Your new movie Creeper - in a few words, what is it about?

 

Sexually frustrated serial killers who prey on women. The love story that develops is an attempt for our main character to try and have a normal loving relationship. Even a monster can fall in love.

 

With Creeper being a horror movie, is that a genre at all dear to you, and some of your genre favourites?

 

Try not to get stuck in a category for films, but Creeper falls into that horror/thriller category. I've always been drawn to films in this genre that focus on the character development. Not that I don't love an all-out slasher film, but it's more fun when you're rooting for someone to either live or die. Movies with eccentric serial killers like Seven, American Psycho, Natural Born Killers, Nightmare on Elm Street series, and so many more I can't think of off the top of my head, but these definitely fit for Creeper. The idea that everything is seen in a different way by different people. Pretty much base my life on John Carpenter's They Live.

 

What were your inspirations when writing Creeper?

 

The producer Marc Wells came up with the name and wanted to do a film about a serial killer bus driver. Sat down to write it and ended up going in my own twisted direction.

 

Creeper does get rather violent at times - so was there ever a line you refused to cross, and what can you tell us about the violence in your film as such?

 

There is a lot of shock value scenes that to me are pertinent to the character's development. I've found it's been shocking to a lot of my female friends but I assure you you have to watch the whole film to get the big picture.

 

What can you tell us about your overall approach to your genre at hand?

 

The character development. Not a lot of morally rewarding people in the film and that's how it's suppose to be.

 

Do talk about your cast for a bit, and why exactly these people?

 

I can't praise them enough. We were working with a tiny budget and everyone brought there A game from the lead characters to the cameos. Some of the scenes between Levi Anderson [Levi Anderson interview - click here] and Chloe Rosenthal still give me goosebumps. Everyone killed it... figuratively and literally.

 

What can you tell us about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?

 

Might be hard to believe but everyone on the cast and crew is hilarious. I had to vote against a gag reel, thought it would take away from the intensity of the film. Everyone believed in the project and the potential it has.

 

A few words about audience and critical reception of Creeper so far?

 

You guys had a great write up. Thank you. It's been received very well and even won Best Picture, Best Actress, and Best Actor at The Killer Valley Horror Film Festival last year. The idea is to get the word out hear, the negative and positive so we can become better filmmakers and expose people to what's going on in Southern Oregon.

 

From what I've heard, you have only recently finished your movie Covet Thy Neighbor, right? So you of course have to talk about that one?

 

Covet Thy Neighbor is done and released. Check it out along with Creeper and 100 Watt Mind music video at our website, http://tunnel13films.com. Bam, major plug. Little bit of a genre switch on this one. More of a marijuana-, sex-fueled crime drama. Don't want to give too much away so check it out.

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

We will be hitting a lot of different genres, some new music videos, and produce some local projects as well. The future is looking bright for Tunnel 13.

 

What got you into filmmaking to begin with?

 

First film I ever saw in the theater was Fantasia. I was the only kid that sat silent and watched the entire movie along with the credits. Since then I've been writing, making videos in grade school, waiting for the right opportunity...

 

What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to Creeper?

 

Last couple of years have been working crew on films soaking up all the knowledge I can. Recently Black Road, SNL film Brother In Laws, Oscar nominated Wild, Redwood Highway. I am so humbled by all the talented people I've worked with in the last few years. Without them these movies wouldn't be half as good. Film is a moving machine from the person doing paperwork to the director himself.

 

How would you describe yourself as a director?

 

Laid back but firm. Ha, this might be a question for an actor I've worked with.

 

Filmmakers who inspire you?

 

90's child so of course Spielberg, John Carpenter, Wes Craven, Kubrick most definitely. Bobcat Goldthwait, David Fincher, Tarantino, a lot of Paul Thomas Anderson lately. The list goes on and gets more obscure after that - I'll think of 20 more by the morning.

 

Your favourite movies?

 

Such a difficult question... They Live, American History X, A Time to Kill, Evil Dead 2, Dead Alive (Brain Dead), Tommyboy, Blues Brothers, 12 Monkeys, God Bless America, Tao of Steve, Comic Book Villians, Cecil B. Demented, This Boy's Life, Goodfellas, Raging Bull, The Pope of Greenwich Village, Shakes the Clown, Captain Ron, Fisher King, Big Lebowski, A Clockwork Orange, yep I'm all over the place. Once again a hundred others... I literally watch everything. If it sucks after 15 minutes I turn it off.

 

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

I sat through the first Twilight movie... not one person died and it was a vampire movie. And not really into Tyler Perry films, I just see Martin Lawrence shaking his head every time I try to watch them.
