Your movie Amityville: Vanishing Point - in a few words, what is it about?


Amityville: Vanishing Point is about the death of a young girl named Margaret. Her friends are completely devastated as is the owner of the Amityville boarding house which they all live in. A very eccentric and obscene detective comes to investigate the murder and manipulates them into letting him stay there even though every other resident of the boarding house is a woman. The girls begin to suspect their friend is alive after all and the situation escalates.


Why Amityville? And (other) sources of inspiration when dreaming up Amityville: Vanishing Point?


I wanted to make a sequel to a famous horror franchise and I thought it would be interesting to bring a very off-beat style to a classic story. The film was very inspired by David Lynch and I think this is sort of my homage to him. I was trying to experiment with subtlety because my last film was one of the most batshit insane projects I've ever made so this is a lot tamer but I think it is still very captivating.


What can you tell us about your co-writers Jurgen Azazel Munster, Pailer Ezra and Selena Mars, and what was your collaboration like?


Ezra wrote the passages from the book Jurgen reads in one scene. He's a very good writer and he's good at coming up with weird shit. He has a Facebook page called Sir Isengords Theory Of the Magnificent Spinning Quasi Table which describes the exploits of a professor named Sir Isengord who's consciousness has been trapped in a metal box since 1788. It's pretty wild so I thought it would be cool for him to write some stuff. Selena and Jurgen came up with a lot of their own lines on the set since I don't use scripts. They wrote a lot of their own lines on their phones to memorize them. I should have just credited everyone as a writer but that would have ended up being so many people!


I have described Amityville: Vanishing Point as "the rabid sibling of Twin Peaks" - something you can at all live with, and would you at all like to comment on that?


I can certainly live with that. I've been called much worse. The film is definitely Twin Peaks inspired. Hopefully David Lynch doesn't sue me, but if he does I might get to meet him which would be pretty cool.


At least to me, Amityville: Vanishing Point is your first (fairly) straight genre movie - so do talk about your approach to horror for a bit!


Well I wanted to make a more subtle movie after the insanity of my last film Dark Prism. I wanted to see if I could make something that sort of made more conventional sense - I'm actually surprised how "normal" it ended up being. I don't really know if I want to make any more straight-up horror movies anymore. I actually really want to make a superhero movie because I love superheroes a lot.


You also have to talk about Amityville: Vanishing Point's very own brand of comedy!


A lot of that was Jurgen. He's a really funny guy. I had a few comic relief scenes planned and Jurgen sort of made it so that his character became this person who you hate so much but you almost cheer for him sometimes because he's so funny even though he's a piece of shit and a total sexist. He's like Dale Cooper from hell. I think that's where a lot of the funny shit came from.


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


I wanted to make a movie that was actually scary so I wanted to experiment with darkness and peripheral vision and something always behind under your bed or around a corner. What you don't see is very scary to me.


Do talk about your key cast, and why exactly these people?


Selena Mars is a very professional and expert actress who I met in a Facebook group for women in production. I was trying to cast the part of Mrs Ernie and I could just tell Selena would be perfect for the role and she came down to New York from Rhode Island just to be in my movie which was so cool of her. We met in person the day before shooting started.

Amanda Flowers is a fantastic performance artist and had acted in my film Dark Prism. I wanted to give her a starring role and she definitely delivered. She's also experiences real paranormal events so she was very convincing.

Mickala McFarlane is an artist and model who has been in every feature film I have ever made. She had a pretty big role in my LEAST conventional film Glamarus so I thought I should give her a role in my most conventional film.

Jurgen Munster is a performer who's first speaking role was in my movie Dark Prism. He was mainly known as the lead singer of a very cool band called The Slut Junkies. He's naturally a method actor and I think he is like Nicholas Cage only better. He is very committed and he totally lights up the screen but he actually takes his craft very seriously and tries to completely immerse himself in his characters.

Sara Kaiser is a performance artist who starred in Dark Prism as May West. She's very good also at becoming certain characters and has a very offbeat sensibility that really brings attention to the character.

Max Husten is a really fantastic artist who makes music as Ros Eotb and is also a great painter. He is really good at becoming different people. He is known as his recurring character the information man who unfortunately he didn't get to play in this movie but hopefully next movie he'll be the information man again.


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


It was for the most part pretty fun! I think the one thing was we were very rushed since we made the whole movie in a few weeks.


Anything you can tell us about audience and critical reception yet?

I think the people who get it like it. I think if you're watching it wanting something kind of weird and you understand this is not a mainstream movie then I think you'll like it and those people do love it.


Any future projects you'd like to share?


I don't really know right now. I want to maybe try something wackier, maybe a superhero movie. I've always wanted to make a superhero movie.
