Jennifer Lynch and Vincent D'Onofrio on set of "Chained".

 98 min.
Fri, Nov 9th at 7:00pm
Tivoli Theatre
6350 Delmar Blvd.
At the end of an afternoon excursion, Sarah Fiddler and her young son step into a taxi to head home. They never get there. The cab belongs to Bob (Vincent D’Onofrio, “Law & Order: Criminal Intent”), a taxi-driving serial killer. Re-christening the boy “Rabbit,” Bob forcibly adopts him and compels his “son” to clean up after his crimes. In his own distorted way, Bob wants to be a good father – to raise a son who is well-prepared to succeed in the world. Bob, however, has an unusual definition of “success”: He fully expects Rabbit, now in his teens, to become a mass murderer.

Director Jennifer Lynch (“Surveillance”) also participates in two free events on Nov. 10: a program  about her upcoming “A Fall from Grace”, which she hopes to shoot in St. Louis, and a Q&A surveying her career (see Special Events).

Vincent D’Onofrio talks about new films “Chained” and “Sinister”

Vincent D’Onofrio  is known best for his roles in projects like “Men in Black”, “Full Metal Jacket” and TV’s “Law and Order: Criminal Intent”. Vincent recently directed an amazing horror film called “Don’t Go in the Woods”, starred in Jennifer Lynch’s “Chained”. Media Mikes had a chance to chat with Vincent about that role in “Chained” and if we can expect him to direct again soon.

Mike Gencarelli: How did you get involved with Jennifer Lynch’s disturbing “Chained”?
Vincent D’Onofrio: We had a mutual friend and she wanted me to read the script. I have known Jennifer for a longtime, even before she did “Boxing Helena”. So she sent it to me and I thought it would be a really good idea to do. I got in touch with her immediately and then we were off.

MG: How did you transform yourself into Bob for “Chained”?
VDO: It is all about telling the story correctly. You have to figure out a way to get away with the character that you are not going to overshadow the story but at the same time do it right. I brought this speech impediment into it to give notice that something is wrong with this guy and he has a past. His posture and that sort of stuff is in the story and is scripted well and a lot of that helps the character along. Mainly my job was to bring in this guy that can get away doing these horrific things.

MG:You have taken on so many unique character roles from “Men in Black” to “The Cell” to “Full Metal Jacket”; do you always aim for the most challenging roles or does it just end up working out for you?
VDO: I think it is a little bit of both. I worked on TV for almost ten years and it is nice to get back into playing different types of characters. I think that when you are a character actor you some great opportunities like the antagonist. I really enjoy it. If you pick the right ones, you can get lucky. I always look for a challenge and always try to pick different roles. I think sometimes I get asked and then sometimes I go after parts like that because I find them interesting.

MG:What do you enjoy most about working in the horror genre?
VDO: I love it. I just really do. It is a really fun genre to work in. I directed the horror film “Don’t Go in the Woods” and that was fun in one way and “Chained” was fun in another way. “Chained” is a very character driven piece and “Don’t Go in the Woods” is basically a horror/slasher musical. The idea of living in that world of horror, there is a lot that can be done creatively to make it different than something you have seen before. That is best thing about good horror films and why I watch them. The bad ones – the ones that are not as entertaining are the ones you’ve seen over and over. The ones that are the coolest are brand new and finds a way to re-tell the horror. Those are fun to watch.

MG:You are also working again with Jennifer Lynch on “A Fall From Grace” & “The Monster Next
Door”; how those come about?
VDO: “A Fall From Grace” is definitely happening. I am will be working on that with her soon, once she gets the financing ready. So yeah, once she is ready…I am good to go.

MG:Tell us about your role in “Sinister”?
VDO: That is basically Ethan Hawke’s film. He is a good friend of mine. They asked me to cover over a help out with a character. I only worked on it for a couple of hours. I am only in the film a little bit as a favor but it is suppose to be really intense. The testing is amazing. I am looking forward to seeing it.

MG:I am a big fan of “Don’t Go in the Woods”, you plan on directing again soon?
VDO: Yeah I am doing to do it again. It is going to be completely different from that film. It is going to have to be something that I am committed to give a couple of years to. The next one will hopefully be a little bit bigger of a budget. We did “Woods” for only 100K and shot it in 12 days. So not too much bigger but I am working on this other thing currently. So keep an eye out.

