I love horror movies. I mean, who doesn’t like a good horror movie every once in a while? It’s fun to get scared.
Tara Reid
If I’m going to direct a horror movie, I’d have to be the one writing it, because I have to make it personal.
Pollyanna McIntosh
Then my first film was something called Cannibal Girls, which sounds like a horror movie but was actually kind of a goofy comedy with horror elements. Like a horror spoof.
Ivan Reitman
For many different reasons, my number one favorite horror movie is ‘Halloween II.’ I love the way it’s shot, and I love the way the synthesizer sounds on the score.
Tech N9ne
I’m not a fan of any genre but am a fan of movies that are intelligent and/or funny. That goes across all genres: a horror movie, a zombie movie, alien invaders, chick flick, or raunchy comedy. If it’s well done, I’m a fan.
J. K. Simmons
I don’t buy into any of that hogwash. They put that out to sell tickets. It’s just a classic horror movie, with the Greek drama formula of good versus evil, and lots of fear.
Margot Kidder
For me, one of the most perfect times to watch a horror movie is when it’s cold and raining outside and there’s pretty much no outdoor activity to be done. It kind of sets the mood.
Kirk Hammett
I remember the first horror movie I saw – I was five years old; it was a direct-to-video movie called ‘Truth or Dare: a Critical Madness,’ which is sort of badly fantastic or fantastically bad. And then ‘Gremlins’ was an early movie that I saw, and ‘Nightmare on Elm Street 3.’
Elijah Wood
The only thing is, I’m terrified of horror movies. I’m scared – I’m admitting it! I mean, I would still do a horror movie; I just probably wouldn’t be able to watch it.
Danielle Macdonald
I am open to them. If I come across something interesting, and I think it suits me, I may do a horror movie.
Ram Charan
Steven Spielberg’s name was all over ‘Poltergeist,’ and ‘E.T.’ was out the same year, which every single parent took their child to. So despite ‘Poltergeist’ being a horror movie, I convinced my parents to let me see it. It was terrifying. I guess this says a lot about me as a six-year-old, because I loved it.
Pedro Pascal
I love a good harsh horror movie, when it’s done well. But there are times when it feels cynical. You can tell when a filmmaker loves the genre, and you can tell when someone’s just cashing in a paycheck. Then it becomes a dumbing down – a fetishisation of violence that I react very strongly against.
Drew Goddard
I think I’ve only done one horror movie, Psycho III. That was a walk in the park compared to a romantic comedy.
Carter Burwell
I don’t think anyone can call a movie like ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ a horror movie. It’s a jolt. It’s a series of jolts followed by a quick one-liner that’s wallpapered with an MTV rock & roll soundtrack. That’s not horror to me.
Brad Anderson
In England, I’m a horror movie director. In Germany, I’m a filmmaker. In the US, I’m a bum.
John Carpenter
That’s what happens in a good horror movie: there are always metaphors of greater subjects like humanity and empathy and compassion. It’s not about the action and scary moments: You really care about these characters because they’re mirrors of our own reflections.
Edgar Ramirez
When I go see an R-rated horror movie, I want lots of violence.
Eli Roth
I was at the grocery store just buying lemons, and a person turns to me and says, ‘Hey, you’re the kid in the horror movie, right? Can I get a picture?’ It was really random.
Milly Shapiro
I’m so excited to see ‘Horns’ because it’s so many different genres in one film. It’s a sci-fi, it’s a love story, it’s a horror movie, it’s a fairy tale.
Juno Temple
What ‘Scream’ was great at was presenting ironic detachment and then making you actually care about the people that were having it, and juxtaposing it with their situation, all in the service of making a great horror movie. It was fresh.
Joss Whedon
A viewer’s imagination is a powerful storyteller, and can often come up with things way more frightening than what you can explicitly show in a horror movie… try to engage that imagination, and the results can be magical.
Mike Flanagan
I like making sci-fi movies because I like watching sci-fi movies. I like watching horror. I like being in a horror movie. I’m a fan. My perspective’s a little different just because I get to participate as well as spectate.
Nathan Fillion
When you are interviewing refugees, each person you talk to has a different story that could come from a horror movie. So many people talk about seeing their families get murdered before their eyes. Then I go to Central Park, and people are talking about their third divorce and paying tuition.
Brandon Stanton
In Europe, there is no horror movie. It’s very hard to make a slasher or gory movie. There is no audience for that.
Alexandre Aja
One day, if I had to do a horror movie, it will be a very realistic war movie. For me, war is horror.
Gaspar Noe
I was watching ‘Sabrina the Teenage Witch’ – the episode where Sabrina and her friend make a vampire movie for college. I wanted to see if it would be fun to make a horror movie.
Emma Kenney
I think when you make a genre or horror movie, you need a budget. When you skimp on blood and special effects and all that, it automatically looks cheesy. But a movie like ‘The Room’ is psychologically bad, which goes a lot deeper than just technically bad.
Greg Sestero
I feel like too many horror writers and filmmakers sort of just assume that the default is, ‘The horror movie must be all atmosphere first and everything else second.’
Paul G. Tremblay
You know, being an ‘other’ in this world, you’re walking around in a horror movie at all times, you’re always on edge and wondering when the monster is going to jump out and get you. I feel like that’s the experience of African-Americans and queer people in America.
Misha Green
I am like the perfect horror movie viewer because I do not get scared very easily.
