Yeah, great stuff. I can tell why you like having him on since he seems like such an easy guy to interview.

I generally love anyone that talks about their own writing methods, so I could have listened to that for hours. I also get a kick out of the way he says "horror".

As for plot holes that ruined good horror movies, I can only think of one on the top of my head.

The big twist in High Tension killed most of its credibility for me. Way too many implausible scenarios that you're expected to forgive in the name of the character's dementia. It was like they filmed the whole movie not knowing what the twist was going to be, then decided on it at the very end.
