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
