“I read, write, and watch things that scare me because I crave the adrenaline of the scare. Creating that raw emotion in a cinematic way is a reminder of why I love going to the movies. I think audiences love monsters because it’s a means of giving an inner anxiety or insecurity a face. In Come, Said the Night, the monster is a representation of the anxiety that comes with growing up and discovering sexuality. I am drawn to stories about this process of growing up because we were all children once and can all relate to the exciting, yet sometimes terrifying moments of discovering the world. Furthermore, stories about young girls growing up and grappling with these issues are at a shortage… I intend for this film to scare you, and deliver an underlying message that will leave a deeper impression than the monster’s foreboding hum.
