Scary Thoughts: Part Deux

My man, Vinnie, has come up with a new questionnaire about spooky, creepy, scary films.  The first one was fun, and Part Deux looks to be as well.

If you don’t know his site, well, shame on you.  You should.  Go!  It’s taken me a bit to get to this, and Vinnie, I apologize.  But hey, better late than never, right?

Here are his latest questions:

If you were to direct a horror movie, what sub-genre would it be part of?

Probably comedy.  Not sure I could direct a horror film and keep a straight face.

If you could erase one horror flick from your mind, what would it be?

Any of the Child’s Play series.  I HATE dolls, and Chucky is close enough to one for me to really not dig.

Do you have a problem with nudity or sex in horror films?

I don’t really have a problem with nudity in any film, so long as it’s at least remotely related to the plot or storyline.  If it’s just for the sake of showing some boobs?  Meh.  Kinda silly.  Not that I don’t like boobs, of course.

Do you have a favourite music score from a horror film?

Not really a favorite, but the most recognizable to me would be from Halloween and The Exorcist.

What are the best settings for a horror film?

New Orleans.  Or, some other place with an equally mysterious, old, and spooky vibe.  Of course most usually involve a basement or the woods.

Are there any guys or girls that you have an attraction to in any films in the horror genre?

Sure.  Neve Campbell in Scream, Rose Byrne in 28 Days Later, and, of course, Salma Hayek in From Dusk till Dawn.  I’m sure there are others, but those 3 aren’t a bad start.

Is there any specific scary film you watch every Halloween?

Halloween, of course.

If you were to write or direct a horror, what would you change or put in to refresh the genre?

That’s a great question….and, one I don’t really have a good answer for.  My primary beef with horror films is that they are generally predictable.  I guess I’d say that the thing I’d change to refresh the genre would be to give a film some twists, turns, unpredictability.

Which scary film gave you the most nightmares?

The one that freaked me out, at the age that I first saw it, 10 years old, was Amityville Horror.  That one stuck with me long after seeing it.

Would you count horror as one of your favourite movie genres?

No, not really.  Sure, there are plenty that I really like, and a few of my all-time favorite films are horror films.  But am I a connoisseur of the genre, in general?  No.


My songs of the day are:

“Black Magic Woman” by Santana

“Werewolves In London” by Warren Zevon

“Dance Back From The Grave” by Marc Cohn

“Boo, I’m A Ghost” by Howell Dawdy

“Sympathy for the Devil” by The Rolling Stones

“Swamp Witch” by Jim Stafford

“Dead Man’s Party” by Oingo Boingo

“Spooky” by Atlanta Rhythym Section
