"We were at this sort of crossroads of the Aids era and I felt like things that Genet might have to say about what was happening in America was something I craved . . . So I stepped in and did my own interpretation and my own Americanization of ideas and perspectives that I gleaned from his work."
Todd Haynes, from a 2011 Sundance Q&A
"This transfer between cultures also occurs in relation to another European radical, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, whose work is specifically referenced in HORROR." Rob White, Film Quarterly '11
