“Face of Evil” was a great film. Tell me why you decided to write and direct the film?
Vito: First of all, I have always liked horror movies so eventually it was inevitable that my first feature would be within that range. From a directorial stand point I think horror or a thriller would be the best way to express yourself.
What challenges did you face while filming the movie?
Vito: There were a lot of challenges. I wrote it in a way that I thought about shooting it. The first half takes place in a house and the second half takes place in a different location with different characters. I split post-production.
You have a great cast in “Face of Evil.” What was it like for you working with the cast?
Vito: Working with my cast was great. There are a lot of up and coming promising actors.
What would you like to say to the fans and audiences that will be watching “Face of Evil?”
Vito: Go watch the movie and then develop your own theory about it. There are big topical issues in this movie like post-traumatic stress disorder, suicide and mass shootings. There are also other issues like even fear of each other, trusting nobody. I don’t want to lecture anyone about anything. Have a good time and then perhaps when you leave the theatre then you can think about the messages. It is worth making people with a movie.
