Quentin Tarantino was recently interviewed by Vulture, and during the lengthy interview the director of Pulp Fiction, Django Unchained and Inglorious Basterds spoke about one of the best horror films in recent memory, It Follows.

You can read more about that interview, and our Mr Smith’s thoughts on what was said here.

Tarantino may have been a bit too harsh in what he said about It Follows, and while he was clearly giving the director (David Robert Mitchell) some guidance, there were times when Tarantino came across as too aggressive and too nit picky. Considering It Follows was only Mitchell’s second feature length film, you can’t argue that it was very impressive.

There may have been flaws, but these sorts of things can happen with any film, and it could be that the flaws (that Tarantino pointed out) may have been intentional.

Tarantino may get a chance to have his complaints answered as Mitchell has given the director a perfect response:

Now this is one meeting I would pay to see!

Matt WavishA keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.

  1. What an ass hat! Take constructive criticism from a decent director but an awesome story teller and writer who has numerous awards with a cult following.

  2. In my opinion It Follows sucked! A sexual transmitted demon ” s.t.d ” chases after the Charlie Brown Gang. No charisma what so ever and snoopy wasn’t in sight anywhere.
