Does Eli Roth Have An 'Evil Gene'?

October 29th, 2011 12:00pm EDT

Actor/director Eli Roth is no stranger to exploring the nature of evil. As a master of horror with films like "Inglorious Basterds" and "Hostel," Roth turns his lens to research possibly the most horrifying monster of them all - the average American.

So does Hollywood's famous horror director have a little extra "edge" in his craft?

Interview with the Vampire
Oct 29 – Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (1994): When Twlight hit it big a couple of years ago, the main complaint about the series was that it sissified vampires. After all, Stephanie Meyer’s brood of moody nightwalkers is an attractive bunch, one that sparkles in the sunlight and pines over high school crushes—traits that don’t really cut an intimidating figure. But when you look back on vampires in popular culture, they have always been an effete bunch of nocturnal dandies. So complaints that Robert Pattison was too pretty and too teenie-bopper to play an effective vam...
