Hustling For Horror

HOLLYWOOD (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Making movies can be a bloody business, but for Hollywood hot shot director Eli Roth, it’s all about old-fashioned hard work.

Roth, who wrote and directed the ultra-gory Hostel horror flicks and guest starred on last night’s (July 3) episode of Fox’s On The Lot, says if you want to make it in Tinseltown, you can’t be afraid to get your hands dirty.

Roth says, “I had every job possible. I was the guy getting coffee, I was the one standing in the freezing cold telling people to be quiet on the set. You have to be willing to do anything.”

Roth wrote his first movie, Cabin Fever, while attending film school in New York, and spent thousands of dollars on it, taking every meeting possible for the next six years to get his movie on the big screen.

But throwing in the bloody towel was never an option.

Roth says, “Making movies is an endurance test. It’s about who can take the most sht. It never gets any easier.”
