, the 1989 Canadian horror movie. I wanted to find out more about it so I decided to try and contact its star and co-writer, Barry J. Gillis. Getting in touch with him was more difficult than anticipated but I was finally able to track down the elusive movie maker.
Barry was generous enough to take some time and answer several questions I posed to him and the resulting interview can be read in its entirety at the link below. No matter what you think of the movie, I think you have to admire his tenacity for completing it and getting it released even if it was only direct-to-vhs.
