Kristen Ruhlin On Her Creative Evolution & Breathing Life Into ‘Welcome To Mercy’

Kristen Ruhlin On Her Creative Evolution & Breathing Life Into ‘Welcome To Mercy’

Actor/Screenwriter Kristen Ruhlin has a very bright future ahead of her.

Sometimes in life, when things aren’t quite living up to your expectations, you have to take matters into your own hands. That’s exactly what actor/screenwriter Kristen Ruhlin did when she dove head first into the creation of her first feature film. On a cross-country flight, the seed of an idea grew into her terrifying occult thriller, “Welcome To Mercy.” Involved in every aspect of the process from start to finish, it was the ultimate learning experience for this up-and-coming storyteller. Most importantly, her experiences serve as proof-positive that good things come to those who wait!

“Welcome To Mercy” tells the tale of a young woman struggling against the unholy forces that possess her. After being stricken with stigmata, single mother Madaline (Kristen Ruhlin) is sent to a remote convent where nothing is what it seems and her friend August (Lily Newmark) is seemingly the only person she can trust. Together, they must confront the demons inside Madaline before she becomes the Antichrist.

Jason Price of Icon Vs. Icon recently caught up with Kristen Ruhlin to get an inside look at the making of the film and what compelled her pour her blood, sweat, and tears into the project. In the interview, she offers an inside look at the creative process, the obstacles she overcame along the way, and the lessons learned in bringing the project from script to screen.

How did you get involved with the arts early on in life and what made you pursue your passion professionally?

I grew up in West Virginia, where my Mom managed a theater company. I was always involved in theater because she was always toting me a long with her to work! It became like a second family to me. In college, I got into acting a lot more seriously and started doing independent films in New York. Eventually, over the course of my career, I was looking for something with a little more gravitas and integrity. I was looking for a role that I could be proud of. So, at one point, I decided to create that role for myself and that’s how the creation of “Welcome To Mercy” came about.

The road to becoming a successful working actor in Hollywood is not an easy one. Was there someone behind the scenes giving you a push during the times you needed it most?

You know, I’ve been married twice. Cat’s out of the bag! [laughs] My first husband actually passed away. He was my best friend since I was 14 years old. Despite everything, we were best friends our whole lives. He was the kind of person who always believed in me and would say, “You’re going to do this one day. You’re going to do it! I believe in you!” He was that person to me.

He was right! You have definitely blazed your own path and it’s definitely something to be proud of! Let’s talk about “Welcome To Mercy.” Where you always a fan of darker material?

I have always enjoyed the genre. One of my favorite films as a kid was “Poltergeist.” I was super young when I first saw it and I thought it was so scary and awesome! Those kind of films were the ones I was drawn to. I have steered away from horror over the past few years as I have two youngins but I still love seeing a good, scary movie from time to time. I love seeing the ones that come and do something different – films like “It Follows” or Lars von Trier’s “Antichrist.” I just love playing with imagery and creeping people out in different ways visually.

How did the idea for “Welcome To Mercy” originally come about?

I basically knocked out the story on a plane ride when I was in my twenties. I had the basic concept down then. I knew that I wanted to play a certain type of female character arc and a certain protagonist — someone who was kind of internally tortured. I was also really interested in stigmata. I’ve always been interested in religion. To me, there is nothing more terrifying than exorcisms because there is such a realness to it. I think there is also something both beautiful and creepy about churches, specifically Catholicism, although there is something creepy and beautiful about every religion. I flew into those and really started exploring those worlds.

This project was a long time in the making. What were the biggest challenges you faced along the way?

It has been a long journey from the time I wrote it to actually doing it. Along the way, the biggest struggles I’ve had was just living a normal life, becoming a mother, becoming a wife, becoming an ex-wife and a single mother. Those were the biggest challenges and propelled me to get the next steps made. I think every filmmaker can probably relate to that. Life can definitely throw you curveballs and get in the way, but I was always confident and relaxed in the back of my mind that this would come to fruition and everything would happen the way it was intended to. When I was in Latvia, there was definitely was a sense of “These roadblocks had to happen. I had to take a pause at year two and year three to get me to this position I’m in now. All of the people involved in Latvia and all of these elements were meant to be here right now.” I’m really happy with the way it turned out!

