"For me, the measure of a good interview is, does it get you thinking and talking about things you don't usually consider. Do they illuminate good, meaningful corners of your life and work. This one did exactly that. I'd do it again in a minute."
Best Selling Horror Writer "The Girl Next Door, Offspring, The Woman & I'm Not Sam"
"While preparation is a function of professionalism, enthusiasm is innate. Rarely have I been interviewed by something with such a respect, passion and dare I say, curiosity, for the horror genre, as Jay Kay."

"Jay K is an awesome interviewer, apart from knowing his shit, he has something that's too often lacking these days- intelligence. Jay K is thoughtful and considered when regarding the social context of a film and his understanding of filmmaking and tropes is without equal. He's a joy to listen to an for the lucky few a pleasure to talk to. Rock on Horror Happens!"

"I had the pleasure of being interviewed for Jay Kay's show, alongside some of the Cruel Summer team, and it really was an enjoyable experience from beginning to end. Not only did he make us feel at ease on the build up to the interview but also knew exactly how to make us feel at ease during too. Interviews can be extremely daunting but Jay Kay shared such an enthusiasm for our project that he was able to ask us some really interesting, detailed and original questions - there was literally never a dull moment. If you get a chance to be on his show, do, you won't regret it!"
"I enjoyed being a guest on The Horror Happens Radio Show because of the insightful questions and lively, in depth conversation that followed. Too many interviews are fluff and/or going over the same territory again again. This was a refreshingly deep and meaningful conversation on things I hold dear to my heart. Thanks!"
"We couldn't do what we do without shows like the HHRS. Simply put... thank you for helping us make movies and get them out to the world."

Look forward to doing it again, and thank you for making it such a pleasure. Fun to talk to somebody smart and really interested."
Legendary Filmmaker "Fright Night, Child's Play & Masters of Horror"
Jay Kay of The Horror Happens Radio Show has one of the most exhaustive collections of in-depth interviews with artists, filmmakers, producers, actors, distributors, programmers and anyone related to the horror film genre. I had the privilege to be interviewed by him twice and I was very impressed by the level of research and thorough analysis that he had done for my work. It was such a pleasure to answer his questions and go more in-depth during the conversation. Jay Kay's work is instrumental: he is building a legacy, an encyclopedia and contributing immensely to the horror community with all the archives on his site. Some of these interviews will be historical in the future!
