Vitals Interview Series Part 5: Director Marc Morgenstern

21 March 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Vitals is a new claustrophobic horror movie from director Mark Morgenstern. The film stars Christopher Showerman as Richard Carsen, a man who’s trying save his on-the-rocks marriage by taking his wife on vacation to India. Unfortunately, he winds up on ice and about to be harvested for his organs.

Morgenstern recently directed a documentary on the effects of infidelity in the electronic age. It’s called Affairs Across America: The Ashley Madison Story and is centered around the multimillionaire internet guru who started the infamous non-singles dating website with the slogan: “Life is short. Have an affair.”

Perhaps that was the impetus for making his lead character/victim in Vitals a cheating husband. We asked. Read on to find out what Morgenstern said.

Dread Central: So, Morgenstern… any relation to Rhoda? I’m sure you never heard that before; I just thought I'd throw out that little brilliant, totally unique joke of mine. »

Vitals Interview Series Part 4: Kalex Reno

20 March 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Vitals tells the harrowing tale of a man (Christopher Showerman) who is kidnapped while on vacation in India. He wakes up in an abandoned motel room in a tub of ice with a kidney missing. Little does he know, it’s his heart his captors want next...

And it's only a matter of time before he discovers his wife (Charlene Amoia) in the adjacent room waiting to be the next victim to the organ-harvesting goons. Having taken the vacation to work on their failing marriage, the couple must now set their differences aside and use each other's intellects and skills to escape before their captors return.

We sat down with Vitals producer on set one day, midway through shooting, to see what was up.

Dread Central: So, you’re the producer. What does that mean, exactly, on this set? Seems to me like you’re doing a little bit of everything! »

Vitals Interview Series Part 3: Christopher Showerman

19 March 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Although Christopher Showerman is a very fit actor (having swung from a vine wearing only a loincloth and muscles in the George of the Jungle sequel, to mention just one rather physical role), he spends most of his time in the new horror movie Vitals unconscious, semi-conscious, and about to be knocked unconscious.

He plays Richard Carson, a man who’s taken his wife on vacation to India in hopes of fixing their severed marriage… unfortunately, it’s he who is severed when he runs afoul of some nasty organ-snatchers who kidnap him and start a’cutting.

Dread Central: How’d you first hear about this role?

Christopher Showerman: They sent me the script when I was on vacation in another state, and it showed up on my phone.

DC: It would have been better if it was in another country. Next time, adjust your story. Like, “Yes, I »

Vitals Interview Series Part 2: Sachin Mehta

18 March 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

So, the Pope and a Cardinal are sitting together on a cross-country flight. The Pope is doing a crossword puzzle. He turns to the Cardinal and asks, “Do you know a four-letter word for ‘woman’ that ends in U-n-t?” The Cardinal unhesitatingly says, “Aunt.” The Pope blinks and replies, “Oh yes, of course. Do you have an eraser?”

While you may think that hoary old joke has nothing to do with horror, there actually is a connection – you see, the villain in the upcoming horror film Vitals loves crossword puzzles and he’s got a wicked, skewed sense of humor.

Kaliya, the brains behind the body-plundering organ-snatching ring of criminals, is played by Sachin Mehta. Mehta was in character dealing with uppity henchmen, an unconscious victim, and doing a crossword puzzle just before he sat down to talk with us. Here’s what he had to say.

Vitals Interview Series Part 1: Charlene Amoia

17 March 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Charlene Amoia, who’s now famous for being “the Mother” on the ever-popular TV sitcom "How I Met Your Mother," had only appeared in an episode or two before we caught up with her on the set of the gory new organ-theft thriller, Vitals.

Far from the cushy network TV gig, she spends her days covered in fake bruises and blood, sequestered in a remote independent studio in the San Fernando Valley. In Vitals, Amoia plays Dr. Jane Carson, a woman whose medical degree gets her nowhere after her husband is kidnapped and surgically plundered for his kidneys right before her eyes. Still, the knowledge does come in handy – read on, to find out what she has to say about that.

Dread Central: So, what sort of doctor do you play in this film?

Charlene Amoia: I’m not sure, because only part that that comes into play is »
