Name a Horror character you relate to on a spiritual/personal level?

Norman Bates…

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?

A haunted chair. Sitting in the chair created a terrifying exuberance akin to an addict’s first high. The chair eventually entices the sitter to enact their own dark desires. I told this idea to some friends and they laughed. One second thought… that might not be a bad thing.

When you’re building the world of your film, where do you look for inspiration?

Photography and art. I sometimes watch other films but don’t like to pull directly from those sources as they’re most likely already lurking around in my subconscious.

What would you do if you woke up inside of your film?

I would take the next train back to civilization!

Who would be on your ultimate horror villain squad?

Freddy (He can get you when you’re sleeping and has a variety of powers), Jason (Brute force and hard to kill), Pennywise (he can exploit your greatest fears)

Lightning round: Freddy or Jason? Stephen King or H.P. Lovecraft? Practical or CGI? Post Apocalypse or Pre Apocalypse?

Freddy. Stephen King. Practical. Post Apocalypse.

What scares you, and does it inspire your storytelling?

The dark as well as the quiet voice inside my head (kidding…kinda) are what scare me the most. The visceral fear of what could be lurking in the dark when I flip off my bedroom light or while camping always seems to inspire new ideas.

And finally, Ghostface would like to know ‘What’s your favourite scary movie?’

THE SHINING
