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


The Gardener is about a gardener who is down on his luck and losing clients fast. The clients are canceling their service and the gardener has plans for them which he believes will lead to gaining more business.


From what I know, The Gardener is based on a trailer you did for Troma's Grindsploitation anthology - so how did that one come about, and did you always intend to eventually expand that trailer?


No, we did the trailer exclusivley for Troma, but it turned out so good. I'm not trying to toot my horn but it was the best one in Grindsploitation, so it seemed like a great idea to make it into a feature.


What were your sources of inspiration when writing The Gardener?


I have always been influenced by Herschell G. Lewis [Herschell G. Lewis bio - click here] and all the S.O.V. directors out there along with everything Troma put out in the 1980s.


After having done quite a few anthologies, The Gardener is your first full length feature film - so where do you see the challenges there, and what made you go feature length with this one?


I have always done anthologies, the biggest challenge was writing a full length script but we did it. I think people will love it.


What have you planned for The Gardener in terms of blood and guts?


There will be lots of creative kills like you see in the trailer, we wont be shy on the gore.


Do talk about your movie's overall approach to horror!


This wil be a lot like the 80s slasher films.


A few words about the film's intended look and feel?


We want it to look like an old drive-in movie.


Anything you can tell us about The Gardener's projected cast yet?


We will bring in a lot of the actors we used in the trailer, and will include a well-known genre actor when we hit our goal.

From what I know, you're currently running a fundraiser for The Gardener - so what can you tell us about your campaign?


We need to raise funds to make the best film possible, and we cam do that with little money.


Once the budget's raised, what's the schedule? And any idea when and where the movie might be released yet?


Not yet we are still in pre-production.


Any future projects beyond The Gardener?


Yes, another anthology.
