Eli Roth will bring us a Psycho Killer

11.03.2010

Well, the man knows what he likes. Eli Roth is attaching his name to yet another horror project, hopefully one that will be less woefully stupid than THE LAST EXORCISM (a decent movie ruined by its last twenty minutes). He's reuniting with EXORCISM co-producer Eric Newman to give us PSYCHO KILLER.

It's about, you guessed it, a psycho killer who goes on a cross country murder spree and is tracked down by the wife of one of his victims. The story will follow the perspective of each character until they inevitably intersect.

Kevin Walker has written the script, and is no stranger to mass murder as he's also penned 8MM and SE7EN. Combine that with Roth's love for gore, and this is sure to at least be memorable.

"When people read the name Psycho Killer from the creators of Seven and Hostel, they know they are in for an intense ride, but one that will be smart and original," Roth said to Variety.

Rawr! We're naming our movie Psycho Killer! You better be scared!

Extra Tidbit: On the Hostel wall of weapons (seen above), why would you ever choose a gun? BORING.

I read a script review of Psycho Killer earlier this year and it was proclaimed to be one of the greatest unproduced scripts in its genre. However, this is the first time that I actually feel cautious of the director choice, most likely BECAUSE of this script and the fact he has never directed anything before. Though the only thing that has a glimmer of hope is that both Panic Room and 8mm have him connected to Fincher/AKW in a sense. So hopefully he gets at least some guidance from them as

Totally. Just watched Monster Squad, Predator and Night of the Creeps(he was on set due to his friendship with the most underrrated Dekker). Shane Black was trying to cast Tom Atkins as Riggs! How that might have turned out, whoa! Speaking of Fred Dekker that man deserves a comeback or MOH episode or something.

horrible

I have no interest in eli roth's movies. They are always terrible. This whole torture/murder porn is lame and campy. You want to see a PHYSCO KILLER done right then check no country for old men. LESS IS MORE. Eli Roth is a B movie director at best and i hate even hearing that he is allowed to touch stuff.

as far as roth goes

hows this guy still working in hollywood and getting his name as a 'presenter' for movies?

just cuz tarantino likes him doesnt mean that he automatically 'in'. I know it's not what fanboys and movie nerds want to hear, but Tarantino is a weird guy with an odd taste for what is considered great entertainment. i.e. he thinks american idol is one of the best shows on tv.

Extra T.

Maybe some form of "Funny Games" russian roulette? Agreed a gun is boring in that -verse. Please tell me that the scene(actually never seen)shows more guns than the pic above. That looks like the Punisher movie I made on VHS back in '88. :D

So Glad Andrew Kevin Walker has a new original script. It's been 11 years since 8mm. Now we just need to get Shane Black to pick up the pace on his comeback.

Eli Roth is a good director and I loved Hostel and Cabin Fever and thought that Hostel Part 2 could have been alot better. I've also enjoyed his work in Inglorious Basterds and Pirahna 3D and thought that the Exorcism movie looked scary. I hope this does well, because if he is trying to make horror a better genre than it has been, then he has my full support.

problem is: he may be trying to make it better, but he's failing completely. Cabin Fever sucked balls and was more stupid than scary, Hostel was watchable one time only, Hostel 2 was the worst movie ive ever seen, his role in IB was annoying and his role in Pirahna could have been filled by anyone. The guy is a hack.

How was Cabin Fever good? Lame scares, stupid ass ending to credits. His movies are filled with drugs, and tits....Hostel was a shitty cheesy porn movie with quick scenes of torture. His movies are garbage.

Roth should just stick to supporting roles in Tarantino flicks. Or getting his head flattened like a grape ala Piranha 3D...

I've never thought of smart or original when thinking of Roth. Braindead, moronic, sycophant, derivative, juvenile, homophobic, untalented, bland, annoying, obnoxious, but smart and original? No. This sounds like a revenge slasher but with a Pulp Fiction mold, not surprising considering it's Roth.

Ahh, maybe set up a pay-per-view like that Uwe Boll event in Germany a few years back(that was such a bad idea)where the writer from, I believe AICN, got the shit kicked out of him in the ring by that piece of excrement himself, Uwe.
