I often wonder if there is anyone else out there who is as ambivalent to Eli Roth as a director or producer as myself. Sure, Roth has proven himself to be a more than capable badass with a baseball bat in Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds. And he’s also proven himself to be an interesting guy in the many passing conversations he’s shared with FSR staffers. But as a producer or director, he’s wholly underwhelming and lacks anything resembling creativity or ambition. That is, unless you consider his dungeon of torture-porn titles to be creative. Which I don’t.

Enter the first still from his upcoming flick Cotton, which the chaps at Bloody-Disgusting have called a “Cloverfield-inspired exorcism movie” about an evangelical minister who turns against his religious higher-ups, participating in a documentary that will chronicle his last exorcism. In the image (seen above and enlarged by clicking and visiting the source) we see a possessed girl who has been bent over by whatever ails her. Either that, or she’s doubling over in pain the wrong way and is having a wicked menstrual cycle. It’s crass, I know, but look at the placement of the blood and tell me that I’m wrong.

Cotton is directed by Daniel Stamm (A Necessary Death) and will star Patrick Fabian, Iris Bahr and several other people you’ve never heard of before. It is set to hit theaters sometime next year.
