Elijah Wood and Chris Hardwick Nerd Out About Horror at Nerdist Conival!

Apparently, when Nerdist overlord Chris Hardwick and nerd icon Elijah Wood get together, things get… well, nerdy! Wood swung by the Nerdist Conival stage to discuss his new horror comedy Cooties, where pre-pubescent kids are turned into savage, flesh-eating monsters. He also gave some tickets away to Thursday night’s Comic-Con screening of the flick and shared the inspiration behind his production company SpectreVision.

…But what started as a conversation about Wood’s love of genre quickly led to the duo geeking out about why horror films garner so much more respect overseas, the first horror movies they ever watched (Phantasm!!), practical effects, old school HBO, and how to get started as a filmmaker.

What was your first horror movie experience? Let us know in the comments below, and make sure you keep up with all the fun coming out of Comic-Con weekend by following #Conival!
