How do we know that the success of a film is in no way predetermined? I believe we’ve got our answer to this, and that it is this: we don’t know.
When the original movie was released and people complained that it wasn’t a complete product, we took the opportunity to re-edit the film with the help of our friends Michael Rooker and Kevin Smith — a project that gave us a shot at seeing if we could find the right balance between the original film and the finished product.
For those of you that haven’t seen the first film, do yourself a favor. Go see it again. After all, not only do you want to watch the film again, but you’ll likely have to watch it again several times — just to hear the same scene repeated, and to see how it turned out. It’s a lot of fun — and to be honest, there’s a lot to like about it as well.
What made you want to re-edit the movie in the first place, and what did you learn from that re-editing that you applied to the new one?
It started with the desire to try something different. At the time, I loved movies that were both fun and challenging. It’s a little bit more of a leap to make the movie where I have complete freedom, so that became a big motivator.
After re-editing, I realized that it wasn’t so much the story that was going to change so much. What was lost was that there hadn’t been much of a story. The movie took place in a world that didn’t have a story in it at all, except for the fact that there was a character named Jason and you found out that he was kidnapped by vampires. And that was it. The storyline was that we were on a hunting expedition and Jason was there. If it had lasted a certain amount of time, it would have become a really fun and satisfying film.
But that’s not the world that we inhabit. We do exist in this world where all the movies are based around this idea that Jason is a villain of some sort. That kind of made me feel like I’d written a story for a character that I had never written.
If this had been a movie like a Batman film or a Superman film or whatever, I probably would have written it as a villain. It would very much have been a bad guy story. I think it would have been a good story.
