Director talks SOME GUY WHO KILLS PEOPLE


By Michael Gingold
Director Jack Perez dropped Fango a line with details on SOME GUY WHO KILLS PEOPLE, an offbeat serial-killer/revenge shocker he’s just about to start lensing. Scripted by Ryan A. Levin, who made the horror shorts THE FIFTH (an award-winner at Fantasia, Fantastic Fest and other festivals) and TOUR DE FRIGHT, the movie is executive-produced by John Landis and stars Kevin Corrigan, whose credits include THE LAST WINTER and a recent recurring role on FRINGE (and playing a nerdy Fango fan in WALKING AND TALKING), in the title role.
“I was given SOME GUY WHO KILLS PEOPLE by my manager, Seth Nagel, and fell in love with it immediately,” Perez, who previously helmed WILD THINGS 2, MONSTER ISLAND and (under the pseudonym “Ace Masters”) the cult fave MEGA SHARK VS. GIANT OCTOPUS, tells us. “It had a unique tonal mix—both genuinely funny and genuinely terrifying, with a dimension to the characters more often found in straight drama. It reminded me immediately of the vibe in AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON. Oddly, it was only after my meeting with Ryan Levin, and his producers, Michael Wormser and Micah Goldman, that I learned that John Landis was the executive producer!” Wormser and Goldman also teamed last year to produce Jake Kennedy’s shocker PENANCE.
When it came to casting SOME GUY, “Right away I thought of Kevin Corrigan [pictured] for the leading role of Ken, a suicidal illustrator who violently strikes out against a group of vicious bullies who tortured him in high school,” Perez says. “Kevin and I had always wanted to do something together, and he soon signed on, followed by the amazing Karen Black as Ken’s mother, Lucy Davis from the original THE OFFICE and SHAWN OF THE DEAD as Ken’s would-be girlfriend, Barry Bostwick as the wacked-out small-town sheriff trying to catch the killer, child actor Ariel Gade from DARK WATER and ALIENS VS. PREDATOR—REQUIEM as Ken’s daughter and KIDS’ Leo Fitzpatrick as Ken’s best friend. I count myself lucky to have secured such a fine cast.”

The film rolls this week, and is set to wrap early next month. “Our shooting schedule is short—pretty down and dirty—but I’m psyched to be at the helm of such a cool project,” Perez says. It sounds cool to us, too—look for more on SOME GUY WHO KILLS PEOPLE in the near future.
