UNSTOPPABLE: Director Adam Green On The Long Road To ‘Victor Crowley’

UNSTOPPABLE: Director Adam Green On The Long Road To ‘Victor Crowley’

Director Adam Green continues to his quest for world domination.

With his early success, many were quick to write Green off as a flash in the pan, despite the fact he had already been cutting his teeth for years in the business. At the helm of ArieScope Pictures, Green continued to feverishly pour his heart and soul into his work. His tireless efforts would result in a plethora of unique films such as ‘Frozen,’ ‘Grace’ and ‘Chillerama,’ not to mention the always hilarious ‘Holliston’ television series, which is also the brainchild of Green. As the years passed, the growing popularity of Victor Crowley would result in two sequels, ‘Hatchet II’ and ‘Hatchet III.’ There were no signs of slowing down for Green as he soon teamed with Joe Lynch (Mayhem, Everly, Knights of Badassdom) to create and host one of the most successful (and addictive) podcasts on the charts with ‘The Movie Crypt.’ While this Cliff Notes version of his resume makes it sound like a walk in the park, Green will be the first to tell you that’s this is simply not the case. Over the past 5 years, since our last interview with him, he has endured the trials and tribulations of a rocky divorce, the loss of his best friend, (legendary GWAR frontman Oderus Urungus aka Dave Brockie) and emerged from depths of a deep depression to continue his climb to the top!

In August of 2017, fans of the ‘Hatchet’ franchise were blown away by the news that a surprise fourth installment was filmed in secret by Adam Green and was ready to be unveiled! After a successful crisscrossing of the nation to celebrate the 10th anniversary of ‘Hatchet’ and premiere of the film on the ‘Dismember America Tour,’ the legend is finally coming home!  ‘Victor Crowley’ arrives on Blu-ray, VOD and digital platforms via Dark Sky Films on February 5th, 2018. What’s it all about? Easy. In 2007, over forty people were brutally torn to pieces in Louisiana’s Honey Island Swamp. Over the past decade, lone survivor Andrew Yong’s claims that local legend Victor Crowley was responsible for the horrific massacre have been met with great controversy. When a twist of fate puts him back at the scene of the tragedy, Crowley is mistakenly resurrected and Yong must face the bloodthirsty ghost from his past. Set a decade after the events of the series’ first three films, ‘Victor Crowley’ reunites Hatchet mainstays Kane Hodder (Friday the 13th 7 -X’s Jason Voorhees) and Parry Shen (Better Luck Tomorrow) for an all-new, horrifying journey into the haunted, blood-drenched bayou. The ensemble cast of ‘Victor Crowley’ also features Laura Ortiz (2006’s The Hills Have Eyes), Dave Sheridan (Scary Movie), and Brian Quinn (truTV’s “Impractical Jokers”).

Jason Price of Icon Vs. Icon recently caught up with Adam Green to discuss the long road to ‘Victor Crowley,’ the challenges he faced along the way, and his continuing evolution as a filmmaker. It’s a wild ride, so strap in and prepare to be inspired!

It’s been about five years since we sat down for an interview. We last spoke for a “Hatchet III” press day. Your world changed exponentially in that time. My final question for you last time around was — “How do you view your evolution as an artist?” You were going through so much, personally and professionally at the time, you said you hadn’t taken time to think about or appreciate all you had done. So, five years later, I pose the same question — How do you view your evolution as an artist?

Wow! That’s a really good question. I’ve been doing these for a while now and that’s probably the best question I’ve gotten. Fuck! [laughs] Ya know, I try to not think about it too much because I don’t want to, artistically, get caught up in trying to plan things out too much; especially since I’ve learned that you can’t plan anything out, no matter what you do. This franchise was supposed to be over with part three. If you had asked me three years ago, I would have told you there was absolutely no way in hell there would have been another one. Then life happened. I think the best way to answer the question about my artistic evolution is that I think I’ve learned a little bit more to roll with the punches and not hold onto things so tightly. One of the best learning experiences that I had was with the “Holliston” comic. It was the first time that I had ever released my grasp on something just slightly and let someone else into that world. The guys who wrote and made that comic book did such a great job that, when I read it, it showed me what other people see in that show. It made me realize what it really is and love it. I was at a point where everyone was saying, “When is season three coming?” All I could see with “Holliston” was the death of my friend and it hurt too much. Every time I would try to write it, the stuff I was writing would be so dark. We would rehearse, and I could see the rest of the cast was uncomfortable with the material, nobody was feeling it and I was trying to force it. Giving control to someone else really, really helped. Now, it’s not so much about trying to plan out everything and control it as much. It’s more about responding to what’s actually happening, which is very true with “Victor Crowley” as well. I worked out so much of the dark shit that I went through in this in such a funny and entertaining way. I wish everybody could do that because it’s so much healthier than locking yourself in a dark room for a year, not talking to anybody or starving yourself to death, which is what I was doing three years ago at this time.

Adam Green remains under the watchful eyes of his pal Oderus Urungus aka the late Dave Brockie.

