Michael Odonoghue quotes
A Madagascar Hissing Roach chasing Jerry Lewis. That would be a really neat treat.

Michael Odonoghue
Anyway, the title The War of the Insect Gods came before we had that ending, before we knew they had become gods. That we knew the evolutionary cycle they went through. Before we even knew anything about that. We had an ending.

Michael Odonoghue
Insects are my secret fear. That's what terrifies me more than anything - insects.

Michael Odonoghue
It began as this desire to do this science fiction movie about perhaps one of the last insects left that nobody's done anything on, which is the cockroach - and truly one of the most frightening insects.

Michael Odonoghue
It's an end of the world I guess. I guess you'd currently call it disaster movie. But really they weren't disaster movies. They were more end of the world movies. This is more an end of the world movie.

Michael Odonoghue
It's very easy to make insects move. Because they do move mechanically without the rippling of flesh as you mentioned. They move more like real tinker toys and you can make models of them quite easily.

Michael Odonoghue
Television doesn't want to admit it has those dreadful roach ads on anyway.

Michael Odonoghue
The movies of the 50s that dealt with this sort of thing were more end of the world movies. Where Poseidon Adventure was definitely a disaster movie. End of the world was an earlier genre.

Michael Odonoghue
The transformation scene, where man is becoming insect and insect has become at least man and beyond that - a flying, godlike, shimmering, diaphanous, beautiful creature.

Michael Odonoghue
They just have a feel about them. And you feel your way through them and you come out with something that's very powerful and mythic. And you don't quite know how you got there. I think this story has a lot of those elements.

Michael Odonoghue
We're using the science fiction cliches of the 1950s to set the mind off in a certain direction, then sabotage it with a surprise.

Michael Odonoghue
Well, in order for the end to come off with the giant scene of insects on Park Avenue - that would be a large complex special effect. It's funny even at a cost of a couple million dollars, this script is almost written with the camera facing the other way when the disaster happens.

Michael Odonoghue
Working with Woody Allen is like filming Howard Hughes's will. It's a very mysterious and strange event. You never get a peek at the whole will.