As the screenwriter, you are the author of this tale. You have also served as the driving force that ultimately brought it to the screen. As you got closer to this film becoming a reality, did you find it difficult to let go of the reigns and allow others into the process?

It was definitely hard, for sure! The director, Tommy Bertelsen, came on board toward the last leg of it. We started the last leg of it in September of 2018 with Tommy and we were in Latvia by December. That was a new person in the mix in a key role in a very short period of time. There was a lot of trust that had to be built in a very short time. I’m definitely someone who definitely has some walls up when it comes to trusting people and letting the reigns go. Tommy and I had some good heart-to-hearts. I had a conversation with him in Latvia, along with one of our executive producers, Serik Kushenov. It was at that point that I just had to let go of my little baby and trust other people. Once I leaned into that trust, it allowed other people to really excel at the things they are passionate about from production design to directing to cinematography. That’s what everyone is there to do, and you can’t do it all by yourself. It’s a team process and we definitely had those challenges, but I finally let go in Latvia! It was a huge learning experience.

‘Welcome To Mercy’ is now available on all digital platforms via IFC Midnight.

I imagine you did quite a bit of research to bring the level of authenticity the film has to the surface.

Yeah, I definitely did a ton of research. We had 3 weeks of prep there and there was a ton of research going on to get into Latvian culture. Everything was methodical right down to the weight of the material used in the nun’s garments. Every little nook and cranny were highly researched!

What where the biggest challenges you faced on set?

The most challenging thing on this set was 100% the weather and the physical demands of it. It was a struggle period, but while being a single mom with two toddlers under 3 years old was something I totally didn’t anticipate! The physicality and exhaustion were something I totally mismanaged! I was in a strange country where we didn’t speak the language, and no one spoke English, which is always challenging. I had a nanny full-time while I was filming but I totally forgot that I didn’t have one when I was off, so I would shoot for 17 hours, come home at 7 AM, be a Mom for 12 hours and then go straight back to the set! I confided in Tommy about it and I was losing my mind! [laughs] He is very method, so he was like, “Yes! You’re going to use that! Yeah you are! Madaline is also exhausted, and she hasn’t slept for days!” [laughs] We totally went there with that and I think, in hindsight, it definitely played out for the best of the film! Like I said, everything happens for a reason! It was very challenging trying to do it all!

As the author of this tale, you have lived with the character you play for a long time now. How has the role evolved over time?

When I first conceptualized Madaline she was a younger version of myself and that is evident in the first draft. Her motives for doing a lot of things and the story that was there was her seeking attention for herself in a curious and narcissistic way, kind of the way all of us do in our early twenties. As I evolved through having a family, becoming a mother and moving into my thirties, Madaline’s character changed, and motivations became different. She had different reasons for doing things and learning about her past to make herself better not just for herself but someone else. That’s gives you a different reason for getting up in the morning. We all change at different stages in our lives, so she different went on a huge roller coaster of character development.

How do you feel you have evolved over the past decade?

Well, in my twenties, I definitely think I was so eager and desperate to please everybody. I wanted to have everyone like me. I wanted to be famous and do work that people saw and would recognize. I feel like I was willing to do any kind of project to make that happen and I didn’t really know how to get there. I knew the kind of roles I wanted to be acknowledged for and the kind of work I wanted to be involved with, but I wanted it so bad that I was less selective. As you grow, and you learn, you discover that you have to believe in yourself a little bit more. You have faith in yourself and in your work. That pivot point happened for me after I had kids. It comes down to the kind of work that I would want them to see me involved with, the stuff that I put out and the things that I go after to create the kind of resume that I want. Things have changed as I’ve entered my thirties. I’m not interested in being famous or having 12 movies under my belt in a year. I’m happy with having one really solid piece that I’m really proud of and getting good remarks on. I want to tell honest, real stories while producing and being part of the things that I want to put out there and want to see. It’s almost like my audience has changed a little.

