Happy Halloween: Quotes from Horror Directors and Writers


Studio System News
was in the holiday spirit and so am I.  I love this holiday.  I love the genre!  Give me witches, demons and anything paranormal, and you got me hooked.  So, it was a pleasant surprise to find that SSN have gathered their favorite quotes by horror directors and writers past and present.  Plus I added my own person favs as well.

Clive_Pinhead“Everybody is a book of blood; wherever we’re opened, we’re red.” –Clive Barker

“Style is something that’s extremely important, but it must grow naturally out of who and what you are and what the material calls for. It cannot be superimposed.” –William Friedkin

“Certainly Dracula did bring a hell of a lot of joy to a hell of a lot of women. And if this erotic quality hadn’t come out we’d have been very disappointed.  -Terence Fisher   

“I also have always liked the monster within idea. I like the zombies being us. Zombies are the blue-collar monsters.” -George A. Romero

Alfred_Hitchcock

“There is no terror in the bang, only the anticipation of it.” -Alfred Hitchcock

“I don’t see scary films. I certainly wouldn’t go see my films.” –Brian De Palma

“People think that I must be a very strange person. This is not correct. I have the heart of a small boy. It is in a glass jar on my desk.” – Stephen King 

“I don’t believe in using too much graphic violence, although I’ve done it. It’s better to be suggestive and to allow the viewer to fill in the blanks in their minds.” -Tobe Hooper

“I see horror as part of legitimate film. I don’t see it as an independent genre that has nothing to do with cinema.” –Guillermo del Toro

JohnCarpenter“The safest genre is the horror film. But the most unsafe – the most dangerous – is comedy. Because even if your horror film isn’t very good, you’ll get a few screams and you’re okay. With a comedy, if they don’t laugh, you’re dead.” –Roger Corman

“The first monster you have to scare the audience with is yourself.” -Wes Craven

“Evil hiding among us is an ancient theme.” -John Carpenter

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 10/30/2013 – NC is Top 10 Film Location Worldwide, 13 Scary Wilmywood Flicks

cropped-screen-gems.jpgMore awareness for NC Film came out last week with North Carolina making the top ten list of filming locations WORLDWIDE in an article written by P3update.com. Thanks to WECT to finding this gem of a list.  We came in at #9, just ahead of the UK.  In the article, they wrote:

North Carolina’s 25-percent refundable tax credit program recently remained safe from a far-reaching rewrite of the current tax code. As the program stands, the state continues to attract popular television productions, like “Revolution,” “Under the Dome” and “Homeland,” and feature films like Iron Man 3, We’re the Millers, and Safe Haven. Filmmakers can find a variety of studio options in North Carolina to suit most production needs. The Wilmington-based EUE/Screen Gems is one of the country’s largest studio complexes with 10 stages, while Charlotte, Asheville, Raleigh and areas surrounding Greensboro and Winston-Salem also offer soundstage options for visiting filmmakers.

California took the #1 spot, followed by Canada and Georgia.  SEE THE FULL ARTICLE NOW
