Under the umbrella title Revenge of Awesome, you plan to make no less than five feature films this year. Why that many, and how do you find the energy needed to pull that project through to the end?

 

When I started making short films back in 05-06, I would pool a bunch of actors together from the neighboring towns and they would stay with me and we would shoot like 3-4 shorts or trailers or music videos in a weekend. When I did my first feature which was Creep Creepersin's Frankenstein, we did that in a weekend. My second feature we shot in a night. Once I realized I could do this like this, I just started making movies whenever I could. So by 2009 I was making 9-11 features a year. I have just been lucky enough to work with really great people. So with last year's slate, we had five on it but I ended up making seven last year. So as far as why that many, it's kind of like these movies are movies that I want to make. Not a producer coming in and saying I need you to make me a ________ film that has to be like this, these are films for me. And again I'm lucky enough to not only work with great people but also people who think my stupid ideas are going to be great.

 

As far as I know, Revenge of Awesome is still in its fundraising stages as we speak - so what can you tell us about your fundraising efforts?

 

Honestly, I don't know. Last year we raised a fifth of what we needed but still managed to get the films done. Some independent investors came in once they saw what we were doing but usually, I set a date whether we have the budgets or not and somehow, they come together.

I'd like you to now talk about the individual films for a bit:

Satanicus?

 

Well this film is obviously completely influenced by Argento. Without a doubt. I absolutely love a lot of his imagery in his work especially in the 70s-80s era. I love the dark, sparse, nightmarish set pieces. And all the broken glass. But sometimes the stories didn't resonate with me. I didn't identify with the characters. So like this film Satanicus is like a film for me by him. If that makes sense. It is a "damsel in distress"-film but I really want this image heavy and less dialogue. I have been huge on dialogue and some of my actors get so pissed at me when they see an eight page dialogue scene. With every film I do, I try to push myself into places I haven't been and doing a feature like this kinda takes me back to a web series I did in 07 called Decomposing Jack where it's just super nightmarish and weird but with this film I am almost fully relying on visuals to tell the story. I almost don't want the characters to even know where it's going or what is happening. They will watch it once it's cut and be like "that's what I was looking at?" or "that's what I was reacting to?" - it will be a lot of fun.

 

Why a giallo-style thriller, what do you find fascinating about the genre, and some of your genre favourites?

 

Honestly, Opera, Inferno, Tenebre, I don't know if you would count this one but Strip Nude for Your Killer is great. But really my love for the genre is mainly in part to Goblin. I listen to Goblin a lot when I'm location scouting or getting ready in the morning to get to set. This film I've wanted to do for a couple years now and just thought it was time. I was actually taking a shower at 6am listening to the Tenebre score before going to the White Zombie set and said to myself, "it's time!" That's how stuff usually works around here. Haha.

 

A Woman Troubled?

 

This is about a woman who starts off fucked. We see in the first minute that she has killed her abusive husband. And in fear she hides the body. She knows a rough shady guy that lives next door and gets him to help her take care of her problem. He gets physical with her too and she has to do something else unthinkable. Then after a few days two detectives come asking questions playing good cop bad cop. Good cop falls for her and bad cop knows she's guilty and tries to extort her. So it's just like one fucked thing after another. And we are left with this triangle and how to proceed from there.

 

How will you approach the noir-aspects of your story, and why did you choose shooting it in black and white?

 

Well, I love that 1940s glamour look that the actresses had. I love films like Laura and The Woman in the Window and such, but then in the 60s you had those roughies come out that were like noir films but super violent and exploitive and cheap like The Defilers, Scum of the Earth and Bad Girls Go to Hell. So I want to try to merge those two in a classy way. I want to shoot in black and white because I really want to have those hard edges on the lights. I want there to be distinction in the black/white, good/evil thing and also there will be a lot of cigarettes. I want to smoke to hide people faces and intentions and dance in the light.

 

Murderous Assholes?

