I'm interested in the human condition and having a visceral experience when I'm in a dark movie theater. Genre films have always been the most creative way to give an audience a bit of escapism while subtly delivering messages about social issues, the political climate, and the human condition. The good, the bad, and the horrific.
Thanks for the support!
