Halloween Podcast with Horror Director Darren Lynn Bousman

During our special Halloween podcast interview with horror film director Darren Lynn Bousman ("Saw II, III and IV," "Repo! The Genetic Opera") talks about why he turned down “Saw V” to direct “Repo!”; how he picked the cast; what happens when you put Paris Hilton in the same room with Ogre, a guy who simulates eviscerating himself onstage every night; what caused the actors to burst out in tears on set; and the headbanging soundtrack of "Repo," which was performed by members of Korn, Filter, Slipknot and others.

Bousman also discusses how he got into horror, how a script he wrote earned him the “Saw II” gig, the value of plot over splatter, how far is too far when it comes to graphic violence, true crime exploitation movies like “Faces of Death” and “Traces of Death,” why his “Saw” party was raided by a SWAT team and the influence of directors like Takashi Miike, Ruggero Deodato and Dario Argento.