 

Now this film is one that a ton of companies have passed on because they think it's just too much. I've been trying to get this made since 2009. It's a great script and I'm tired of waiting for someone with the balls to say "Yes, let's do it!" It almost happened so many times. It's time.

 

Gay gangster action comedy - you just have to elaborate on this!

 

It's about a private dick who is about to kill himself when a not so attractive tranny/drag queen walks in and asks him to kill her ex lover who happens to be the head of the West Hollywood gay mafia. All the characters in this are gay but we aren't like "oh we are all gay!", it's just that they all happen to be. It's like Pink Flamingos meets Pulp Fiction by way of Ruthless People. It's super fun.

 

Romance Macabre?

 

It's a story of a totally awkward dark guy that has no social skills falling for a girl that's a tad bit above his equal who finds his awkwardness charming. But due to his inability to communicate properly and lies stacked upon lies to impress loses her and tries to win her back.

 

Flat out: Why a romance film, and how will you approach the genre?

 

Because there are tons of people who fall into these descriptions and there aren't really any films like this for them. And these fuckers fall in love too. It's almost like Natural Born Killers but the couple are total sweet social misfits who aren't murderers per say but completely have no filter telling them right from wrong. Just socially inept.

 

The Visible Man?

 

It's about a guy who while working on an experiment for the government on invisibility, has an accident, that makes the whole world invisible but him.

 

With films about invisibility being traditionally a tad heavy on the effects side, how do you plan to tackle that challenge?

 

There aren't any effects. Everyone is invisible. They aren't there. Lol.

 

Speaking about all five films: Anything you can tell us about your projected cast(s) yet?

 

I can tell you that if you follow my films you will see some familiar faces for sure. With out a doubt. But you will also see some that will surprise the shit out of you. But that stuff will be revealed in the coming weeks. Charlie Vaughn [Charlie Vaughn interview - click here] is the lead in Murderous Assholes. He always has been. He has been the one championing this film from the start.

 

With stories as diverse as the above - where do you get your inspiration from?

 

I love genres. I love the different types of films out there and that by not really knowing it there are formulas for them. It's neat to know that if you add this story element here and this kind of character here with this kind of shot there you end up with this _________ genre film. That intrigues me greatly. Pushing those ingredients and bending those aspects ever so much is really fun. You end up with something so different but yet so familiar. So it's like exciting to see something you didn't see coming in a film that your brain finds soothing due to the repeated nature of the formula. I also get inspired by finding two genres that shouldn't go together and making them fit in this weird collage of a film.

 

Once your funds are raised, how do you plan to proceed - and any idea yet when any of the films will be released onto the general public (and yes, I know it's waaaay to early to ask)?

 

I'm guessing these will be wrapped by August. Hopefully these will start being available by years end. If you ever wanted to talk to me about the future of distribution and where the biz is going, that might be different questions for another time. With my output, I have seen every trick and shady dealings with distributors and networks. I can talk your ear off about all that for hours. Haha.

Yes. We are wrapping our White Zombie remake that I'm doing with Elina Madison very soon. It's really weird for me because I'm playing the Bela Lugosi role [Bela Lugosi bio - click here]. Big shoes to fill. After that we are doing another classic remake, then I'm going to Minnesota in March to shoot a werewolf film with a producing partner named Joseph Crandall who I've worked with a lot in the past. In fact we are running a contest right now through my new podcast called Creepersincast where we are looking for someone to name the film. If you win, we use your title, give you a writing credit and a bunch of other little goodies. I'm also starting a video talkshow that will start airing on my YouTube-channel www.youtube.com/Creepersin called Creep's Show. It's going to be really fun. So for any of this info just check Creepersin.com often.

 

Last year, you launched (and finished) a project similar to Revenge of Awesome, which we talked about at some length [click here] - anything you'd like to add to last year's conversation?

 

Yeah. The films came out great. Lots of good stuff. Worked with amazing people. Had a blast. Hopefully those will start becoming available in some form here in the coming months.