Kristen Ruhlin as Madaline in ‘Welcome To Mercy.’

You touched on it a little with that answer, but I wanted to dig a bit deeper. What are you looking for in the material you take on at this point in your career? Is there a specific direction you see yourself headed?

I have definitely shifted focus to writing just because it fits so well with my family dynamic right now. Producing is another thing I am focusing on and something I learned a lot about during the process of “Welcome To Mercy.” I love being part of the development! I love being a part of the development meeting and crewing up all the key departments and the way everything comes to fruition. I also love tweaking the script and talking story! I could talk all day about the mythology of stories and coming up with creative ideas. That’s the best part to me. At the same time, I also love acting and I definitely still want to do and pursue that but because I have shifted to such a selective area of it, those roles are very specific. Like I said, I don’t have to have 50 of them a year. The next one I want to do is this Roman one that I’ve been obsessed with since I was twelve. I’m going to put everything into that focus when the time is right and have faith that all the pieces will fall in line as needed.

The journey you are on is an inspiring one. What is the best lesson we can take away from your experience so far?

I have this little video that I took of myself on the last day of filming in Latvia. It was that “If you believe in something, you want something, and you have a dream about it, you should go after it…” kind of moment. Mine started with just a little idea that I wrote down on a napkin while I was on a plane and it manifested. I dreamt about it, wanted it, thought about it and obsessed about it for so long that it finally came true. I worked really hard for it. I think that whether it is 5 days, 5 years or 10 years, if it’s something you want bad enough, it will happen. You just have to give yourself the trajectory and the time to believe that it will!

I don’t know how often you might hear it but congratulations on everything you have achieved. It’s really amazing to see your vision become a reality. The film will be released on November 2nd, 2018. It’s been a long road! What are you doing to celebrate?

Oh my gosh! You know, honestly, the biggest celebration to me is that I get to keep doing what I love doing. I have to pinch myself every day! Right now, I’m in production right now on another film, we are continuing to make movies and I get to wake up every day and write stories and create worlds! That’s all I ever wanted to do since I was a little girl — create worlds and be part of them. That’s how I celebrate by just being able to keep doing it!

I can’t wait to see where this all takes you, Kristen! Keep up the hard work and I know our paths will cross again in the future!

Thanks so much, Jason! I really appreciate it! Talk to you soon!

‘Welcome To Mercy’ will hit theaters and VOD on November 2nd, 2018 via IFC Midnight! Follow the continuing adventures Kristen Ruhlin on social media via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

UNSTOPPABLE: John Hennigan On His Creative Evolution and New Film Projects!

UNSTOPPABLE: John Hennigan On His Creative Evolution and New Film Projects!

John Hennigan, one of most dynamic performers in the industry, continues to push his creative limits.

Born and raised in Southern California, John Hennigan was destined to become a star. Throughout his meteoric rise, he has proved time and time again to be one of most versatile performers in the entertainment business. He has been wrestling professionally since 2002 and has been a shining star in the U.S. and Mexico, where he also has competed for Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide. He is a crossover star, appearing on various TV shows, including “Days of Our Lives,” in addition to numerous film credits, including “Boone: The Bounty Hunter,” which he created, co-wrote and served as executive producer. Hennigan recently tied the knot with Taya Valkyrie (aka Kira Forster-Hennigan) this past June, with many personalities from their wrestling lives attending, including WWE Superstars The Miz, Dolph Ziggler and Zack Ryder. Ironically, Hennigan wasn’t around for much of his wedding planning, as he was instead in Fiji, filming Season 37 of the hit CBS TV show “Survivor,” which kicked off in September.

