Brian Yuzna was the producer and writer of Silent Night 5 as well as the director of such films as The Dentist, Return of the Living Dead 3 and Bride of Re-Animator. In other words, he's kinda the man, a dude who quite frankly deserves a lot more recognition than he often gets. In any event, I figured if anyone knew the answers to my questions it'd be Yuzna and being that we were already friends on the 'book, I decided to hit him up and find out those answers for myself. To my surprise, he actually took the time out of his day to offer some up.
In his reply, Yuzna provided some details about how the film came to be as well as how Rooney came on board and what he was like on set, information that I was never privy to until now, even being such a big fan of the movie. I don't know if anyone reading this digs The Toy Maker as much as I do, but I figured i'd share the brief interaction for anyone who does. So here's a special peek inside my private Facebook messages!
As you can see I got a little greedy and tried digging for more information, which Yuzna never replied to. But hey, i'm just thankful and grateful that he took the time out to reply to my first message. You the man, B-ry.
Thus is the beauty of Facebook, granting us fans unprecedented access to the people responsible for the shit we love and cherish.
If you missed it, check out my love letter to The Toy Maker, which I wrote up earlier this month over at my boy Tom Bryce's blog Shit Movie Fest!
