Your upcoming movie Delusional - in a few words, what's it going to be about?

 

Delusional takes place in a small town and centers around two young nurses being stalked by a masked and black gloved intruder while pulling a graveyard shift at the local hospital which is set to close that very night.

 

Delusional is described as a "stylish hommage to '70s giallo" - so what do you find so appealing about that genre, and some of your genre favourites? And how true will you remain to the genre?

 

I plan to stay as true as possible to the genre, although there are also slasher and thriller elements to the film. Some of my favorite giallo films are Tenebre, Deep Red, and Blood & Black Lace. I feel like there was so much heart and drive put into those films which I feel is missing from recent cinema. I want to bring that back.

 

Other sources of inspriation when dreaming up Delusional?

 

I was really inspired by Dario Argento's works when deciding on the story. Hospitals are a very ominous and creepy setting so I tried to add to the creep factor. Many times I feel like hospital settings are just wasted and aren't really crucial to the story.

 

What can you tell us about your co-writer George Snow, and what is your collaboration like?

 

George is one of the easiest people to work with. He's very serious about what he does and puts his all into everything he does. He knew from the get-go exactly what tone I was going for. He really takes his time to delve deep into the characters and understand their psyches. He brings a wealth of experience to the table so I don't think there could've been another writer who understands the ins-and-outs of suspenseful cinema as well as him. His feature, Us Sinners, is available to rent on Netflix so you guys should check it out.

 

Do talk about your film's approach to horror for a bit (as in suspense vs sudden shocks, atmosphere vs all-out gore)!

 

From day one I felt like it was crucial to go back to the basics of the horror genre. I can promise lots of suspense and flat out scary moments. There will definitely be blood, but not too much to the point where it distracts from the storyline.

 

What can you tell us about the film's intended overall look and feel, and how do you plan to achieve it?

 

Lighting is an important part of the film. I'm going for a very bright red and flourescent macabre wonderland. Like a surreal painting come to life.

 

Anything you can tell us about your projected cast yet?

 

I can't tell much yet as it's not set in stone, but we have some wonderful talent auditioning so far. Most importantly, our lead of Bridgette. She's a very dynamic character that's going to be hard to fill but we've found some amazing contenders so far for her part. I think it's safe to say that almost each auditioner has taken a different approach to the character and they've all worked very well. I think she's one that audiences will care about and root for throughout the film.

 

As far as I know, your film's still in pre-production as we speak - so what's the schedule, and any idea when and where the film might be released yet?

 

As of now, there is no set release date although I'm aiming for late 2015 at the current moment.

 

Any future projects beyond Delusional you'd like to share?

 

I have some ideas. I don't want to speak too soon but you'll definitely see more projects after Delusional.

 

What got you into filmmaking to begin with, and did you receive any formal education on the subject?

 

I've been making small films with my brother since I was around five years old. I've always been fascinated by how much effort and time goes in to them and how you can bring any story, any characters, and any setting you want to life. I haven't been to any film school but I know a lot of filmmakers who have been a tremendous help throughout the process and I can't thank them enough for being there.

As I said above, short films, particularly in the slasher genre. I plan to take what I've learned over the years and put it all into this project.

 

How would you describe yourself as a director?

 

I could never compare myself to them, but the best way to describe Delusional's style would be Dario Argento meets Ti West. Dark, chilling, and macabre coupled with suspense and terror.

 

Filmmakers who inspire you?

 

Argento, Mario Bava [Mario Bava bio - click here], Ti West, and Wes Craven.

 

Your favourite movies?

 

Suspiria, Black Christmas, Tenebre, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Scream.

 

... and of course, films you really deplore?

 

Hmm... that's a pretty tough one. I enjoy most films for what they are. Though I can't say I'm the biggest fan of Silent Night, Deadly Night or Freddy's Dead.