With each passing year, Hennigan continues expand his resume by taking on challenging projects in a variety of mediums. Whether it’s brining his passion project, ‘Boone: The Bounty Hunter’ to the screen or stepping behind the camera for his upcoming flick, ‘The Iron Sheik Massacre,’ this star-on-the-rise continues to push his creative limits and shine as a storyteller. This Fall, it’s man versus nature when Hennigan teams up with acclaimed actor Stephen Tobolowsky (’Silicon Valley,’ ‘Deadwood’) to play ‘leapfrog’ with mutated amphibians in Ojala Productions’ epic eco-thriller ‘Strange Nature.’ Based on true unsolved outbreaks of wildlife mutations, fall fright-fest the film marks the directorial debut of fx maestro James Ojala (‘Hellboy II: The Golden Army,’ ‘Thor,’ ‘Tron: Legacy,’ ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’) and stars Lisa Sheridan (“Invasion”), Stephen Tobolowsky (Memento), Tiffany Shepis (Victor Crowley), and Carlos Alazraqui (The Funhouse Massacre). 

Jason Price of Icon Vs. Icon recently caught up with Hennigan to discuss his life inside and out of the squared circle, the challenges he has faced along the way, his role in Jim Olala’s ‘Strange Nature’ and what the future holds for him in behind the camera!

You’ve spent the past decade building a tremendous career for yourself. What drew you to professional wrestling as a young man?

I feel like it started with the larger than life characters. When I was a kid, I grew up on pro-wrestling and action movies. I moved to a new place in 6th grade and I was a wrestling fan who watched it all the time. When I got to the new town, as the new kid, pro-wrestling was the first thing that I bonded with kids in my school and neighborhood over. We’d watch wrestling and try to put each other in Boston crabs or sharpshooters in each other’s backyards after we would watch on Saturday or Sunday! [laughs] I feel like when you’re hooked on something like that when you’re a kid, you’re always going to be nostalgic for it and have a soft spot for it. As I grew up, I went to high school and college before starting collegiate wrestling. At one point, I was even going to try to be an Olympic wrestler, but I ended up falling into training for fight choreography in action movies. At one point I had this epiphany that professional wrestling was the thing that had been motivating me to do everything I had been doing in life. That’s when I ended up training and started doing “Tough Enough.”

Who had the biggest impact on your from the worlds of professional wrestling and action movies?

Action movie-wise, when I was a kid it was probably a toss up between Schwarzenegger, Van Damme and Stallone. I got really, really into Jackie Chan when I got into intermediate school. He is definitely my number one movie influence! It made me want to do high school wrestling, flips, kicks and martial arts. When I got to college, that kind of action was the kind of stuff I was going for. With professional wrestling, it’s another example of how your tastes change over time. When I was really young, it was all about The Ultimate Warrior, Hulk Hogan and Macho Man Randy Savage. As I got older, I got into HBK but I never stopped liking Macho Man! [laughs] I also got into some of the ECW stuff with Rey Mysterio and Rob Van Damme, when I was older. It’s tough to pick just one person as my biggest influence. They are all so good!

It takes a lot to make it in the world of professional wrestling. What are the keys to success and longevity?

Patience. Passion. You know that speech that Rocky gives in “Rocky Balboa”? He says, “It’s not about how hard you hit. It’s about how much you can get hit and keep moving forward.” I feel like that’s very true for pro-wrestling. Obviously, it’s a nice analogy because you take bumps and get up in the ring but on you path of getting into and learning the business you hear the word “no” so many times. You have to have this clear vision and belief in yourself. If you don’t have that, eventually your motivation is to wane, you are going to find something else and stop training. If you have that clear vision and belief in yourself, then you can do anything you set your mind to and that’s really what it takes.

Who had the biggest impact on you behind-the-scenes? Did anyone serve as a mentor or give you a push when you needed it most?

So many! Tommy Dreamer has been there as a friend/mentor since I started in Louisville with OVW. I put Joey Mercury in that same category and Al Snow from “Tough Enough.” I also learned so much from Lance Storm when he was training at OVW. The way pro-wrestling works best, in my opinion, is that when you start wrestling a ton, the guys that you are in the ring with teach you more when you are in the ring. When the bell rings then you can learn more there than you can by talking about it, thinking about it or watching stuff on tape or on TV. All of the vets that I was in the ring with were all mentors to me.

