Interview: Splinter and Grudge 3 director Toby Wilkins
'My sensibilities tend to be on the darker side,' says director Toby Wilkins. That sounds like an understatement considering that his feature directorial debut, Splinter, has a very memorable scene in which a severed hand comes to life. Yet Wilkins is not about gore for gore's sake. 'For me, the focus is on characters and situations, not just the whiz-bang,' he says.
