A while back I got in the car with all the guys from Scott Benson's amazing project Late Night Work Club - Ghost Stories. When I think Ghost stories I think about the sleazy horror films of my youth like Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Friday the 13th, Evil Dead etc. Generally I am not a big fan of the macabre, but here we made a decision early on to pay homage to this genre. I haven't felt like doing provocateur work like this for a loong time, but I figured that since the theme is ghost stories, we would construct a movie celebrating and referencing these gems from the past - like Freddy visiting your dreams, the wasted youth content of sex and drugs in Friday the 13th, and the 'Tree Scene' from Evil dead etc.
Unfortunately we got booted from the project due to some of the content. It was clear to me from the beginning that it was a possibility, so no bad blood from here. And I can do nothing but respect the shorts the guys and girls have banged out. It is stellar work Indeed.
Go see it!
