Like many of you I’ve always been slightly obsessed with vampires dating back to the prime-time series ‘Dark Shadows’ which I followed avidly as a kid.
Kinsey was trying to study sex scientifically get rid of the overlay of culture and religion.
But the imposition of morality onto science – where it does not belong – has become rampant in recent years.
I think it would be fun to write about movies again.
There’s no question that Whale’s movies are classics. They were wonderful and successful.
Actually I loved Chucky. It’s one of the strangest movies I’ve ever seen.
I had a couple of movies that I was passionately involved with that I could never get made. ‘Richard Pryor’ I wrote for – gosh – over a year. That was close to getting made for two-and-a-half years after that. We’re still pushing it you know. It is weird. Suddenly you wake up and it’s like ‘God five years have gone by.’
No ‘F/X 2’ was a job. I enjoyed doing it but that was definitely a job. I wrote that I didn’t direct it but ‘Candyman’ and the earlier horror movies I made I was completely into horror and suspense and always have been. It’s informed everything I’ve done even the way scenes are shot in ‘Kinsey and ‘Gods and Monsters.’
