Personal Quote:

(About his movie 'Demon Knight): I've always enjoyed films that did a bit of genre-blending and I thought the story for Demon Knight did that perfectly. It was the perfect storm of horror, humor, thrills, had some mystery to it and a lot of emotion so I immediately knew this was going to be a very atypical horror movie to be involved with.
