Your upcoming anthology Terror Tales - give us a quick idea
what it's about?
Terror Tales is an horror
anthology based on a YouTube horror called Halloween Creep Tales - see
It will be introduced by the very dark character of The Crimson
Creeper! I guess you could say the old Tales From the Crypt series and
films influenced the macabre side in me.
To ask quite
bluntly, why another horror anthology, and what are the ideas behind it?
The horror anthology is a long-gone part of the modern horror film. I
wonder if some people and modern cinema goers still remember what one is?
They are great. A lot of old school fun like Creepshow (1982) and
George Romero/Stephen King brought the fun out again in horror.
can you tell us about the creation of the Crimson
Creeper in the
He's an entity, a misfit, a
misunderstood soul - a bit like me!
Tales is a horror anthology, I'm guessing horror's a genre rather dear
to you - at all true, and care to elaborate?
into horror... was frightened of horror as a child. I just seem to come
back to it through my DVD collection and people I meet online and can
relate to them.
What can you tell us about the separate
segments that make up Terror Tales, and were they made especially
for the anthology, or how did you find them?
I put a
notice out on Facebook that I was doing Terror Tales and the
response was AMAZING!! I can't give too much away, sadly. I have faith
they'll make the feature work.
What can you tell us
about your collaboration with the respective producers/directors of these
segments, and how did you first get in touch with them?
Facebook. I am surrounded by creative/horror fiends and friends.
about collaboration, you produce this anthology together with Australian
filmmaker Bayden Ray Redshaw [Bayden
Ray Redshaw interview - click here] - so how did the two you first meet even?
The wraparound team: John Von Shelton, Steve
Bayden Redshaw and myself met
through a mutal friend, again on Facebook! We just ended up liking one
another's work on YouTube. Bayden is a great guy!
you tell us about the rest of your cast and crew, and why exactly these
A long story. I had people pull out, so this
is going to be a family affair when it comes to filming the wraparound
segment for Terror Tales. Some of these filmmakers have work out there
and I'd just love to work with them, even through the internet. Amazing!
what I know, Terror Tales (at least the framing story) has not been
shot yet - so what's the schedule?
We (my brother Steven
I) will be shooting throughout the Halloween month of October, 2015.
I can't wait!
