The Rebirth of Horror

Interview on Salon (it's worth clicking through the ad, which is for Thirteen, a movie very worth seeing. A little overwrought, but Holly Hunter and the guy who played Elton in Clueless make up for it) with Eli Roth, who made the forthcoming horror movie Cabin Fever. Roth really really loves horror movies, and is annoyed with the Hollywood branding of many recent horror movies (28 Days Later, Silence of the Lambs, The Sixth Sense) as "thrillers" or "supernatural dramas". He also includes some advice David Lynch gave him about movie making, and recounts gruesome details of the many flesh-eating diseases he has suffered. Peter Jackson likes Cabin Fever, and I know I'm seeing it.
