Jason Blum — one of Hollywood’s most prolific and profitable producers (Paranormal Activity, Insidious, Sinister, The Purge, The Bay, and Oculus) — participated in an interesting interview at SXSW Film 2014 about his model of producing high-quality low-budget horror films for wide release. The video is almost an hour long, but worth watching if you’re interested in contemporary mainstream horror. [MetaFilter]

I spent about 15 years trying to figure out what the right thing for me to do in the movie business was. I’m 43 years old, so in my 20s I worked for Bob and Harvey (Weinstein) as an executive, and then I was an independent producer for Warner Brothers for a while. I tried big and small and horror and drama and everything else. Looking back what happened with Paranormal Activity was a perfect storm for me in that it was a movie produced totally independently, but distributed by a major studio. I’ve always loved scary movies. I majored in film at college. I took a seminar on Hitchcock and watched every one of his movies. I’ve always been drawn to the genre, but when I figured out a business model where I could make movies on my own and have studios release them, that’s when I discovered the most fun professional period in my life and that’s how Blumhouse was born. —Jason Blum

We first of all make horror movies, which people turn their noses up at. Second of all we make cheap movies, and Hollywood’s a lot about ego and money and, “My movie cost $200m!”, you know? And more, more, more. So I’m not surprised that more people don’t do it. Our offices are in Korea Town — a part of town where no one else is. And we kind of do our own thing. I think those are factors. Anyone who has any kind of success in Hollywood wants to make more expensive movies, and spend more money, be bigger. I think it’s unusual to have success and want to stay small. I was lucky enough to have made a tonne of mistakes and be kind of frustrated. I was working in the movies for 15 years before I did Paranormal Activity, so I was lucky enough to have that experience. So instead of trying to make, like, Godzilla after Paranormal Activity, I said, “Let’s keep making inexpensive movies.” —Jason Blum interview

David Ortiz from the Boston Red Sox hit 2 home runs yesterday to push his career total to 453 home runs. More importantly those 2 hits brought his career HIT total to 2112. Awesome. Shout out to Rush fan Mike Olson for the tip.

Honestly, that’s far cooler than passing Yaz on the all-time HR list.

Life Story.
Also, when “The Morningside Monster” comes out on VOD in October, and all of my wonderful followers (and michael2h's equally wonderful followers) rent it, please note that here are the drinking games rules:
1) Drink whenever someone says “fuck.”
That’s all it’s gonna take, I promise.
