    Twitch Interviews Eli Roth

    Twitch has an interview with Eli Roth up.

    D: Alright hey, no biggie. So the flick seems about half boobs and half blood?

    ELI: It’s actually a third boobs, and a third blood and then a third really creepy disturbing mystery.

    D: Yeah … wow. That’s like cool that you can get it down that exact and all. Do the actresses like vying for the boob time?

    ELI: Uh, well we talk to all the actresses ahead of time so everybody knows exactly…

    D: Like do they catfight for ya?! Dude you are so lucky. I remember one time in the seventh grade…

    ELI: No, no. We work out all the sex scenes and nudity with everyone so they’ll feel comfortable. Do you do this much? I mean usually I don’t do interviews without…

    There are also reports of a sequel to Hosel in the works.


    Hostel #1 At Box Office

    Taking in approximately $7.6 million on Friday, Hostel has the top spot in the box office race for this weekend. Current projections are for a $20 million opening weekend – an awesome start for a film that only cost $4.5 million to make.
    Congrats to Eli Roth (JoBlo interview) for the success, and to Tarantino for pimping the film to a bigger audience than it would have otherwise seen.
