Eli Roth is no stranger to the genre, making his with 2002’s Cabin Fever then going on to direct the popular torture-horror movies Hostel and Hostel: Part II. Entertainment Weekly caught up with Roth this weekend when the news was announced and he had this to say about the project:
“I’m thrilled to be part of this incredible series. For years, I’ve wanted to create a definitive ‘History of Horror,’ a living record of the genre with interviews from all the greats, old and new,”
said Roth. He went on to say:
“Sadly, we lose more of these masters every year and with them go their stories and experiences. This show will serve as a record for future generations — fans and filmmakers alike — to enjoy. I could not be prouder to create this with AMC.”
