Why don't you just tell me the name of the movie?
I think it was an amalgamation of a lot of movies and TV shows that I watched when I was growing up. So I was a lot like Norman who sits at home watching horror movies he shouldn’t be watching. There were a lot of horror movies, a lot of those ’80s movies like “The Goonies” and Amblin movies, “Ghostbusters”, “Poltergeist” and “Scooby Doo.” I think those were just churning away in my mind through adolescence, and then it got to the point where I was like, I want to make a movie about this. But I guess the original idea was a zombie movie for kids, ‘cause I thought “Why not?”
