->''"[[Film/CabinFever Ooooh faced!]]"''

Eli Raphael Roth (born April 18, 1972) is an American film director, producer, writer and actor. A proud member of a group of horror directors known as the Splat Pack, Roth is known for his financially successful SplatterHorror films, sparking the latest trend of R-rated {{horror}} films during a time when PG-13 films were considered more lucrative.

Creator/QuentinTarantino loves him like a brother - they clearly have a lot in common. Best not to ask what that involves. But it sounds like a lot of fun. (Coincidently, [[HeAlsoDid he starred as]] Donnie "The Bear Jew" Donnawitz in ''Film/InglouriousBasterds''.)

!! Associated Tropes:
* AfraidOfBlood: Like a lot of gore-tastic directors.
%%* CarpetOfVirility
* DevelopingDoomedCharacters: A good 99% of Roth's protagonists.
%%* {{Gorn}}
* MotorMouth: He never shuts up, ever. He admits this on one of the Hostel DVD Commentaries.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Would you believe he's 42?
* PigeonholedDirector: He clearly admits that all he wants to make are horror movies.
* TomatoInTheMirror: While filming a documentary about sociopaths for the Science Channel, he allowed himself to be profiled by a specialist in Antisocial Personality Disorder. The profile revealed that Roth himself possesses many of the traits normally labeled sociopathic.
* TropeBreaker: Roth has long voiced his disapproval of the longstanding horror film trope that says that [[DeathBySex promiscuous characters always die (and die horribly)]] while the virgin character ends up the last (wo)man standing. As such, it's common to see in his films that [[spoiler: the virgin girl/guy always dying and dying horribly while the manslut/slutty female character survives or at the very least, is the last one killed)]].
