FUKUOKA, 2018. Finally finished the screenplay for a horror film that I had been writing for days. And I feel relieved.
I am a huge horror fan, but I realized this: It’s one thing to watch a horror movie; to write it is another. It didn’t feel good to be constantly imagining demons, spirits and possessions for days; creating characters and then abusing their weaknesses; pulling mundane scenarios and turning them into something sinister. It wears you out and drives you nuts.
Finishing it feels like coming out of a dark hole.
