Your new movie Chaos A.D. - in a few words, what is it about?


The film is about an abused housewife, a sleazy politician and a brother and sister who get kidnapped by a group of crazed women and one man on Halloween night. Through out the night the victims are forced to play twisted games and are eventually tortured, raped and killed.


What were your sources of inspiration when writing Chaos A.D.?


Well first I'll give you some background on the script. It's been a story I have been writing and rewriting for the past twenty years. So, my inspiration on the script has changed throughout the years but my main sources of inspiration to the film would be The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Hills Have Eyes, Spider Baby, and even I Spit on Your Grave and Last House on the Left. Also the works of George A. Romero, Herschell Gordon Lewis [Herschell Gordon Lewis bio - click here], Dario Argento and the master of suspense himself, Alfred Hitchcock. Also the current events of today's society have also been an influence to the story with all the craziness on social media and how everything seems to have to be recorded now to post online and all the senseless shootings and killings that have plagued our world for the past few years.


Who did you identify with the most in Chaos A.D. - and honestly, to what extent did you enjoy to create the villains of the piece and the tortures they inflict?


That's a tough one with who I identify with because all the characters are so different from me, but I would pick the character of Vinnie, minus the abusive family and having a sister, but just being a young adult male in a small town and being bored and having to find ways to entertain oneself. And as far as creating the villains, I loved it. I wanted to create brand new villains of horror in the tradition of Michael Myers, Leatherface, Jason and Freddy Krueger. I felt that modern horror of our time didn't have characters like this anymore and I also wanted make them mostly women to make it different as well. I never really seen vicious women villains or monsters. I know there have been many women as killers in plenty of horror films, but I wanted to make a woman character that would be a female version of Leatherface or Jason. The character of Misery is my answer to that. I also wanted them to be ruthless and have no mercy to their victims. Most of their victims they don't just kill off quick, they like to torture them a lot before they die.


Chaos A.D. doesn't exactly shy away from violence - so how were these scenes achieved, and was there ever a line you refused to cross for whatever reason?


I just make sure the actors in the film are safe and not uncomfortable when doing some scenes. I don't want to put any actor in harm's way or do anything they don't want to do. The scenes of killing in the film I don't shy away from the most extreme or gory. I like to come up with insane deaths that will shock people. I know a lot of talented make-up effects artists, like Picardo Limbo, that help me achieve all the gory death scenes.


What can you tell us about your overall directorial approach to your story at hand?


I like to first rehearse with the main actors and give them a background of the characters they are playing and how I want them to play the part. During filming I sometimes act out the scene in front of the actors to show them exactly what I want from them and in the scene. I also shoot my films as well, so I'm juggling getting the camera set up and helping with lighting to going over the scenes with the actors and telling them where they have to be next. It's a lot of work but I love doing it.


Since pretty much all characters in Chaos A.D. get naked and/or are grossly humiliated, how easy or hard was it to cast the movie?


It wasn't hard at all since most of the actors in the film I worked with on many my other films and know that they'll be okay with nudity since they have done it before. I think the only tough role to cast was the character of Tony who is raped by Misery in the movie. I wanted to have a scene where a woman rapes a man, so the scene required for the male role to be nude and the character is raped by the female with a strap-on dildo. Of course the rape scene is simulated, but a lot of actors didn't want to play the part because it was too graphic. We were lucky to find someone that was okay with doing the role.


So what can you tell us about your cast, and why exactly these people?


I am very grateful to have a stable of actors that give it their all and are very talented and fun to work with. It's like having a great lineup for a sports team. You know everyone's strengths and weaknesses and you know exactly where to place them in the movie. Plus they all work well together and have great chemistry.


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


The on-set atmosphere was great. A lot of of have worked together many times and we are all good friends, so it is like we're a big family just making a movie. Most of the film was shot in a studio owned by Zombie Riot Media and they had amazing sets. Bishop J. Stark did an awesome job with the set design and was able to make the film have this larger than life feel and gave the film some great depth. But the whole shoot went very well and I was extremely happy with the way the film came out.


The $64-question of course, when and where will Chaos A.D. be released onto the general public?


The movie will be out very soon on DVD. Right in time for Halloween. Sometime in October it will be out, but pre-orders will start as early as late September on our web site We also have an IndieGoGo campaign going on now until August 29th - There you can purchase a limited edition autograph copy of the movie on DVD. We also have a VHS from Vultra Video, a CD soundtrack, trading cards, posters, buttons, stickers, T-shirts and tons of props and costumes from the movie. I'm also looking into getting the film into some retail stores, on amazon and other video on demand outlets in the near future.


Anything you can tell us about audience and critical reception of Chaos A.D. yet?


It has been great. It premiered on July 9th at Slaughter in Syracuse and got a good reaction from the crowd. All the reviews so far have been very positive. They have been giving great props to the story and the cast, which I'm very happy with. I want this film to branch out more and I know it is still early and the film has not been officially released yet, so I hope when it does more people will see it and hope fans will spread the word about it and make it a must-see horror film.


Any future projects beyond Chaos A.D.?


Well next year myself and Sean Donohue are shooting Death-scort Service Part 2. We even shot a few scenes from it already, but will shoot the bulk of the film in early 2017. I'm also planning on shooting another installment of Naughty, Dirty, Nasty with Ashley Lynn Caputo and Krystal "Pixie" Adams returning. I might be shooting it later this year or early next. We also have a new film called Cannibal Claus, which was directed by Donohue coming out this Christmas. It stars Bob Glazier as a cannibalistic Santa Claus. That film has already been wrapped and I will start post production on it soon. We will also have other Sleaze Box releases coming from other filmmakers that will be out later 2016 and throughout 2017.
