Swedish singer, musician and Ghost frontman Tobias Forge made a new interview with Fear Fest Evil and talked about classic horror and sci-fi art with Metallica legend, Kirk Hammett.
Tobias also named the favorite movie of his all time and praised Jack Nicholson’s iconic movie, The Shining.
Here is what he said:
“Fast forward to the ‘80s, and especially in the ‘90s and the 2000s. I think a lot of contemporary filmmakers who grew up in the VHS digital violence era, such as myself, caused the genre in its totality to maybe suffer from being too much of a homage.
All the time there’s weird, eclectic little references, and then you sort of outsmart yourself and the whole project by just making it too true to the genre in a way.
Whereas I think a lot of the groundbreaking films were made by people who didn’t necessarily do a whole lot of horror films, but were filmmakers in general. Stanley Kubrick is the classic example of that with The Shining.”