That’s a great outlook. Was this work ethic of yours something that was instilled in you early on in life or something you had to work toward?

Wow! Man, this is a crazy interview! [laughs] Both! Growing up, I feel like the way that I validated myself was achievement oriented. When I first started wrestling in high school it was the first thing that I was really good at and I had a lot of early successes. For example, I won the championships the first year in high school and that made me focus, double down and try that much harder. It’s never a really good idea, especially as you get older, to see yourself only on what you’ve accomplished but that is what I did when I was younger. It made me really ambitious and it’s something I have carried with me since I was a kid.

What do you consider some of the biggest obstacles you have faced and overcome along the way?

Wrestling is tough. Sometimes it can get monotonous and you might have doubt. I don’t know if the coin has been turned but it’s kind of like “creator’s guilt” or “artists guilt,” when you reflect on the things that you are doing and ponder things like “Is the story I’m telling currently, or the time I’m spending to tell it, what I should be doing or the best use of my time?” Ruminating on that sometimes is an obstacle for me because the answer to that question is subjective and it changes. Sometimes it’s tricky. I don’t know if that’s the answer you’re looking for. You might be looking for an answer speaking to the physical aspect of the job. I tore my MCL in 2007, had neck surgery in 2011 and just dislocated my elbow three months ago. The first time I’m going to wrestle without my elbow brace is on Sunday at Bound for Glory. It’s hard to come back from injury but I think the mental and emotional obstacles are more difficult for me.

How do you feel you have most evolved over the course of your career, both inside and outside the ring?

At some point in pro-wrestling, you have that Neo moment where you can see the Matrix, so to speak. [laughs] For me, those moments when I know exactly what I’m doing, and everything makes sense, happen sometimes. It’s not like a switch that is flipped on or off, where you constantly know everything. You have to fight to stay relevant, keep everything you are doing fresh and figure out what people want. What people want changes and that’s one of the hardest things about wrestling. If you can figure out what people want, then you pretty much have the answer to everything in life! That idea of keeping yourself fresh and motivated is a big part of it. It’s less about keeping yourself relevant and more about keeping yourself interested in what you are doing and motivated to move forward.

Your arrival in Impact Wrestling is a huge deal for fans. What made this the right move for you at this point in time?

I’ve been all over, and I have worked for most of the companies in the world. When I came to Impact, I felt it was one of the only places with a roster of talented people who I hadn’t worked with that much. Currently, I believe Impact Wrestling is at a really interesting spot. The roster has evolved into a younger, hungry, talented roster. If you look at the comments that people are making when they watch a lot of the Impact Wrestling shows, it feels like something really great is happening at Impact and it’s happening now. That makes me excited to be a part of the company. It’s fun to be a part of an organization that’s evolving and changing into something that people really like!

You recently tied the knot To Taya Valkyrie (aka Kira Forster-Hennigan). Congratulations! Pardon the pun but you two clearly make a terrific tag team. What do you feel that you bring out in each other creatively?

[laughs] That’s a long answer! It’s tough because in this business so people say, “Never date anyone in the business.” When I met Kira, I instantly felt like I was with someone who understood me, my motivations and the business of pro-wrestling. We connected on so many different levels. As far as what we bring out in each other creatively, I think it starts with us understanding and accepting each other. That leads us to double down. She believes in me enough so that I feel like whatever I feel like doing, I just do it and I know she is going to be cool with it. For example, on our honeymoon, we wrote this crazy horror-comedy thing that we shot in our house a few weeks ago. It’s going to take a couple of months to finish it. I’ll just say that it’s crazy and that we destroyed our house. The whole house is covered in fake blood and stuff from the movie. I feel like that’s the kind of thing where both of us said, “Should we do this?” The answer is “Yeah, why not!” If we’re going to make a cool little horror movie, let’s go all the way with it. That’s what we did! I think that’s one of the reasons we love each other so much. We support each other, and we are all in.

