Tarantino’s 10th And Final Film Might Be A Horror Film

Published on August 25, 2019


Academy Award-winning director Quentin Tarantino is in the last stretch of his career after stunning success with his latest film Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. Tarantino’s name has become synonymous with bloodshed and dark humor, but for his tenth and final film he is considering taking it a step forward into the full-blown horror genre. Here’s what the director has to say about the direction of his next movie after Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. 

What Will The Last Tarantino Movie Actually Be?

Tarantino has been adamant for some time about finishing his directing career after 10 movies. In an interview with GQ Australia, he stated, “I see myself writing film books and starting to write theater, so I’ll still be creative. I just think I’ve given all I have to give to movies.” He reiterated this decision to fans just before the release and press tour for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, leading to even more hype surrounding the summer 2019 drama film. As for the tenth and final film, several rumors have spread about the potential for an R-rated Star Trek rendition or even a third Kill Bill movie. However, lately Tarantino seems to have an interest in another idea entirely: horror. During his latest press tour, Tarantino told fans, “If I come up with a terrific horror film story, I will do that as my tenth movie. I love horror movies. I would love to do a horror film.” Since all of his films already contain plenty of graphic scenes, it would be a natural progression to end his career in the genre that thrives in guts and gore.

Will Tarantino Stick To His 10-Movie Retirement Plan?

Tarantino’s cult following is pleading for him to ditch the 10-movie retirement plan entirely. The Revenant writer has already created a script for the Star Trek rendition, and Tarantino is rumored to be in talks with J.J. Abrams about the film. However, the rights for the film are currently up for grabs between Viacom and CBS, which may put a dent in the plans. Tarantino has also talked openly about the potential for another Kill Bill starring Uma Thurman. He mentioned in a press conference, “Me and Uma have talked about it recently… We were talking about it literally last week. If any of my movies were going to spring from my other movies, it would be a third ‘Kill Bill.’” Either of these potential movies would be a great way for Tarantino to end his directing career. However, a dramatic horror flick seems to have grabbed fans’ attention. No matter what he decides, Tarantino’s last film is guaranteed to fill theater seats and rake in millions at the box office.

Once Upon a Time In Hollywood does come dangerously close to a horror film, with one particular scene involving the Charlie Manson family. Tarantino may have received inspiration for the horror film after creating the Spahn Ranch scene. He said in an interview, “I do actually think that the Spahn Ranch sequence is the closest to a horror sequence… And I didn’t quite realize how good we did it, frankly, until my editor told me. He goes, ‘the Spahn Ranch sequence is a horror film…it’s “The Texas Chain Saw Massacre” with a budget.’” According to Fandango, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood was the highest pre-selling movie in Tarantino’s career. It reached over $41 million in sales on opening weekend and is currently playing in theaters throughout the U.S. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, this film is guaranteed to make you laugh, scream, and get excited for Tarantino’s tenth and final film, no matter what it turns out to be.
