We all look to have transcendent experiences that lift us out of the everyday,
and fear is a good one.

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

 

You're going through the horror of it,
you're going through the isolation of it but you're
being empowered by reminding yourself that you're connected to everybody else.
- Adam Arkin

To confront those fears, in a controlled environment,
where there's 300 people around you going through the same thing,
it's this weird sort of yin and yang.
- Adam Arkin

We just wanted it to be good for everybody.
- Adam Arkin

When people are treated well, and they're made to feel valued,
they give 110 percent.
- Adam Arkin

fan of any one genre of any kind of film.

The idea of it becomes a little freaky if you're dealing
with someone who has trouble differentiating between fantasy and reality,
but that's a concern no matter what kind of movie you're dealing with.
- Adam Arkin

The place was crawling with youngsters.
It was good, because the kids were good.

- Adam Arkin

I'm always honored, but I think for every 100 of those that come along,
one of them is actually going to happen.

People can get obsessed with romance,
they can get obsessed with political paranoia,
they can get obsessed with horror.
It's isn't the fault of the subject matter that creates the obsession,
I don't think.

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

I really would have been stupid not to have done it.
It was also a film that was actually happening,
I mean, Miramax was doing it, and it had a kind of legitimacy to it.
And once I read the script, I was there.
- Adam Arkin

It's a lot of work and I also feel like I've done it.
I miss comedy.
And I also think that, from purely a logistical standpoint,
that the day-to-day schedule on a comedy allows you to have a life,
much more of a life, than on a drama.
- Adam Arkin

I want to continue doing as big a variety of things as I can do,
and if that means I have the honor of getting to do more feature work,
I would love that.
I know that if I make any other long-term TV commitments,
it's not going to be on a drama.
- Adam Arkin

When one door closes, another opens.
But often we look so long, so regretfully,
upon the closed door,
that we fail to see the one that is opened for us.

And never, never, to forget.
