Director stunned by TV violence
“I thought, ‘I can’t believe we’re going to do this on TV.’ Because it’s pretty explicit,” Gordon says with a smile. In his entry, a young police officer spends a night in her precinct with a cannibal. “It’s funny because it was going to NBC and I thought we would have to cut out all of the gore and mayhem. I showed the rough cut to my wife and she said, ‘They’re never going to show this on television.’ And they will.”
Of his experience on the production, which was shot up in Canada, Gordon relays, “I actually had a really good time doing it. The budget on the show was not high, and we had less time to shoot in than Masters of Horror – eight days to do the episode. I had a great leading lady, from Mad Men, she was perfect.”
