Your upcoming movie Abyzou: Taker of Children - in a few words, what is it about?


Abyzou: Taker of Children is about a young pregnant woman who is possessed by a demon that wants to give birth through her.


Abyzou: Taker of Children is based on a demon from Hebrew folklore - care to elaborate for a bit, and how close do you intend to remain to your source material?


The demon Abyzou is unable to give birth to children of her own, so she curses those who can. We have embellished some of the mythology to fit our story but use a lot of her mythology to influence our deaths in the film.


Other sources of inspiration when writing Abyzou: Taker of Children?


Another source of inspiration was a recurring nightmare I have had since a very young age. I see an old, evil-looking woman floating toward toward me. She reaches out at me and I try to scream. No sound comes, out but I'll be screaming for real in my sleep. I later found out that many people with sleep disorders have a very similar dream, so we incorporated nightmares into the film, which fits nicely because according to mythology Abyzou never sleeps.


Do talk about Abyzou: Taker of Children's approach to horror (as in suspense vs sudden shocks, atmosphere vs all-out gore)?


We're definitely going for suspense and creepy atmosphere, but the film does have a healthy amount of gore. I look at it as a hybrid of a paranormal film and monster movie.


From what I know, you're doing the special effects on Abyzou: Taker of Children yourself - so could you give us a few teasers of what to expect?


I don't usually like to do make-up on my films, as it takes a lot of time, but it is allowing me to do some things effects-wise that I don't get the opportunity to do on other films - like the fetus dropping in the proof-of-concept trailer. We also have a really nice looking effect where an actress gets her heart ripped out of her chest!


What can you tell us about the film's intended overall look and feel?


For this film, practical is the theme. We are really focusing on practical effects and using a great deal of practical lights as well. We want a modern horror look whiling remaining true to some classic horror styles.


Anything you can tell us about your key cast yet, and why exactly these people?


Topher Hansson

The cast is incredible! Topher Hansson is our leading male, and he had auditioned for me a couple years back for another part. While writing the role of Dylan, he was the only actor I could picture playing him. Luckily, he really enjoyed the script and accepted the role, which he is nailing. The character is a funny, compassionate character who has to find a lot of inner strength throughout the film. Zeeva Halpern was cast as the lead Hailee, because she has this natural innocence about her. She really showed talent and dedication in my previous feature, Blood Pi. Playing a possessed character is not the easiest of roles, but she is definitely stepping up to challenge. We also have an amazing supporting cast of actors I love working with: Anacaren Delgado, Jamie Dufault, Jackie Fabian, and of course Abyzou herself, Sissy O'Harra.


You've recently run a fundraiser for Abyzou: Taker of Children, right?So do talk about your campaign for a bit, and with the budget raised, what's the schedule? And even if it might be waaay too early to ask, any idea when and where the film might be released yet?


Thankfully, we have completed our Kickstarter campaign and it was a success! It really means so much that the horror community is behind us. We actually started production before the campaign launched, as we were really raising finishing funds for the film. In the past, I have announced release dates far too early so we are holding off on that for now. We really want to make sure we get this film as good as possible.
