored cliches to
construct a jet-black chiller finely bal-
anced between affectionate parody
and stark originality. Roth's assured
flair and keenly timed sucker-punch
suspense continually impresses in this
lurid delight."
Roth grew up in New York, the son
of a psychologist father and artist
mother. He told Film Quarterly that
his parents had a liberal attitude
toward his desire to watch horror
films and TV shows — they would
just sit around as a family and analyze
what was going on. (This liberal atti-
tude continued at his bar mitzvah
party, where he was "sawed" in half
with a chainsaw and his bar mitzvah
cake was splattered with fake blood.)
Roth went to film school at NYU
and served a long apprenticeship
under director David Lynch. His next
project is the teen comedy Scavenger
Hunt, which he'll direct for Universal
Pictures.

Roth resembles actor Ben Stiller. He
told About.com that during the film-
ing of Cabin Fever in North Carolina,
he heard everywhere that he looked
like Stiller. "Thank God for Ben
Stiller," he added.
"In the '80s, it was always like the
blond guy from Karate Kid who got
all the girls. But then in the early '90s,
it was like the New York funny Jewish
guy, which was me.
"It was Seinfeld, Adam Sandler, Ben
Stiller that kind of came into vogue. I
owe a great deal to the three 'S's."
