Your new movie Devil's Revenge - in a few words, what is it about?

 

A family coming together to rid themselves of the evil curse that has haunted them for generations.

 

How did the project fall together in the first place?

 

I work with Brian Perera, CEO of Cleopatra Records/Entertainment, and he has Shatner signed on his record label and so we all met up and turns out Shatner had a script that heís had for years, so we talked about making it and one thing let to another, and now the movie came out yesterday. Every movie that gets made has a story, itís always a process, often a hard one.

 

What can you tell us about Devil's Revenge's writer Maurice Hurley, and what was your collaboration like?

 

Well, sadly Maurice passed away in 2015, so I never had the pleasure of meeting him. I hope he would like the movie and think I did it justice.

 

A few words about the rather gruesome demons in your movie, and how were they created? And to what degree were you involved in their creation/design?

 

Vincent Guastini is a super talented creature maker, him and his team have worked on some huge movies, so we met up and discussed how we wanted the creatures to look like, and it was a good collaboration, weíve worked together a few times, he can make some gnarly stuff and raw gore.

 

Do talk about Devil's Revenge's approach to horror for a bit!

 

Demonic. I also had a science fiction element in the story and atmosphere was sort of alien-esque - so I embraced that. I love Star Trek. But itís important to be thoughtful during the filming. But itís hard to step back sometimes. Taking risks, sometimes works great, sometimes bombs.

 

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

 

I wanted to tell the story in the most meaningful way I could. I didnít write the script so I had to try and do justice to the script - I guess itís left to the audience now to decide if the movie is good or not.

 

You just have to talk about the impressive caves Devil's Revenge was filmed in, and what were the challenges and the advantages shooting there? And how did you find this location even?

 

Those caves were amazing. Some of the most spectacular places Iíve ever been in my life. Kentucky is an amazing state. Louisville is really a great place. That said, filming inside a cave is tough. Running power and moving about in pitch black caves, ceilings low to need to crouch. I wanted to capture the reality of being trapped in a cave. We had locations department really help us find the caves. They can be hidden entirely with only a tiny entrance.

 

Devil's Revenge stars cult icon William Shatner - now what was it like working with him, and how did you get him in the first place even?

 

It was fantastic to be able to work with such a screen legend. We became friends. We got him because it was his original script - story by Shatner, screenplay by Maurice, so in a way, he actually got us. The man has a strong presence, super talented.

 

What can you tell us about the rest of your cast, and why exactly these people?

 

We had a solid cast. Jeri Ryan, Jason Brooks, Robert Scott Wilson, Ciara Hanna, these folks deserve credit for working in real, deep caves, filled with bats. They were selected because they each have their own talent and energy for the roles.

 

Do talk about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere!

 

The shoot was quite the experience. I was in Kentucky, Louisville for about 6 weeks. Great people down there. Making any movie is a challenge, and this was certainly a challenge because of the locations. Finding all sorts of caves, and dealing with permitting issues, it was a lot. The people around me, Mike Meilander and Max Elfeldt, it was worth it. They were my producers on location. We stayed in the same AirBnB, we hung out, it was fun. I spent a lot of time tweaking the script. Brian Perera deserves the credit for making this movie happen. He is Cleopatra Entertainment, it was really cool of him to give the green light on this movie.

 

Anything you can tell us about audience and critical reception of Devil's Revenge?

 

Too soon to give a real answer. For the most part, the feedback seems to be positive. That said, some people on the internet have certainly not responded well. But Iíve learned there are always going to be people that like or dislike what you do, or who you are. As an artist, if you put your work out there, thatís how it has to be. Thatís how you get the real feedback, and hopefully learn from good criticisms.

Well, I just had the pleasure of collaborating with Greg Filipkowski in terms of opening up the West Coast office of Vispol.tv. Greg and Vispol are masters at making superb videos. So itís a great honor to be able to work with Vispol on commercials and videos. In addition there is a movie I am about to direct in about a month. Canít say too much about it, too early, donít want to jinx it.

 

Your/your movie's website, Facebook, whatever else?

 

I would say to check out Cleopatraís site: www.cleopatra-entertainment.com. Brian and Cleopatra are killing it now. They just picked up a James Franco movie, The Pretenders.

I would say to stay tuned...

 

Thanks for the interview!
