My Dinner With Marcus

Sean HoodSo, would you eat a sandwich of Blood Sausage and sliced tounge to get a writing job?

Well this guy did, and I think I would have to for this job.

Hid dinner was to get the job for Marcus’ upcoming project, Subterranean (aka Pod).

The director of Friday the 13th makes me a sandwich.

I’m sitting in the beachfront Malibu home of infamous German director Marcus Nispel (Friday the 13, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), hoping to convince him to pick me as a writer on his next horror film, Subterranean.

In the middle of our heated debate about whether or not more exposition could have improved the original “Alien,” Marcus abruptly goes to the kitchen to make sandwiches. When he returns, I realize that if I eat the sandwich I will probably get the job, and if I don’t, I probably will not…..
