Rob Zombie Quotes
"By the time we got to MGM, and Lions Gate the movie was done there was nothing else to say. It was done. Just as at Universal, it was art by committee." "Every test screening would cost them like 100 grand. And I'm like can't we use the 100 grand in the movie? You know?" "Everything is so much work that you have to be excited to want to put in all the hours with virtually no payback, sometimes." "Hell, as kids, critics didn't even matter. I don't even know if I knew they existed." "I am like the Jack Nicholson of the Kings - every single game. If there was a game tonight I wouldn't be here. I used to play hockey. That was my original thing. My first thing, I wanted to play professional hockey." "I don't really have any fears or phobias that are in this movie. Most of it comes really from my childhood, cause one of the businesses that my family was in was like carnivals and my grand parents too. They were all carnies and I sort of grew up in that world so it's like more where that all came from." "I like 1977 because it is more primitive. If it were modern day, like one Universal guy was like wouldn't they just use their cell phone? I guess he did not read that it was 1977 in the script." "I remember when a local guy on TV reviewed Phantasm and he said it was the worst movie he had ever seen and it was a piece of crap. They were showing scenes of it and I thought it looked badass and I went and saw it. It was great." "I remember, especially like when I was in high school, going to see like Dawn of the Dead and it was like mayhem in the theater and you could barely even watch the movie. It was so fun." "I think it is good escapist entertainment even though it's bad." "I understand why some kid in his bedroom in Wisconsin thinks downloading songs couldn't hurt anyone. True fans will buy the CD or go see the movie after downloading, but to say it doesn't affect anyone - come on." "I wanted it to be like a high quality, drive-in movie." "It was like fighting with the MPAA... to me it was like this is an R easy... but it was NC 17 over and over and even with this cut they were like, you are right on the edge buddy, one more thing and it's NC-17." "It'd be like what would happen if Hollywood took over porno: 'If we keep their clothes on and they didn't have sex, we'd be able to sell it to a lot more people'." "It's lifestyle music. It's not like some secretary who likes some pop song, but can't name who the band is; whereas a heavy metal fan is into every aspect of it. We'll see if rap holds up to that. Run-DMC seemed to be the Led Zeppelin of rap." "It's never been about making money." "NC-17 means that you get it in like 3 theaters. They won't run the spots on MTV, won't run the advertising. It's the kiss of death so there was really no other choice." "None of it is ever business." "Probably the biggest thing that surprises people is that I am obsessed with hockey. I grew up in the Boston area so I am obsessed with hockey since I was a little kid." "The hardest part was convincing people that I was serious. The people were like 'you want to do this again'?" "The pirating thing is bad. The people it hurts the most are the ones you least think it hurts. It's not the big Britney Spears albums that are being pirated; it's the indie bands that don't have two cents to their name." "Things like that become a blur - shot at some soundstage, somewhere - that's as much as I can remember." "Those days if you drove cross country and you broke down on the side of the road, and the sign says 200 miles to the next gas station, you knew you were so screwed." "We had 25 days to shoot the film and no money and they wanted me to shoot every scene two ways. So essentially they wanted me to film two movies at the same time. I'd film the bloody one... then they would say, why don't you film the non-bloody one. I didn't have time to film the bloody one!" "White Zombie was a bunch of kids with the worst equipment playing in a basement. But that is what is so great about it. There is no reason to think that you can't do it." "You know... the only person I really had to please after a point was the MPAA. Because Lions' Gate was like, hey, whatever you can get away with is fine, we don't care." "You might like it as a joke or because you liked it then, but there isn't a whole new generation discovering Wham!."
