Personal Quote:

I've always had the desire to show people things they have never seen before, which is difficult, because Hollywood prefers things which are like something else.

Trivia:

In the mid-90s his adaptation of Robert E. Howard's "Solomon Kane" was optioned by Edward R. Pressman who wanted to set it up with Daniel Day-Lewis in the lead role. The whole thing was killed off by the "Moreau" affair. See more »

Trademark:

Typical elements of his movies are extreme violence, occultism, oneiricism and visionariness. See more »
