Director Statement

The horror films I write reflect the world I see. 'Devils' is no different.

The best art, to me, has a two-toned system to it. Comedy with horror, romance with tragedy. There is always a yin to a yang. We’re seeing that dichotomy in real-time, in cities across the country. People are pouring into the cities, excited about the hustle and flow of the once-forgotten metropolis. This is a welcomed sign for local commerce, and beyond.

However, it’s a ticking time bomb for those who cannot speak up for themselves.

Rent is skyrocketing. Small businesses are struggling. Gentrification is literally ripping through neighborhoods that have stood for nearly a hundred years. Any rational person can understand this is a problem, but we also enjoy spending time Downtown. It’s hard to have one without the other. So, what happens to those who are forgotten?

'Devils' seeks to answer that question, on a small, specific, scale. A soul of a woman, losing her house like she lost her child all those years ago. How would she respond? With malice? Contempt? I’m not so sure. But I do know one thing; she would be most unwelcoming to someone, an intruder, taking the house from under her. Not without a fight.
