In the red chair: director, writer and actor Eli Roth. Eli comes from the proud tradition of do-it-yourself horror: directors with vision, determination and a passion for slashin'. Ten years ago, he self-produced a movie called 'Cabin Fever', which became a huge box office hit. You might also recognize Eli, The Actor. In 2009, he played The Bear Jew, Part of Quentin Tarantino's posse in 'Inglourious Basterds' (spoiler alert: at the end of the movie, Eli kills Hitler, something that left a lasting impression on Eli and his entire family). Eli's latest is an acting role in 'Aftershock', a movie by another young director with a similar love of gore, Nicolás López. Set in Chile, and focused on the chaos that's unleashed after an earthquake, it might just be the ultimate vacation story-gone-wrong. We've also got a great Panel with Rebecca Kohler.
