Dante's work is notable for the strong affection he has for [[AuthorAppeal '40s and '50s horror movies]] (''Film/{{Matinee}}'' is a love letter to William Castle, for example), and his taste for black comedy and political commentary. He first got attention for ''The Movie Orgy'', a seven-hour-long collection of weird film clips, ads and trailers that Dante still curates and screens around the country. After a few smaller successes, he directed ''Film/{{Gremlins}}'', which launched a long, contentious relationship with Hollywood, which didn't seem to understand that Dante had [[StrawmanPolitical a few axes to grind]], especially with the political climate celebrating the '50s as a happy Golden Age and the suburbs as a great place to be. With [[Series/MastersOfHorror a few exceptions]], though, he's relatively subtle about his opinions.

* CreatorBreakdown: Arguably only Creator/TerryGilliam has had a harder time making the movies he wants to make.

* {{Hypocrite}}: He hates ''[[MST3K Mystery Science Theater 3000]]'' because of the show's tendency to poke fun at B-movies, despite the fact that Dante has occasionally done this himself in his own works.
