I sort of forgot about 'Z Channel' after it went off the air in 1989, but once Jason Resnick of Focus Features made the suggestion, I became obsessed all over again. I still am. I'll probably be this way until I'm 80, babbling about 'Z Channel.'
I just want to make something that is true to itself and that interests me; otherwise, how can I have the audacity to think it's going to interest anybody else?
I think vampires would want to find a way to stay attached to the living, the way human beings do, and that is through love, interrelations and meaning.
I don't know about relationships. Maybe I'm supposed to travel and make films and meet people and have adventures instead.
I've noticed that when people make vampire movies, they're always determining which of the rules they're going to stick to and which they'll abandon.
