"Evil Film" came as a bi-product of the film that John Morgan originally set out to make for his Freshman project. "Drones" was meant to star his brother, but had Shane Sheehy on stand-by for the lead. When John ran into several camera malfunctions while using the school's 16mm Bolex cameras, he realized he couldn't afford to re-shoot any of the footage he lost, and scrapped the idea entirely. About a month in the works, John cut his budget in half from $1200 to $600 with a screenplay called "Evil Film" which was meant to be a parody of the ordeal. John even managed to use his damaged footage as a plot device.

Shane had cut his hair for the lead role in "Drones", but came to realize that he mildly resembled Bruce Campbell in the of Ash. See more
