Your budget was a little smaller on this one, yes?
Kind of (laughs). It depends on who you talk to. Some people say that the original was between $90 and $100 million, and ours was just under $6 million. It's a big difference.
The limited budget - as the film buffs we are, we immediately realized that this had to be a horror film. We always said that if Starship Troopers was Aliens, this one was Alien. It wasn't going to be as good as a Ridley Scott picture, but it was going to be 10 Little Indians in a haunted house. That was just a given. We started from that premise and realized that we weren't going to have something that was spectacle upon spectacle upon spectacle. We have to deliver that, as well, but we had to be conscious of what we could do.
