In the 80's, I just knew the people I was working with on a film set. I didn't know a director unless I was working with him, but know I've met these young directors at film festivals and karaoke in LA and bowling parties. It just seems that there is a whole community now, and they're so supportive of one another and so collaborative. Hide

I'm enjoying my time now working in it more than I did in the 80's! I felt like I was just doing my little acting job, coming and doing it, and then we'd get a review by Roger Ebert or Pauline Kael and that was it. Now I met all the reviewers at the film festivals! It's just much more of an exciting, artistic community that is really collaborative, so I think it's really exciting now. I'm just jazzed to be back and hanging out with all of these young people.

A lot of horror movies appeal to men and they're written by men, so it's kind of what men want to see. They're written from the male point of view. I think in life we have this issue and in films we have the issue where the women are not as often in control. Men are more in control and art imitates life, so we see that more and more in the movies. It's probably representative of where women are right now and where they're going. Hide

And seemingly almost anybody can make a movie now. It's not this mysterious, magical process anymore. Anybody can learn how to do it and put some players and a script together and get some bodies to work on a movie, but to do it well, of course, is a different story. But also, when I was younger, the movies I did had the distribution built in, and we didn't have to worry about selling a movie. Hide

You know, the word of mouth about all of these other movies that are in production is so visible now with the aid of social media and Twitter and Facebook. Hide