You are an inspiration. You put yourself out there on the Movie Crypt Podcast and social media. Even when you are facing big obstacles, you persevered. What keeps you driven?

I don’t know. Sometimes I wish I wasn’t. I wish I would fall in love with dentistry or something that would be a little bit more of a reliable thing to do! It’s the moment. I think if anyone is going to be honest about this industry, it’s mostly bad news, mostly struggle and mostly bad shit … but those good moments are so powerful! They keep you going. When something actually gets shot and you’re standing there on set with your friends, you are so overwhelmed by how hard it is and you never have enough time or money. You have all of those frustrations, but you look to your left or right and think, “I genuinely love these people and that I get to do this. It’s incredible.” When you have a thing like this tour that I just finished. Night after night after night, you get to watch the people that you made it enjoy something so much. As good as anything I have ever made has played with audiences, nothing has come close to this one! I think that it helped that nobody knew it was coming, there was no time to build up any type of expectations and suddenly it was here. The fact that it got a standing ovation almost every single night but two. Even those two were half standing ovations but those don’t count! [laughs] As far as I’m concerned, it has to be every single person on their feet or it doesn’t count! The people in the first few rows didn’t realize that the rest of the audience was standing up, so those two don’t count as standing ovations in my book! [laughs] I’ve never seen anything like that for a movie. I think I needed to make this and it saved me in a lot of ways, which was so unexpected. I think the fans needed it. I think they missed Victor Crowley. You have to listen to the fans. You don’t necessarily have to do everything they say to do because otherwise all I would do is make sequels to every single thing I make. At a certain point, you hear something so many times that you’ve got to pay attention to that, which ties in to what I was saying about starting to live a little bit more reactionary, instead of trying to plot everything out. For example, thinking something like, “By this age, I need to have done this. I need to make two movies this year. I need to have three web series, my own company, a weekly podcast.” All I was going to do was kill myself — not that I’m stopping doing all those things! [laughs] I just approach it all differently now!

You mentioned the feeling on set when you surround yourself with a great team of people. With “Victor Crowley,” there are old faces and new faces with the cast. What do these people bring out in you creatively?

Yeah, I’m blessed to have these people and it’s not just the crew. It’s the crew, especially! For a lot of the things I do, it’s the same key players behind the scenes. I think that’s something that has helped the “Hatchet” series last as long as it has. You have the same principal people coming back. I don’t think there is another franchise that really has that. It just changes everything! There’s a trade-off with it. If you could have asked me, when I was 8 years old, what the dream case scenario was, it would have been me telling stories, making things up and only working with my friends. I got that in every way, shape and form. I should feel like I did it and I got the golden ring and be happy with it, but the trade-off is that if you only want to work with the people you want to work with, you’re going to have to do it on a very small, independent level. Everything has been such a struggle from getting these things made to actually making them and beyond. I’ve never once had anything that was marketed. I’ve never had real money behind it with commercials or billboards everywhere. “Holliston” had some billboards and stuff but what was weird is that FEARnet put everything in New York and LA and neither place carried their network! [laughs] There is always something that seems to go so wrong! A lot of people, at this point, aren’t even surprised anymore! They’re like, “Only you!” [laughs] Having those people to lean on brings out the best in you because you are so trusting.

It’s something I stress on the podcast a lot; if you’re gonna direct, you’ve got to remember that you are only leading. You’re not the one making the movie. You’ve hired these people and surrounded yourself with them because they are so good at what they do. Your job is to have the vision, tell the story and guide everybody but also let them do what they can do. I think that’s why we are able to outshine whatever the budget might be. People always ask, “What is the budget?” I don’t even know how to answer that. The little amount of money we are given is one thing but what actually ends up on the screen is worth so much more because of all the favors that we pull in. Bear McCreary is probably one of the biggest composers working today. He does everything, yet he still produced this score! Sam [Ewing] and Jason [Akers], who wrote the score, did so under, Bear and Bear produced it. You can’t put a price on something like that. The same holds true with the sound designer, Matt Waters. Matt has done the sound design on every single thing I’ve ever done, and he just won his second Emmy for “Game of Thrones.” He does not need to be doing this and he literally did not get paid a cent but he’s part of the family, so he is there. Those types of things are absolutely invaluable and I would be nothing without the people around me. The DVD and Blu-ray for “Victor Crowley,” there is 90 minutes of special features that my assistant, Austin [Bosley], shot. The distributor never pays for those things, which is nothing new. I think toward the end of the early 2000s, the whole concept of needing special features went away, which is really sad. I live for those things! When it’s a movie I like, I want to be able to see the making of it, hear the commentary and all of that stuff but it’s something that is kind of going away. With this release, it was like, “If you have anything, we’ll take it, but you have four days to do it.” I couldn’t do it with everything else I was doing. For the first time, I was going to accept defeat but then Austin was like, “I’ll do it!” What he put together is so incredible! I don’t know if you got the “Raiders of The Lost Ark” or “E.T.” Blu-rays that came out a couple years back but on both of them they had this fly-on-the-wall thing. It was eight minutes of untouched behind-the-scenes footage. No interviews or editing. You’re just watching Spielberg make the movie. I would pay anything to just be able to see another hour of it! That’s what we’ve done this time. One of the special features is called Fly On The Set and it’s an hour of untouched footage where you watch the entire movie get made from start to finish as if you were there. It’s invaluable to somebody who wants to do something like this. The point is, there is also a 25-30-minute interview with me. At the end of it, I go back to what I said at the end of “Hatchet I” and what I said earlier about the people I’m surrounded with that did this. They can’t teach you that in film school. You can’t buy or rent the latest software. It’s something you have to build from the ground up.

