Director Statement

The reason I made this film is because I wanted to take two genres that made me fall in love with film and attempt to give my own spin on it. Growing up, some of the most valuable moments in my choice in pursuing filmmaking were the memoirs of going to the movies with my dad opening night when Marvel had just started making movies and I remember catching every film all the way up to Infinity War with my dad on Thursday nights. Another vivid memory I have is every year gathering with my friends to have a horror film party around the time of Halloween, It was there that I was introduced to so many styles of horror that I absolutely fell in love with the genre, So I wanted to try my hand at making a superhero movie that blends with horror elements to create something new and Unique.
