Quentin Tarantino’s time as a director will soon be coming to an end and for his final film, the iconic director has expressed interest in doing a horror film.
Since the release of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Quentin Tarantino has been talking about what could be his final film. At one point he said that if he did in fact do a Star Trek film that would be his final picture. He recently said that whatever his final film was, that it would be like an epilogue to all his other films. Most recently, however, Quentin Tarantino stated that he was interested in doing a horror movie as his final film.
While speaking to reporters during a Once Upon a Time in Hollywood press tour, Quentin Tarantino discussed the possibility of doing a horror movie. He expressed a love for horror films and loved the idea of doing one:
“If I come up with a terrific horror film story, I will do that as my tenth movie. I love horror movies. I would love to do a horror film.”
Quentin Tarantino later stated that the closest that he had ever come to directing a straight-up horror film was the Spahn Ranch sequence in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood which, as he put it, turned out far better than he ever expected:
“I do actually think that the Spahn Ranch sequence is the closest to a horror sequence. I do think it’s vaguely terrifying. And I didn’t quite realize how good we did it, frankly, until my editor told me. He goes, ‘The Spahn Ranch sequence is a horror film…it’s ‘The Texas Chain Saw Massacre’ with a budget.'”
