Eli Roth with Fantastic Fest's Tim League (left):

"I was 25 and broke and working as a PA on movies. I had a giant mouse infestation in my apartment. All my friends were married, had health insurance, 401K plans. There I was with 200 bucks in my bank account while I was cleaning up dead mice in a New York walk-up on 25th Street.

But my brother said, 'But you're pursuing your dream and you're not going to be here forever.'

And he was right. And a lot of my friends who took a job that they really didn't want are unhappy. They ask me 'What's it like making movies? You must be really happy.' You got to be willing to eat shit in your twenties to get to where you want to be. And I'll tell you, it's fucking worth it."

    We're broke filmmakers, and our apartment is infested with
    ants, silverfish, and roaches.

    Our film "The Myth of Time"
    was shot for 5 years in Guatemala, and
    is the 2012 prophesy straight from the source.

    Take a look at our trailer:

    This could give you insight into the fated date of 2012.
