I've only seen 2 things from him and parts of Hostel.

1. Thanksgiving
2. Cabin Fever (it's OK)
3. the parts I've seen from Hostel which is unintentionally hilarious because it's so bad.

No matter how good a film he manages to make, he'll never live down that scene which I believe will be the worst thing he ever does.

without a doubt - ewww
But I wish the public could, in the midst of its pleasures, see how blatantly it is being spoon-fed, and ask for slightly better dreams.

Although the Thanksgiving trailer did amuse me.

Martin, I had to go read your reviews. I thought you used the wrong color.

I really like where Roth is coming from and as long as he understands his limitations as a storyteller and doesn't let ego extinguish the giggling kid inside, he's capable of some fun things.  If he starts to believe the hype fanboys throw at him, he will become the Brett Ratner of the Horror Genre.

1. Thanksgiving
2. Hostel

3. The House with a Clock in Its Walls
4. Cabin Fever

5. Hostel II
6. Knock Knock
