Adolescents are not monsters. They are just people trying to learn how to make it among the adults in the world who are probably not so sure themselves.

Country music in the mid-'90s was a big influence on my career and I played all the songs that are referenced in ''94' back in my club days. Joe Diffie was rocking a sick mullet and he was hotter than ever... just putting out monster hit after monster hit. It totally takes me back to those days and it makes me smile every time I hear it.

No 'F/X 2' was a job. I enjoyed doing it but that was definitely a job.

I like something where I can really use my imagination and be an active participant in the construction of the monster and usually that's in the world of the supernatural or the world of the fantastic so that's why those kinds of stories about demons and the supernatural appeal to me or maybe I'm really interested in that subject.
To me it's far more efficient to mobilize the imagination. It's far more efficient to hear a creaking step for example than to see the face of a monster which usually looks ridiculous and where you know that the blood is ketchup.
If you read about Mussolini or Stalin or some of these other great monsters of history they were at it all the time that they were getting up in the morning very early. They were physically very active. They didn't eat lunch.
