1It's a very interesting point because in Europe there is no horror movie. It's very hard to make a slasher or gory movie. There is no audience for that. I think the main difference between Europe and the US is that there is a kind of freedom. We don't have this Puritanism problem. We don't have this stupid, silly problem with nudity. On the other hand we have this problem with violence. It's very hard to get very far. A movie like The Last House on the Left (1972) would be very hard to do in Europe. Like High Tension (2003) was. It was not very easy to do and find money to make the movie because it was so violent. We don't have a nudity problem, the only problem we have is too much violence. To give you an example, The Devil's Rejects (2005), which I saw before I was leaving for LA. It's a great movie, it's an amazing movie but it'd be very hard to do in Europe. Because it's very violent and traumatic but sometimes you are on the side of the killers and that'd be something they'd have a problem with.
2I'm a huge fan of movies and I watch DVDs all day and I like to be able to watch DVDs that are different from what was in theaters. Whether that's uncut or a director's cut. I think it's an awesome way to rediscover the movie.
3That's the problem. It's hard to release an NC-17 anywhere right now. It's like you don't have access to theaters to many multiplexes. And I understand that cuts had to be made to the movie.
1Member of the unofficial Splat Pack, a term coined by film historian Alan Jones in "Total Film" magazine for a new wave of directors making brutally violent horror films. The other Splat Pack members are Darren Lynn Bousman, Neil Marshall, Greg McLean, Eli Roth, James Wan, Leigh Whannell, and Rob Zombie.
