Your new short Genevieve - in a few words, what is it about?

 

Itís a little more than a few words but here is the official plot summary that we have for Genevieve: Ted Morris is attending his son's funeral while two criminals are breaking into his home. These criminals are trying to steal the notorious killer doll, Genevieve, because they think the doll would be worth some money, but these people have no idea what they're dealing with.

 

Basic question, why a killer doll, and is doll horror a subgenre especially dear to you?

 

Yes, doll horror has always been near and dear to me, because the first horror film I ever saw as a kid was Bride Of Chucky, and the first horror franchise that I really got obsessed with was Puppet Master, so yeah I love me some killer dolls.

 

(Other) sources of inspiration when writing Genevieve?

 

I would say short films like Lights Out really inspired me on this one and also the movie Donít Breathe as well.

 

Do talk about the killer doll in your movie for a bit, and how was it conceived, and how much say did you have or demand in its creation?

 

Well, this is a spin-off of sorts from a horror anthology that I did last year called Urban Fears. That was Genevieveís on-screen debut and I actually was struggling to find out what I was going to do for that segment of Urban Fears, but then I stumbled upon the doll on Facebook and as soon as I saw the doll I came up with a whole backstory immediately and the rest is history.

 

What can you tell us about Genevieve's approach to horror?

 

Well, I would say that if you are looking for a quick killer doll horror fix without having to watch a full feature-length film, this is for you, itís short and to the point and I think it delivers with everything you might want.

 

Do talk about your overall directorial approach to your story at hand?

 

Oh okay, so I wanted to dabble in some found footage type stuff again because I havenít done that since I made Night. But I didnít want to go full found footage so I decided to do the film in POV and I think that led to some new and interesting shots.

 

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

 

We got Shawn C. Phillips [Shawn C. Phillips interview - click here] back for a cameo because he played the owner of the doll (Ted Morris) in Urban Fears, and I play one of the thieves, and that is really just because of our limited budget but I think it all worked out.

 

A few words about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?

 

It was only me and my girlfriend Alexis Beacher on set, she helped me with a lot of the puppet work on Genevieve and I basically shot all of the POV stuff myself. It was honestly fun, nowhere near as stressful as shooting a feature-length film, thatís part of the reason why I wanted to make a short is because I needed a break from all the stress that comes along with making a feature.

 

The $64-question of course, where can Genevieve be seen?

 

Genevieve will be out on YouTube and Amazon Prime Video come July 15!

 

Anything you can tell us about audience and critical reception of Genevieve?

 

So far Iíve been getting a lot of great reviews for Genevieve, some peopleís only complaint was that it was too short, but I had them wanting more, so I think thatís a good thing.

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

Well, the reception that Iíve been getting for Genevieve has been so good that I am actually already working on a gore-filled short film sequel called Genevieve Wreaks Havoc.
