Some suggestions for you :

I think characters are most terrifying when they're relatable. It's best when your most horrible characters make sense, and are believable. That's when a movie is most terrifying.

When you make a film for a million and a half dollars and it opens at 20 million, the next question out of everyone's mouth is, 'When's the next one, when's the next one, when's the next one?'

I'd love to see us get to a point where you can make a movie and not worry about the limits of the violence. Then I think they'd get so violent that people would get bored of it.

'Troll 2' is one of the rare sequels where you don't have to waste time watching the first one, since the films have absolutely nothing to do with one another.

I'm not interested in going after a part. I think if someone wants me for a part and approaches me then I'll take it on a case-by-case basis and see what that part is.

The scariest people are usually the sweetest.

I've realized that I can't multitask in the writing department; I can only kind of do one thing at a time.

A comedy can actually get funnier and funnier. Even though you know the joke, you enjoy it so much, it's the facial expression, you laugh. The laugh doesn't wear off. It could be with you for thirty years.

Everyone is so terrified of being labeled a racist.

I think horror should never be safe, whether it's violent or non violent.

You know, I'm from Boston, and in Boston, you are born with a baseball bat in your hand.

Look at comic books. It used to be something that only geeks were into. And now it's everywhere.

For a long time, I had a crazy girl dating habit.

There's fear in everything, but we can't just succumb to that. We have to suppress it, so we get used to suppressing fear to make it through the our day. Otherwise, we'd become paralyzed by them.
