“We’re Looking for People Who Think Weirder and Bloodier”: Eli Roth and Crypt TV Execs on Making Horror Short

filmmaker magazine | May 2, 2017

Raise your hand if you’re trying to get a horror film made. I thought so. That’s a lot of us — myself included. It’s been a fantastic year for the genre, too, with Get Out breaking a number of records and becoming the third highest-grossing R-rated horror film of all time — and that’s behind The Exorcist and Hannibal. I was too terrified to finish either, and I saw Get Outtwice (and alone) so it wins in my book. Female horror filmmakers are kicking ass, too. I loved this Rolling Stone article almost as much as I loved Raw.