I’m excited to see where that project leads. You’ve already established yourself in the film industry. Are there parallels between the worlds of film and professional wrestling?

Movies, pro-wrestling, television and theater are all forms of storytelling. For me, it’s cool to be able to tell stories in each of those different areas. In film, it’s really about storytelling just as much as it is in pro-wrestling. The type of stories you can tell with movies can be a little more complex or intricate because of the medium. It’s fun to think about the different type of tools and ways you can tell a story. It’s definitely something I’m eager to explore more in the future.

When did you come into your own as a storyteller within the realms of wrestling, film and television?

That’s another tough one. There are a ton of moments. I’ve had so many more moments in the world of pro-wrestling than I’ve had in the worlds of film and TV that they seem more profound because they are on a bigger stage! [laughs] For wrestling, there were a couple of tag matches that I had at OVW, when MNM was first clicking, versus Mac Johnson and Seth Skyfire. That was an early moment where I felt like I knew what I was doing and I understand who Johnny Nitro, who I was at the time, really was. I knew what my job was and what the crowd really wanted and what they didn’t want. A similar moment was when we debuted on Smackdown and MNM wrestled Eddie [Guerrero] and Rey [Mysterio]. I also had a moment against CM Punk in 2007 where I felt I made a big jump and I finally understood what it finally meant to be a heel. In 2010, in Baltimore, versus Jeff Hardy was another standout moment. Now, with Impact and Lucha Underground, they continue! I feel like that’s one of the addicting things about professional wrestling. You have these moments and thoughts and when you execute your plan, you get instant feedback. You feel it from the crowd and that lets you know if you’re right or wrong! [laughs] Wrestling fans aren’t afraid to let you know that you’re not right! With movies, it’s weird. Like I said, I feel that wrestling, movies, TV, theater and rock concerts are all about storytelling and conveying emotion. For an actor, in my category, it’s all about figuring out what people want to see from me, what I really like and conveying that emotion. Having that as my base is something that took me a long time to figure out. That’s not to say that if I’m in a movie that I have to be goofy all the time. However, if that is who I am when I start and what’s in the script and story creates circumstances that my character goes through, figuring out that starting point is something that a lot of actors never really figure out. For me, going through the process of “Boone: The Bounty Hunter” was a true learning experience. I worked on that, wrote it and re-wrote it so many times and worked on it with my acting coaches and finally did it on set. That helped me discern my best starting moment that I feel is correct for me. I carried that over to “Strange Nature” as well.

How did “Strange Nature” land on your radar?

The first thing that brought me to the project was Jim Ojala. We met through Seth Skyfire [aka Steve Adkins]. He helped me on a project called “Darkness Descending,” which I was a co-producer of and I wanted to have sweet tats! He was the best practical effects guy that Seth Skyfire knew, so he introduced us. Jim helped with that project. I also wanted to do a thing called “Ghost Puncher” about a guy who punches ghosts and Jim and Seth both came on for that. I just really dig Jim. He is really quirky and smart! [laughs] When I found out he was working on “Strange Nature,” I was excited to be a part of it.

What made you want to be a part of bringing the film to life?

This has been his passion project that he’d been working on for years. He came up with the idea for “Strange Nature” something like 15 years ago, so it’s something that has been marinating in his head for a long time. It really wouldn’t have mattered too much what he wanted to do because I had so much faith in him but it turned out to be even better because the story is based on facts. It’s a fictional tale about mutations in frogs and what would happen if you expanded on that phenomena and what it could mean to society with its political and ecological implications and, what’s most interesting, how it affects people. That’s really what the heart of “Strange Nature” is. Jim is a horror guy, so there is a great horror slant to this thing, which I think is really cool!

What did you bring to this character that wasn’t on the original written page?

Biceps! [laughs] Ya know, I really brought myself to it. I came in with an open mind. I think Jim did a really good job of writing the character with some depth. It wasn’t just a superficial, redneck, small-minded guy. The psyche of the character I play in “Strange Nature” is based on personal experiences. The way that the character deals with things makes sense logically but is also not very nice.

