Eight directors of different horror movies, viz. The Conjuring, The Descent, I Saw the Devil, The Devil’s Rejects, The House of the Devil, Dawn of the Dead, Shadow of the Vampire and Evil Dead, are sitting in two parallel rows containing four directors each, in such a way that there is an equal distance between adjacent directors. In row 1, Neil Marshall, Kim Jee Woon, James Wan and Elias Merhige are sitting and all of them are facing north. In row 2, Ti West, Fede
Alvarez, Zack Synder and Rob Zombie are sitting and all of them are facing south.
