realeliroth Happy Earth Day! I’ll be moderating an amazing shark panel today 1:00 PST/ 4:00 EST hosted by @finsattached. Go to my story for the link. Sharks are in grave danger, learn how we can call do things to protect them. Photo by the great @michaelmuller7
realeliroth Jan 1997, doing interviews with the cast of “Bloodsucking Freaks.” I was 25 and had no credits to my name so we can up with “Licensed Cinematician.” They were really fun, it’s on the @tromateam Blu Ray / DVD. RIP Joel M Reed.
realeliroth Some sad news from Tromaville. Joel Reed, director of this notorious cult film and many others, died from Coronavirus. As a kid I was fascinated by films like this. Who made this? How did they get people to act in it? How did it happen? I got to answer these questions when my friend @abefromanking was working as editor at Troma and proposed me to @lloydkaufman to do the commentary track as a “blood and guts expert” when Joel refused to do it over some dispute. I was 25 and had never made a film but I was up for the challenge. I used Yahoo People Search (this was pre-Google!) to track down cast and get stories. I even got a few to sit down with me on camera. I even got Joel on the phone and when he realized I was a curious fan he warmly spoke to me and told me great stories. So weirdly I became an expert on the film and did a commentary treating the film like it was Taxi Driver. After I recorded it I randomly ran into Joel Reed on the subway and we had a great laugh. We even stayed in touch and I invited one of the cast (Detective Tucci) to a screening of Cabin Fever and we had a great time talking about Bloodsucking Freaks and Joel. Years later the genre writer Alan Jones called Hostel “Eli Roth’s Incredible Torture Show,” which was one of the original titles this film was released under. Strange how these things seep into your subconscious. My condolences to his family and friends, he was always extremely kind to me. RIP Joel. He has gone to join Sardu and Ralphus in that dungeon in the sky.
realeliroth Had an amazing elementary school Zoom reunion last night with friends I grew up with, many of whom I hadn’t seen in years. Tara just sent me this photo which encapsulates me in a nutshell in 1983/84. Why am I carrying my books in a bucket? Only our teacher @mikado58 can answer that. This was his rule and you dare not break it! Glad there’s photo evidence of my devotion to both VH&MJ. Hope you are all healthy and safe. #AngierThings #BucketList

I can’t believe this was 17 years ago! It was a horror directors panel with Tobe Hooper, Wes Craven, Stuart Gordon, myself and Eli Roth. Me and Eli were the new punks on the block. It was an honor to share the stage with these guys. It’s shocking 3 of them are now gone. Long live the Masters of Horror. #tobehooper #wescraven #stuartgordon #robzombie #eliroth
realeliroth They say don’t meet your idols but it should say don’t meet your idols until they made the best horror films of all time. This week we lost one of the nicest, smartest, most creative, fearless, versatile and subversive filmmakers of all time: Stuart Gordon. From the moment I first met him in 2002 (this photo is from a Masters of Horror dinner in 2006) he was so unbelievably warm and gave the most amazing heartfelt advice. Re-Animator was a defining movie for me as a director in that he did what I did not know was even possible. Monty Python gore in a transgressive Horror film. Just when Horror was dying he gave it a shot of Re-Animator fluid to the heart. Stuart was kind enough to appear on History of Horror when we praised his work. I look back at this photo and I can’t believe Stuart and Tobe are gone, hopefully they’re together somewhere in the afterlife making mischief and having a laugh pushing everyone’s buttons. We will miss him dearly. RIP Stuart.
realeliroth France is now on lockdown. Same as Italy has been in. By staying home you save lives by not coming in contact with anyone with a weak immune system. Hospitals are overwhelmed, staying in is the only way to flatten the infection curve. I was in Paris a week ago and everyone was out at cafes and restaurants. It turned in a few days. Food delivery still works, grocery stores are open but you can only shop locally. We will not run out of food, but the sooner we lock in the sooner we can get through this. I really hope I’m wrong but so far every country has followed this pattern and we will be next. Watch the posts from Italy, this virus is deadly and is hitting all ages. We are all in this together, staying inside saves lives. A month from now I hope you’re all telling me this is another overblown paranoid post but I have a feeling we will all be locked in riding this out. Stay safe everyone #iostoacasa #stayhome
realeliroth Epic night at the @onceinhollywood premiere. Quentin just outdoes himself every time, I loved every frame of this film. So many brilliant performances, too many to list here. Movies like this one don’t come along very often, if ever. Thank you @ilariaurbinati and @bjohnsonstudio for getting me red carpet ready! #onceuponatimeinhollywood
realeliroth Met some amazing young women doing the @moroccan_hayek challenge in #Marrakech at the spice market. They invited me to take photos and be part of it. The challenge is something I had never heard of, and am now really curious about. Another reason why I love traveling to new places. They made me feel right at home. ❤️
realeliroth #tbt My mother tells a story of me after my 3rd birthday party sitting in a pile of toys and cake and wrapping paper crying. She asked what’s wrong and I said “My party’s over...” and she said “Eli your party is just beginning.” She could not have been more right. Thank you all for the birthday love, it has really been an amazing ride and still feels like it’s just beginning. This first pic is from the set of Hostel, when the KNB guys made me a birthday cake that sprayed me with blood. Well played, boys. The second one is a special shout out to my birthday twin @edgarwright after we did a joint party in 2007 at a bar. This was us at 3AM, hiding in the janitor’s closet drinking water, hiding from our guests who kept giving us shots. Still recovering from that one. ❤️❤️
realeliroth It’s rare to see a work of art come to life in an equally spectacular work of art but that’s what Maximilian, Robyn and the whole team at @ultraproductions have done. If you’re in L.A. this spring do NOT miss @ilikescarymoviesexperience It is truly one of the most spectacular interactive art exhibits I have ever seen and this is only what I’m allowed to post. And yes, Max and I are relaxing in the maggot Chinese food box from Lost Boys. #ilsm
realeliroth 1984: in my mind I was Steve Harrington, but really I was Dusty Bun. The first 3 pics are from 1984, last photo is summer of ‘90, when I finally achieved Harrington status at the Meadowbrook Day Camp Blindfolded Pudding Eating contest. (But really I was still a Dusty Bun.) Thank you @strangerthingstv for taking me back. Season 3 is perfection.
realeliroth What an honor to meet this legend and geek out about horror movies. His contributions to #HistoryOfHorror are priceless, I am so excited for you all to see it. Don’t miss the premiere of this 7-part docuseries Sunday at midnight on @amc_tv. Photo by our fantastic DP @bretcurry.
realeliroth #iostoacasa To all my friends in Italy, I’m thinking of you all and watching the posts. I have so many friends there who are sharing videos with me and what I’m seeing is terrifying. America - please take a look and see what’s coming, this is not just some flu. I am healthy and have no symptoms but am staying home to avoid contact and slow the spread. This will be the new normal for a while until everyone can get tested fast at little to no cost. Stay safe, grab a good horror movie, and hope you’re all okay. ❤️😷