With ArieScope, we’re coming up on our 20th anniversary this October, it’s always been about adding to this family. The same people keep coming back and that’s why I have a career. That and the fans. I’ve never had a chance to have something marketed or bought. It’s always had to be the hardest way possible but it’s a testament to anybody else who wants to do this — We’re not all going to luck out and get handed a big, wide release or a studio movie to direct. I use the word handed very lightly because I’m sure anyone who ever finds themselves with that opportunity has worked very hard for it. I’ve still yet to have that happen. That’s not true. It has happened but then the movie doesn’t actually get made or some executive leaves or something fucks it up every time. [laughs]

Adam Green brings ‘Victor Crowley’ to the people.

What are the biggest challenges you faced with bringing “Victor Crowley” to the screen?

As always, the budget and amount of time was a challenge. Maybe a year from now, I can finally talk about all of that stuff and I can’t wait! I’ve had to sit there on the podcast every week and listen to the guest and Joe [Lynch] complain about only having 25 days or only having 3 million dollars. It’s so hard to not ? … If you listen to the show, you’ll always hear Joe, right when it starts go, “Shut up, you!” He knows what I just did was unheard of! The problem is that if you say that stuff before or right after something comes out than that’s what people see when they watch it. It’s been so wonderful to read reviews or see comments where people are saying, “Well, clearly this is the biggest budget “Hatchet” movie yet!” And this thing was anything but! This thing was made on solely sheer will, blood, sweat and a lot of tears. That was the biggest challenge. I like to write myself into not a corner but a challenge. With a franchise, it would be so easy to fall back on giving what people you know already want or to keep referencing the previous films constantly. With this, setting so much of it inside sinking airplane, it just elevated everything. This is the first movie that actually had suspense and terror in it, as far a “Hatchet” film goes. The other ones aren’t scary at all. They are funny, and they are violent. “Victor Crowley” brings suspense to the franchise for the first time because of the airplane. You have a situation where Angie’s pregnant but if you get off the plane you’re going to die. That’s just a grave situation!

It’s cool to look inside your career and the film. What’s the best lesson to take away from your journey as an artist?

I guess it’s two parts and circles back on what I was already saying. Like I said, I think it comes down to trying to create more reactionary things as opposed to planning it all out so specifically, so when it doesn’t go your way, the devastation is so brutal. If you can try to go with the flow a little bit more, I think it only helps your art. Be like a sponge and absorb what’s happening around you, what you think and feel and don’t be afraid to show that. That’s what gives you a voice and something to say. With the horror genre, especially the slasher sub-genre, anybody can come up with ways to kill people or jump scares. That’s not impressive. My dog could do that. You want to create something that can actually entertain people, have them engaged, smiling, laughing, cringing or crying. In the case of the “Victor Crowley,” there were screenings where people actually cried! It was so unexpected! In the first interview I did this morning, that was what the journalist was saying, that was the last thing they expected to get out of it. It was because I was pouring myself into it. Even though this is such a ridiculous franchise and storyline, that’s so important for people to do. Not a lot of writers are willing to do that. A lot of them write to escape their own life and make everything up but if you can put yourself in everything you do, it’s going to change everything.

Arwen and Adam: An Unstoppable Force.

Secondly, surround yourself with the right people and hold on to them. It never fails; whoever is bringing the money always wants to break up the team that you have. A lot of it is because it’s their money, their risk and they want some control and they don’t want you closing ranks on them immediately from the get-go. They think you are surrounding yourself with people who are going to yes you to death and box them out. Thankfully, even though it has been a fight on certain occasions, I think they’ve always seen that’s precisely why we work. The people who are a part of ArieScope don’t yes me to death and aren’t afraid to say, “I don’t agree with this idea. What about this … ” I remember on “Hatchet I,” I forget what the idea was, but there was a PA who had thrown some idea out. It wasn’t the right idea, but it was the kernel of whatever we ended up doing. It was a situation where the sun was coming up and we were out of time and everyone was fried. A PA made some suggestion that ended up helping us out in the long run. So, surround yourself with good people, lean on those people and fight to keep them there when someone wants to separate you!

What’s the best way for fans to support you and help get your visions to the screen?

