    Awsome list man. I would like to say a few words about Cabin Fever, that is a really underrated film. It’s full of references to the 70′s exploitations and it’s sick and very funny too. I think that many people just don’t get the black comedy in it, being the reason of many dislikes to the movies.

    We can say for sure that Eli Roth has at least two outstanding horror movies: Hostel and Cabin Fever.

      Thanks Marcelo! I agree on Cabin Fever completely. Its one of those movies that blends shocks/gross outs with the goofiest kind of offbeat humor. I loved that combo. Hostel: I’ve only seen it once, but from what I remember I liked a good portion of it. I’m not a huge fan of the torture type horror films like Saw etc. Still, I’d like to rewatch it again sometime just to see how I feel nowadays towards it.
