#Quote
1 My grandson is five years old and he knows who Frankenstein (1931) is. One day I will show him my bust of Jack P. Pierce and say, "You've seen what Grandad does and he made these monsters and that's why I make my monsters now."
2 Film is a truly magical medium. You can create illusions of reality, make people think they've seen things that they really haven't -- like blowing a guy's head off with a shotgun.
3 Everyone thinks Tom Savini doesn't like something unless there's blood and gore. That's stupid. My favorite movies are love stories.
4 I actually turned down Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981) to do The Burning (1981) because Jason was running around in "Part 2" and as you know, there is no Jason. Jason was a kid that died in the first movie. If you watch a "Friday the 13th" movie past "Part One", you're stupid. 'Cause there's no Jason. There shouldn't be a Jason.
5 [asked if his Vietnam experiences influence his makeup effects) I get asked that question a lot. I did see a lot of first-hand anatomically correct gore and I think the most important part of that was if we create a dead body or situation there's a certain feeling you get from seeing the real thing. If I'm creating a gory effect and I don't get the same feeling when I saw the real stuff, I'm not satisfied.
