[MUSIC PLAYING] MAN: Tell me why you

like horror movies. -My name is Anakin, and

I like horror movies because the amount of

people that get murdered. - --to metal one week,

then goth, or, like, glam-rock, but I'm

still into horror. [MUSIC PLAYING] - --a culture surrounding

it that is very enjoyable and, you know, oddly positive. [MUSIC PLAYING] - --bloody, it's kind of

sexy in this weird way. [MUSIC PLAYING] -Watching a good

horror movie will give you a-- a brain orgasm. -I just like watching

people die pretty much. [MUSIC PLAYING] -A horror fan? Hell yeah. I'm a monster a kid. Aren't you a monster a kid? -From the outside

looking in, they think they're all a

bunch of, you know, slobering, crazed idiots. Um, some of them are. -A lot of improv was encouraged. And that produced things

like, you know, e-x-i-t, exit. You know, which

was basically a tip of the hat to "Sesame Street." -Pretend, like for

instance in reality, that 99.9% of the human

population never heard of me, or thinks I'm a dead French guy. -Sid Haig is the only

man on the planet that can say that he worked with

Lon Chaney, Jr. And Rob Zombie. And I am. -My favorite type

of horror film-- it's usually

psychological actually, the horror that's implied

rather than shown. -I like to do a

trash with a Linda Hamilton Terminator Twist. Something like that I think

would be, like, my dream role. -You know, I think

I'm a good screamer. [MUSIC PLAYING] - --horror stuff, but you also

like, I don't know, rainbows. - --kicked out of here if

I answer that honestly. I'm really not a horror fan. I never have been. -They not only remember

anything I did, they remembered shit I

didn't even remember doing. -Horror films are my life,

um, because I make them. [SCREAMING] -What am I looking at? I felt like I'd

been shown much more than I was supposed to see. -(SINGING) One, two,

Freddy's coming for you. Three, four, better

lock her door. -The scariest horror

movie I've ever seen would have to be Twilight. -(SINGING) Five, six,

better get your crucifix. Seven, eight, stay up late. -I always wanted to watch

them just to be scared, to see how scared I could

really get and stay that way. -(SINGING) Nine, ten,

never sleep again. -We had gone way beyond

The Three Little Pigs, and way beyond, some of

the other fairy tales. -You can kind of

escape your daily life, and-- and, you know, scare

yourself a little bit. I think if you're

always on edge, a little bit fear

is good in life. -People see it, and they're

like oh, do you like to cook? I'm like, no, I like

axe-murdering maniacs. [MUSIC PLAYING] -I heart monster movies. MAN: Alright, and got it. -So my first horror movie was

"Nightmare on Elm Street," and that scared the crap out of

me, because Freddy Krueger is really scary, and he's

really gross looking. -Johnny Depp's eaten

by the bed, I just have, like, vivid

memories from childhood of having these horrible

nightmares of getting eaten by the bed and blood

squirting all over my room. -It's kinda cool how,

like, when you fall asleep, and then Freddy

kinda comes for you. -I'm really picky when

it comes to my horror. Like, it has to be good, or

I will not sit through it. - --anything that's

scary and creepy, possibly sexy in

there somewhere. - --things like "It." I don't like clowns. - --and the clown

were, like, awful, and I would not watch a horror

movie for years after that. - --going out in the

rain, seeing, like, storm drains and just

thinking of clowns. -My mother came into the

shower when I was a kid and would throw balloons up,

and start making the sounds that the clowns did
