Latest Movies: QT wants to do a scary horror flick…….how goody!



After doing the best possible job with the western genre, our favourite director Quentin Tarantino has admitted he still fancies doing a proper “horror” movie.

QT who once flirted with directing a Friday 13th film for New Line Cinema many moons back was speaking to Time Out and announced he would still like to tackle the genre.

“…if I had all the time in the world, I would love to make a really, really scary horror film, like The Exorcist. But I don’t know if me taking my sense of humour and putting it in the back seat just to hit a tone of dread from beginning to end is the best use of my talents or my time.

“I don’t know if I could let go of that humour and be able to make something like The Exorcist and keep that tone of dread all the way through. Although a case could be made that The Hateful Eight is the closest I’ve ever come to a horror film. And more than any other Western, the film that influenced this movie the most is John Carpenter’s The Thing, way beyond just working with the same composer, Ennio Morricone, and star, Kurt Russell. The Thing also hugely influenced Reservoir Dogs, of course.”

How much we at HCF would love to see Tarantino’s name above a horror film, Will it happen?  Time will tell!

Since my mother sat me down at the age of five years of age and watched a little called Halloween, I have been hooked on horror. There is no other genre that gets me excited and takes me to the edge of entertainment. I watch everything from old, new, to cheap and blockbusters, but I promise all my readers that I will always give an honest opinion, and I hope whoever reads this review section, will find a film that they too can love as much as I do! Have fun reading, and please DO HAVE NIGHTMARES!!!!!!
