EXCLUSIVE PODCAST: Inspired by the work of H.P. Lovecraft, director Gore Verbinski has taken a darker approach to realism in his films like Pirates of the Caribbean and The Ring.

On The Treatment, he explains his penchant for doing what he's told he cant, and reminds audiences that cinema is the casting of spells.
