Director Statement: 

DIANE is a present-day supernatural horror/thriller that also tells a compelling and honest story about the human condition. The critical essays of Roland Barthes, the video art of Bill Viola, and the illustrations of Edward Gorey were all influences for the DIANE screenplay. Its cinematic inspirations were Stanley Kubrick’s supernatural drama, The Shining, Gus Van Sant’s crime and punishment road movie, Drugstore Cowboy, and Brian De Palma’s stylized suspense/thriller, Blow Out. Writer/director Michael Mongillo (Being Michael Madsen) confesses that the muses for his frequently chilling and occasionally humorous fourth feature film may not be readily apparent. In a 2016 interview with Fangoria Magazine, he admitted, ͞…Now I find myself describing [DIANE] in literary terms: to me it’s Stephen King meets Elmore Leonard.͟
