Interview with Chester Moore - September 2004
1. Oh My Gore : "Which is your favourite movie and why ?"
Favorite horror movie is "HALLOWEEN". I think it has one of the strongest yet simple story lines, was brilliantly acted and directed. On top of that the musical score was incredible. Plus, it scared the hell out of me.
2. Oh My Gore : "Which is the movie that you disliked the most and why ?"
Horror movie I disliked? "A VIRGIN AMONG THE LIVING DEAD". When we were like 13, my buddy Patrick and I rented it because it had a half naked chick on the cover and zombies. So we thought "this is gonna be good". We got halfway through it and it was truly, truly terrible. So we hooked up our two vcrs and dubbed over me and him in a hockey mask and werewolf mask standing in front of the tv saying "In case you havent noticed, this movie really sucks". I wonder how many people rented that and were like "what the hell"? But I bet they all agreed.
3. Oh My Gore : "Who is your favourite director and why ?"
My favorite producer is Moustaphha Akkad for keeping the Halloween franchise alive. The movies are hit and miss but as long as we can keep getting something as strong as H20 every few years I'm happy. Director-wise I have a hard time narrowing down one. I'd probably have to overall go with Wes Craven because he taps into such a dark area with some of his movies ranging from "THE HILLS HAVE EYES" to "THE SERPENT AND THE RAINBOW". Plus "NEW NIGHTMARE" was way ahead of its time.
4. Oh My Gore : "Who is your favourite actor and why ?
My favorite horror actor would have to be Vincent Price. I mean this guy was in so many awesome movies and always delivered the goods. To me, he is the all-time horror icon.
5. Oh My Gore : "Which scene scared you the most ?"
In the horror world, probably the scene in "HALLOWEEN" where Dr. Loomis shoots Michael, he falls out the window and Laurie asks "Was it the Boogey Man?". Loomis says "As a matter of fact, it was." Then Loomis discovers Michael got away after having six bullets hit him. That as a young kid said to me "You can't kill evil" and struck a real chord. Otherwise, the scene in "STAR WARS" where Vader force chokes Admiral Motti and says "I find your lack of faith disturbing". I get chills just thinking about it.
6. Oh My Gore : "Which band, according to you, symbolizes horror the best ?"
A band that symbolizes horror the best. Well, the best interpretion of horror from a pure musical standpoint to me was Iced Earth's "Horror Show". But as far as the whole package goes, moder day the Murderdolls and of course all-time Alice Cooper.
7. Oh My Gore : "Which original Soundtrack do you like the most ?
My favorite movie soundtrack would be "HALLOWEEN". Brilliant.
8. Oh My Gore : "Which movie poster do you like the most ?
There are so many great movie posters out there. I'd have to go with the original and FAR superior "TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE". "Who will survive and what will be left of them" along with a picture of Leatherface and a girl on a hook. That's hard to beat.
9. Oh My Gore : "Freddy or Jason ?"
Jason all the way! Freddy's great but I'm more loyal to Jason.
10. Oh My Gore : "What do you think about Oh My Gore ! ?"
Ohmygore is a great site with a great name! Keep up the good work.
