Director Frank Darabont has dismissed horror movies such as HOSTEL and Saw as "degrading". Darabont has based three of his films, The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile and the upcoming THE MIST, on Stephen King novels but despises the brutality found in many contemporary horror movies. He tells MTV.com, "The torture-porn thing is pretty distasteful. I'm just not into it. "Horror unfortunately tends to go in these cycles where it puts itself back in this ghetto. "I just don't find anything amusing about people getting tortured. I wish we weren't making these movies. I think it degrades the culture. I think it diminishes the human spirit."
