We chat with one of the hardest working men in indie horror, MJ Dixon, about the Mychoverse and his upcoming films, like”Slasher House III”.
THIS EPISODE: INTERVIEW WITH MJ DIXON (“SLASHER HOUSE III”)
ABOUT THIS EPISODE
NHE host Scott Murphy chats to writer/director MJ Dixon about a few of the upcoming projects in various stages of development, including Slasher House III, Strawmen, and PandaMonium Incorporated.
All of these films continue on with the slasher universe he and his wife Anna Dixon created, known as the Mychoverse.
Over the course of the interview, MJ talks to us about the origins of the Mychoverse, where he plans to take it, and whether Slasher House III will answer the various dangling threads from the previous Slasher House film.
Plus, we get into why the character of Red gets a new actress in each film, why the character of Corbin is the only slasher from the franchise without his own spin-off thus far, and whether Dixon has a favorite killer from the ones he has created.
Elsewhere in the interview, Scott talks to MJ about how the company’s distribution deal with 101 films was a breakthrough for Mycho Entertainment, how he manages to stay so prolific (he directed nine features and several shorts since 2012), and if he hopes to remain as prolific in the future (COVID permitting).
Finally, speaking of prolific creators, the two venture off into a discussion about the ever-prolific and ever-brilliant Takashi Miike.
