The feature debut of Benjamin Koppin, upcoming indie film Made Me Do It is being described as a mix between Natural Born Killers and John Carpenter’s Halloween, with a little Psycho thrown into the mix. In other words, it’s a trip inside the mind of a killer, and the experimental film has piqued our interest here on Dread.
No stranger to filmmaking, Koppin was a camera operator/video editor for the now defunct FEARnet, and he’s also directed a handful of short films over the years. With Made Me Do It, he puts those skills to the ultimate test in what he’s describing as his most ambitious venture to date.
“We shot on over 10 different cameras and various stocks including VHS, Super 8 Video, 16mm film, and 35mm film to create the bizarre flashback sequences,” Koppin told us when we asked what it is about his film that makes it so different from all the others.
In his debut feature, college student Ali Hooper (Anna B. Shaffer) and her little brother, Nick (Jason Gregory London), are attacked by a masked maniac, and the key to their surviving the night lies in unlocking a secret from the killer’s past.
