Personal Quote:

[on Hard Candy (2005)] I think it's a matter of taste. I don't like films that are all about gore and blood and stuff. But, this is a horror about humanity. That's really what scares me and what drew me to the project. It's scary because it's true. This sort of thing is happening every day. See more »
