post-eliroth.jpgTo date, director Eli Roth has failed to really make any film that is more than just one German dude hacking up a few American vacationers. In fact, if you remove all of the “Special Thanks” roles from his filmography, you begin to see that Roth has made 3 lame torture porn flicks and one entertaining trailer for Grindhouse. At this point, he should be thanking his lucky stars that he ever met Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez. So it makes sense that with his best film being a 2 minute horror trailer for someone else’s film, that Roth’s next project would be a compilation of similar trailers into one giant heap of Trailer Trash. The only problem is that as Bloody-Disgusting reports, Roth has this convoluted sense of ability. He thinks he can hang with Monty Python:

“I want to make a film like “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” which I consider to be the greatest achievement in the history of cinema. The best part is I get to shoot some new THANKSGIVING scenes, as well as other holiday slasher films I’ve always dreamed of making but never would because they’d completely ruin me. I can’t wait to shoot!”

Ok, I get it. He wants to make it like Monty Python. The only problem is that in order to execute on said claim, he would have to possess the ability. Unfortunately for Roth, he does not, and his Trailer Trash film may be entertaining, but I would call it a bit of blasphemy to say that it will be any better than his other “trash”.

Trailer Trash is due out on August 22, 2008.
