Sam wants to scare you again.
It would appear that Mr. Raimi is currently writing a new horror flick with his brother. This is a very good thing. With the Raimi/Ghosthouse Pictures produced The Possession coming to theaters on the 31st it seems he misses the horror crowd.
“I’m thrilled to be able to make bigger budget pictures… but I’m really excited about making another horror movie. I’m writing one with my brother right now and I’m really looking forward to it. I love that crowd… It’s great when you can do something they like, there’s nothing as rewarding as that. Being in the audience when a bunch of horror fans really seem like the movie is so much fun. It’s the greatest high in the world.”
Go back to your roots Sam. Do it for us, do it for the fans.
When asked about horror fans, Sam said:
“They’re very savvy to film technique. The horror audience is the most original audience out there. They don’t want sequels, they don’t want what most of the audience wants. Most of the time audiences want to see versions of what they’ve seen before. Horror audiences are like, ‘no. Show me something I’ve never seen before! I want to be freaked out!’ My hat’s off to them. They’re a really original audience. Even more than the art film crowd they’re the ones who break new ground and accept new techniques from filmmakers on the cutting edge. Not the indie guys, but those guys. The low-budget horror fans.”
