Director Statement

I'm the writer/director of "The Outwaters" and I'm excited to share this movie with the world. It was filmed in the dark and dust and along the sand-swept highways of the Mojave. I'm proud of what our cast and crew accomplished together and will look back on this shoot as one of the best times of my life. It’s been a longtime dream to make a “scary movie”.

I hesitate to say much about the film itself, so I'll just say this: if I’ve done my job well, it should raise hairs and evoke chills, even from die-hard horror fans. I aimed for a naturalistic, slow-burn experience that will take its audience to a place they've never been, and then beyond. I aimed for something lovely, dark and deep.

Scary movies, of course, are best viewed in the dark, so turn off the lights, make some popcorn and plunge beneath "The Outwaters". We invite you on a unique, otherworldly voyage into chaos.
