“My wish list for this show came true, I knew these three, and all are incredible storytellers. Mick Garris got the horror directors together for dinners, called the Masters of Horror. As we were losing these guys, we were losing their stories. And I wanted to get these people together, but I also wanted a mix of a lot of different voices. I also want to hear their perspectives of other movies. The fun was Joe Dante talking about other people’s movies.”
