Did You Know?
I really like The Exorcist. And I love Se7en, actually. Though it's not a classic horror film, it's a horror film that mixes drama really well. In Cold Blood... especially that second-half... it really captures something. At the same time, I think A Woman Under the Influence had just as much to do with how I shot The Strangers as those other movies. -- on what horror films inspire him.
Asked to direct The Strangers after selling it to Universal.
