Eli Roth on

Rock ‘N Roll High School

Released 1979
Distributor New World Pictures

Probably the most sheer fun New World Picture ever, Allan Arkush’s classic would probably never have attained its legendary status without its most brilliant component — the casting of The Ramones, the band your parents warned you about even though they didn’t know they existed!

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.
