Your upcoming movie Homewrecked - in a few words, what is it about?


Homewrecked is a crime thriller that takes a much deeper darker turn.


Homewrecked claims to be based on true events - so how close do you stick to the actual story, how much artistic license do you take?


The first half of Homewrecked is based on a true home invasion that happened in my hometown back in 2009. Now I did change the number of people involved and although the plot twist in the last half does delve into horror it continues ring some elements truth to the very last second.


Other sources of inspiration when writing Homewrecked?


As far as inspiration I guess you can say I drew from two of my favorite 70's films and twisted them together. Those films would be A Clockwork Orange and Rolling Thunder.


Homewrecked is supposed to be the final part of a trilogy that also involves your shorts Night of the Seamonkey and Lamb Feed - so how are these films connected?


Yes, Homewrecked ends a three year journey as I have written, financed and directed a 30 min short every year since 2013. As far as a tie in there will be a small wrap around story, but most importantly this will be a showcase of my all time favorite sub genres done the M.S.R. way.


What can you tell us about your movie's approach to horror?


My approach for this piece was to go as real as the real horrors of the world get. This is a film about society's real living monsters.


Do talk about the look and feel of Homewrecked for a bit!


Homewrecked is definitely darker than my two previous efforts in its look and overall tone. Most crimes of this nature happen in the evening hours and I wanted to stay within the realm of realism.


Homewrecked stars cult movie legend Jim Van Bebber - now why him, what was your collaboration like, and how did you get him even?


Jim Van Bebber and I go back a few years. When I first started out as a writer/producer I had written a piece that he became attached to and when that got put on hold I kept in communication with him.


In 2012 Jim was raising money for a short titled Gator Green and I had helped contribute to make that happen. The following year I made my first short Night of the Seamonkey and was gearing up for my follow up Lamb Feed. The first person that popped into my head to play Rev (Michael Wainwright's character [Michael Wainwright interview - click here]) was Jim. I sent him a script and he agreed to read it in early 2014, but as misfortune would have it, due to scheduling conflicts and timing it just wasn't going to happen - so I cast Michael who did and outstanding job. Now that brings us to 2015 where I knew this was destined to happen. I mailed the script out to Jim and right away we got on the phone and started chiseling away at who this Rick Harper character was in the script. Van Bebber and I came to the conclusion that Rick Harper was not just a victim of intruders or a traumatic past, but a victim of life's big inevitable... now you will have to wait and see it to get anymore.


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


I had a well rounded brilliant cast such as Raimi veteran Tim Quill (Army of Darkness), the multi-talented Sebrina Scott (Overtime, The Rangers), Meghan Chadeayne whom I've worked with previously in Lamb Feed, newcomer J.J. Beasley, Dale Miller and a great special appearance by John Wells (Overtime). I was extremely blessed to work with such amazing people, truly.


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


Set atmosphere was at times very intense and real. We did work some method and improv into our scenes which added some unique rhythm to the on screen violence, but whether or not the cameras were rolling it was definitely an artist's playground.


The $64-question of course, when and where will your movie be released onto the general public?


Homewrecked will most likely hit the festival circuit throughout the states for a few months then get incorperated into a 90 min anthology I will seek worldwide distribution for.

Well I have just sat down to script a bike/horror film titled The Deadly Kind which will see pre production in a year. I also have a starring role in a feature length documentary releasing this June titled Blood on the Reel directed by Johnny Daggers and released by SGL Entertainment. In between I will make film fest appearances with Homewrecked and try to keep my insanity ;)


Anything else you're dying to mention and I have merely forgotten to ask?


A huge Thank You to all my supporters and fans!!!

Love and respect all the way, M.S.R.
