Your movie Satan's
Girls - in a few words, what is it about?
It's a funny story about Satan who uses a group of beautiful and sexy
girls to bring the world out of balance. He uses everyone like they were
his puppets, and of course it's also about his old rivalry with God.
were your sources of inspiration when writing Satan's
I wanted to do a female version of Blues
Brothers and create my own version of the Holy Bible.
Do talk about Satan's
Girls' approach to horror!
Horror? It's reality.
But seriously I always loved the combination of horror and comedy.
You also just have to
talk about Satan's Girls'
brand of humour for a bit!
I have a real weird sense of
humour, and I think I lived that out to the fullest in this film.
A few words about your
overall directorial approach to your story at hand?
wanted to entertain the audience, give them some references to films, like Psycho
in the opening shower scene, Blues Brothers, only this time they
are "on a mission from Satan", and Jim Winburn's Evil Altar
("Your soul belongs to me"). For the shower scene I drew a
storyboard to be as close to Hitchcock as possible, and worked it out with
also play one of the leads in Satan's
Girls - so what can you tell us about your character, what did you
draw upon to bring him to life, and have you written him with yourself in
mind from the get-go? And quite honestly, how much fun was it to play
Satan has control over the world in my film, he
pulls the strings. I really had a lot of fun playing Satan. I played him
mean but also very charming. He could do everything the characters in my
previous movies were not allowed to.
Do talk about the rest of your cast, and why
exactly these people?
Humungus is a friend of mine, great
to work with and he is in almost all of my movies. The fact that he's a
wrestler and tatooed from head to toe and bald-headed gives him a special
appearance. Mehdi Malayeri gave such a great performance in my previous
film Paranormal Shades that I wanted him back. And after she played
the female lead Pia in my film Vampire City 2, I always wanted to
work with Veronica Buchecker again. She is just wonderful to work with and
shares my sense of humour. Dominic Marcus Singer (Robert), now a
well-known name in the acting business (Der Pass, Der Taucher,
Vienna Blood), wanted to work with me, his Atalo
Media Group co-produced the film and he also brought lead
actress Victoria Fraunberger (Cherry) on board, who worked as an extra on films
like Baywatch and Pitch Perfect 3 in the USA, and Mike
Lomoz, who played a great and funny version of God. Conny Boes (Bobbie)
applied for my casting call, and she brought Maria Mucha (Pepper) and
Dominik Hauser (Jesus) on board, who were all great people to work with.
A few words about the shoot as
such, and the on-set atmosphere?
I always try to create a
positve atmosphere on my sets. That makes everything much easier, even if
we have long days of shooting. Shooting itself was a lot of fun and as
always, my sets are really family-like. I had a camera man for a few days
and we got along very well. And it was also the last time I shot in this
location because the owner died just shortly after we were filming. I hope
we were not the reason.
Anything you can tell
us about audience and critical reception of Satan's
First there was not so much of a reaction,
we got a nice online review in the Pressplay Magazine and a few
hundred clicks on YouTube, but in January 2022, more than 4 years after its
release, I suddenly got hundreds of likes on our Facebook page and I still
get royalities every month from Amazon Prime, so we must have a lot
Any future projects you'd like to share?
I still plan to make Satan's Girls 2, but this time with an all-American cast, much wilder, crazier and sexier.
