By: Jamie Steinberg
Q) What are the recent projects that you are working on?
A) I have a film set for release in October for Cleopatra Entertainment called Halloween Pussy Trap Kill Kill. It’s a fun film that I starred alongside Richard Grieco, Sara Malakul Lane and Dave Mustaine is a part of it as well. I’m also developing a comic book written by Chuck Dixon called GOMERS.
Q) Please tell us the premise for The Domicile and about your character David.
A) The Domicile is a film about a once successful playwright who is looking to regain his stardom. In the process, his wife dies and he seeks revenge for Russell’s (Steve Richard Harris) affair. David is Russell’s friend and apprentice, who is living vicariously through Russell’s infidelity.
Q) What made you want to be a part of the film?
A) I’m a big fan of haunting stories. Jared [Cohn] laid his vision out and I had always wanted to be a part of a haunting story. As a young kid I was always fascinated with ghost hunting. I thought it would be fun to do a film like this.

Q) What were some of your most memorable moments from filming The Domicile?
A) Our power going out in the entire house on Day 2. It was quite chilling to be honest. The house itself is very old, dating back to the early 1900’s. We had to get electric department to help with getting the power back on for filming.
Q) You frequently work in the horror/dramatic field. What is it about this genre that fascinates you?
