I’m off to see Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time….In Hollywood in a bit, and will report back in due course with a review. Apparently it contains a really intense scene set in a ranch which has left some people hungry for a full-on Tarantino horror movie. Okay, there was Death Proof, that was kind of a horror movie, but it was also a bit crap, wasn’t it? Anyway, ‘Indiewire’ asked him about this during an interview.
“Why not make your tenth film a horror movie?” .
“If I come up with a terrific horror film story, I will do that as my tenth film. I love horror movies. I would love to do a horror film. And I do actually think that the Spahn Ranch sequence is the closest to a horror sequence. I do think it’s vaguely terrifying. And I didn’t quite realize how good we did it, frankly, until my editor told me. He goes, ‘the Spahn Ranch sequence is a horror film…it’s The Texas Chain Saw Massacre with a budget.’”
Tarantino still seems to be interested in this ‘R’ rated” take on Star Trek though, and has recently brought up the subject of a third Kill Bill film….so who knows what his tenth and supposedly final film will be? It wouldn’t surprise me if it’s something he hasn’t even mentioned yet.
