Casting Eli Roth as a horny dweeb in South America is either genius or completely misguided, but either way, it's a bit of a switchup to see him as the victim of horrific carnage, rather than the one dispensing it. And this new red band trailer for "Aftershock" doesn't hold back on the babes or bloodsheed.

Before Eli Roth was a very successful filmmaker and producer, he was a regular nerd like everyone else, and like the rest of the planet, he was in line in 1999 eagerly awaiting "Star Wars: Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace." And just like many, many fans of the longtime franchise, he was super bummed, angry and disappointed with what George Lucas delivered. And he let his feelings be known with the power of the pen (or rather, the keyboard).

Okay, so he's not exactly Terrence Malick or Lynne Ramsay, but it's been six years since Eli Roth's last feature-length effort, "Hostel: Part II." And while he's been busy executive producing a handful of movies, putting his stamp on Netflix's upcoming "Hemlock Grove" and helming the "Nation's Pride" short for "Inglourious Basterds," he's back behind the camera and bringing the blood.

Though its title seems to preclude the possibility of further films, the unnecessary sequel to the Eli Roth-produced found-footage horror, “The Last Exorcism Part II,” is set to scare some money out of audiences this March. To date all we’ve seen is a still and a poster, but now the studio has finally released a trailer via Yahoo.

The Scientist, Prince Rakeem, The Abbott, Bobby Digital...these are just a few of the names RZA has had over the years as a hip hop artist, music producer and leader of the Wu Tang Clan. But this Friday, he'll get set to add a new name to his repertoire -- Director -- as he unveils "The Man With The Iron Fists." An ambitious, colorful kung fu flick, the likes of which Hollywood hasn't produced in years, it's quite the undertaking, but as this new featurette reveals, RZA had the advice and insight of some pretty notable people to guide him.

Consider it an early Halloween gift from writer-director Eli Roth that news of his latest horror flick is coming at us fast and furious. As we already know, it’s been five long years now since Roth gave us “Hostel: Part 2,” a film that, like much of his work, proved to be incredibly divisive, but certainly provided evidence that the relatively novice horror auteur was starting to branch out in his career – even if the sequel felt a bit like a spinning of the wheels. He’s spent the last five years starring in buddy Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglorious Basterds,” and producing everything from hits like “The Last Exorcism” to Chilean earthquake terror “Aftershock” (which he also acted in), but now he really is stepping back behind the camera.

While the rest of Hollywood spends the next few months jockeying their awards season horses, Universal doesn't have have to worry about that with "The Man With The Iron Fists." It's a kung fu flick, so done and done right? Well, as folks who have been following the RZA directed movie know by now, it's tossing in a few more factors that will make it a bit more than your average chop-socky actioner.

Despite all the premieres of awards contenders, the Toronto International Film Festival, like many festivals these days, is very genre friendly, at least late at night -- “The Raid” premiered last year as part of the midnight screening series -- and one of the higher profile films is the Eli Roth-starring disaster film “Aftershock.” Co-written by Roth and helmer Nicolas Lopez, the film follows a group of attractive young people who “are having the best of times whooping it up in a dance club [in Chile], until a violent earthquake brings the entire city down around them.” The story is a straight-up natural disaster film, with the danger being “looters, escaped convicts, and the inevitable aftershocks.” We’re not really sold on Roth as an actor, but as long as the film stays squarely in shlock territory it shouldn’t be a problem. Check out some images from the film below, as well as a short clip of some of the destruction “Aftershock” promises. [Collider]

It ended up going a little unsung on release earlier this year, and not every Playlist staffer dug it, but this writer was quite taken with Ti West's "The Innkeepers" when he finally caught up with a few months back. An atmospheric, unsettling little ghost story with some fine performances from Sara Paxton and Pat Healy, it might have some silly moments and come a little unstuck at the end, but it was well made and genuinely creepy, cementing West's position as one of the fastest rising names in independent horror cinema.