The best thing is seeing each release legally. That is huge. To take that one step further, don’t just wait for Netflix or to stream it. Buy a physical copy. That’s what has hurt the indie scene so much! There was a time where even just Blockbuster Video was ordering several hundred thousand units for their stores. Right there it was saving movies at this budget level because it brought the risk factor. If you really like this stuff, buy a physical copy and don’t just stream it, if possible. Obviously, never, ever pirate anything. Not a comic book, a song, a movie or whatever. You are killing everything when you do that. To support ArieScope and myself specifically, we sell everything on our website, www.ariescope.com. Everything comes autographed and there is no extra charge. I’ve never charged for my autograph or photograph at conventions, but we make a couple dollars on everything and those couple dollars keep the studio open. To date, nobody has ever personally received any of that money because it’s a very boutique shop. It’s always been just enough between that or The Movie Crypt Podcast’s Patreon or the Feed Arwen A Treat program to keep this place open. Everything happens here. I live here more than at my house, as does Joe and a lot of other people. This is where we create, shoot and edit. It’s really a haven of sorts, so when you buy something directly from us, that’s what your supporting!

Awesome! Thanks for your time today, Adam! We will catch up soon. It won’t be another five years! Thank you for the content you bring each week and with each film. A big Steven Tyler congratulations on all you achieved!

[laughs] Thank you, thank you very much. That means a lot. I really appreciate that! Take care!

BACK TO THE SWAMP: A Review of Adam Green’s “Victor Crowley”

BACK TO THE SWAMP: A Review of Adam Green’s “Victor Crowley”

The year is 2006. The horror genre is being beaten down with nothing but uninspired sequels, prequels, and remakes. The original slasher film has all but died. Something seems to be missing from the genre. Where’s the fun? In comes a young, up and coming director Adam Green 6 years removed from his last film, “Coffee and Donuts”. He recruits the man who many consider the greatest Jason Voorhees of all time, Kane Hodder, and revitalizes a genre many thought they would never see again.

“Hatchet” hits the festival circuit in 2006 with an eventual DVD release on December 18th, 2007. While it received mixed to low reviews by critics, fans all over the world raved. Finally, a return to form for the horror genre. “Hatchet”, an old school American horror, received massive success from fans and gained a cult following that follows the franchise today. By 2013, Green had worked on two sequels and was ready to give up the character of Victor Crowley to focus on other works. He drops a bombshell with the incredible, “Digging Up the Marrow”. A film that, like “Hatchet” before it, wore its influences on its sleeve. From here Green notes that he’s finished with the series from a film standpoint but you’ll be able to keep up with “Crowley” in comic book form; the “Hatchet” series was dead…or so we thought.

August 22nd, 2017, the original film’s “10 Year Anniversary” show. Hundreds of “Hatchet” fans and stars pile into Hollywood’s Arclight Cinema, expecting to see a presentation of the film that started it all. Instead, fans were elated to see that not only was a fourth film already made, but they were about to see it in all its glory. Needless to say, the hype was real and fans left the theatre ecstatic to see the lovable crazy redneck humanoid back in action. As “Victor Crowley” unleashes on all of us in VOD and Blu-ray, did it meet expectations or should we ship it back to the swamp to rot? Find out as we cover the return of the millennium’s icon of horror, “Victor Crowley”.

Keeping with one of my favorite tropes about any “Hatchet” film, Parry Shen is back! However, for the first time in the franchise, he’s reprising his role as the sole survivor/paramedic from the third film, Andrew. It’s been 10 years since that fateful night on the swamp. Andrew has become a writer and is making his rounds on the press circuit sharing his story. Things aren’t going so well for the survivor as we open on him being interviewed on live TV by his ex-wife Sabrina (Krystal Joy Brown). No one back home believes his story, in fact, they’re under the impression that Andrew is the maniac who axed all of those people years ago. Things take a turn for the worst when his publicist, played by the “Sleepaway Camp” star Felissa Rose, convinces him to return to the swamp for a large sum of money. It isn’t until he gets on the plane that he realizes it’s to film a show for Sabrina. The three, along with a film crew (including “Impractical Jokers” star Brian Quinn) are off for a romp in the swamp. Meanwhile, across the water, a few “Crowley fans” (Laura Ortiz, Katie Booth, Chase Williamson) are trying to make a film of their own. Of course all hell breaks loose as our killer decides to join in on the fun of both parties. What follows is a return to form for writer/director Adam Green: film filled with gore galore and big laughs.

Along with the cast members I’ve already mentioned, the highlight of the film would without a doubt be Dave Sheridan. This man is hilarious in every film he’s in and doesn’t get enough credit. He plays the boat driver/aspiring actor, Dillon, and he steals every scene he’s in. As you watch the film you can truly feel how much fun this cast and crew was having while filming. Definitely my favorite group of death puppets in a “Hatchet” film. The man of the hour, Kane Hodder, is better than ever. This is the greatest Crowley has looked since the film’s original inception, that credit goes to both Hodder and the make-up department. Nightmare fuel.

