Josh Hartnett, actor

I had a tremendous horror of going into the Army. That is probably why I went to college for so long.

Many of my short stories (all unpublished) were horror, and the novel I'd just finished was horror, too.

George Stephen, businessman

[Horror fiction] shows us that the control we believe we have is purely illusory, and that every moment we teeter on chaos and oblivion.

Clive Barker, writer

Write me a creature that thinks as well as a man or better than a man, but not like a man.

John W. Campbell, writer

I love when you go to a horror film with real horror fans and everybody's there watching, getting involved and screaming. That's when it's most alive and exciting for me.

David Arquette, actor

The ugly is very appealing to man. It's instinct. One shrinks from the ugly, yet wants to look at it. There's a devilish fascination in it. We extract pleasure from horror.

Sonya Levien,

Many great horror stories are period pieces and English actors have a facility for historic characters.

Robert Englund, actor

I would like to see the technology used to explore more period horror genre works, for example, E. A. Poe.

Robert Englund, actor

In all the horror films that I have done, all of those women were strong women. I don't feel I ever played the victim, although I was always in jeopardy.

Adrienne Barbeau, actress

I'll probably pursue doing more movies, but not horror or movies with killers in them. I'll try to stick to happy movies. I want to act and direct like Jodie Foster. I admire her because she went to college and she's still doing the same thing.

Lindsay Lohan, actress

This is an area you always need to address when you're dealing with Dracula is the fact that there is something kind of attractive in his darkness - which there isn't in other horror characters.

Nevertheless the passions, whether violent or not, should never be so expressed as to reach the point of causing disgust; and music, even in situations of the greatest horror, should never be painful to the ear but should flatter and charm it, and thereby always remain music.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, musician

In horror movies today it's lots of fast cut shot and lots of loud noises on the soundtrack. I tried to do the opposite. Playing with silence for instance.

One of the best things that ever happened to me was Rocky Horror being a total flop in New York as a play. I mean, it was a disaster, and it was the night of the long knives as far as the critics were concerned.

Lots of people I know have bootlegged tapes of performances and if they play it I will be transported back sometimes with happiness, sometimes with horror.

Chris Bailey, musician

Most horror films fail to scare me. I think "The Ring" plays more as a psychological thriller. It's smarter, there's more character development and some of the themes explored go a little deeper.

Martin Henderson, actor

It's a very good time for horror. This business certainly has changed, but there's still room for serious horror films. Look at 28 Days Later, that's not a tongue-in-cheek picture.

John Carpenter, director

One could make money and get a career going with a low-budget horror film about killers attacking on holidays. It is always flattering to have somebody copy you.

John Carpenter, director

What scares me is what scares you. We're all afraid of the same things. That's why horror is such a powerful genre. All you have to do is ask yourself what frightens you and you'll know what frightens me.

John Carpenter, director

At the time I came along, Hollywood's idea of teen movies meant there had to be a lot of nudity, usually involving boys in pursuit of sex, and pretty gross overall. Either that or a horror movie. And the last thing Hollywood wanted in their teen movies was teenagers!

Stephen King, author

It is dark. You cannot see. Only the hint of stars out the broken window. And a voice as old as the Snake from the Garden whispers, 'I will hold your hand.

John Wick,

Phnglui mglw nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah nagl fhtagn

H. P. Lovecraft, novelist

I think most people, even if they say they hate horror movies, there's that feeling you get inside that you love. I mean, I love it. I love to have the hairs on the back of my neck stand up or get that chill up my spine.

Barry Watson, actor

Being alone is scarier than any boogey man and the reason why I don't choose to see Horror movies as a rule.

Tom Sizemore, actor

The latest horror to hit the U.S. looks to have been caused by people of Middle Eastern origin, bearing Muslim names. Again, shame. This fuels more hatred for a religion and a people who have nothing to do with these events.

Cat Stevens, musician

I really believe that you could do horror very inexpensively. I don't think it has anything to do with the effects, the effects are not the most important parts.

I had to get used to wearing a mask and wearing a prosthetic and performing with those things while singing and expressing myself through stylized movement, while keeping it as human as possible so the audience could be closer to the horror of the Phantom.

Gerard Butler, actor

A win by an unsound combination, however showy, fills me with artistic horror.

Wilhelm Steinitz, celebrity

All of us have our individual curses, something that we are uncomfortable with and something that we have to deal with, like me making horror films, perhaps.

Wes Craven, director

Horror is beyond the reach of psychology.

Theodor Adorno, philosopher

Horror movies can be very interesting because they can deal with intangible subjects that are full of emotion.

Meg Tilly, actress

They wanted me to do Scream 2, and I hate talking about movies I turned down, because it sounds judgmental. There's nothing wrong with horror movies. I enjoy watching them. The main reason I turn a part down is if I think I won't be good.

Casey Affleck, actor

Like all tools, modern technology has produced some wonderful moments in music and also some horrors.

Hugh Hopper, musician

When I do a horror or a fantasy film it all boils down to something in the script that surprises me. It could be a big thing or a small moment. If it's there I'll do it.

Lance Henriksen, actor

The thing is there have been American movies that are similar to Solaris, like Alien had a lot of things that are similar, although it's also got the horror element.

