Personal Quote:

The truth is, whether your film is about the great mythological character you have to do right, or it's a little movie that nobody ever heard of, you still approach it like it's the most important thing in the world. But failing goes with the territory. Filmmakers are like gunslingers, and you don't win every duel. See more »

Trivia:

In 2009 Martin Scorsese placed Furie's The Entity (1982) on his list of the 11 Scariest Horror Films of All Time. It placed #4 on the list, above Stanley Kubrick's The Shining (1980) and Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho (1960). See more »
