Roth is an accomplished director, producer, writer and actor, known for his unique creative vision for horror and genre films. Breaking onto the scene with the massive hit Cabin Fever, and followed by the successes of Hostel, Hostel Part II, and The Last Exorcism which he produced, Roth has firmly established his cinematic voice. He also appeared onscreen in Quentin Tarantino’s nominated Inglorious Basterds and his Death Proof segment of Grindhouse.
