That's what people are paying for - to be terrified and disturbed


Two stars: One strikes fear into the hearts of millions by offering up serial misogynistic caricatures of femininity as a form of low brow mass entertainment. The other is Eli Roth.

Step 1 - Create bitchin' horror movies.
Step 2 - Get second billing to Brad Pitt.
Setp 3 - Profit!

Related: While not an auteur a la Roth, Paris Hilton has her own terrifying Tarantino ambitions.

Yet more related: Agent Bedhead offers an exceptional rant.

In the wake of our Cannes coverage, I’ve received a few emails about Eli Roth, so I will make reference to one particular discussion (& semi-heated comment section) that partially explains why he is actually a decent human being and not some psychopath that spends his time dreaming up new ways to torture women in his films.

Death defying Update: Inglourious Basterds star cheated death (hat tip to You Know Who).

Sort of wondering whether the nuclear-resistant Pete Doherty & the Cockroaches (his future band) could withstand that sort of Basterd inferno. Ah, yes... the better to heat the heroin with, mates!

Excuse me, I actually do need some sleep now.
