Horror Star Bill Moseley Recounts How He Fell in Love With Fear [INTERVIEW]
Bill Moseley has acted in over 100 horror films and counting including "Night of the Living Dead," "Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2," "Army of Darkness," "House of 1000 Corpses," "The Devil's Rejects," "Grindhouse," the "Halloween" remake and more! He's a graduate of Yale University and worked for a time as a journalist before acting. Find out why he chose the horror genre!
We asked Bill if Halloween is his favorite time of year. He said yes, but for totally unexpected reasons! Coming from the Mid West, he said he loves the Indian Summers, harvest season and his birthday in November. So how did a Yale boy who likes to watch the leaves change colors become America's veteran horror actor?
Well, his due date was Halloween for starters!
Seriously though, Moseley said his dad LOVED to scare him and his brothers. For example, he'd drive them out to a grave yard at night and then sneak away!
One time he took the kids to an abandoned barn and had a friend hide in the hay loft with a sack over his head, then jump out and scare him and throw bags of rat poison down at them!
"I love being in these scary movies and trying to scare the hell out of people," he said.
While working with Rob Zombie on "The Devil's Rejects" they found out Universal Studios Theme Park had opened a "House of 1000 Corpses" maze for Halloween. He and Rob put movie masks on and snuck into the maze to randomly grab people!
Right now Moseley is promoting his new film out next year called, "Charlie's Farm" -- Australia's answer to Michael Myers. He plays Charlie's dad.
