Your new movie Apparition of Evil (at least your segment) was entirely shot found footage-style, and I believe it was also mostly ad-libbed - so in what way, if at all, did that influence your performance?

 

Well it made it slightly difficult, there is only so much that you can do in a found-footage scene. I mean, how many people just set up a camera in the corner of the room to film their day-to-day events? It was challenging to find a reason for my character to keep filming incidents, but I think we did it in a clever way. Luckily the idea of a video diary, documenting his house move, gave the character a handy excuse to keep filming things as he went along.

 


How did you get involved with the project in the first place, and how did you end up as the movie's producer?

 

I started filming my segment before the overall feature was even planned, just as a personal “pet project” really, between my acting jobs. Then I had the opportunity from a contact I have with a distribution label to submit any unreleased features that I owned, so I decided to finish filming “The Move” (which is what it was called way back then). It became tricky to pad the story out to feature length, without seeming too boring for the viewer, so I decided to keep “The Move” as a short film and film a wraparound to bookend it as a feature film. It then became “The Curse of Carrie” and eventually “Evil Apparition”, and then, “Apparition of Evil” upon release. I’m glad we didn’t decide to call it “The Curse of Carrie”, as it’s a bit of a misleading title, the character of Carrie is barely seen on screen in the final edit, and I don’t think her name is even mentioned in the story. So anyway, that’s how I ended up as the producer, it started out as just my own short film that grew.

 

As far as I know, you had a big hand in the casting of Apparition of Evil - care to elaborate?

 

Kate Marie Davies

Keiron Hollett

A lot of the cast I knew from being friends with them from previous films we’d worked on together, Dayna Shuffle [Dayna Shuffle interview - click here] and Paul Sutton [Paul Sutton interview - click here] were actually working with me on a music video for a band called Great Northern Hotel at the time we filmed their scenes. I’d spoken to them briefly about my project and we agreed to film some improvised scenes while we were together, I gave them a brief backstory to our characters and to the haunted house, but I didn’t want to give them too many details in order to keep our first meeting more natural. And it actually worked out brilliantly because both Paul and Dayna came up with story elements that actually were integrated into the mythos later in the film. Keiron Hollett, who plays Alton in the wraparound, is my partner in crime and we have been working on a couple of feature film projects recently, he has been helping out a lot behind the scenes. I met Kate Marie Davies while filming Blaze of Gory in South Wales and I’d been wanting to work with her for a while, having seen some of her work on the preview clips for Kaleidoscope Man. I had also been wanting to work with my friend, and horror genre icon, Suzi Lorraine [Suzi Lorraine interview - click here] too, but as she lives in America we had to figure out a way to incorporate her into a scene shot in England. A voiceover cameo was the natural solution, she did a great job and I hope her fans enjoy her cameo in the scene.

 

What can you tell us about your director Brel Offkel [Brel Offkell interview - click here], and what was your collaboration like?

 

A lot of my scenes were shot alone, it was just simpler really. Especially when my character was running about the house or on location, there was always the worry of catching a crew member in shot. So we all agreed that I’d work on the Hendry scenes alone (except for any SFX shots, where I couldn’t do it on my own).

 

A few words about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?

 

On Apparition of Evil there were lots of different shoots, in different locations with different cast and crew. So each scene had a very different experience for me, as an actor I enjoyed every minute of my scenes, but as producer I think I preferred working on post-production the most. I was sorry when it was over, which is why I decided to start another film. I would have loved to have been present on the Australian and American units, Dion Cavallaro, Cain Harrip, Chad Hylton, Kelly Hylton and BJ Hylton led those units, and their segments were shot before I came along. I love how those two short stories turned out, they are brilliant and so different to each other, they really help break the overall film up, so it keeps changing and stays interesting throughout.

 

You recently also starred in the upcoming anthology Blaze of Gory - so you have to talk about that one for a bit, and how did you get hooked up with that project?

 

I got the role through knowing producer David VG Davies [David VG Davies interview - click here]. Blaze of Gory is going to be a really crazy and gory horror, I’ve seen clips and trailers from some of the other segments and they look brilliant. I star in the Beer Cellar segment near the start alongside Kate Marie Davies, Sabrina Dickens and Juliette Strange (among others). The Beer Cellar story is about a couple who run a pub (mine and Juliette’s characters) and they have run into some financial difficulties, but have found a rather insane way of making money fast.

 

Other future projects you'd like to share?

 

Well I’m currently working on a few, but you know how it is, we can’t always talk about them until near the release. I’ve just finished working on a scifi called Portal, which is about virtual reality addiction in a time where programmes are dealt in the shady underworld, almost like drugs. I’ve also been working on a couple of horrors, a demonic possession movie called Blood Curse, starring my good friend Melissa Hollett [Melissa Hollett interview - click here], and I’ve also been working with Brel again on a zombie film.

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

 

Aye, people should check out my other recent release; Theatre Of Fear! Out on DVD in the UK at the moment. It’s about a crazy family of carnival performers who enjoy killing people, but the wealthy father of one of their victims hires a hitman to track them down. I star as Trinculo, a disfigured clown who is falling in love with a girl he only just met, and will do anything to be with her. I've also got another film coming out (probably out by the time this interview goes live) called Legacy Of Thorn, I appear as John Lawrence alongside Melissa Hollett, we play the parents of the protagonist Jess (played by Jade Wallis) in the flashback scenes, people should also check that out, it's a gory slasher film and a lovely nod to the slasher classics of the 1980s.

 

Thanks for the interview!

 

A pleasure as always, Michael!
