Q&A with Can Türedi, Director of “Glass Cabin”
Name a Horror character you relate to on a spiritual/personal level?
Jack Torrance of The Shining.
You’ve gotta go through some bad ideas to get to the good ones. Tell us one of your bad ideas. How do you get past the bad ones to find your spark?
If I sit and try to come up with an idea, it never works. I don’t remember a specific bad idea I had, but I can tell the spark usually comes from the movement. Being in a weird location or listening to a piece of certain music helps me find my spark.
Do you consider yourself part of a horror community?
I am new to creating horror films. That’s why I don’t consider myself a part of a horror community, but I am excited to create more horror and find my place in the horror community.
When you’re building the world of your film, where do you look for inspiration?
The real locations are the starting point of my films. I like scrolling through house rental websites and find a home for a story, then I visit the place, and just by being there, imagine a story, what could have happened here. Music helps me to determine a particular atmosphere, and then I try to find the right plot.
What would you do if you woke up inside of your film?
I would try to find a crowded place, and I’d try my best not to stay isolated.
Who would be on your ultimate horror villain squad?
Chucky, Samara (The Ring), The Castevets (Rosemary’s Baby), Jigsaw.
Lightning round: Freddy or Jason? Stephen King or H.P. Lovecraft? Practical or CGI? Post Apocalypse or Pre Apocalypse?
Jason, Stephen King, Practical, Post Apocalypse.
