By Dr. FEAR:
I read an article on Fangoria the other day that states that the current horror directors that are considered “Masters” of their craft are not living up to their expectations to horror fans saying they have not been consistent in delivering classic horror films. One would tend to agree as Capenter, Argento, Craven, and more have not delivered a “great’ or classic horror film in years.
To the author of the article I say, research before you speak. Yes, it’s true the horror masters of today are not delivering consistent classic horror films for fans to slobber over. Don’t blame the filmmakers, blame the system. Filmmaking is a business as film directors are talent for hire and never have “total” control over a movie production. Their vision is always compromised at the expense of greedy finance or investors that are trying to make a profit from the production and don’t care about a directors vision.
We will never be able to to have filmmakers make their “total” vision of a film because their are so many factors that come with a studio or even an independent horror film production. Sometimes even the best director will take a “crappy” project because their is no other project available and they need to pay their bills just like every Tom, Dick, or Harry that takes a job they hate just because they need the money.
Don’t fault the filmmakers, fault the system. Filmmaking is not seen as an art form and studio brass and finance people don’t care about the story a filmmaker wants to tell, it’s all about the money. If a filmmaker can make just 2 or 3 classic movies in their career, I would consider them a Master. It’s hard to make a movie, even harder to make a movie that’s a classic. Cut them some slack and enjoy the potential of maybe one day that filmmaker will make that classic that horror fans want.