I thoroughly enjoyed this film and I’m glad to have Victor Crowley back in my life. Green understands his franchise and doesn’t try to reinvent the wheel in any shape. That’s not a knock, on the contrary, it’s commendable for the man to return and give the fans a film they’ve been clamoring for for years. I’ll be honest, if you’re not a fan of the “Hatchet” series this movie is not going to change your mind. It’s a tour de force of crude jokes and gut wrenching violence. Understand what you’re getting and you’ll have a blast. I recommend “Victor Crowley” to any film of the franchise, and anyone who needs their slasher fix. Here’s to hoping a “Digging up the Marrow” sequel is next!

“Victor Crowley” hit DVD and Blu-ray on February 6th via Dark Sky FIlms.

Resurrecting the series for its tenth anniversary was our way of saying thank you to everyone in The Hatchet Army and beyond who have supported this series since its inception. This bloodbath is for all of you.”

VICTOR CROWLEY will hit select U.S. theaters in October 2017 as part of Dark Sky Films’ “Victor Crowley Road Show”, wherein writer/director Adam Green (and other cast) will travel with and introduce the film at special one-night screening events across America. Internationally, the film is slated to bow at festivals worldwide – it will receive its international premiere this Saturday, August 26th at FrightFest in London, England. Adam Green and Kane Hodder will be in attendance for the gala screening.

VICTOR CROWLEY: Director Adam Green Unveils Surprise Reboot of His ‘Hatchet’ Franchise

VICTOR CROWLEY: Director Adam Green Unveils Surprise Reboot of His ‘Hatchet’ Franchise

Dark Sky Films has announced VICTOR CROWLEY, the surprise fourth film in the fan-favorite Hatchet franchise. Kept tightly under wraps for over two years, the slasher reboot unexpectedly debuted tonight at Hollywood’s ArcLight Cinema, shocking fans, celebrities, and industry professionals who gathered this evening to celebrate at an event coined as a “Hatchet 10th Anniversary Celebration.”

Set a decade after the events of the series’ first three films, VICTOR CROWLEY reunites Hatchet mainstays Kane Hodder (Friday the 13th 7X‘s Jason Voorhees) and Parry Shen (Better Luck Tomorrow) for an all-new, horrifying journey into the haunted, blood-drenched bayou.

In 2007, forty-nine people were brutally torn to pieces in Louisiana’s Honey Island Swamp. Over the past decade, lone survivor Andrew Yong’s claims that local legend Victor Crowley was responsible for the horrific massacre have been met with great controversy, but when a twist of fate puts him back at the scene of the tragedy, Crowley is mistakenly resurrected and Yong must face the bloodthirsty ghost from his past.

VICTOR CROWLEY’s ensemble cast also features Laura Ortiz (2006’s The Hills Have Eyes), Dave Sheridan (Scary Movie), and Brian Quinn (truTV’s “Impractical Jokers”). Writer/director Adam Green proudly returns to the director’s chair of his series that, upon debuting in 2007, was energetically touted as a return to “old school American horror,” and whose maniacal fan-favorite villain quickly secured a place among slasher royalty.

Says Green, “I couldn’t be happier to partner with Dark Sky Films and bring Victor Crowley back to horror fans around the world. Resurrecting the series for its tenth anniversary was our way of saying thank you to everyone in The Hatchet Army and beyond who have supported this series since its inception.

Director Adam Green Teams Up With Megadeth’s Dave Ellefson To Launch Ariescope Records

Director Adam Green Teams Up With Megadeth’s Dave Ellefson To Launch Ariescope Records

EMP LABEL GROUP, the label founded by Megadeth’s DAVID ELLEFSON, has signed a deal with iconic horror director/writer/producer ADAM GREEN (Hatchet, Holliston) to create ARIESCOPE RECORDS, Green’s own label imprint which will be manufactured, marketed, and distributed by EMP. The imprint label will focus on hard rock and metal acts, as well as the scores and soundtracks for Green’s own film and television projects.

The first release for ArieScope Records will be GHOSTS OF SALEM, a special live release from Green’s own band HADDONFIELD, which will be available September 15th on digital, and Friday, October 13th, on limited edition LP.

HADDONFIELD formed in Green’s hometown of Boston in the late 90’s, and became a large regional draw through legendary live performances. Though forced to relegate the band to a side project when his film career took off in the mid 2000’s, Green fully reactivated HADDONFIELD in 2017 after receiving an overwhelming response to two of the band’s songs played during a special live charity broadcast of THE MOVIE CRYPT podcast the previous summer. Those tracks, and the rest of a classic band era live recording will be released this fall as Ghosts of Salem, and HADDONFIELD will perform live the very next night during this October’s annual “Rock And Shock” horror and music festival in Worcester, MA.

Green is a cult icon within the horror genre having written and directed 10 feature films to date including 2010’s Sundance darling FROZEN, 2014’s genre bending and ground breaking DIGGING UP THE MARROW, and the hugely successful HATCHET franchise in which he created the modern day slasher icon “Victor Crowley.” Green is also the creator, writer, director, showrunner, and one of the stars of the popular television sitcom HOLLISTON. After an extended hiatus due to the tragic death of main cast member Dave Brockie (GWAR’s “Oderus Urungus”), HOLLISTON will continue on with its third season next year.

