KAY DISCUSSES BOOGEYMEN
Sam Raimi and Robert Tapert?s ?Boogeymen? is currently filming in New Zealand, and The Herald Sun were offered a behind the scenes squiz. They caught up with Director Stephan Kay, where they?re currently shooting in an Auckland warehouse. ?It?s a chance to do something odd?, he says. ?Horror is a director-oriented medium, because your responsibility is to fuck it up a little, and I like that. I?m into creating a creepy tone and making it psychological, rather than setting up a scenario and jumping something right out at you?.
Kay says the film?s title will be probably be changed from ?Boogeymen?. In it, Barry Watson plays a man who returns to his childhood home after the death of his mother. Once there, he must confront the terrifying visions that have haunted him all his life. Boogeymen is actor Watson?s first film since beating Hodgkin?s disease.
Says Watson, ?It?s quite a challenge for me, but I?ve been ready to take on something like this. I?ve been joking around with Stephen going ?I know I?m carrying this movie, I?m in every scene, but if it doesn?t go well I?m blaming you??.
The film co-stars Emily Deschanel, Skye McCole Bartusiak and Lucy Lawless, who plays Watson?s mother in the film.
?She?s the drug-addled mother who gave up custody of her son and set him up for a life of psychosis and bitterness?, Lawless says. ?That was attractive to me, to play the antithesis of what I try to be in my real life. And she also comes back to haunt her son?.
