I think in the case of horror, it's a chance to confront
a lot of your worse fears and those fears usually have to do,
ironically, with powerlessness and isolation.

- Adam Arkin

I want to continue doing as big a variety of things as I can do,

The comparisons to "ER" were maddening and there was
this assumption that the two of us were looking at
each other with rage and resentment,
which was also not the case.
- Adam Arkin

The place was crawling with youngsters.
It was good, because the kids were good.
I can't make a general assumption.
Again, you're probably getting, as a general theme from me,
that I don't make a lot of broad, sweeping rules about movies.
- Adam Arkin

they can get obsessed with political paranoia,
they can get obsessed with horror.