John Hennigan playing Strange Nature’s ringleader, Sam, with Carlos Alazraqui (Greg) and Justen Overlander (Larry) reluctantly backing him up.

What do you look for in the projects you take on at this point in your career?

Depth. With both acting and wrestling, I’m looking to work with talented people who like to create stories that I believe in. As an actor, I’m looking for a multi-layered character who is like a layer cake — delicious, creamy and filling! [laughs] I’m just constantly on the lookout for stuff that is interesting!

Earlier, you mentioned shooting a horror film in your house with you wife. Can you give us insight into this intriguing new project?

It’s called “Iron Sheik Massacre.” It involves the Iron Sheik, who is helping out. Jim Ojala helped to produce and do all the effects for the film as well. The exact idea of it we haven’t really put out there yet. It’s in post and we’re not rushing it. I feel like you get the best results if you take your time with post and we don’t really have a firm deadline. I think “Iron Sheik Massacre” will probably be completed next year, maybe Aprilish, and we plan on submitting it to festivals.

Are you serving as director on the “Iron Sheik Massacre?”

Oh yeah, this is the first thing that I’ve directed in a very long time. It’s the first truly substantial thing I have directed since film school. I’ve directed shorts, skits and online things but this made me realize that directing is not easy.

What is the biggest thing you took away from projects like “Boone: The Bounty Hunter” and “Strange Nature?”

I’ve learned so many things. If you are working with the right people, a lot of the potential problems are already going to be solved. All the jobs on set exist for a reason. Your line producer, first AD, camera op, assistant camera op, digital image technician (DIT), script supervisor are all there for a reason. If you hire or happen to be really good friends with talented people in those categories, you’re going to free yourself as a director or producer to focus on creative stuff and that is way more fun than putting out fires and getting permits! By fires I mean the little things that go wrong like people not being able to find the place or the catering being late — all of those little things that come up with production. The faster you take care of something correctly, the less you have to learn about it later.

What the biggest lesson we can take away from your journey so far?

If you believe and invest in yourself, you’ll never regret it, even if it doesn’t pay off the way you want it to. That’s a good bet. Always bet on yourself!

Thanks so much for taking time out to connect with me today! I can’t wait to see what you have in store for us in the years to come. 

Great talking to you today, Jason! Thank you so much! I hope we talk again soon!

‘Strange Nature’ is available now on DVD and VOD via all digital platforms. Connect with John Hennigan through social media via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

SIN CITY PSYCHO: Pauly Shore Unveils 11-Minute Psychological Thriller!

SIN CITY PSYCHO: Pauly Shore Unveils 11-Minute Psychological Thriller!

Actor Pauly Shore is best known to fans worldwide as a stand-up-comic and a hugely successful comic actor. Now, in a dramatic departure he goes extremely dark in the psychological thriller SIN CITY PSYCHO, an 11-minute short film which he wrote/produced/directed and stars in with Sharon Gardner.

Shore has made the short film available online for FREE on his YouTube Channel.

“I’ve always wanted to play a psychopath, what actor doesn’t? I’ve been known for comedy my entire life, so it was really fun to dig in and do something unexpected. I came up with this premise a while ago; I’ve always loved Dexter, American Psycho, and Silence of the Lambs,” said Shore.

“I thought filming something in Las Vegas regarding an unfaithful spouse made sense because people go to Vegas all the time and always say when they do bad things, ‘whatever happens in Vegas stays in Vegas,’ that’s not the case for my character Donovan, he doesn’t play that shit,” added Shore.

Synopsis: In Sin City Psycho, driven to madness, Donavan (Shore) preys on Sin City’s unfaithful flock by tangling them into a web of torture where broken vows could mean broken bones. Along with his sister Ione, this deranged vigilante justifies the horrors in his wake with the illusions in his head and shows those willing to cheat on their loving spouses that everything that happens in Vegas, slays in Vegas. However, after he lures Tiffany (Gardner) into his deadly web, Donavan finds the next sin to face judgement may just be his very own.

