I was quoted today in an article having to do with Martin Scorsese’s new horror film SHUTTER ISLAND. Here’s an excerpt and CLICK HERE to read the whole damn thing.
“It’s a horror movie to me,” says John Fallon, who runs popular horror site ArrowintheHead.com. “Sadly, even though the horror genre is more popular and profitable than ever right now, it’s still the red-headed ‘Chucky Doll’ of cinema. It’s not respected as a valid art form by the masses or most of the suits behind them. That’s why, for example, that lots of recent ghost stories were marketed as ‘supernatural thrillers’.” He shrugs. “In my book, you can call them whatever you want, if that helps you sleep at night, [but] the fans know…it’s still horror.”by
