Marvin, you have done several screenplays for Indy film?

 

Nothing to set the world on fire yet, but this I have done. I prefer writing. I am no actor.

 

You have sometimes used a few unflattering aliases in your work such as Bloody Marvin or Marvin Flathead. Why?

 

They are not unflattering if you know the story. The former is a nickname from high  school, as I was always crazy for horror film. The second refers to a short haircut I used to have. It is inside humor all the way.

 

You live in Ohio now?

 

Yes, in Akron and I want out. Several years ago there was an Indy horror producer here name Bookwalter who was based in Akron. He had sense enough to get he hell out of here and head for California. I want to do likewise. While there are some opportunities in Indy cinema in Ohio, there are not that many. If  you own your own Indy company you can get someplace in Ohio, but it is a pain in the ass. Then when you do bust your ass and produce something you have every net get and asshole out there running down what you do and thinking they are fucking cute. These smalltime critics really overdo it when it comes to  perception their own self importance. Their opinions mean nothing, but they are an annoyance. I am doing something. They are parasites shooting their mouths off to their college friends about the hard work others do when they in turn do nothing.

 

This is why you seldom do interviews?

 

Correct. I hate the press in most forms. It is worse around the Akron area as you have all these old farts in charge of the libraries, the festivals and the like, who get offended by sex and profanity and live in a different age. They want to go back to the days of Roy Fucking Rogers [Roy Rogers bio - click here]. They are as out of touch as the net critics, but in a different way. For example, The Monster Within, which I worked on as scriptwriter and you are familiar with for many reasons, was actually banned from an indie film fest at a library in the Canton, Ohio district because it used the word ”jerking off” and spoke of but never showed an incest scene. One would think libraries would stand against censorship and not for it, but not here. Ohio is a cultural deathbed.

 

What is your take on The Monster Within?

 

A very good haunted house short. A few net assholes were running it down and my suggestion to them is to go cut a tin bill and peck shit with the chickens. They had no idea how hard I worked writing a script from a short story for that. I worked too hard to have some dipshit tear it down.            

 

You have worked quite a bit with Blue Kat Boneyard in Canton?

 

They were a starting point, but I am looking to branch out. I am going beyond just horror. The Monster Within vibrated a lot of positive attention aside from some of the local negative press that I do not give a fuck about. I am looking at other avenues as well. Nothing against BKB, but there are some other roads I want to follow.

 

You also did a film called Weirdo with them ...

 

Helped edit it. Sounds like a horror film, but really a surreal piece that has nothing o do with horror. The idea was to intentionally make the worst film of all time and we even spelled the title wrong at one point in the credits. It offers two hours of film clips supposedly showing what is going on in someone’s head. Trains, graveyards, garbage cans, airports, bullfights, fishing trips, amusement parks, zoos and even a close up of horse shit. The airport footage I provided as I love flight and airplanes. Some people thought this hilarious and others hated it. Face it, some people did not get the concept which shows what I have known along, some people are stupid.

 

Do you have a webpage for yourself?

 

No, though I do have a MySpace, but who knows how long that will be up! MySpace is going the way of the dinosaur. I am planning a Facebook soon. After that I may do Twitter and may hire a webmaster to run a full webpage for me and my products. I need to get more stuff out first.

 

Do you ever attend the film fests?

 

Not too much, but I am going to start. They run a big one in Cleveland every year, but who knows how long I will stay in the area? The west coast is where all the action is. That is where I would do better. I think I could sell my stuff at a table and do well.

 

What are some of your present projects?

 

I am doing something on the history of flight as airplanes and flight have long been favorite topics of mine. I am hoping to do a screenplay on flight and sell it to an educational network or bigger educational DVD place. This is one advantage of living in the Ohio/Michigan area. Loads of material to draw from. Goodyear, which aside from tires has an aerospace division and also made those blimps everyone loves. Also down south there is a magnificent flight museum in Dayton that I would suggest to anyone, including those not normally into such things.

 

You are also doing a screenplay on a religious killer?

 

Already done and being filmed in Indy cinema, so it is out of my hands and I have no connection to it now. Just waiting for it to come out and get my money. Working title of Sin, but it may change. Like with most Indy groups, there is a load of fucking around and dragging ass. No money half the time to get the film finished. I just hope I do not get screwed on pay. In the meantime, I am looking at some other things, as the Indy horror realm is overcrowded now, at least in the Midwest and just causes more trouble than it is worth. Plus so many people involved are either inept and know nothing about what they are doing or do know what they are doing, but are fucking assholes.

 

So you plan to get away from horror?

 

No. I am also working on a screenplay for a horror tale of my own titled Playmates. It is a vampire tale about a man who has been treated for mental illness, unable to distinguish fact from fiction and maintaining in his youth an imaginary friend was real. The idea is to have him be revisited by said imaginary friend as an adult and find said friend to be a vampire able to change shape or form, from kid to adult. I think once done it will do well. I am sure I will sell it.

 

Ever think of doing it in novel form, and selling though Books on Demand?

 

I don’t do books. An entirely different form of writing.

 

Are you trying to capitalize on the Twilight theme?

 

Shit no! I hate fucking Edward and Jacob. First off, neither of them can act. The special effects and the good looks get them over with the women, but as far as acting gives, they suck. If one wants to see werewolves see the first Howling. Now there are some  werewolves for you. If you want to see vampires, check out Jack Palance in his role of Dracula. Few people know this guy who was known mainly as a gunfighter in movies also did horror. He did a version of Dracula that I believe was just aired as a TV movie, but is now on DVD. His death scene was remarkable. Now there’s a vampire as he should be. Romantic in a way, but evil and dangerous. Not this shit like in Twilight. They look like they all just stepped out of some fashion show in Twilight. I hated the first one and the one that followed and have no desire to see the next.

 

Do you feel Indy film does not get its due respect?

 

Yes. Hollywood has no originality any more. All they do are remakes and they all suck. The Wolfman, My Bloody Valentine, Halloween. The remakes were shit. In Indy film you have to know how to act to get things to work and cannot rely on special effects to get you over.

 

But many Indy people are dare I say, not real good actors?

 

Give me an Indy actor who will try as opposed to some superstar who coasts on his name.

 

Have you ever considered acting?

 

I have no desire to do that. I am interested in screenplays and scriptwriting for film or stage and nothing else.

 

How did you start doing this?

 

In high school I wrote a couple half assed plays for school projects. That is what got me going.

 

You have learned pretty much by trial and error?

 

Yes. I never went to some film school. I think a lot of them are rip offs.

 

Anything you would like to add to this interview?

 

I do not like giving interviews, so no. No thank you.
