In-joke: Tara Pratt, who plays Dr. Denise Hanson in "Food for the Gods," was the first actor cast in a role written specifically for her by H. Scott Hughes. "Denise Hanson" is a character loosely connected to a previous film written by Hughes, a Hitchcock-style thriller titled "Crazy Old Woman" (directed by FFTG producer Joe Fang). That film also featured a family named Hanson. An early draft of "Food for the Gods" (set in 2057) suggested that Denise Hanson was a granddaughter of the Hansons portrayed in the previous film set in present day. Although the final film makes no direct reference to Denise Hanson's ancestry, her fate remains strikingly similar to her likely forbearers. Director H. Scott Hughes has referred to this as the Hanson Family Curse. See more »

A man who can kill with a beam of light, and fly across Heaven as did the Bird Gods who seeded us.
