Let me start off and saying that I LOVE the classic Horror / Slasher films and this isn't an attack on them or the fans that love them because Yes I'm an indy film maker but I'm a FAN just like all of you .
There seems to be a disconnect between Hollywood and fans, what I mean by this is fans want NEW FRESH films and characters that they can get behind while Hollywood gives us remakes/reboots and reimaginings of classic Slashers as Halloween, Friday The 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street.
Why is that ? Because we eat it up like candy! You can complain all you want about the remakes of the classics but you paid your money to see them, didn't you ? The remakes for better or worse have been the most successful films (Global box office) in each franchise, money is the ONLY thing Hollywood cares about, right ? What can we do about it you ask ? STOP giving your money to Hollywood and put your money into indy films and film makers .
My film Sins of Man : Rise of Mortis is struggling to get funding from Horror fans around the world via Indiegogo http://igg.me/at/SoMRoM While Hollywood is planning a Friday the 13th Reboot A Nightmare on Elm Street Reboot and a stand alone Halloween film.
WE can say "Enough with the reboots" all we want yet we will all go see the films because in a way it brings us back to the films we loved and continue to love, I love the classic films I watch them over and over again because I learn from them. Admittedly I get alot of ideas for my trilogy from these films.
The way to change the culture in Hollywood is to make them change their business plan, if the reboots / remakes tank at the box office they will be FORCED to create new movies, characters and baddies for us to watch, right ?
SUPPORT Indy Film makers who CARE what fans like us want, I care about what fans want in movies. I respond to EVERY E-Mail, Facebook message, comment, Tweet and DM personally I respect all fans opinions because I'm a fan just like you and I think that is one of the issues with Hollywood and fans. Hollywood cares about Money not fans. I can't speak for ALL Indy Film Makers but personally Money isn't my MAIN goal in making the Sins of Man Trilogy, I want to GIVE fans a FREASH NEW movie that they can get behind and enjoy and hell if you wanna get on your computer and trash them movie feel free I also want to leave my mark on the genre that shaped me not only as a writer / film maker but as a person.
