The following exchange is from an interview in Fangoria magazine:

FANG: You’ve discussed the order in which you’ve killed people in films, that it’s very important to break a circle of support. There’s a particular character in SOUL, Penelope, who dies early on. She's a very God-fearing and pious and could hold an emotional connection with Bug. Seeing as you’ve said the film is partly autobiographical, does that speak to your own relationship with God at all?

CRAVEN: Yeah. Formally, I don’t believe in God, because I think people’s minds are too limited to even have a concept of whether there is a God, and I believe religions have done much more harm than they’ve done good. [2]
