Eli Roth on

I Dismember Mama

Released 1972
Distributor Valiant International Pictures

One of the classic gimmick trailers, entirely staged with only a few short glimpses of the combo program it’s pitching (The Blood Spattered Bride and a retitled reissue of Poor Albert and Little Annie). They don’t make trailers like this anymore, more’s the pity.

About Eli Roth

Eli Roth wrote, directed, and produced the horror films Cabin FeverHostel and Hostel: Part II, all made independently and on a low budget, in the tradition of his heroes.  His producing credits include The Last Exorcism and The Last Exorcism, Part II and he co-starred in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds. Most recently he wrote executed produced and directed the series Hemlock Grove for Netflix. As a child Roth was obsessed with horror movies, and was sawed in half with a chain saw at his Bar Mitzvah, much to the horror of his entire extended family. His future projects include an adaptation of Stephen King’s bestseller Cell and Trailer Trash, an entire movie of fake trailers.
