Personal Quote:

Great films always hold up. If you can't appreciate the great silent movie All Quiet on the Western Front (1930) and Saving Private Ryan (1998) in the same breath, you are missing a whole lot. The same rules apply to horror films: the great ones will always have legs. See more »

Trivia:

When playing the televangelist in the Dawn of the Dead (2004) remake, he quoted the same line he said as Peter in Dawn of the Dead (1978): "When there's no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth." See more »
