Lucien Eisenach

Lucien: "The jealousy rose up within me".

Conducted by Phil Davies Brown
July 1st, 2005

Lucien Eisenach may appear to be all dark and mysterious, but behind the dark persona lies a very funny and intelligent human being. I can tell that Lucien must be a great actor just by talking to him, as you would never get the impression that this mild mannered man could be capable of murder, mayhem, torture and "coat hanger abortions". Read on for the scoop on Lucien's latest projects.

When did you first decide that acting/filmmaking was what you wanted to do?
When I was attending college for pharmacy in 1995 and a friend was leaving to attend film school; the jealousy rose up within me and I realized that I should be out there in the world making movies in some form or another.

Did you do any formal training?
Absolutely not! I read up on a lot of film schools and programs and talked to people who had attended schools for filmmaking and realized that it just wasn't for me. I wanted to just get out there and learn from experience....making my own mistakes that could haunt me for the rest of my life.

How did you go about getting into the industry?
I actually answered an ad looking for actors on a local message board online. That led me to get the role of Burke in "Malefic". While on the set of "Malefic", I felt that making a movie was something that I could actually do; I started saving money for a camera (all that money saved from skipping out on film school) and started writing "Fetalboy Goes to Hell"!

I first saw you in 'Psycho Santa'. How did you become involved with the project?
Psycho Santa came about by hearing that Peter Keir was working on the project close to my home and when I met Peter, we just hit it off. The movie turned out quite differently than it was written because of many complications, but I was always hanging around trying to help out, so that left me playing four different parts in that movie: Chris, 2 Santas, and the thief.

Lucien: "Wait, that wasn't him
either....Steve who???".

You have worked on most (if not all) of Steve Sessions films. How did the two of you meet?
Well, it was a beautiful summer day on the gulf coast and I decided to take a leisurely stroll along the beach. The sky was breathtaking! I turned up the volume on my headphones and began to jog along the water. It was exhilarating. I looked to the sky, took a deep breath, and ran as fast as I could, sand spraying behind my heels. Just then a large piece of broken glass sprang from within the sand and thrust itself through the bottom of my foot tearing through to the top, like a drowning man catching his first breath after wrestling free from the currents. I fell to the sand in extreme pain, howling before I passed out. I awoke to the warm moist lips of a bearded man pressed against my own. This person was giving me CPR. This person was saving my life. This person was the infamous Steve Sessions! Wait...no...that was someone else. Steve Sessions was the one who posted the ad online for hot young actors...that led to quite an interesting casting couch audition!!! Wait, that wasn't him either....Steve who???

You must get on well to keep working together so often. Which of Steve's qualities make him most appealing to work with?
Steve and I have common views on most films, some music, and mainly society. I understand how he works. I can analyze his thoughts and anticipate what is necessary to make these movies work. And I am willing to do just about anything when it comes to filming...basically, I am available and I have little shame. I think that allows him the ability to cast me in many unfavorable roles which he knows I will gladly take. Steve is a very kind man and I allow him to exploit me without complaining. It allows us a quite splendid working relationship.

Which of your roles have you enjoyed the most so far?
I loved the role of the Spree Killer in "Dead Clowns"! It gave me the chance to be a part of the most professional movie we've done yet, allowed me to have some decent action scenes, and be the tough guy. It turned out to be a classy movie with great zombies that reminded me of the feeling emitted from 80's horror movies. And I’d have to say that I adore playing the role of zombies. It is a great release to get behind the zombie masks and lose myself in the moment. I got to play the role of the zombie that devoured Eric Spudic's innards in the movie. That there is an honor most can never realize.

Did you always want to make horror movies or did you just stumble into it?
Horror is definitely my preferred genre. I tend to sway more toward comedic horror in my writing, but anything with gore, suspense, or otherwise demented subject matter is what I am drawn toward.

Lucien: "It combines comedy, gore, and
downright creepiness".

Are you a big fan of the horror genre and if so, what are some of your favourite horror movies?
Dellamorte Dellamore, Dead Alive, Suspiria, Phantasm, Evil Dead, Friday the 13th part 6, Basket Case, and Female Trouble (if you could consider that horror).

You directed 'Fetal Boy Goes to Hell' what can you tell us about the project?
"Fetalboy Goes to Hell!" was a 3 three year learning process that taught me everything I needed to know to make a movie successfully...though I haven't followed those teachings as closely as I should have since then. It is the story of a girl who is impregnated by Satan, gives herself a "coat hanger abortion", and the fetus lives, joins the circus, and goes on a killing spree until he finds his father! Great stuff. It’s a DV feature featuring Eric Spudic, Count Smokula, Lilith Stabs, myself, and a bunch of newcomers. It combines comedy, gore, and downright creepiness into one mess of b-movie bliss.

I heard a rumour that you have been working on a sequel to 'Psycho Santa'. Can you tell us anything about that yet?
"Psycho Santa 2" is completely filmed and is in the editing process. It follows the journey of Josh from the original movie as he comes to find that Psycho Santa is still alive and is now teaching his son to follow in his footsteps, killing in the name of Christmas! It stars Eric Spudic, Kimberly Lynn Cole, and Denman Powers. It really captures the feeling of Christmas...in the south...filled with murder and mayhem!

You are currently working on 'Sea Creatures from Outer Space' what can you tell us about the project and it's status?
"Sea Creatures from Outer Space" is a spoof of old sci-fi movies. It is a black and white sci-fi send up composed of bad dialogue, bad editing, and bad directing; I found it only fitting of my talents. Of course I couldn't leave things alone, so I threw in my own brand of silly humor, adding an outer space Diva, a talking ape, and an answering machine! It features performances by Denman Powers and Luc Bernier. It should be a lot of fun! Filming begins in June 2005.

What else have you been working on lately?
I have been in two short films directed by Luc Bernier, "Obsession" and "Seek". I am also editing "Obsession". Still building sets and finalizing the shooting schedules for "Sea Creatures from Outer Space". And editing "Psycho Santa 2" footage when possible.

What can we expect to see from you in the coming months?
I will be acting in "Wolfika", the new movie from Steve Sessions!

"Thank you ever so much for taking part in this interview Lucien.
And we wish you the very best of luck in the future."

Don't fall behind, make sure you get help
