My Inner Demon: A Geraldson Tale

Despite a bitter depression over the poor reception of his debut film, “Murder Box”, in September of 2020, filmmaker/comedian Gerald Varga, aka "Gerry Geraldson", began work on a new creative endeavor.

In November of 2020, Gerald Varga, his roommate, actor David Quast, and Gerald’s long-time collaborator, Darren Andrichuk, were all reported missing. Evidence at the residence shared by Varga and Quast seemed to suggest foul play, though no bodies were ever recovered.

In the spring of 2021, an anonymous colleague of Gerald Varga’s received a package containing all the raw footage for “My Inner Demon: A Geraldson Tale” along with extensive notes detailing how it was to be cut.

The film you are about to see comprises the chief piece of evidence in this ongoing investigation and offers the only clues as to what really happened to Gerald Varga, David Quast, and Darren Andrichuk.

Director Biography - Gerald Varga

This is the 2nd feature film I've directed, the first being Murder Box (2018) and I'm currently the executive producer and director of photography of a documentary called 'Much Ado About Nothing: The Legend of Spectral Theatre Society'.

I've always been a huge horror fan and adore pretty much all types of horror, be it supernatural, slasher, psychological or found footage. Some of my favorite horror movies are films that broke ground on a very low budget, films such as Evil Dead, Halloween, Re-Animator and The Blair Witch Project are probably my biggest influences.

Over the years I've had my hand in many theatrical plays, acted in film and toured as a stand up comedian.

I’m thrilled with the reception so far for My Inner Demon: A Geraldson Tale. We’ve won multiple awards and just won the Founders Award at the Unnamed Footage Festival, one of the worlds top 100 horror festivals.

Director Statement

In 2018 I was diagnosed with skin cancer (for the 2nd time). The first time, the doctor simply scooped it out the end of my nose leaving only a minor indentation. The type of cancer is called basil cell carcinoma and I was told the prognosis is very good and not life threatening. Because it had returned my doctor wanted me to go through a procedure called Moh's surgury, a procedure I was only familiar with from reading about famous actor Hugh Jackman having gone through it on more than a few occasions. I had heard it wasn't overly destructive and it would likely rid me of my problem, at least in the area where it appeared. The surgury was scheduled, the wait was almost 8 months. When the day finally came and all was said and done, the cancer had grown significantly and the doctor removed about a centimeter from the end of my nose, basically amputating the tip. When I took the bandages off and had the stitches removed I was absolutely mortified. The skin graft used to replace the end of my nose didn't match in texture at all and the site of the graft was sunken in. No amount of make up could hide this and believe me when I say I spent hundreds of dollars trying.

A few weeks after the surgery I went to San Francisco's Unnamed Footage Festival to be there for the world premiere of my first feature film, Murder Box. I was so self conscious I found myself telling strangers in mid conversation things like, "Yeah, you probably noticed my nose. Yeah, I had surgery recently". I was worried people would think I was in a fight or...well....there was all kinds of things I thought they could have thought (Non of them being rational).

There were a bunch of surgeries afterwards to lessen the scaring and the results were underwhelming, but I was determined to keep going as a filmmaker. 'My Inner Demon: A Geraldson Tale' is a metaphor for how I felt going through this ordeal.

I had so much fun making this with my co-star, co-writer, and co-producer Darren Andrichuk and everyone that played a role in the cast and production. It was one of the best experiences of my entire life. And as for my nose, well, I barely even notice it these days. I feel great! Sometimes you just need to cast out those inner demons and remember that people don't care all that much about what you look like. Most people are more interested in who you are.
