Explaining how he first got into horror movies, Kirk said: "[When I was] five years old, I sprained my arm so I couldn't go out and play. I was sequestered inside because I had to recover from my arm. [I] turned on the television; the first horror movie I've ever seen was on that night — 'The Day Of The Triffids'. I saw that movie and, from that point on, I was just hooked... Those are the type of movies I gravitated to."
