Below Fractured writer Christian J Hearn offers up their Fractured Thoughts for your enjoyment!

1. How did you get into making movies?
Christian J Hearn: I’ve been in love with films and storytelling since I was about six years old after the first time I saw The Terminator. At various times I aspired work in special effects, stunt work, and directing. Somehow that all evolved into now being a writer.

2. Tell us about your involvement with Fractured?
Christian J Hearn: I wrote the screenplay for Fractured after Jamie first proposed the idea to me. I loved the concept. I loved the idea of taking something familiar and turning it on its head and we both shared a lot of the same influences, such as John Carpenter’s Halloween and Bryan Bertino’s The Strangers. I’m also a big fan of ‘lovers-on-the-run’ films like Badlands, Bonnie and Clyde, and Gun Crazy and I saw an opportunity to work that element into the script and have fun with it.

3. What scares you the most?
Christian J Hearn: Wilful ignorance and injustice scare me more than anything. In short, people.

4. What is next for you?
Christian J Hearn: Jamie, April, and I are developing a couple more projects together, both firmly in the horror/thriller camp, with him directing one and me directing the other. One of them has supernatural tones to it, a first for Jamie and I, and the film I will be directing is kind of like Misery meets Get Out.

5. What is your most fractured thought?
Christian J Hearn: My most Fractured thought? Blueberries and strawberries on nachos with vegan cheese is delicious!
