I have been getting alot of questions about the project, it's title and the tag line so I would like to address some of these questions here.
QUESTION : Why do you feel the story of Sins of Man needs to be made into three movies and not a "one off" movie ?
ANSWER : Originally Sins of Man was going to be a one off movie but when I was writing the script I thought I could make it into a two part franchise and then after I was half way through writing part II I knew I could stretch it to a trilogy and decided that Sins of Man would be a trilogy and only a trilogy because the horror genre was killed by a seemingly endless run of sequels but see a trilogy s different in that everything from the opening of part one all the way through til the end of part III will tell a complete story .
QUESTION : Can you explain the tag line It's About To Get Real ?
ANSWER : It's catchy and to be honest it makes people ask questions which was the intent, all I will say about it is that we are taking a darker approach to the story of this film and when you see the finished project you'll have a better understanding of the tag line .
QUESTION : Why do you use a costume for the killer and not just have someone dressed normal be the killer ? the reason I ask is because you have said you prefer your horror movies to be based in reality .
ANSWER : Brilliant question ! Yes I do prefer my stories to be based in reality but the purpose of the costumed killer isn't based on reality it's based on mystery, the killer wears the Mortis costume not to scare people but to hide their identity. Mortis is covered in black from head to toe so you can't see anything so you the audience can't look at them and say it's this character or that character. If we just had the killer wear street clothes the audience might notice their watch, necklace etc and that would ruin the reveal at the end of the movie .
QUESTION : Having seen Sins of Man : Rise of Mortis I picked up on some of the characters names and places being horror characters, locations writer, directors etc. used in the script will that be continued in Vengeance ? by the way I loved this about the movie .
ANSWER : First Thank you for saying you liked that about the movie that means alot to me :) yes, as I have said a few times I do this to pay respect to those that came before me in the genre and to honor the people who have inspired me in my work, while we are currently working to finalize the script for Sins of Mam III I plan to have characters and places named the same way.
QUESTION : Do you think you will ever make a fourth Sins of Man movie ?
ANSWER : I never say never but it would have to be the start of another trilogy or a remake it wouldn't be Sins of Man IV unless the fans really wanted a part IV then I would do it however the main reason I would like Sins of Man to be a trilogy is because I feel the horror genre was nearly killed forever with the countless series of sequels in the 80's and 90's .
QUESTION : What types of characters will we see in Vengeance ?
ANSWER : Some interesting characters that have a good story to them as well as a continuation of the stories of the returning characters and some things that you didn't expect to see going into Vengeance based on the way Rise of Mortis ended .
QUESTION : How do you decide who the killer is when you're writing ?
ANSWER : It depends on what I'm working with, the story and what the killers ultimate motive is really, it could be the best friend, the nerd, someone that isn't in the movie as another character and is an escaped mental patient, like I said it all depends on how the story plays out in the developmental stages.
QUESTION : What surprises can we expect to see in Vengeance ?
ANSWER : You'll have to wait to see the movie to find out but I will tell you this much, i's about to get real for JJ and her friends !!
