Mason McNulty is an actor and now producer in Los Angeles. His newest film Gacy: Terror in Suburbia is loosely based on serial killer John Wayne Gacy. Mason is excited for this upcoming release and was happy to talk to me about the film in this interview.
You have a new film called Gacy: Terror in Suburbia set to release soon. How did you get involved with this project?
Thank you for your time. I love this project and feel very close to it because not only am I in the movie, but I produced it as well. It is my baby. I got involved in the project because I have worked with our director Michael Feifer before and when Michael presented the script to us there was no hesitation, I wanted to do the movie. I loved that not only I got to be in the movie, but I was also learning the behind-the-scenes production. Which will be so valuable in the future to what I want to do once I graduate from high school.
What did you think of the script when you first read it?
I absolutely loved the script. I have always loved the spooky, crime drama movies. The script to me has all that. When I read it, I could not wait to start working on the script.
This is a film loosely based on the serial killer John Wayne Gacy. Did you know anything about this crime before you got involved with this film?
I actually did know who John Wayne Gacy was. I watch a lot of real crime documentaries and became interested in him before I even read the script. It amazes me how much damage and sadness one person can create in people’s lives.
What did you learn from making Gacy: Terror in Suburbia?
What I learned from making Gacy: Terror in Suburbia was to watch for tell signs of a serial killer. To always be on the lookout with your surroundings.
What can people do to protect themselves from this crime?
I feel what people can do to protect themselves from this type of crime is to always be aware of your surroundings. Also “NEVER” put yourself in a situation that can lead you to a criminal serial killer as some of the victims did.
What is your favorite memory from working on this film?
I would have to say my favorite memory of working on this set is learning the behind the scenes in production. I feel that has a ton of value. But also, my first love is and will always be acting. I love putting the characters together and creating my vision of who the character should be.
This is a very dramatic film. Is there anything you did to break the tension in between scenes?
Yes, I am a fun and lighthearted kind of person. So in between scenes I would make jokes and chat with my cast members.
Fun Question– What is one thing no one knows about you?
I think that the one thing people do not know about me is I am a huge animal lover. I love all kinds of different animals. If I could have several different animals I would totally.
Where will we be able watch Gacy: Terror in Suburbia when it comes out?
