I know we have talked about it before [click here], but your movie The Bunnyman Massacre - in a few words, what is it about?

 

It's the continuing story of Bunnyman's journey through the midwest, as he continues to run into various adventures. Instead of introducing new "teenagers" that are killed, we decided to tell a horror sequel from the antagonist's point of view. To actually have a film about Bunnyman, instead of his victims. That was a big change of direction, which continues on with Bunnyman 3. The film is called Bunnyman, and as such the film should be about Bunnyman and not some random group of teenagers.

 

Sarah, the lead character of The Bunnyman Massacre, makes some pretty tough and often at least questionable decisions - so to what extent could you identify with her when writing the character, and any other characters you could identify with more?

 

Her decisions were made from my desire to make a unique horror film with characters making decisions that I've never seen in a horror film before. Nothing from my personal life informed my writing of the character. As time goes by with these films, honestly I relate more and more to the Bunnyman character. To clarify, not that I want to kill people but rather that I'm independent and enjoy my alone time.

 

Do talk about The Bunnyman Massacre's look and feel for a bit, and how do you think does it compare to the first Bunnyman?

 

I also feel the film is more atmospheric. I learned how vital to a low budget horror film a location is, and I really tried to maximize it's potential. 99% of the film was shot on one location, so I'm proud of the fact that it has such a expansive feel to it. This is also the first time I used time lapse photography, which I really liked and plan to continue to utilize.

 

The Bunnyman Massacre features a few quite gruesome scenes - so for the sake of all the gorehounds among my readership, do talk about your movie's killings for a bit, and how were these scenes achieved?

 

I wanted unique kills that I haven't seen before. I have never seen a giant bunny in a school bus slaughtering kids. That was the scene I thought about first, and I knew I had to make a Bunnyman 2 just for a excuse to film that scene :) There were other scenes with the girl in the barrel, which while I don't feel graphic was still disturbing and "fun" in a way. Same goes for Sarah's death, which I would like to talk more about but don't want to ruin Sarah's death for first time viewers.

 

Do talk about your movie's cast for a bit, and why exactly these people?

 

I chose the actors because they were the most talented actors that auditioned for the film. Also, because they had a good work ethic and were good people to work with. I can't stress how important it is to get actors that are not difficult, and that are team players. We just finished Bunnyman 3, and we had an actor quit after a few days and try to blackmail us for thousands of Dollars. We had to reshoot a few scenes, and change the story slightly. However, the film is better for not having him in the film. This does nail home the point that you need to have people you can trust.

 

The Bunnyman Massacre is mostly an outdoors film - so what can you tell us about your locations, and what were the advantages and maybe also challenges of filming there?

 

As I mentioned before, the location gave us a lot of different geography to shoot in. We had the mountain range, and right next to it we had a forest. We had everything on the location we needed to make the film. The locals were bat shit crazy, and the heat was brutal with the average day being over 100. It was dirty, dead animals everywhere.... flesh eating wasps, tarantula's just walking along the ground etc. It was rough. One behind the scenes video explains the situation well. We went to get fast food with the actor in Bunnyman's burned make up. We got there, and we thought the employees would be scared. They didn't even blink an eye. It just goes to show you this was the area we were filming at where someone burned like Bunnyman would be your average customer.

 

What can you tell us about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?

 


Other then the locals/weather conditions, most of the cast and crew really bonded over the shared experience. I know some of the cast are life long friends and still talk to one another. It was a professional shoot, professional atmosphere where we just got the film done.

 

Since slasher movies are rather sequel-prone - will there be a Bunnyman 3, and/or any other future projects you'd like to share?

 

Yes, we just finished shooting Bunnyman 3 last week. Please check out the Bunnyman Facebook pages for pictures. It's another leap in quality for the Bunnyman films as well. The next film I'm working on, Blood Angel, will be made next year.

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

 

Bunnyman 2 and Bunnyman Massacre are the same film. Not to confuse things further, but "Bunnyman MassacreW was the title for the first film in UK, so Bunnyman 2 is called "Bunnyman Resurrection". I'm not responsible for these decisions, but I will do my best to make sure Bunnyman 3 is simply known as "Bunnyman 3" [later to be renamed Bunnyman Vengeance though].

Thank you for your support! Please buy the DVD if you are interested in the filmmaking process. We have hours of extras on the DVD to make it worth the purchase. Also, the version on Chiller is censored with 20 minutes cut out of the film, so the DVD is uncut.

 

Thanks for the interview!

 

Thank you, anytime :)
