  • I want to talk about your movie, which I watched last night, and I really enjoyed random acts of violence.

  • This is a really achievement.

  • You wrote this, you directed it, you're in it.

  • And this is really this amazing vision that you've brought to life on.

  • It is an intense film.

  • It's the kind of movie that, uh provokes a lot of strong reactions from people.

  • And you say you've been hearing, uh, strong reactions on both sides.

  • Yeah, Yeah, that's that's and I kind of set out to do that.

  • I wanted to make a movie that, like, you know, for people that kind of connected to it, it would be something special for them.

  • And but But anything short of that, I wanted you toe hate it and and questioned my right to make it.

  • Andi, that's what's happened, man.

  • It's like I don't know about you, but like when I see a movie has got like, 40 50% on rotten tomatoes, that is infinitely more compelling to me as a viewer than one that's like 90% across the board, because 50% means they did something and took some chances and committed.

  • And so Oh, man.

  • What's amazing, though, is that, like a lot of the like haters, um, ended up paying us compliments like, you know, someone calling us lurid and humorless and and cruel and garish and unpleasant.

  • And I mean, like, man, those air, all adjectives I take any day of the damn week for a horror movie, man like it would be awful if everyone's like it was so lovely and warm, and I left there feeling better than I showed up there.

  • I was like, Oh, God, yeah, right, right.

  • No one says that about Texas Chainsaw Massacre or any of the classics you know, took the whole family.

  • All of us forgot our problems for an hour and a half.

  • E don't want the Marley and me, you know, lying for my movie.

  • It's one of the aspects of the movie that I found really compelling is that it's about someone who I want to use the correct term.

  • It's not really a comic book.

  • The main character, you'd call it more.

  • He's a graphic artist, um, graphic novelist, and he's written these these books about, uh that you know, a really about the horror genre, and it is a horror movie, but the main theme of it is about whether it's OK to exploit violence and horror.

  • And it had me, um, like all of us, kind of sometimes getting into the violence.

  • And then at the same time, you're asking the question that they're asking the protagonist you're profiting off this and it's this e don't know.

  • I thought was a very It was sort of a good mind puzzle.

  • Thank you.

  • That it was It was sort of, you know, my writing partner, Jesse, and I kind of unpacking our fascinations.

  • If that makes sense, you know, a big horror fan, big true crime fan.

  • And I noticed something, which is that I couldn't name any of the kids that that Michael Myers or Freddie or Jason kill, with the exception of maybe like, you know, the main characters.

  • But for the most part, I couldn't get any of the kids they off.

  • And then I also kind of realized that, like, the same way I could name Dahmer's gacey, Bundy, the Zodiac, Richard Ramirez, all these e I could and I could lift off all their stats like they were athletes.

  • But again, I couldn't name a single person that they had murdered.

  • Yeah, and and I didn't quite sit well with me.

  • And so the kind of meditation of me trying to unpack some of that stuff is kind of what makes up the DNA of random acts of violence.

  • Yes, it's really well done.

  • We have a clip here.

  • This is a clip that is, um, that you selected.

  • I actually love this scene because the location is so eerie.

  • But you guys on and I know that you picked this because there's no spoilers in it.

  • But you the protagonist is the graphic graphic novelist, and you are his kind of manager.

  • And you guys are on this road trip to go down to Comic con and you've stopped off and you've gone into this really freaking weird, like it's not a 7 11.

  • Its's kind of posing as a 7 11, but it's it's It's one of those places that maybe even doesn't exist anymore.

  • If it does exist, it exists way off the main drag.

  • Correct?

  • Correct?

  • Yeah, the world's crappiest gas station.

  • All right, let's take a look at this clip from random acts of violence.

  • Yeah, you're on Burger, isn't he?

  • Holy shit.

  • I don't know.

  • A place like this so existed.

  • What did they sell here?

  • Uh, pickled eggs.

  • Yeah.

  • I mean, I met.

  • Let me rephrase that.

  • What do people actually buy from here in the last?

  • Nothing.

  • Apparently, um, is any of this getting your creative juices flowing?

  • You know, give it a rest.

  • This could be the scene of a massacre.

  • Final issue Starting, uh, get into your head now.

  • No, it's my job.

  • It's coming.

  • Alright, that's the whole point of me designing, you know, the road trip.

  • All right.

  • It's just like tingle stimulates, um, inspiration, Final issue.

  • Inspiration is the objective.

  • Or conversely, it doesn't have to be the last issue, but it's the latter.

  • We've talked about it, man.

  • I'm I can't.

  • It's not healthy, you know.

  • You don't have toe wake up.

  • Cold sweats, whatever it takes.

  • I wish I wanted to eat some of this food so I could make you pay for it.

  • None of this is edible.

  • Um oh, my God.

  • Look at this thing.

  • Jiang's because they're supposed to be.

  • Looks to me like just a sold out rack.

  • A slasher man.

  • Are you thinking what I'm thinking.

  • You know, I'm thinking what you're thinking, but it is time for a refill, right?

  • It is.

  • We got a trunk full of them, or we could maybe do that.

  • The next town over.

  • Is this kind of It's a little bit much for them.

  • No.

  • McBain and McBain.

  • Where was that?

  • By the way?

  • That I think, is slightly outside of a small town called Bethany, Ontario, which is itself maybe 1000 people or something.

  • So yeah, eso Everything was like within an hour and a half, two hours outside of Ontario.

  • So, like the R Senate of some highway offering?

  • Well, I'm never going there because that really looked like an unpleasant place.

I want to talk about your movie, which I watched last night, and I really enjoyed random acts of violence.
