»I don’t get the torture porn films. They’re lacking metaphor.«

»I'm like my zombies. I won't stay dead!«

»The best horror films are the ones that are much less endowed.«

»My zombie films have been so far apart that I've been able to reflect the socio-political climates of the different decades. I have this conceit that they're a little bit of a chronicle, a cinematic diary of what's going on.«

»If one horror film hits, everyone says, "Let's go make a horror film!" It's the genre that never dies.«

»I'll never get sick of zombies. I just get sick of producers.«

»(On The Tales of Hoffman, his favourite movie) It was the filmmaking, the fantasy, the fact that it was a fantasy and it had a few frightening, sort of bizarre things in it. It was everything. It was really a movie for me, and it gave me an early appreciation for the power of visual media-the fact that you could experiment with it. He was doing all his tricks in-camera, and they were sort of obvious. That made me feel that, gee, maybe I could figure this medium out. It was transparent, but it worked.«
