Your upcoming movie Anna: Scream Queen Killer - in a few words, what is it about?

 

An actress. Desperate for Stardom. How far is too far? A sick film director. A scenario many will recognise. Sometimes too familiar. The casting couch awaits my dear. That is Anna: Scream Queen Killer.

 

"Scream Queen" - what does the term mean to you, and how important do you rate scream queens in today's horror cinema in general, and your own brand of movies in particular?

 

At the heart of nature we find the ultimate drive for survival of self and survival of species. The drug of sex drives us. She will never leave the films, never leave, for she is the object of universal desire. Carnal lusting for the most beautiful is pure, ignorance and abuse is the evil.

 

How did the project come into being to begin with? And how did you hook up with your co-writer, co-director and star Melanie Denholme [Melanie Denholme interview]?

 

As sure as gravity attracts, so she and I were pulled together. Inevitable.

 

Anna: Scream Queen Killer seems to be quite, well, extreme in content. Was there ever a line either you or Melanie refused to cross, and considering the film's content, what can you tell us about the on-set atmosphere as such?

 

What point is there to playing half a game, nobody will ever know who wins. Play with all your heart, mind and soul and whether you win or lose, you know that you gave your all.

 

How would you describe the general style and tone of the movie?

 

Life. You walk in, take part, get high, get low, feel every deadly sin.

 

Dark Satanic Magick - what's that one about?

 

Energy, control, free will, empowerment, rejection, abuse, fulfilment, desire.

 

Dark Satanic Magick once again stars the wonderful Melanie Denholme - not that I have any issues with that, but anyways, why her again?

 

She is magick.

 

Dark Satanic Magick seems to be deeply rooted in the writings of Aleister Crowley. So how much research went into that side of your story, and to what extent do you consider Crowley an inspiration for your writing?

 

Crowley was one, there are many. What Crowley learned he used his way. Melanie will show an opposing force.

 

Alien in My Head - again, what's that one about?

 

How will they come? In ships across the vastness of space? Or will they find another way?

 

Your leading lady Nikki Webster [Nikki Webster interview - click here], what will she bring to the table?

 

Insanity. Beauty. Depth.

 

The word "alien" in the title suggests science fiction and special effects - is there any truth to that assumption?

 

There is.

 

Dreaming a Voyeur Death - now there's a promising title, so what can you tell us about the movie behind it?

 

Who has not wished their dreams to come true?

 

The word "voyeur" in the title suggests quite a bit of nudity and sex - which you're not a total stranger of, right? So how far are you going in that direction?

 

There are no humans with a hundred feet that will come anywhere near what this film will do.

 

Anything you can tell us about your cast yet?

 

A dark film, with ultimate depravity cast in darkness.

 

Any other films of yours you'd like to talk about, future projects you'd like to share?

 

Aquinas is, was and always will be - Legion.

 

Any idea when and where any of these films will be released onto the general public?

 

The hands of Chronos will decide.

 

Judging from your filmography, single-person narratives are quite your thing. So what are the advantages but also the challenges of putting all the weight of a movie on just one actress's shoulders?

 

All of existence came from a singularity and the singularity can tell the entire tale – beginning to end.

 

To put the last question on its head, what qualities do you look for in an actress to cast her in a movie of yours?

 

Complete insanity.

 

Any actresses you'd love to work with but haven't yet (no matter how improbable)?

 

There are many asylums yet to visit.

 

In general, where do you draw inspiration from?

 

Inside and out. The atman. The soul. The darkest places.

 

How would you describe yourself as a director?

 

Aquinas.

 

Filmmakers who inspire you?

 

Those who fear not.

The mood commands and changes and turns and twists. Time alters our lives and minds. There is no favourite – there are only fleeting likes.

 

... and of course, films you really deplore?

 

In all things there is merit to be found.

 

Your website, Facebook, whatever else?

 

Aquinas has no website. As if by the dagger of fate the irony of a facebook.com/aquinasfilmdirector is all too funny to laugh at.

 

Anything else you are dying to mention and I have merely forgotten to ask?

 

Sleep well, for now my friend.

 

Thanks for the interview!
