Eyegore Awards’ gushy speeches

Roth's a cut-up at ceremony

Killer clowns and machete-wielding hooligans helped set the scene for the Eyegore Awards, which kicked off Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights on Friday. The Universal event, which was expecting 12,000 people for the opening night of the event, ended up with an estimated 16,000 horror fans by 8:30 p.m.

Honorees Eli Roth, genre icon Sid Haig, scream queens Betsy Johnson and Gina Holden and Christopher Lloyd mingled among horror fans and filmmakers in the cemetery-themed ballroom on the theme park’s lot.

Roth of “Hostel” fame thanked his parents “who were crazy enough to allow me to cut myself in half at my bar mitzvah.”

Accepting his award, he added, “I promise to keep making films to piss people off.”