Green’s weekly podcast THE MOVIE CRYPT (which he hosts with fellow HOLLISTON co-star Joe Lynch) has become one of the most popular entertainment podcasts on the internet over the past 4 years. Hailed as one of Entertainment Weekly magazine’s “Top 20 podcasts on the internet” in 2015, THE MOVIE CRYPT has been ranked in iTunes Top 25 “What’s Hot” in TV/Film podcasts every day of the week for the last 2 years.

Established in 1998, Green’s production company ArieScope Pictures has been a leader in genre fare for 2 decades. In addition to producing all of Green’s feature films and television series, ArieScope.com has become a destination site for horror and comedy fans around the world offering over 100 free short films and multiple seasons of original weekly series like “Adam Green’s Scary Sleepover” and “Horrified.”

“I’m honored to partner with EMP for this new musical division of ArieScope Pictures,” says Green. “As a lifelong metal and hard rock fan, I’ve always found ways to bring the music and the artists I love into my various film and television projects but I’ve missed performing music myself in a huge way over these last several years. Starting an ArieScope imprint label, bringing HADDONFIELD back to the forefront, and getting to work with people I admire like David Ellefson and Thom Hazaert is just incredible.”

EMP Operations Manager Thom Hazaert says, “We are huge fans of Adam and his work, and it’s truly an honor to be the musical Robin to his Batman. He is a true music fan, and artist, and that said, music is never far from the pulse of his film projects, Holliston, Hatchet etc. We are extremely excited and look forward to bringing you the fruits of this unholy union.”

Green is currently finishing his first novel and overseeing new issues of both the HATCHET and HOLLISTON comic book series. His 10th feature film will be released in theaters this fall.

Among Friends: Danielle Harris Dishes On Her Directorial Debut And More!

Among Friends: Danielle Harris Dishes On Her Directorial Debut And More!

You know her, you love her and the horror industry wouldn’t be the same without her — she is legendary scream queen Danielle Harris. This brunette bombshell has grown up right before our eyes on television and the silver screen, establishing herself as on of the most dynamic actors in the business. Never afraid to experiment or to follow her keen instincts when it comes to a role, Danielle continues to surprise her fans with each new project. Her latest endeavor is no exception to that rule, as she prepares to unleash the next exciting chapter of her career! In her directorial debut, Harris has enlisted some of her very talented friends. “Among Friends,” written by Alyssa Lobit and produced by Jennifer Blanc-Biehn and Athena Lobit, is a twisted tale of horror focusing on a dinner party gone wrong. Set against an 80s backdrop, the good time takes a dark turn when one in the group hijacks the evening in an attempt to help the others come clean about their secret betrayals against one another–and is willing to cut through the bone in order to expose the truth. Collectively this group of very talented women has decades of experience in the film industry and they are excited to be bringing fans and audiences everywhere a roller coaster ride of fun, intensity and, oh yes… blood. Jason Price of Icon Vs. Icon recently sat down with Danielle Harris to discuss her passion for filmmaking, the challenges involved in creating her first feature film, her upcoming web series and much, much more!

The Directorial Debut of Danielle Harris

Obviously, many of us watched you grow up on TV and in movies. You grew up in the industry. When did you first get the feeling you wanted to be behind the camera?

I think it was just over the last couple of years. I came to a point where I was on set and started thinking, “Why am I not doing this?” I wasn’t getting the scripts that I wanted as an actress. I was handed the opportunity to work with some friends of mine that I wanted to work with. I felt I had a list of people I wanted to work with and all of these fun things I wanted to do but I was just sitting back waiting for them to come my way when I could just go out and make it happen myself! That is really where it came from.

For those unfamiliar with the film you chose for your directorial debut, “Among Friends,” what can you tell us about it from a plot perspective?

I would describe it as “Heathers” meets “Very Bad Things” meets “Clue.” It is all of the things that I love about the horror genre but I have a sense of humor about what I do for a living. I really don’t take it too seriously, so I didn’t want to make another torture porn, slasher movie kinda thing. I just wanted it to be fun! The script that came my way was very different from what we ended up doing. I checked in with Alyssa [Lobit], the writer, after I signed on to it and said, “What do you want to do? What do you really want to do?” In this genre, I sorta have this get out of jail free card to do whatever it is I want to do and know I have the support of the fans. I feel like many first time directors may not want to take that risk because they feel they only have one shot to make it or break it. I didn’t feel like I had that because I already had a support team behind me. That made it a lot easier for me to take risks and do things that were a bit unconventional but still stay within the things that I know work and still do what I really wanted to do.

You didn’t have reservations about taking the leap into a directorial role but it took a while to find the perfect project. What can you tell us about that search?

