Writer/director Anthony Falcon gave Fango an update on 99 PIECES, his psychological horror movie that’s currently in postproduction. A MySpace page is now up, and features a teaser trailer, photos from the set, a character montage and a blog “written” by the protagonist—a man (played by Falcon himself) forced to board himself in his own house for 40 days to solve a life-or-death puzzle. The filmmaker notes that his intention was to create as realistic a chiller as possible. “I rarely see a horror film where I can relate to the situation,” he says. “I don’t see them as something that could happen to me. 99 PIECES is a story that could happen to anybody, because it’s a suburban situation with a mid-20s couple on the rocks. That could be any audience member. It’s a film about lies and, literally, puzzles, that make us who we are.”
Falcon shot the movie in his own house, which wound up virtually destroyed by the end of the shoot, which actually lasted 40 days. “The greatest thing about TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE was it looked like it could be real footage, and that’s what I want to accomplish with 99 PIECES,” Falcon says. “Very much a documentary film-like style of a man and his wife in a horrific situation. This is impossible to accomplish with name actors and a full-size crew, but in a real house with real people it works.” You can also check out the official website of Falcon Productions for more info.
