Pandemic, election brew an extra-spooky Halloween
Croton-on-Hudson is a quaint village an hour north of New York City that has thrived thanks to a spooky tale written some 200 years ago. The town is still holding its annual Halloween bash this year -- with the US election and the coronavirus pandemic lending an extra dose of chills. The October 31 holiday is an industry of its own in this picturesque corner of the Hudson River Valley. Tens of thousands of tourists from all over the world venture there seeking the spirit of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," an 1820 story by Washington Irving about a headless horseman who haunts a superstitious schoolteacher. © TIMOTHY A.
He told Forbes.com: "I always look at horror as dramas with scary elements, as opposed to those executives who don't like horror, they look at it as killing people with some story stuck between the kills. That's why so much of horror is bad.
"You've got to look at it the other way. Does the movie work as a drama if you took out the violence or took out the genre elements? It's a litmus test, and we put most of our movies through that."
Blum continued: "If you look at most of our movies, they will work without the violence. Many horror movies won't, and they tend to be not so good.
"The key to a great horror movie is the same as the key to any movie or show, and that is storytelling, not how you cut someone's head off. The emphasis for us is storytelling as opposed to action sequences."
