Private Project


Nurse Lena Simon seems to have found the perfect man in savvy businessman Scotty Sharpe, but when she suspects him of seeing someone else she takes the unusual advice of her best friend Toni and does a voodoo spell on him. The spell transforms him into a loving and attentive partner, but it also triggers memories that Scotty has buried...with terrifying results.

Director Biography - Adom Gierasch

Adam Gierasch has loved the horror genre all his life, and has been creating horror movies (as an actor, writer and now director) for twenty years.
Adam and his writing partner Jace Anderson were mentored early in their careers by legendary horror director Tobe Hooper (Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Poltergeist.) Gierasch co-wrote three scripts for Hooper, including cult favorite The Toolbox Murders. He co-wrote a script for acclaimed horror director/novelist Clive Barker, and collaborated with Italy’s most famous horror director, Dario Argento, on The Mother of Tears. The Mother of Tears is the long- awaited sequel to Argento’s films Suspiria and Inferno.
Gierasch’s directorial debut, Autopsy, starred Robert Patrick (Terminator 2, The Unit) as a crazed doctor willing to go to any length to save his dying wife. The film premiered at London’s Frightfest 2008 to an enthusiastic audience. He followed that up with Night of the Demons, a remake of the 1980s classic, and Fertile Ground, a haunted house tale starring Gale Harold and Leisha Hailey. His last feature was Fractured, a neo-noir/horror mystery starring Callum Blue and Vinnie Jones. Adam also has a segment in the 2015 anthology film Tales of Halloween. He follows this history up with 2023’s Spaghetti.

Director Statement

I was drawn to the unique story of SPAGHETTI as I was immediately reminded of Brian DePalma movies that I love, and I also loved the idea of a predominantly African-American cast. Lena is haunted by surrealistic nightmares like CARRIE is, and then finds out that the man that she’s falling in love with is anything but normal. He has a terrifying set of skills that he can’t even remember, which turn him into a cold-blooded killer. In my approach I utilized the neon color of De Palma’s BODY DOUBLE and the unmotivated light of Dario Argento’s SUSPIRIA, while adding in as much blood as I could to grind it all together and make the perfect bloody, scary, funny stew. For my score I tapped Slasher Dave, the creative force behind the band Acid Witch, to embark on composing for the film. His unique approach pulls from THE EXORCIST (especially “Tubular Bells”) and John Carpenter’s HALLOWEEN. To make the voodoo elements work I had him put in a lot of tribal drums. Finally, we used a real goat for the voodoo ceremony (although of course it left set unharmed.) It was some of the most fun directing I’ve had in a long time, and probably the nicest, coolest cast I’ve ever worked with.
