Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

(On Demonic Toys) Simple. Charlie Band said that if I wrote a film for Full Moon I could direct one. I wrote the film in 8 days based on a poster Charlie had previously designed, then decided I was insane to think I could've busted my ass on such a ridiculous directorial debut I think Charlie was going to give me 18 days to direct the thing. A sane move, I think. See more »
