Dan Fogler Brings You "Hysterical Psycho"

How do you convince a bunch of your friends to go into the middle of Maine to shoot a movie in January? I have o clue, but Dan Fogler (“Balls Of Fury”, “Fanboys”) found a way. Luckily for him his friends are also very talented and from the looks of things “Hysterical Psycho” is going to be a pretty funny movie.

Launching the "Moonlake Series Horror Stories," writer/director Dan Fogler (who acted in Balls of Fury and Fanboys) and NYC theater troupe Stage 13 create a hilarious horror lampoon of the stuck-in-a-cabin-with-the-phone-lines-cut-and-the-car-battery-dead ilk. "Moon Lake has been a hotbed of evil activities for centuries," our droll, Hitchcockesque narrator tells us in an inventively animated preamble to the live-action splatterfest that's about to unfold. The site of some ancient, angry goings-down between the moon and the earth, rural Moon Lake now holds the strongest amount of insanity-inducing lunar radiation on the planet. When a New York theater troupe travels to those snowy woods to "find themselves," one by one, each member begins to get killed. But who is the killer among them? Did the lunar radiation turn one of the thespians into a crazy killer? And what's up with the groundskeeper and his deaf-mute sister?

What’s pretty interesting about this film is that Dan Fogler has absolutely no experience as a director. He actually picked up most of his skills while playing a young Alfred Hitchcock on the set of the film “Number 13”, which will be released next year. On top of that the majority of the cast is made up of members of his NYC based theater company Stage 13, so it should be interesting to see how the final product turned out.

From the interview you can tell Dan's got a real passion for the film and despite the conditions everyone really enjoyed working on the project. “Hysterical Psycho” recently screened at the Tribeca Film Festival and should be coming to DVD shortly.
