10 artworks and 10 questions with Scott Watson
What’s your favourite scary movie?
My favourite scary movie is Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers (1995). It was the very first Halloween movie I watched and it still holds a special place in my heart.
What’s your favourite horror artwork you’ve created to date?
My favourite horror artwork that I have created is my Jason Goes to Hell piece. I was really proud of that one and I managed to get a print of it signed by the legendary Kane Hodder himself! It’s proudly framed on my kitchen wall.
Favourite horror movie sequel?
It would have to be I Still Know What you Did Last Summer (1998). it has a proper ’80s slasher feel to it.
Least favourite sequel?
Halloween Resurrection (2002), that movie is just plain awful!
What film do you think deserves a sequel that never got one?
My Bloody Valentine (1981)! Harry Warden deserves a franchise!
Favourite horror movie scene?
The scene in Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives (1986), where Jason kills Nikki and Cort in the camper van. Love the shot of Jason standing atop the overturned burning van, it’s iconic!
Favourite chase scene?
When Michael is chasing Tommy and Kara through Smiths Grove Sanitarium in Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers (1995).
Cheesiest kill scene?
That has got to be ‘Garbage Day’ from Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2 (1987), never fails to make me laugh!
What horror film do you think is overrated?
The most overrated horror film in my opinion, (and I’ll get some hate for this), is the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974). I first watched it when I was a teenager and it didn’t scare me at all! Give me the 2003 remake any day.
What horror film do you think is underrated?
I think that would be Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982). Some people give it a lot of hate because Michael Myers doesn’t appear in it, but it is a really solid entertaining horror movie and one of the best in the Halloween franchise, IMO.
