Both of Roth's films garnered overwhelming critical acclaim around the globe, with glowing review from The New York Times, Le Monde, Rolling Stone, Empire Magazine, Film Comment, Entertainment Weekly, and Premiere Magazine. Roth has been profiled and interviewed in such publications as GQ, Elle, The New York Times, Esquire, New York Magazine, I-D, Stuff, and Maxim. He has appeared on numerous television and radio programs, including MTV's Total Request Live, The Jimmy Kimmel Show, Best Week Ever, The Treatment with Elvis Mitchell, and The Howard Stern Show. His name has become so synonymous with horror that in 2006 he had twice been an answer in the New York Times Sunday crossword puzzle. Roth is widely credited for bringing back the current wave of R-rated horror films that revived the box office, and his films have redefined the movie studios perception of low budget horror films.
Most recently Roth appeared as an actor in the Quentin Tarantino film DEATH PROOF and wrote and directed Thanksgiving, a faux trailer that will play in GRINDHOUSE between two feature films. Future projects include an adaptation of Stephen King's bestseller Cell for The Weinstein Company.
