You know, being an ‘other’ in this world, you’re walking around in a horror movie at all times, you’re always on edge and wondering when the monster is going to jump out and get you. I feel like that’s the experience of African-Americans and queer people in America.
Misha Green
Musically, there’s a movement called the flatted fifth that’s really evil-sounding. It was outlawed by the Catholic Church during the Middle Ages.

I have a very high tolerance for gore and blood. I am, like, the perfect horror movie viewer because I do not get scared very easily. I can really stomach anything so, as a result, I have watched a lot of really disgusting stuff that I should probably never have seen.
Tania Raymonde

People who work in horror know they are contributing to a genre that has always been loved and will always be loved – privately. It’s the forbidden evil working behind the curtain.

You can tell when a filmmaker loves the genre, and you can tell when someone’s just cashing in a paycheck. Then it becomes a dumbing down – a fetishisation of violence that I react very strongly against.
Drew Goddard
If you’re going to make a horror movie, it doesn’t get any better than ‘Alien,’ and if you’re going to make an action movie, it really doesn’t get any better than ‘Aliens.’
Paul W. S. Anderson
I really do like a really good science fiction movie and a really good horror movie. Those are the kinds of things I really like. But, I mean, I’m not into sort of like slasher movies. I like a really good science fiction movie, which is hard to do. They don’t make many really good ones any more.
Paul Giamatti
I am like the perfect horror movie viewer because I do not get scared very easily.
