Eli Roth’s Top 8 Great Goriest Moments!

To celebrate the Blu-Ray and DVD release of The Last Exorcism: Part II, available to buy from 30th September, we thought we’d take a look at some of Eli Roth’s goriest film moments to date.
Being Eli Roth, you know there’s going to be some pretty gruesome stuff in here…

Eli Roth’s Top 8 Great Goriest Moments

1. Cabin Fever (2002)

Ah, the infamous shaving scene. All the more disturbing when you know that it was based on Roth’s own experience with a skin-deteriorating condition.

2. Hostel (2005)

So many scenes to choose from here, but the goriest moment in ‘Hostel’ has to be when a sadistic American client of Elite Hunting is seen burning off Kana’s face with a blowtorch – “not the eye balls, please not the eye balls” is what we were all screaming aloud when watching it.

3. Grindhouse (2007)

Roth directed a trailer for a fictitious film called ‘Thanksgiving’ in Quentin Tarantino’s horror film ‘Grindhouse’. It’s all pretty OTT and gory (come on, what else were you expecting!?) but the human-turkey sat on the table is particularly gruesome.

4. Hostel 2 (2007)

It’s a scene that makes men everywhere die a little in side… For those of you who don’t know what we’re referring to; in order to buy her freedom, victim-turned-victor Beth hacks off her torturer’s genitals, leaving him to bleed to death. We feel sick just writing about it, and we’re also sitting with our legs firmly crossed.

5. Inglorious Basterds (2009)

Clearly not satisfied with simply imagining the goriness, Roth also frequently takes a more hands-on approach. In this Tarantino film, we see Roth as the ‘Bear Jew’ bashing in a Nazi’s head.

6. Last Exorcism (2010)

They say curiosity killed the cat but in this case, the poor little puss is just sitting there minding its own business. Out of nowhere a possessed Nell springs forth and bashes it to death with a camera. It is especially gross considering it’s the same camera through which the audience is watching the attack.

7. Piranha 3D (2010)

In this film, Roth has a cameo as a wet T-shirt Contest host that unfortunately gets his head chopped off by two boats as they collide in the piranha infested chaos.

8. Aftershock (2012)

In this natural disaster movie, a main character’s hand is brutally chopped off as he attempts to rescue a woman. It seems people are right when they say that no good deed goes unpunished.

See what gory horrors lay in store in The Last Exorcism: Part II, out on DVD and Blu-Ray from 30th September!