It kinda found me. I have been reading scripts forever, probably about three years, just trying to find the one. There were a couple along the way which I thought would be cool and I turned them over to my managers and agents. They were cool and had potential but it was a situation where I thought, “This one is cool but it could use some work.” When the script for “Among Friends” came to me, it was more of who was involved with it. I really loved the fact that the antagonist and protagonist were females. All of the characters are a bit stereotypical but at the same time are so different from what the normal horror type characters are while still staying true to the genre. Kimberly McCullough has known Jennifer Blanc for a long time and I have known Alyssa Lobit for years. It got to the point where I said, “Hey! I am going to do this thing. Would you be interested in starting a production company and/or get something going with my girlfriends?” I don’t know if you know the statistics but it is something like only 18% of females are active in the entertainment industry both in front of and behind the camera, which is really devastating to me! There are even fewer female genre directors. That was even more shocking to me because all of the heroines in the horror genre. I think I just wanted to do this because I could take a different approach than a lot of the different men I had been directed by. I also pushed my girls to go a little bit further because they know that I am another girl and I would have their back as far as some sexually graphic stuff. Even though there is no nudity, as far as violent stuff, they could feel safe and protected knowing there is another female there to make sure everything is OK. But back to your original point, the script kinda came to me!

Danielle Harris Hard At Work On The Set Of ‘Among Friends’

Was it difficult to balance the horror elements with the more humorous elements without going too far in either direction?

Actually, I kept wanting to push it! I found that sometimes, the people I was working with would say, “Uh, are you sure that is the way you want to go?” I remember working with Nick, the DP, saying, “Make it raw. Make it like an editorial. We really want it to be like this.” Nick said, “It doesn’t really look like a horror movie!” And I said, “Exactly!” [laughs] That was my point. I really wanted it to be stylized, different and to take on a different feel than what I had seen out there! While I wanted to stay true to what works, I also wanted to cross the line a little bit, have fun with it and break that boundary.

You are friends and have worked alongside with many of the players involved in this project, so you know their strengths as actors. What did you learn from that aspect of this project?

There were lots of surprises! [laughs] As awesome as it can be to work with friends, it can be difficult too because you do already have a relationship. You are dealing with a lot of different personalities and sticking them in a room where it is hot and there is a lot going on, it’s stressful. We shot the whole film in 10 days, so it was very challenging. You know your friends have your back and at other times it is easy for them to tell you when you are pissing them off, as opposed to a hired actor. A hired actor doesn’t have that comfort zone with you, where my friends do have it. As amazing as it can be to work with your friends, it definitely adds a unique challenge.

You also have another balancing act to handle as you make an appearance in the film. What was that experience like for you being an actress and director at the same time?

I do have a very, very, very small part in the movie and I also brought Michael Biehn (Terminator, The Victim) to do a small cameo. We are both in the scene together. Kane Hodder (Jason X, Hatchet) is also in the film and he has a much bigger part than I do. I actually came to set that day and realized, “Oh my God! I am working today!” [laughs] My mind was just not there. I am not sure if I am an actor who can be in front of and behind the camera at the same time. I am not sure yet! Actually, I am creating a web series with Alyssa Lobit. We just started a production company with Alyssa and Athena Lobit and are in the middle of creating a killer web series, which seemed only natural because we had been working so much together. I am going to take a crack at directing myself because I am going to be in it as well. I am going to start small and see how it goes! [laughs] But for my first directorial feature, I didn’t want to put myself in front of the camera for very long, so I was only in a couple of scenes. I did decide to do something but I can’t tell you because it would be a total spoiler! Let’s just say when I screened the movie in Los Angeles a couple of months ago, when I came on screen everyone started cheering, laughing and clapping! I got a really big reaction! I definitely did something in my movie that I wouldn’t have done in anybody else’s! That’s for sure! [laughs]

Danielle Harris: The Future of Horror

Do you view working with a smaller budget, as you did on “Among Friends,” as a blessing or a curse?

It is a little bit of both, I think. Part of my feels like, “Wow! It can only get easier from here!” A small budget can be a big challenge because when things fall apart, you don’t have money to fix it. You have to find other ways to do it and you don’t have any time to do it in, which can be really frustrating! At the same time, being able to pull off what we did with the limited budget is a testament to the friendships I have created along the way in my career. There are people ready and willing to step up and know that doing so will come back to them tenfold when my next movie has a bigger budget. I don’t think that I could ever shoot a film like that on limited funds again. It was hard. We had to go on Kickstarter and IndieGoGo to try and raise money for things like our deliverables for post because we just didn’t have it. It was things like that, having to raise $5,000 or we weren’t going to be able to finish the movie. A lot of movies don’t get made because of situations like that. However, I am lucky to have awesome fans who are willing to step up and help make sure the project happened! That shows me that I have the support from people who want to see me continue to direct and I am going to continue to pursue it!

When should we look for “Among Friends?” I know you have been in the process of seeking distribution.

Yeah! We have some distribution and we are pretty close to closing North America. We have a couple of other countries where our deals are almost done, which is pretty amazing because we really only finished the film before Cannes. Right now, we definitely have one country and two others with deals on the table. Hopefully, North America will close soon too! I think we are really, really close. I just want to put it out and see where the chips fall!

What’s next for you, Danielle? As an actress and as a filmmaker still looking for that next perfect script?

