Your new movie Two
Twisted Tales - in a few words, what is it about?
Iím just gonna give you the official plot outline thatís on our
IMDb page, ďThe Visitor returns to bring you two more twisted tales of
terror, including one about Genevieve: The Killer Doll.Ē
stories in Two Twisted
Tales are about objects being covered in human skin - any
explanation for this?
I wanted both stories to have a theme and that just so happens to be the
connecting factor of both stories.
(Other) sources of inspiration
when writing Two
inspirations for this short would be a mixture of Tales from the
Crypt and this YouTuber that I watch called Mr. Nightmare, I
Twisted Tales once returns to the possessed doll Genevieve,
known from some of your previous movies - what makes you return to her
ever so often, how much fun is it to think up stories for her, and will
there be more Genevieve
movies in the future?
we had bigger plans for the next Genevieve
short but because of the
pandemic, our plans werenít possible to go through with. So we put Genevieve
in here to just kind of wrap up her story for now. I do enjoy
films a lot but there is only so much you can do with
that concept and a limited budget. As for the future of that character,
Iím not sure at the moment, I guess weíll just have to wait and see.
What can you tell us about your
movie's approach to horror?
was going for a mix of classic horror and modern horror for this one, the
stories are all about tragedy and terrible situations, but both of them
end with a bit of a wink if you know what I mean.
Twisted Tales you have chosen a narrative-heavy approach, almost
like an audioplay with pictures - why is that, and what can you tell us
about making a movie that way?
the reason why I did it that way was that I was so limited with what I had
to work with so I was almost forced to do it that way, it took a lot of
work to pull it off but I think we accomplished our goal with it.
You also play the
seemingly all-knowing Visitor in Two
Twisted Tales - so do talk about the character, and how much fun
was it to play him?
Visitor is my personal favorite part of the film because I played him in
Tales from Six Feet Under too but I didnít give him much to work
within that film because he was very much a side character. But in this
short film, I would say he is very much the main character and I loved
every second of bringing that character to life this time around.
What can you tell us about your
co-star Alexis Beacher, also one of the executive producers of your movie,
and what was your collaboration like?
is my girlfriend and she loves being a part of my film projects, and this
one is no different, I always love working with her creatively because she
looks at films in a completely different way than I do, and that can be
really helpful to me.
Do talk about the
shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere!
on-set atmosphere and shoot for this one were probably the most relaxed
shoot out of every one of my films so far, I would say we probably had the
most fun shooting this film too.
$64-question of course, where can Two
Twisted Tales be seen?
Twisted Tales will be available exclusively via Amazon Prime Video on
January 1, 2021!
