Director Jack Perez (pictured) got in touch with an update on SOME GUY WHO KILLS PEOPLE, a mix of serial-killer horror and dark humor that he recently wrapped, and passed on an exclusive on-set photo you can see after the jump. The movie stars Kevin Corrigan as Ken, a bullied guy who turns from suicidal tendencies to the homicidal kind.
“Usually I don’t laugh too much on set; I’m too busy focusing on shooting everything we need in what little time we have,” Perez tells Fango. “But on this picture there was a lot of laughter, especially considering all the blood splashing about. [Co-stars] Barry Bostwick and Karen Black were always cracking up the crew; Kevin Corrigan would kill me with impromptu lines from TAXI DRIVER and ROCKY II, and Lucy Davis would make me smile daily. Then again, the picture is this uniquely bizarre balance of horror and comedy, so it sorta makes sense.” Black plays Ken’s mother, SHAUN OF THE DEAD’s Davis is his would-be girlfriend and Bostwick is a sheriff tracking him, with DARK WATER/AVPR child actress Ariel Gade and KIDS’ Leo Fitzpatrick co-starring; Ryan A. Levin scripted the movie, and John Landis served as executive producer.
“Making the film was grueling and euphoric simultaneously,” Perez continues. “We were under the gun timewise, but working from Ryan’s terrific script and having a dream cast made the shoot the most enjoyable of my career. I also got the chance to implement some old-school in-camera special effects, which I honed on TV’s HERCULES and XENA and used recently in MEGA SHARK VS GIANT OCTOPUS for the decapitated-whale sequence. I won’t say much now, but one bit involves a specific severed body part that’s still very much alive—more on that later. We’re now close to a picture lock and about to jump into sound. Juniper Post in Burbank, a first-rate mixing facility favored by James Cameron and Gale Anne Hurd, saw some footage the other day and really wants to become involved, so we’re off to a good start.”