Shore has made the short film as a proof of concept for either a feature-length film, or a television series.

“I also loved writing and directing this short and wanted to make sure the tone stayed real to the scene and the characters. Of course, I would love to do this as a feature, so please tell any of your sweet Thriller producers out there that I’m game,” said Shore.

Scream Factory To Unleash ‘The Critters Collection’ 4 Disc Blu-Ray Set In November!

They’re back and ready to devour your Blu-ray player! Scream Factory proudly presents The Critters Collection in a 4-Blu-ray set on November 27, 2018. The terrifying and tiny menaces are out in full force with this four-film collection packed with enough special features to make any fan’s mouth water! The hit creature franchise finally comes packaged together and on Blu-ray for the first time with this release. Fans can now pre-order on shoutfactory.com and receive two exclusive lithographs featuring the brand-new artwork and its alternative.

In Critters, the terrified Brown family are trapped in a deadly nightmare and must fight for their lives against a litter of extraterrestrial, bloodthirsty monsters. But it’s a losing battle until two intergalactic bounty hunters arrive, determined to blow the creatures off the planet! In Critters 2: The Main Course, some eggs have survived and are popping open, bringing another horde of the little creatures! Brad Brown (Scott Grimes) returns to fight them along with three bounty hunters. Critters 3 stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Josh, a beleaguered Angelino who must lead the fight against the little monsters as they invade an L.A. apartment building. In the final film, Critters 4, a super strain of genetically engineered monsters are designed to take over the universe. This time, Brad Dourif and Angela Bassett must battle the little bloodthirsty hairballs.


It’s no picnic for the Brown family when a lethal litter of carnivorous aliens arrives unannounced at their Kansas farm. Trapped in a deadly nightmare, the terrified Browns fight for their lives against the attacking bloodthirsty monsters. But it’s a losing battle until two intergalactic bounty hunters arrive, determined to blow the hellish creatures off the planet! It’s an alien adventure, full of action and just crawling with Critters!

Critters 2: The Main Course

Is it human? Is it a beast? Whatever it is, IT LIVES AGAIN in this second film in the Critters quadrilogy!

It’s been two years since the fiendish Critters first terrorized the town of Grovers Bend and sent the Brown family packing. But the “boy who called Critter,” Brad Brown (Scott Grimes), is back … and just in time. Critter eggs have been hatching lethal litters, and the bloodthirsty hairballs are eager to partake in their favorite pastime – eating. In no time, the eggs are popping open everywhere – a field full of livestock becomes a gigantic feeding ground, and local residents are disappearing by the mouthful. Fortunately, three bounty hunters from space, Ug, Lee and Charlie, are flying back to eradicate the problem. But can they wipe out the Critters before Grovers Bend is erased from the map? With outstanding special effects, Critters 2 – The Main Course delivers a fine repast of morbid mayhem!

Critters 3

First, they destroyed a farm. Then they destroyed a town. Now they’re ready to do some REAL damage!

Leonardo DiCaprio stars in the third and most outrageous installment of the classic cult tale of the infamous Critters. As the fanged, furious furballs viciously invade an L.A. apartment building and sink their teeth into the low-rent tenants, Josh (DiCaprio) leads the battle to beat back the conniving critters and save the planet. It won’t be an easy job, but he’s the one person the human race must depend on to destroy these terrifying alien hedgehogs once and for all!

Critters 4

They’ve returned home …. to outer space!

The Critters are back in this supercharged sci-fi space adventure! But these are no ordinary Critters – they’re a super strain of genetically engineered mutants designed to take over the universe! This time, they’re hungry to conquer the galaxy, with an appetite for mankind that’s out of this world. Joined by Angela Bassett (Black Panther) and Brad Dourif (Child’s Play), Don Keith Opper and Terrence Mann reprise their popular roles as they battle for survival against the Critters, a nuclear meltdown and the fate of the universe!
