“[W]e needed to get into Alec’s mind because otherwise he was just like this huge loser, and that’s all he was.”—Mitchell Stafiej

For those of you who enjoy James Watts’ on-screen shenanigans, we hope you can check out his film Death Trip, a mumble-gore comedy he co-wrote with his partner, Kelly Kay Hurcomb.
