I get offered a lot of the same type of thing… The teenage slasher movies.
Casey Affleck
We felt like we had done as much as you can do with the slasher genre. We were trying to find the next group of scary movies that were ripe for parody.
Keenen Ivory Wayans
I’m looking at some comedic horror films because I have often been accused of being too dark. I’m not dark, not compared with ‘Saw’ or anything like that. So I’m looking at live-action horror films, but not slasher ones – ones that have humor and maybe some social satire.
Henry Selick
I don’t like the slasher stuff, myself, but I do like the psychological horror of Roman Polanski and that world. But, it’s curious to me why people do like to be afraid.
Dylan McDermott
Hannibal Lecter stole Leatherface’s mask and ported the slasher conventions into the thriller for the early ’90s.
Stephen Graham Jones
I do like sci-fi, and I do like horror – those are my favorite genres. Good horror, though, not like slasher horror… psychological horror like ‘The Shining’ – really good stuff!
Mark Pellegrino
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
What you don’t want is for violence and gore to become more important than character and structure. A lot of slasher movies from the eighties were only focused on violence and gore, which robs the human beings in the story of any empathetic reaction from the audience, and instead makes them cheer for the gore.
Mike Flanagan
I’ve never done a horror movie, like a full-on gore slasher film.
Asa Butterfield
The slasher film is such a neat, self-contained genre.
Stephen Graham Jones
I’m less interested in slasher, and go more for roles that can affect you on a personal level. I’m interested in human empathy in the movies I see, and in the ones I am a part of.
Joshua Leonard
I like zombie movies, and I like genre movies a lot. To watch. Less so to make, I think. But I grew up on that stuff. I would just grow up watching a lot of horror movies, a lot of slasher movies and then zombie movies.
Jonathan Levine
I don’t personally like slasher movies that make you scream in the movie theater.
Peter Stormare
Those films that really speak to the primal fear that we, as human beings, have about the unknown have always intrigued me. That’s the really scary thing, not the slasher, macabre movies. It’s the ones that deal with the inner fear: the unknown realms and the mysticisms that are scary.
Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje
Horror is fascinating because it’s so seasonal and it’s like you’ve got these periods where slasher movies are in and it’s like everyone loves them. Next thing you know zombies are in. Then vampires are acceptable.
Mike Flanagan
Nobody’s favorite movie is some dark, dysfunctional slasher story. Everybody’s favorite song is a sentimental song. So why all of a sudden is it bad to be sentimental in books?
Mitch Albom
When you do a slasher film, you find yourself repeating the same kind of scene, then it becomes not very challenging and not very interesting.
Alexandre Aja
I was never a big fan of horror. I got into it making these films, but I don’t ever see myself doing slasher movies. The kind of horror film I like is ‘The Shining.’ I don’t really like slashers, but I love thrillers with tension.
Caity Lotz
The normal storyline of a horror film or a slasher film is the young, beautiful college folks go camping and get systematically killed by the person in a mask. So that’s how it normally is.
John Schneider
I never play a villain that I don’t have something I can either do or say so the audience sees there is something redeemable about them. In other words, I don’t want to do evil for evil’s sake. I don’t want to do Jason slasher movies. There’s no point in that.
Brion James
I really geek out with horror and like to delve into the subgenres, whether it’s comedy or slasher or sci-fi.
Lydia Hearst
When I wrote ‘Hatchet,’ I knew that I was not re-inventing the wheel. That was never my intention. My goal was to make an ’80s-style slasher flick that actually holds up. Basically, I wanted to make the movie that I wanted to see and pay no mind to current trends or conventions.
Adam Green
Psychological horror I’ve always appreciated, like ‘Rosemary’s Baby.’ The slasher movies and the grotesque movies are the ones that I’ve really been off for a while.
John Carroll Lynch
‘Ravenswood’ is horror. It’s not slasher, but it’s psychological and spiritual horror.
Tyler Blackburn
It is so hard nowadays to find a movie that I like. I don’t mind blood and gore. But I mind when its a slasher film, and its some guy looking for women. I am opposed to that kind of thing. Blood and gore? I love that kind of thing.
Cassandra Peterson
Well when I hear ‘slasher’ I think about the 80s.
Mike Flanagan
