Quentin Tarantino On Making Serial Killer Film: People Wouldn’t Be Able To Handle ItAcclaimed Hollywood director Quentin Tarantino has thought of making a serial killer film but has stopped himself mainly because he says that people would not be able to handle a serial killer film made by him.
The director also said that any serial killer film he makes will divulge too much of his sickness.
Tarantino, who has won two Oscars for best original screenplay (Pulp Fiction and Django Unchained), said that if he makes a serial killer film, it would “reveal my sickness far too much”.
“The planet Earth couldn't handle my serial killer movie,” he said.
The comments were made by Tarantino as he surprised people by making an appearance at the 18th Busan International Film Festival in South Korea. This was the first time he has appeared in the festival.
During an Open Talk session with Korean director Bong Joon-ho, Tarantino also discussed other topics.
One was about why he has tackled so many genres in his career.
“When I make a film I am hoping to reinvent the genre a little bit. I just do it my way. I make my own little Quentin versions of them. I consider myself a student of cinema. It's almost like I am going for my professorship in cinema and the day I die is the day I graduate. It is a lifelong study,” he said.
Tarantino also had praises for Bong who made the film “Snowpiercer” which racked up $60 million in South Korea and is slated to be released around the world. “Snowpiercer” is a English-language film based on the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige that tackles the story of an Ice Age-like era on Earth as a result of a botched global warming suppression experiment.
"Bong has that thing that the 1970s's [Steven] Spielberg had in that he can do many different types of stories but there is always this level of comedy and entertainment that is there,” Tarantino said.
