Personal Quote:

[Talking about his attitude towards violence in horror movies] I was never a hard-core slasher kind of guy...I never wanted to humiliate people or inflict pain just for the sake of inflicting pain, or do horrible effects just to see how gross I could possibly be. That never really interested me that much. See more »
