Michael Bay Wants To Direct A Low Budget Horror Film

October 10, 2013

It appears that one day, controversial filmmaker Michael Bay may take a break from the $200 million, over-the-top, action flicks and work on a passion project.

In a special feature over at THR, which breaks down the “20 Masters of Horror”, Bay revealed that it’s a fantasy of his to one day direct a horror film.

I have a great fantasy — that I will probably make a reality — of directing my own self-financed horror movie,” he said.

Michael Bay has been producing smaller horror films through Platinum Dunes for over a decade now. Platinum Dunes has remade such films as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Friday The 13th, The Hitcher, The Amityville Horror, and A Nightmare on Elm St. Some of these remakes have been pretty hit or miss, but the guys over at Platinum Dunes seem to try harder than most companies.

Although I’m not the biggest fan of his work, I personally feel it’d be a good move for Michael Bay to direct a low budget horror film. Michael Bay doesn’t need to establish himself because he’s been making blockbusters for a long time now at big studios with big budgets, but I think he could silence some of his critics if he followed through on this idea. I’d like to see what he’s capable of working under the constraints of a smaller budget.