I just wrapped “Hatchet III” about a week and a half ago. I spent almost a month out in the swamps with Victor Crowley and the rest of the gang, getting the shit beat out of me for the lack of better words! [laughs] I am a little beat up and trying to recover from that fast and furious shoot. Right now, I am basically just doing the circuit and trying to do as many film festivals as I can. “Among Friends” is making the rounds as well as a movie that I did with John Jarratt and Casper Van Dien called “Shiver,” which is in quite a few international festivals as well as festivals in the States. “The Victim,” directed by Michael Biehn, is also doing quite a bit! Towards the end of the year, I will start doing the promotional tour for “Hatchet III.” I am trying to focus on all of that right now and I am going to take a little bit of time for vacation and recharge before returning to the web series, which is tentatively called “Pussy Posse.” It has been really fun creating that with Alyssa and creating our own thing. It has really let me find my own style and lets me do what I found out I love to do, which is direct. I actually prefer directing to acting! I think I will be moving more in that direction. I will always be an actor though, I can’t imagine not doing it, ya know?

Seeing you see the film industry from a different perspective than most people, meaning you grew up in it, you continue to act and now you direct, what is your take on the current state of the film industry?

Danielle Harris

I have felt for a while like there is really no middle-class. The film industry has kinda been the same way. It seems you either have these awesome independent films people are making for $50,000 or you have these $1 million budget movies that star the same people over and over again. As far as the horror genre, it is unfortunate because most horror movies are made, the ones that come my way at least, between $150,000 and $600,000 because they know the films will have a huge audience and they are going to sell it and make a lot of money. They don’t need to make a genre movie for $15 million because it doesn’t really make money, unless it is some really big movie. A lot of the audiences that come into see films are going to see films with movie stars. I don’t think a lot of movie stars want to do a “SAW” movie that is going to make a lot of money. The whole business is a little bit tricky right now. The economy is still in the toilet right now, so a lot of people don’t have money to do things like go to the movies. When movies come my way and I see the budget is $100,000, I don’t really want to get involved with that as an actor knowing how hard it is going to be on set and to do what we are supposed to do with no money. It is really difficult and people are doing it all the time. You do it because you love to do it. I just think we haven’t found our place yet and the movies they are making for a lot of money, like the Michael Bay movies and things like that are big and actiony or sci-fi stuff using green screen and lots of CGI, are the result of studios sticking to what they know works because they want to be sure they make their money back. They aren’t willing to take a chance on a film that might not hit. I get it but I am kinda tired of seeing it! I mean, let’s think of something a little bit innovative and see what happens!

I think a lot of people still underestimate the power of social media. How has it impacted you as an actress, director and businesswoman?

It’s amazing! Honestly, it is fascinating to me when I go to a signing or something and I hear people talking about “Among Friends” just from me tweeting about stuff or me interacting with fans. That is one of the reasons I have always done signings because it was my only opportunity to have people get to know me as me. You never know how people will perceive you and that is why I have done so many. Now, with Facebook, which I am admittedly pretty bad about, and Twitter, which I am pretty aggressive about, it’s great. It is a way for people to get to know you and if they are on your side, they are going to support you. I think it is really important to be accessible, so it has absolutely helped me 100%! For example, we are talking about it and you haven’t seen the movie yet. If social media didn’t exist, people wouldn’t be able to be on board with a project like this.

Danielle Harris

What’s the best part of being Danielle Harris these days?

Oh God! Jason, you always end these interviews with some question that makes me say, “Oh God!” [laughs]

Yeah, I know! [laughs] But seriously, I ask because it seems like you are at a really great point in your career, which is giving you a lot of unique opportunities.

There is a lot going on and the best part about it right now is that I feel renewed. I feel like I became an actor because it was sort of chosen for me, even though it seems that is what I am destined to do. I have said this for years but I don’t want people with children to force them into the entertainment industry. I think that is a decision you need to make as an adult. As much as I don’t regret it, people always say to me, “You always say you wanted to do movies!” And I am like, “Dude, I was like seven when I started doing it. I also wanted to be a princess, a doctor, a ballerina and a model!” [laughs] I think that is the best part of being me these days — finally being given an opportunity to choose my own path. A lot of people don’t get to do that. I didn’t go to college, so I just did what I knew I was supposed to do but it wasn’t necessarily what I would have done if I had had a chance to start over. I just did what had already worked for me and there was already a sort of branding thing in place where everything aligned for me and now I can do what truly inspires me! And I have the support of everyone behind me!

That’s a great outlook! Where’s the best place for people to learn more about the film and to follow your adventures online?

They can check out the “Among Friends” Facebook page and on Twitter at twitter.com/Among_Friends. Of course, you can always follow me, @halloweengal, on Twitter. I tweet all kinds of stupid stuff, as you know because you follow me. It’s usually something crazy like pictures of my dog or something ridiculous! [laughs] Any of those three are the places to go for more information.

Thanks for your time, Danielle! We are looking forward to spreading the word!

Awesome! I really appreciate it, as always! Thank you so much!
