Director Statement

This film really just came about after a night at the movies. We where cycling back home after having just seen (and loved) "Evil Dead Rise" The person I was with loudly proclaimed you couldn't possibly do anything close to what that movie did without an enormous budget and very talented cast and crew. I said; "Bet you I can do it for 50 bucks." And so the challenge was set. More friends got on board and before we knew it we had our own little private horror film festival. We each made something with a budget of 50 euro's and this is how mine turned out. I'm very proud of it. And very thankful to everyone involved. Even though this was a very small production with only four people, myself included, and just three hours to shoot, we pulled it off.
This is why I love filmmaking. The fun, bare bones productions and stories where you have to improvise to survive and everyone really hits their groove. That happend here, and I love it.
