In this second of two parts (the first can be read here), I talk to writer/director/cinematographer Bart Mastronardi about his feature debut at the helm, VINDICATION (out on DVD April 13 from Big Bite Entertainment/R2 Films).

Bart Mastronardi is part of the East Coast low-budget horror film community that seems to crank out genre features and shorts about once a month, more often than not with him behind the camera as the DP. His first feature as a writer/director, VINDICATION, was anointed by no less than Clive Barker, and the upcoming DVD release from Big Bite Entertainment/R2 Films carries his seal of approval.
In this second half of my interview with ALL ABOUT EVIL’s Joshua Grannell (see the first part here), we talk about what it’s like to work with a decent budget, the trials and tribulations of independent filmmaking and EVIL’s star-studded lineup.
I first became aware of Joshua Grannell and his alter ego, Peaches Christ, on a trip to San Francisco in 2000? 2001? I was dating a guy who had moved down from SF to Los Angeles, and on one of our many trips up north, we took in a screening of SHOWGIRLS at the Midnight Mass summer film series. Peaches was the host of the evening, and the show opened with a re-enactment of both the “Goddess” number and the “Nomi F**ks Zack in the pool” scene with drag queens (and one drag king playing “Zack”). I was hooked.
