Personal Quote:

Prison is a very dark place. When you go in, you literally walk -- naked -- under a sign that says, 'Abandon hope all ye who enter here.' You're really thrown on the garbage pile of humanity. It was a very humbling lesson to learn that there were people who belonged in prison and that I had to count myself among them. [Interview with Patrick Goldstein, 2006] See more »

Trivia:

Describes his films as "atmospheric and macabre, with no happy endings, but not to be taken totally seriously". See more »

Trademark:

Indulges in his navel fetish by having several close-up shots of his male actor's bellybuttons (Sean Patrick Flanery in Powder (1995), Jason Behr in Rites of Passage (1999), Justin Long in Jeepers Creepers (2001), and Al Santos in Jeepers Creepers 2 (2003)). See more »
