Some of the best horror stems from mining the paranoia of real-life situations.
Director Eli Roth talks about how he created his year-round gore spectacular, Goretorium and the story behind the attraction at the black carpet premiere.
We don't get a whole lot of independently-produced disaster movies, and it's pretty simple to figure out why that's the case.

When director Eli Roth was looking for someone to write a soundtrack for his twisted Las Vegas maze of mutilation, the Goretorium, he went straight to Grammy-nominated Guns n’ Roses guitarist DJ Ashba.
Debuting at TIFF and currently in the running for distribution through the Weinstein Company is Aftershock, an earthquake thriller from director Nicolas Lopez.
