If you write a story based on a real person, you’re trapped by the details of the real person and his life. It gets in the way of writing your own story.
I feel empathy for people who are trapped in a prison of self-consciousness in an uncomfortable way. We can be free, but we’re so held back. So perhaps that’s why I feel a duty to make my work. I feel liberated when I’m doing it, and I want other people to feel liberated through it.
People say you’re trapped in this genre. You’re a horror guy. I say wait a minute – I’m able to say exactly what I think. I’m able to talk about, comment about, take snapshots of what’s going on at the time. I don’t feel trapped. I feel like this is my way of being able to express myself.
I’ve got a new relationship and I’m trapped in this old life.
