I think so much of the horror film is about our primal instincts, and our primal instincts are not just towards violence. It's also towards sex.

When I first envisioned 'Funny Games' in the mid-1990s, it was my intention to have an American audience watch the movie. It is a reaction to a certain American cinema, its violence, its naivety, the way American cinema toys with human beings. In many American films, violence is made consumable.
