Single Question Interview: David Anderson

Gore horror or slight, with a hint of blood?

Slight. The imagination makes it so much more gruesome than could ever be shown on screen. Plus, it involved the viewer more.

My mom instilled in me a firm love of Alfred Hitchcock and he used the implied violence better than probably anyone. Though I’m not afraid to get into the gory details with my writing, leaving things to the reader is a great way to suck them into the story. They then become more than just an observer. They become part of the action, horror, or suspense.

Plus, gore for gore’s sake is just lazy storytelling. Why make it simple when it can be beautiful? Find ways to make the disgusting amazing, the horrible intriguing, and the revolting irresistible. Make is all beautiful chaos.
