  • All I've ever wanted to do is darken the day and brighten the night.
  • I don't take accusations of selling out lightly.
  • Some people think that horror films are some sort of second class filmmaking, and the only way to bypass that thinking is being proud of the fact that we do it.
  • I firmly believe that a story is only as good as the villain.
  • Most 'Horror' movies nowadays aren't horror movies. They don't strike me as being horrific. That's why I am very careful when using the word 'Horror' to describe something
