Personal Quote:

It's not that I dislike those CGI FX, but the thing is that if it's a horror film, as soon as they figure out that it's a CGI, it's not going to be scary any more and when we see those things with CGI and it's like fancy and big, it's interesting, but at the same time, as soon as they find out that it can be real, not CGI, the level of scare comes down to half of it, and that's just not something...