Tania Raymonde
‘Cabin Fever’ was very much inspired by ‘The Thing.’ It’s really a perfect guy’s horror movie: There’s no love story, it’s just straight-up horror. And it’s so well-done. It moves at a slow pace, but it’s really terrific.
Eli Roth
For me, it’s very easy to write a horror movie that’s just a succession of scary sequences, but it’s hard to find horror movies that have a genuine theme to them that are really exploring some aspect of our psychology and our fears.
Ehren Kruger
I think safely experiencing fear by watching a horror movie makes real life a little less frightening.
Chris March
Racism is like a horror movie. Black kids die because of racism. I don’t know what’s more horrifying than that.
Daniel Kaluuya
Here I was, having done a thriller and a horror movie – why did I have the audacity to make a romantic fantasy? How can I continue to make genre films? Well, maybe I don’t want to continue to make genre films.
David Slade
If you’re going to make a horror movie, it doesn’t get any better than ‘Alien,’ and if you’re going to make an action movie, it really doesn’t get any better than ‘Aliens.’
Paul W. S. Anderson
I think what sets this one apart is that there are two horror movie icons finally battling each other. You actually see them beat the crap out of each other instead of just terrorizing the kids in the movie.
Monica Keena
Some day, I’m in a horror movie, and some days I’m in, like, a sweet, independent feature about relationship.
Hale Appleman
I love horror movie soundtracks like ‘It Follows’ or ‘Halloween.’
Kim Petras
I like the scene in the first ‘Scream’ movie where Sidney gets up, and dusk is falling, and she’s looking out at the hills of Santa Rosa, there where it was filmed, and that’s where you sort of hear her theme being played out. I always liked that moment because, to me, it became more than just a horror movie.
Marco Beltrami
With a horror movie, you don’t want to anticipate where things are going to go.
Ebon Moss-Bachrach
The nice thing about a horror movie is that people go in looking to be unsettled.
Ari Aster
I think crafting a new, effective horror movie is not just about when night falls and things get scary. It’s about setting a tone and mood that permeates throughout the entire movie. So even during the daytime, things are never quite safe-feeling.
James Wan
A good horror movie should have peaks and valleys, a good horror movie should move you emotionally; a good horror movie should be exciting to watch and energizing in a weird kind of way.
Kirk Hammett
Good luck dragging me into a horror movie! I get so scared. It’s an overactive imagination or something.
Natalia Dyer
Tobe Hooper – he did my favorite horror movie, ‘Texas Chain Saw Massacre.’ It’s still one of my favorite horror films.
Fred Willard
At the time I came along, Hollywood’s idea of teen movies meant there had to be a lot of nudity, usually involving boys in pursuit of sex, and pretty gross overall. Either that or a horror movie. And the last thing Hollywood wanted in their teen movies was teenagers!
John Hughes
The horror movie will not go away. Look at the change in the Hollywood landscape as a signifier of its durability. At one point it was just one of many styles of films called ‘product’ that between, say, 1930 and 1970, the movie city ground out like sausages or hula hoops at a rate of four or five a week.
Stephen Hunter
When there’s a great horror movie, people are like, ‘Horror’s back!’ And when there’s a series of not so good ones, ‘Horror’s dead.’ I think it’s all about the quality. When there are one or two good horror movies in a row, people come out interested again.
Jason Blum
We’re gonna try and bring on all the different aspects of horror movie making and bring on guests and show all these old ’50’s B movies. Not the real corny ones, the real cool ones.
Jerry Only
There are moments in ‘Body Snatchers’ that touch the sort of thing that I find scary… like isolation and the inability to trust even familiar things. But – is that a horror movie – or a thriller? I don’t really know the difference.
Christine Elise
I cannot state enough how important post-production is for the success of a horror movie. You bring so much to it with the way you edit it, the way it is sound-designed, and the way the music works with it.
James Wan
A good horror movie – it doesn’t matter how many comedy horror films there have been before. Doesn’t matter how much you think it’s going to be funny. A good horror movie will scare the hell out of you… the moment you sit down and you start being exposed to that story, it’s going to freeze your blood.
Fede Alvarez
I think if a horror movie is really scary, you’ll think about it for weeks, and there’s something kind of fun about that – about our art, really.
Fiona Dourif
I have a very high tolerance for gore and blood. I am, like, the perfect horror movie viewer because I do not get scared very easily. I can really stomach anything so, as a result, I have watched a lot of really disgusting stuff that I should probably never have seen.
Tania Raymonde
I’m all about surprises. If you watch a horror movie, and it’s called ‘Kiss Land,’ it’s probably going to be the most terrifying thing you’ve ever seen in your life.
The Weeknd
At a horror movie, you can see other people dealing with the scary things. They can bolster you. You can think, ‘Okay, if that guy can deal with it, I can deal with it.’ There are lessons to be learned there, as opposed to having a frivolous popcorn experience. I think some of this stuff is good for your soul.
Dan Trachtenberg
The quality of life of European cities and towns of almost any size make life in America look not just like a joke, but a sick joke, a horror movie. But I’d rather stay involved and do what I can to make this a better place than move to the south of France and enjoy the good life.
James Howard Kunstler
I really do like a really good science fiction movie and a really good horror movie. Those are the kinds of things I really like. But, I mean, I’m not into sort of like slasher movies. I like a really good science fiction movie, which is hard to do. They don’t make many really good ones any more.
Paul Giamatti
The most fun part of making a horror movie is watching it with an audience.
Leigh Whannell
People want to be disturbed when they go see a horror movie.
Eli Roth
