Dan Ochs: Horrible Imaginings Film Makers Roll Call

Horrible Imaginings Film Makers Roll Call!

Dan OchsDan Ochs, director of Demon Possessed Wife

I'm a 26 year old filmmaker from Louisville, CO. I moved to San Diego a year ago to pursue my dream of becoming a writer and director. I have been a horror fan all my life and this short was my first effort making a film with actors and a crew for a contest. Some films that inspired me to become a director include Takashi Miike's Audtition, Ichi the Killer and Gozu, Darren Aronofsky's Requiem for a Dream, Eli Roth's Cabin Fever and Hostel, Michael Haneke's Funny Games, and Pascal Laugier's Martyrs. I love films that push the envelope of the horror genre and make you ask "What would I do if I was in that situation?"

The film stars Justin Little, Tim Clifton and Giovanna Maimone. I was the writer, director, producer and editor. Joel Boling was the co-producer, grip and co-editor. Michael Brown was the Director of Photography. Special Effects were done by Stuart Hirsch and Yoni Baker.
