Soska Sisters Talk About Their Approach To See No Evil 2 Posted by Joseph Lee on 07.24.2014
Including how they go the project...
In an interview with Shock Till You Drop, Jen and Sylvia Soska spoke about their approach to their first sequel, which will be See No Evil 2. The film will be released this fall on DVD and Blu-ray and stars Danielle Harrie, Katharine Isabelle, Glenn Jacobs and Kaj-Erik Eriksen.
Jen Soska on why they accepted the job: "After American Mary - like Katie [Isabelle] where people just wanted her to play the same role over and over – we were getting sent like medical horror movies. And then they sent us See No Evil 2 and we didn't even read it right away. We read it and we didn't even realize it was a script for a sequel to See No Evil. We had seen the first one and we started watching wrestling when Kane was introduced, so we were like no f**king way! It was amazing. We didn't think we'd get it. And we're on like a quota list so if they feel like 'Oh, we need to get a female director, put the Soskas on it' they call us."
Sylvia Soska on how the film is different visually from their last two films: "We love horror and we love '80s slasher and this is a classic throwback to slashers like Halloween, Halloween II and Hellraiser and other films that had an influence on us. And this is so much better than American Mary because we have grown."
Jen on the film building the characters first: "You don't care about people dying unless you have an emotional attachment to them. So for the first little bit you almost forget it's a horror movie, but then there's a point where it turns and it doesn't stop from there. Everyone is fair game."
