Halloween Series: Interview with the fisherman

This is another in my Sunday interviews with horror movie killers. This time, the fisherman in "I Know What You Did Last Summer."

AUTUMN: I must admit that I found your method of tormenting the teens to be most effective. A simple note and you had them in a panic. Why didn’t you just kill them off without warning?

FISHERMAN: Well, you see, that wouldn’t have been half so much fun as watchin’ `em squirm like fish out of water.

AUTUMN: Every killer has one special kill that was their favorite. Which one was yours?

FISHERMAN: Well, the jock was too easy to kill. I did him fast to just get it out of the way. The blonde, she was the most fun. I liked killing her because first I cut off her pretty hair and then I chased her down. She thought she’d make it safe and clear and I got her. I loved to see her scared and screaming. It gave me such satisfaction. She really was a stupid broad.

AUTUMN: But, you didn’t manage to kill the last two, hmm?

FISHERMAN: (clenches the arms of the chair and growls) I shoulda done like I did with the other couple; kill off the man protector first. Stupid, stupid, stupid! I was just so focused on killing that pretty brunette. It was most distracting having her on my boat. I don’t usually take women on my boat. Like right now, having you here... (leans forward)

AUTUMN: (scoots her chair back) Did you have a killing method in mind for her?

FISHERMAN: (nods quickly). Well, I’d want to gut `er like a fish, ya know? I’d take and peel her spine out and toss her head out with it and then peel back her skin and….

AUTUMN: (vomits into the trash can)

FISHERMAN: (laughs) Want me to demonstrate, do ya? (stands up)

AUTUMN: (rushes to the stern of the boat and jumps onto the dock, running away as he waves his hook hand at her)

**Julie and I are hitting the road today for Tucson and then up towards Florence. We're going to hang out with a friend and hit a bunch of abandoned places for our book. Expect crazy videos from me, photos from Julie at Above-the-Norm and an eventual giveaway of crazy Arizona gift shop goodies. Oh, and don't forget to enter the giveaway--today's the last day.**


  1. Ok, I'm not reading this one because I haven't seen the movie! I know, I know....how very un-spooky girl of me! Hey, I went through a period of movie rebellion and refused to watch movies at all! Long story...needless to say I have a LOT of catching up to do! LOL

    word veri: phtsk

    I think this translates to Phhhhh! tsk, tsk, tsk!

  2. Ick.. I don't even want to gut a fish let alone gut a person like a fish. That image made me squirm

  3. Yeah, the fisherman was a seriously troubled type. Oh, and Tara, I give you double thumbs up for going outdoors in your kitty costume to be photographed. We are so alike. I'm hoping to play a little prank involving Dale on someone today. Putting him in the trunk and having the person get something out of the trunk for me. Hope it works. It usually does. There's nothing to freak you out like having that face staring up at you with its fake innocense. I haven't told Dale yet that this means he's riding in the trunk for the whole car trip. He was hoping he'd ride on Julie's lap....

  4. You normally hear that fishing is a relaxing time.

  5. This is a great idea. I can't wait to see what other Halloween surprised you have in store. Stop by my blog for some October goodness too. :-)