Alex Winter, actor

I always go with the story and character and if those are good and if the setting is something that's scary (horror films seem to always take place at night and the weather's always bad) then I might be interested.

David Naughton, actor

The horror genre is important because it promotes experimentation in filmmaking.

Richard King, director

At the present moment, with little or no detail to hand, it is difficult for me to make any comment, beyond the expression of horror at the shameless haste with which the government appears to be pressing for our liquidation.

Ethel Rosenberg, criminal

This indication of audience interest is good for all horror movie makers at any budget level.

Curtis LeMay, soldier

I think that The Eye is a particularly Americanized take on horror.

Guillermo del Toro, director

In horror, character development is often pushed aside in favor of the shock value. The best genre movies to me are movies like The Shining. You had a connection to the characters in that film.

Joshua Leonard, actor

I see horror as part of legitimate film. I don't see it as an independent genre that has nothing to do with the rest of cinema.

Guillermo del Toro, director

This film is what it is. It's a campy thriller horror movie where you go and have fun. With these types of films, you can't take it too seriously. They are what they are.

Morris Chestnut, actor

War is the ultimate reality-based horror show.

David Hackworth, soldier

Although I've said a million times that I'm not a horror writer, I do like horror.

Dean Koontz, author

Even the contemporary horror authors who have seriously influenced me are a disparate bunch.

George Stephen, businessman

I'm a fan of short horror fiction... in fact, the most memorable horror I've read is of the short variety... but I have a hard time pulling it off myself.

On the other hand, now that I'm not dependent on fiction for my income, I've been writing more short stories despite the fact that there's no real paying market for short horror other than Cemetery Dance.

I've been reading horror since I was five years old.

George Stephen, businessman

We could hang around for ten years and nobody would care enough to identify us. Therein lies the horror.

Eddie Campbell, artist

There are a couple of things in there if we're constraining this discussion to horror here.

Eddie Campbell, artist

People who sleep around to get roles are frail and scared and most likely without talent. It's their own little horror show that only they can deal with.

Bruce Campbell, actor

The amount of horror one used to hear about in one village could be quite extreme. But one might not have heard about all the other villages' horrors at the same time.

Sharon Olds, poet

I don't like to talk about work in progress, but the novel I'm working on now is definitely not horror.

I think film had a terrible effect on horror fiction particularly in the 80s, with certain writers turning out stuff as slick and cliched as Hollywood movies.

Poppy Z. Brite, author

I think he had a strange, passionate devotion to the truth and a horror at what he saw going on.

Ben Bradlee, editor

So I was asked to do horror film after horror film, a series of about five, after that, and some of those were a little too gruesome. I wasn't too comfortable all the time in those. I didn't really care for them.

Fay Wray, actress

When we were making KONG, I went into the sound room and made an aria of horror sounds. I was in charge of it; there was no one there to listen to me. I was totally in charge of what I wanted to do.

Fay Wray, actress

Searchers after horror haunt strange, far places.

Anthony Holden, journalist

I began as a model, but that did not really hold my interest for too long! I believe I stood out from the parade of models trying to make it in Hollywood, which helped launch my career beyond the one-night-stand horror movie.

Natasha Henstridge, actress

Any horror element is as much psychological as special effects.

Christopher Eccleston, actor

I was always a fan of horror films as a kid.

Jeri Ryan, actress

Martha Beck, author

I wanted to get back to my style of 20 years ago after a long period of exploring horror and fantasy themes.

Dario Argento, director

I hate horror movies.

Melissa Auf der Maur, musician

When you hear in the tape recordings Nixon's own voice saying, We have to stonewall, We have to lie to the Grand Jury, We have to pay burglars a million dollars, it's all too clear the horror of what went on.

Bob Woodward, journalist

It's gotten to the point where it's big news when I don't do a horror film.

All these horror movies are slasher film now. I like them, they're fun, but they wink at the audience and you're really not terrified through the movie.

Gina Philips, actress

I think there is a feeling of old Hitchcock in there. There are parts that are tributes to some of the old great horror movies and the old great filmmakers.

Gina Philips, actress

I'm a horror movie fanatic.

Gina Philips, actress

Number one is that it just scares people! Your hair is standing up on your arms, or at least that there's a few moments when you're jumping. That's what makes it a good horror movie.

Gina Philips, actress

Alone is a much better film than House of the Dead and better than most horror movies out today.

Uwe Boll, director

I think Alone in the Dark was too much an action creature movie than a horror creature movie.

Mark Haddon, novelist

Trying to break into the horror market seemed natural.

George Stephen, businessman

Typically in horror films the character just services the plot, and you really are just going from 'point a' to 'point b,' just so that you can end up at 'point c.' They are just sort of stick characters. That's just not interesting to me.

Kevin Williamson, author

People can get obsessed with romance, they can get obsessed with political paranoia, they can get obsessed with horror. It's isn't the fault of the subject matter that creates the obsession, I don't think.

Adam Arkin, actor

I think in the case of horror, it's a chance to confront a lot of your worse fears and those fears usually have to do, ironically, with powerlessness and isolation.

Adam Arkin, actor

Well, don't tell Steve Niles but I just don't think horror works in comics.
