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

Some suggestions for you :

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

I need to eliminate 'like' from my vocabulary. I begin sentences with, 'That's seriously like... ' I hear myself talking in this Los Angeles high-school student kind of way, and I hate it.

Chile could work as a double for L.A.; it's very production-friendly and there's terrific talent down there.

One of the great joys of life, now that you can afford a nice suit, is getting one for free. That's why I like to do press tours - I always say making movies is just an excuse to get free clothing.

I have no tattoos. There's nothing I've even been that into to get a tattoo 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.

When you're making a television show, it's about the story and arc of the show rather than any particular episode or director.

I look at careers like Ben Stiller and think that's a great career to have where you're doing movies that you write and direct, and also act in films, although he's primarily an actor.

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.

What is important to me is that people know I respect the business of making movies.

Anytime you're the first to speak out against something, there's going to be a backlash.

Even post-WWII, nobody talked about the Holocaust. It wasn't until the '50s that people started talking about it.

Well, anytime I make a movie, I like to load it up with more things than you could ever catch on the first viewing.

I feel like in the '90s, horror just lost its way and everything became so safe and watered-down.
