What is the Net Worth of Eli Roth?
Filmmaker, actor, and author Eli Roth has a net worth of $20 million. “Cabin Fever” and “Hostel” are two of Eli Roth’s most well-known horror flicks. As an actor, he has acted in films such as “Inglourious Basterds” and “Aftershock.” Roth directed the remake of the action picture “Death Wish” and the fantasy film “The House with a Clock in Its Walls” outside of the horror genre.
Early Life and Beginnings of Career
Eli Roth was born on April 18, 1972 in Newton, Massachusetts as the middle of three boys to painter Cora and physician and Harvard Medical School professor Sheldon Roth. Adam is his older brother, while Gabriel is his younger sibling. Roth is Jewish and is descended from Hungarians, Russians, Poles, and Austrians. After viewing Ridley Scott’s 1979 science fiction horror thriller “Alien,” he developed an early interest in cinema. Subsequently, he and his brothers began making amateur films. Roth attended Newton South High School before enrolling as a film student at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. He posed as a woman while working as an online cybersex operator for Penthouse Magazine; he also worked as a production assistant on films and interned for producer Frederick Zollo. Following his graduation from NYU, Roth worked briefly as Howard Stern’s assistant.
Roth received one of his earliest Hollywood roles as an extra on the television courtroom drama “The Practice” after relocating to Los Angeles. He then created, produced, directed, edited, and animated the television series “Chowdaheads.” Roth next featured in the horror comedy “Terror Firmer” as an extra. In 2000, he wrote, directed, produced, and animated a series of stop-motion cartoons named “The Rotten Fruit.”
Roth directed his first feature picture, the 2002 horror comedy “Cabin Fever,” which he co-wrote with his college buddy Randy Pearlstein in 1996. The picture, about a group of young people infected by a flesh-eating virus, was a tremendous success for its company, Lionsgate, and established Roth as a rising horror star. In 2005, he released his second picture, “Hostel.” The picture was a box office triumph, but its subject matter was so controversial that it is frequently attributed with establishing the subgenre known as “torture porn.” In 2007, Roth directed the sequel “Hostel: Part II.”
Roth returned to film filmmaking in 2013 with the cannibal horror thriller “The Green Inferno,” which was inspired by his fondness for Mondo exploitation horror flicks. The film was heavily condemned for its racial portrayal of natives as cannibals. The psychological thriller “Knock Knock,” a remake of the 1977 film “Death Game,” was directed by Roth in 2015. The film starring Keanu Reeves, Lorenza Izzo, and Ana de Armas was both critically and commercially unsuccessful. In 2018, Roth produced a second remake, this time of the vigilante action thriller “Death Wish.” The film, which starred Bruce Willis in the character originally performed by Charles Bronson, was also condemned by reviewers for glorifying firearms. In 2018, Roth also directed “The House with a Clock in Its Walls,” a fantasy comedy based on John Bellairs’ 1973 novel of the same name. The film earned positive reviews from reviewers and was a box office success. Subsequently, Roth has directed the documentary “Fin” and the adaptation of the computer game “Borderlands.”
Creating and Authoring
Roth has produced and written a number of films by filmmakers other than himself. In 2005, he was a producer for the remake of the horror comedy “2001 Maniacs.” Five years later, he created the supernatural horror film The Last Exorcism and its sequel The Last Exorcism: Part II. Roth authored and produced the martial arts picture “The Man with the Iron Fists” and the catastrophe film “Aftershock” in between these two films. After that, she produced the horror flicks “Clown,” “The Stranger,” and “Haunted,” as well as the big-screen version of the television series “Baywatch.” The 2016 remake of Roth’s debut film “Cabin Fever” was written by Roth and executive produced by him.
Roth has made cameo appearances in several of the films he has directed. His most prominent performances have been in Quentin Tarantino’s films, such as “Death Proof” and “Inglourious Basterds.” Roth portrayed Donny “The Bear Jew” Donowitz, a fierce Bostonian soldier and Nazi assassin, in the latter film.
Roth directed the pilot episode of the Netflix horror series “Hemlock Grove” for the small screen. He also directed the pilot for the supernatural horror series South of Hell, which premiered in 2015. Roth began hosting the series “Eli Roth’s History of Horror” in 2018.
Roth organized the horror exhibit “Can’t Look Away” from 2011 to 2014 at Seattle’s Museum of Pop Culture. In 2012, he launched a haunted house in Las Vegas named Eli Roth’s Goretorium; however, the attraction closed in 2013 due to the bankruptcy of its parent business. A couple of years later, Roth joined with Jack Davis to establish Crypt TV, a digital entertainment firm that produces short-form horror material.
In 2014, Roth wed Lorenza Izzo, a Chilean actress and model who appears in his film “Knock Knock.” The couple separated in 2019.
In 2006, Men’s Fitness magazine selected Roth “Most Fit Director” due to his rigorous exercise program.
In 2007, Eli purchased a property in the Hollywood Hills for $2.54 million. This residence was advertised for sale in October 2020 for $3,475,000. In April 2021, he accepted 3.19 million dollars.
