KC: I thought I saw you at the beginning of the movie, do you have a little cameo?
JC: Haha…yeah that’s me. My uncle was like…”you should throw up at the party scene…” And I did.
KC: I read that Victor Miller, the original writer of Friday the 13th, worked with you on this film. How much input did he have on the screenplay, direction, and overall influence of the movie?
JC: The movie is an homage flick, so without Friday The 13th, there wouldn’t be this flick. He gave a few suggestions on the script. Things that I was closed minded about until he brought them up and then would be like, oh yeah…you’re right! He hasn’t seen the final product yet. We were talking the other day though and I’m gonna head west to take him out to lunch or something. He’s a cool dude.
KC: What were filming conditions like?
JC: Filming was cold and cold. We filmed November 1-13. Only having 1 day off. Doing 17 -19 hour days. Getting used to it was rough but by the last 5 days it was normal. On the East Coast in November…it’s freezing. Especially at 4 AM. It was really a life changing experience, though. I learned a lot. It was the first film set I was ever on! It was a lot of responsibility. But it was the best 12 days of my life. I slept for about 2 days straight once we wrapped.