Interview: “Chained” with Vincent D’Onofrio

Vincent D’Onofrio has enjoyed a career playing characters who aren’t exactly warm and fuzzy. From his famous turn in Full Metal Jacket as the troubled Private Gomer Pyle, to Edgar in Men In Black, D’Onofrio has become a go-to man when it comes to psychotic characters. It certainly doesn’t hurt matters that he excels at the part.
With Chained, D’Onofrio plays Bob, a sadistic killer who preys upon families with his taxi. It’s another fine performance from the man, and he brings a lot of his characteristic quirks to the part. We had a chance to discuss the role with Mr. D’Onofrio recently.

When studying for Bob, did you research any serial killers?
Just as a person, not as an actor, I have no sympathy towards them at all. I think they should be locked up. As an actor, I explored it a lot to give Bob certain actions for why he does the things he does. As I approach this character, and telling the story properly with him, it’s about executing it correctly, so that the story is told properly so that it’s not about Bob and who he is, but an actual story. I made sure his tone and his behavior was a certain way that it fit the storyline.

You’ve played various characters with certain quirks throughout your career. What about that role attracts you?
It’s stuff that I bring to the part. If you were to read these scripts the story would be there, but you wouldn’t necessarily associate those things with the character. Most actors bring things to the part without changing any words, or changing any part of the story. We help tell the story in the way that we thought of, so there are things about Bob that were not scripted that I brought. If I think the story is interesting enough to tell, then that’s what I’ll bring to it.

When you’re playing a character with secrets or you have something to hide, how do you suppress that?
You do it like we do in real life; we behave like we don’t have them. The deeper the secret, the less you’ll be aware that somebody has them. It’s a secret that’s a very surface secret, we can detect when somebody is holding it back. But if it’s a really deep, dark secret then people behave normally. You’re supposed to behave like you don’t have one.

What was it like to work with Jennifer Lynch on this project?
She’s great. She’s a very hands-on director. She’s good at keeping things going with a very positive attitude, with a lot of great ideas at any given time. I’m going to work with her again on a film called Fall From Grace.

Many times, the most terrifying concepts in horror movies are those that are realistic.  That’s exactly what director Jennifer Lynch sought out to do with her new film Chained.

Chained follows a young boy who is held captive by the serial killer who kidnapped both him and his mother, whom he kills.  After killing his mother, the serial killer Bob (Vincent D’Onofrio) explains to the child that he isn’t wanted, but since he’s there he might as well be made useful.  Bob explains to the boy, newly named Rabbit, that he will be his servant for the rest of his life.  We only see a couple scenes of the young boy as it jumps about a decade in time to when he is about college age.

Chained has an interesting premise, but falls into a rut of monotony throughout the middle of the film.  Pretty much the entire middle of the film is taken up by Bob bringing home girls, trying to teach things to Rabbit, Rabbit rebelling, and then Bob getting angry.  Early on, Rabbit tries to escape, but is caught right away and never can try to escape again because he is then chained to the kitchen wall.  Also, cops never get involved at all during the film, so there’s never any real tension or hint of resolution.  Other than this same routine, we see little else.  We are shown a flashback that tries to explain a little bit about why Bob character does what he does, but it’s not much more than that.

Through all of its flaws, Vincent D’Onofrio carries this film on his back.  His portrayal of the sick serial killer is nothing short of award-worthy.  Right down to the accent and ticks he gives the character all work to bring his madness to the screen.  Even Eamon Farren, the actor who plays grown up Rabbit, does an excellent job.  You can feel the pain of the 9 year old kid trapped in a 19 year old body, never given the chance to truly grow up.  Chained also has a good build-up of the dynamic between the servant and his master.  Rabbit starts out almost as just his pet, but the bond grows over 10 years.  Rabbit never gives in to his sadistic “new father”, but Bob gets offended when Rabbit yells at him that he’s not his dad.

Without giving any spoilers away, the ending is where Chained suffers as well.  There is a twist that is so unneeded and abrupt it feels like it didn’t belong.  It would have been better if the twist had more time to be fleshed out and we see the results, or just leave it out altogether.

Though flawed at times, Chained deserves a watch due to Vincent D’Onofrio alone, and I can give it a modest recommendation that this is a film worth forming your own opinion for.  Chained is now available on DVD and VOD.

Vincent D'Onofrio Talks Chained, Sinister and More

Ever since his stunning turn as tortured Private "Pyle" in Full Metal Jacket put him on the proverbial map back in 1987, actor Vincent D'Onofrio has managed to continuously turn in a string of memorable performances over the last 25 years.

Whether it's his comedic turns in flicks like Ed Wood, Adventures in Babysitting and Men in Black, or some of his far more serious roles in JFK, Strange Days, The Cell, The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys, Thumbsucker and the aforementioned Full Metal Jacket- Vincent D'Onofrio always delivers with a rare tenacity and fearlessness, leaving him one of the most incomparable and unforgettable actors of his generation.

