Your new movie The Last Stop - in a few words, what is it about?


Basically think psychological thriller movies. Think Martin Scorsese films. Like Shutter Island, etc. The Last Stop in the same style is a film about a family going on vacation to New Hampshire like they do every year or so. Only this time, Jake Finke has lost his wife and daughter at a rest stop - or so we think...


With The Last Stop being a psychological thriller, is this a genre at all dear to you, and some of your genre favourites?


My wheelhouse of films have seem to be psychological thriller and horror, historic fiction, etc. Yes, psychological thrillers seem to be my favorite type of genre.


(Other) sources of inspiration when writing The Last Stop?


Definitely inspired by movies such as Shutter Island by Martin Scorsese.


To what extent could you actually identify with The Last Stop's Jake's fate, whose sense of reality seems to have been pulled out from right under his feet?


I would say when watching sometimes people with serious issues can be taken advantage of — we see this in this film and as watchers feel sorry at first with Jake's condition, but it’s not what it seems.


Do talk about The Last Stop's approach to the thriller genre!


When writing? I like twists. When making films, I always like putting twists in films. I don’t like one-directional films and always like putting some unexpected twists in the films I make.


A few words about your overall directorial approach to your story at hand?


I would say my overall goal is to see my pages I wrote come to life. When one’s creative vision is portrayed in front of you— there is nothing more rewarding. This movie definitely has some twists and surprises.


What can you tell us about The Last Stop's cast, and why exactly these people?


Our cast is all East Coast talent. The lead Martin Monasterski is from Connecticut and plays Jake Finke. With great actors in this such as Mario Carneiro, who played Detective Rinaldi which had the most dialogue in the film. I’ve been working with Mario since 2020, and he fit into the detective role very naturally. Jeffrey Rossman played the role of Doctor Elliot Shepard and perfected the creepy character with ease. Also with supporting talent such as Ginger O’Toole, who was recently in Netflix docuseries Madoff: The Monster of Wall Street. Also in the film playing Detective Miller is Joe Larsen, an actor from New York. Playing the wife and daughter are Kayla Kohla and Abigail Friend, also from the East Coast. Mark Wither is a local actor and production manager from Connecticut who portrayed Detective Davis. The police officers are local actors from Massachusetts and Connecticut played by Ryan Drago and Rod Norwood. The SUV police cruiser was sourced from Rhode Island and brought to Connecticut to film. We also appreciate the Plymouth Police Department for lending us the undercover cop car appearing in the film.


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


This particular film we shot in November of 2022 and one scene at the end of October 2022. Filming was done in Connecticut and Rhode Island. The cast and crew meshed well and there was a cohesive energy on set — "it’s Miller time" was a line we used as humor when relating to Detective Miller and when drinking Miller beer.


Anything you can tell us about audience and critical reception of The Last Stop?


I would say if you like films with twists then watch this film. As the film progresses some secrets come out about the doctor and other police detectives. Sometimes what is led to believe isn’t what is seems. My favorite quote from the film Swordfish is such — "Misdirection. What the eyes see, the ears hear, the mind believes."

Hawk Studios was just contracted to help film a SAG project directed by George Zouvelos titled Once A Week For Life by Fiat Lux Studios, with celeb actors such as John Fiore (Sopranos) and Dan Roebuck (Rob Zombie's The Munsters). We are also working on two new films a feature and a short in pre-production.

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


I would say any challenges when filming? I would say, yes we did. During second day of shoot we sourced a drone to do some aerial shots and it was windy and rainy. Luckily enough it stopped and we got our shots.


Thanks for the interview!
