Describe the room where you are
answering these interview questions?
I am actually outside
on the balcony of my apartment on the upper west
side of Manhattan. No Blood and guts
Aside from the cold barely cooked left over steak
from last night that I am continuing to gnaw on
yet this morning.
Yum! First off I want to hear about
your role as Nick in 'The Shrieking'. What
kind of guy is Nick and how different is he from
For girls that like frat
Nick is the kind of guy that they want
to meet. He is sarcastic, bold and tough on the
outside, but he actually has a heart. Nick means
well and has good intentions but at the same time
he has an image to uphold. Logan on the other
(Im wondering what is safe
really, I have nothing to
hide, except the fact that I am a huge dork, but
Im just a fun loving guy, usually cracking
jokes and trying to help everyone enjoy
I've heard the movie described as a
cross between 'The Legend of Boggy Creek'
and 'The Hills Have Eyes' ---
would you add anything else into the 'Shrieking'
think thats a pretty accurate description.
But you know, one of the unique things about the
Shrieking is that director Shawn Hunt
went by the motto less is more.
Shawn was brilliant in trying to revert to more
of an unseen terror strategy for the duration
filming. In that way I see similarities to the
original Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
I want to hear your take on the
Bigfoot legend --- is Bigfoot real or a Big
Who knows? I
believe that anything is possible, so if an
animal like that has been smart enough to stay
hidden from the human race for so long
power to them. Either way though, youll
never hear me say that something is impossible.
How did you initially hook up with
Tony Urban and Shawn Hunt and the Funhouse/Crazy
Ralph folk and become a Splat Pack member?
I originally hooked up with Tony
for Hunting Season, my first horror
film experience. I never really watched horror
films or had any interest in them until Tony
Urban opened my eyes to the insane amounts of fun
that it is. I actually filmed my audition for
The Shrieking with fellow Splat Pack
member Nathan Faudre, during production of
Hunting Season. I guess we just have
Speaking of your work as Eli in the
Funhouse/CGF horror/suspense flick 'Hunting
Season'. What is your predominant
memory of that film shoot?
Season was my first horror experience. The
entire shoot was a blast! Really I think there
are two things from the shoot that really stick
out in my head. 1- Eli was such and A** Hole
character, I kind of instinctively fell into the
zone of method acting. I turned into a complete
dick for about a week and a half. 2
Everyone on the shoot will remember Logan,
AKA Monkey Monster, climbing up everything in
sight. I was climbing up a tree and one of the
branches broke out from under my feet. I fell
straight down, not grazing a branch on the way,
into a giant bush. In the eyes of the onlookers,
the branch broke; I fell and then apparently just
disappeared into a sea of shrubs. I guess it was
So do you think the people that
knew you when you were a kid are completely
shocked or not surprised at all to see you are
making horror films?
think that most of the people who knew me when I
was younger find the fact that Im doing
horror movies about as amusing as I do. Its
a little weird though considering I also do
Oftentimes you hear
about thespians in horror movies having
to do all sorts of difficult stunts and
disgusting things. Has that been your
experience? If so what is the most
frightening and/or disgusting thing you have ever
had to do in a film? And have you ever
refused to do something for the camera?
the world of independent films, horror, comedy,
drama, and anything else a true actor/actress
will go the extra mile no matter what the
situation is, be it helping carry equipment,
holding light reflectors, setting up or breaking
down the set, whatever it is, we do it for the
love of our job. I have always thought this is a
great way to decipher the Drama Queens
who want to be famous from the people who
really love what they do. I have never refused to
do anything on screen and I most likely never
will. In fact I am one of those crazy guys who
will do anything, to make the film look better
even if I may be putting myself at risk. I do
things that even stunt guys wont do. Like
ride off a 60-foot cliff on the front of a
four-wheeler in a Bigfoot suite into a river.
(Not The Shrieking)
category of horror connoisseur do you fit
in Logan - ghosts, zombies, werewolves,
vampires, aliens, creatures, psychos, witches,
dentists, mimes, telemarketers...and why?
Really I like
all of them. I just have a huge fascination for
And for blowing things up with
guns, haha. All categories of horror have their
own really cool individual characteristics.
Personally I was a huge fan of The
X-Files and the new series
Supernatural. Thats my kind of
So we are pulling the car into the
gravel lot of The Logan Hunter Drive-In and
hooking the speaker on the car
window. What three horror flicks are
on the triple bill for tonight and what
goodies are they serving up at the concession
Well I think I would have
to be playing The Shrieking, but
aside from that I think I would probably stick
with a few of my favorite classics. The
Shining and Godzilla meets
and there would surely be veal
on the menu for the evening.
Hey I've got a
question about your name. Is it your real
name or is it based on 'Logan's Run'?
Weren't those guys who hunt down the over 30
crowd called Logan Hunters?
Its funny you ask about my
name. I wonder if that is going to be a question
that I hear for the rest of my life. When I was
working as a waiter I used to hear that about
once a week at least. Honestly I have never seen
the movie and that is probably why. Oh your
name is Logan? Like Logans Run.
Hu ha hu ha. I can still hear the stupid
chuckle of the filthy rich costumers who think
theyre better than everyone and are trying
to give you a hard time just to show off to their
not so good looking girlfriend. *******!
Logan -- Do you have
any other projects you would like to plug,
promote, brag about, or inform the www.racksandrazors.com readers about?
I write movies for the most
part. I just got done writing a suspense thriller
that was labeled a mix between The Sixth
Sense and The Shining It is
creepy as hell, but more of a psychologically
scary movie. I just got the script out to
Shamberg Productions -- the guys who produced
Pulp Fiction. The script went through all five
levels of their readers in several days and is
apparently going to be read by Michael Shamberg
himself. I am also finishing up the best script I
have written yet. It is a full-fledged horror and
it is AWESOME. My story is the traditional,
zombies have taken over the world
style, but it picks up about a year after the
major outbreak. I know your probably thinking,
Great, another rendition of Land Of The
Dead. Not even close. I saw Land of the
Dead the day it came out and was very excited to
see that it is nothing at all, like my story.
Good luck Romero, Im ready to put my dark,
grungy style story, showing the true nature of
man kind, up against your political horror
anytime. But being that it isnt finished
yet, I cant tell you much about it. But I
will guarantee that it is going to be huge.
What makes you go psycho
in real life?
Well there are different
degrees of psychoses, some of them being good and
some of them being not so good. In general
though, people who have their head so far up
their own a** that they think theyre better
than everyone Actors, that usually
makes me pretty psycho. Also
will usually get the job done.
What scares you in real life?
