I knew I wanted to make a movie but couldn't make that movie so I went back to the desk and after watching John Carpenter's Halloween and Scream back to back one night I started thinking about everything I love about these movies and started working out details of a story, thought about characters, the kills and the killer.
I knew I could write horror because of the script for Wicked Carnival so I took alot of the elements of that story and reworked them into the script for Sins of Man. About half way through the writing of SoM I started thinking about how I could make a sequel so while I was writing 8-10 hours a day I was making notes for Part II. I finished SoM in about a week and started writing SoM II the same day and as I started working out the kills and the new characters I started to think how I could wrap the story up in a trilogy so as I started writing SoM II I started writing notes for SoM III and I worked on SoM II and III at the same time and in less then 30 days I finished all THREE Sins of Man Scripts.
It was at that moment that I KNEW I wanted to make Sins of Man into a movie and actually take the leap of faith in my abilities to see if I could make a movie.
Which brings me to my monster movie and how this all came about, I decided early in the pre production of Sins of Man : Rise of Mortis that I wanted to focus on Horror / Slasher movies atleast early in my career because it's something that I know and something I'm passionate about. I also like Monster movies and they of course are their own sub genre of horror. I have written different genres of scripts Romance, action, Horror, when I was learning to write scripts but nothing clicked for me like horror did. Here is the story behind my Monster Movie.
I was watching Jeepers Creepers last week and decided that I wanted to work on a Monster movie of my own, I had written some basic notes and a rough outline about a year ago and I went to get the notes and they were gone. So over the weekend I decided to start working on the Monster Movie and thought out what I want to monster to look like, what abilities I want him to have, who the characters of the story will be so now I need to decide what the world is going to be like in this movie.
As I have stated before I don't want to put this movie or my monster in a world where chemical testing, nuclear testing created this monster, I want to create an old school monster that wasn't created by man's mistakes. I also don't want my monster to be a Cloverfield or Godzilla type of monster, there is nothing wrong with those monsters they just don't fit into what I'm trying to do here.
I know that I want my monster to either have a legend behind it or for it to simply just show up and start killing people. So I'm in VERY early development of this story and script but I have it penciled into my movies in 2016 after we wrap Sins of Man II. Wicked Carnival Productions has 5 movies in development. Am I crazy? Talented? or simply Crazy Talented ?
STAY TUNED !!!
