Actors are such an insecure breed.
Being behind a camera, in front of the camera, is my own little deconstructionist niche.
I'm less interested in slasher, and go more for roles that can affect you on a personal level. I'm interested in human empathy in the movies I see, and in the ones I am a part of.
I'm really proud of Blair Witch Project as a film, but as far as the cultural phenomenon of it - that was just weird luck.
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.
Mike and Heather and I rapped once or twice in New York and then we all wound up on a train together on the way out to Maryland. I think it was about a month and a half from the time we got cast until the time we shot the thing.
Pain is pain, joy is joy - you can't avoid bringing pieces of yourself into a role.
We hit a stride where all self-consciousness disappeared.
