Director William Malone on his '70s Night Stalker spoof, working with Klaus Kinski, being a Beatle and his crazy expressionist dream film PARASOMNIA (2008).
TV STORE ONLINE: Do you sit down and talk with people that say they are fans of your first film NIGHT TURKEY (1972) very often?
MALONE: Never! You're a fan of NIGHT TURKEY?
TV STORE ONLINE: I am.
MALONE: Are you on drugs?
TV STORE ONLINE: No, but I wish I had been when I saw it for the first time! (Laughing)...Listen, there's much to point out regarding NIGHT TURKEY. Did you know that you and your friends spear-headed the "Turkey-ploitation" genre? You may have beat out BLOOD FREAK (1972) by a few months...
MALONE: I've never seen BLOOD FREAK.
TV STORE ONLINE: The killer turkey in BLOOD FREAK is just a guy wearing a turkey head, whereas, your killer turkey is an actual killer turkey.
MALONE: Well, I'm glad we fell the way of pop culture.
