If you’re looking for an expert on the world of horror, you won’t find much better than Alfred Hitchcock. While this interview is over 40 years old, it seems not a lot of Horror directors today have heard it. In the interview, Hitchcock says that audiences love “toe in the water,” fear with a resolve. He mentions people’s love of roller coasters and how we love to scare ourselves riding them while simultaneously blocking out that a slight malfunction could mean our instantaneous deaths. He also references one of his past films where he learned the hard way what happens when you introduce fear with resolve, and how it was a mistake in his filmmaking. Fascinating stuff to hear from a legend in the genre.
