There are few bigger success stories that have come out of the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) than filmmaker Eli Roth, who brought both Cabin Fever and the original Hostel to TIFF in 2002 and 2005, respectively.

This year, Roth was back in Toronto with Chilean filmmaker Nicolás López and a movie they co-wrote called Aftershock in which Eli Roth stars as an American in Santiago, Chile, spending a night on the town with his two friends and three beautiful women.

Oh, and it also has a cameo by Selena Gomez. sat down with Roth to find out how this connection to Chile, where he’ll be shooting much of his next film The Green Inferno, came about as well as talking briefly about some of his other projects, including a year-round haunted house in Las Vegas called Eli Roth's Goretorium, which opens later this month.