Recently Dread Central had the opportunity to speak with D'Onofrio about his latest project, Jennifer Lynch's Chained, which follows his character Bob, a reclusive serial killer who imprisons a young boy after murdering his mother after a cab ride gone wrong, exploring the themes of nature versus nurture and whether or not human beings are inherently evil.

Check out the highlights from our exclusive interview with the acclaimed actor and hear more from D'Onofrio about his experiences working on Chained, his brief role in the upcoming thriller Sinister and what appeals to him as a character actor.

Chained is currently out on DVD and Blu-ray everywhere courtesy of Anchor Bay Films.

Dread Central: Can you discuss what appealed to you about Chained when you were first considering taking on the role of Bob?

Vincent D'Onofrio: The initial appeal was Jennifer- all Jennifer. We had wanted to work together on Boxing Helena but for some reason that I can't even remember now, it didn't work out. So then a friend of mine told me about this script and that I should read it; I loved it and the character but wasn't even sure if Jennifer even wanted me for the role at that point but of course, it worked out in the end.

Dread Central: There's no doubt that your character is a bad guy; but yet, you almost feel sorry for him at moments throughout the movie during certain moments. How did you find the humanity within such a malicious character like this one?

Vincent D'Onofrio: I wanted to find out two things when it came to Bob- how I should approach this role and how did I feel about him as a character, not as a person? As a person, I don't really care what his excuse was because he is a monster- there's no doubt in my mind about that. But as an actor, you can't really think that way; you can't judge your character. In his world, there are justified reasons to kill people or keep a young boy chained up in the house so my approach was to first and foremost find the humanity in him.

This story in Chained lends itself a lot to the behavior of these characters so that gave me so much material to draw from and work with. I had to find Bob's moral compass which seems strange when you're talking about a killer but in this world, even a guy like him has his own set of rules that he lives by.

Dread Central: How was it collaborating with your younger co-star Eamon (Farren) on Chained? You guys had such great chemistry- did you stick mostly to the script or did Jennifer let you two improvise at all?

Vincent D'Onofrio: We did improvise just a little on this but for the most part, we stuck to the script. It was fantastic so we didn't really need to do much with it at all. But Eamon is such a great actor; you know, sometimes you meet an actor for the first time on location and sometimes you hit it off, sometimes you don’t. But with Eamon and me, it happened immediately; for such a young actor he has this really fantastic concentration to him that made working with him such a pleasure. I could tell after the first day’s work that he was a very committed actor and I think the two of us got along so well because we recognized each other's commitment to these roles.

Dread Central: I wanted to ask because I think you have such an interesting career and I've always enjoyed the unique characters we've seen you portray over the years- what is that you look for when you're considering a project? What keeps your attention?

Vincent D'Onofrio: You know, I just spent the last ten years in the world of television so I kind of feel like I'm starting over again in movies; to be back is really great but the business has really changed so much in that time and even the kinds of films that are being made now are just so different.

What I'm always looking for are great characters; I'm a character actor and I've embraced that. I don't want to take on roles where there's nothing for a character to do- even if it is a really small role, there still has to be some kind of interesting aspect to it for me to want to take it on. But I've always loved fascinating characters- no matter how flawed- so hopefully I'll continue to take on more great characters in the future.

Dread Central: Speaking of minor roles, you recently popped up in Sinister; how was it working on that project?

Vincent D'Onofrio: Oh, that was a really fun thing I did for Ethan (Hawke)! We're really great friends and we share jobs with each other all the time with each other. He called me up and told me about this great horror movie he was involved in and asked if I'd come down for a half-day and do some shooting on a laptop. It was really easy but a lot of fun; I haven't seen the movie yet but I've heard great things about it so far.

'Chained' Star Vincent D' Onofrio Talks Lynch, Kubrick And Playing Thor

When it comes to quality and attention to detail in performance nobody comes to mind quicker then Vincent D’ Onofrio.  Having crafted long lasting memorable character work for well over two decades including his arresting debut as Private Leonard 'Gomer Pyle' Lawrence in Stanley Kubrick’s "Full Metal Jacket" and playing an alien with sass in Barry Sonnenfeld’s "Men in Black," D’ Onofrio is showing no signs of stopping.  His latest film is no different – a harrowing character study of a demented serial killer who chains one of his male victims and makes him a life long slave entitled "Chained."  (On DVD/Blu-ray Oct. 2 from Anchor Bay Home Entertainment)

The film is directed by "Surveillance" (a must see!) maestro and daughter of David Jennifer Lynch and is a film that certainly isn’t for the faint of heart.  We got the amazing opportunity to chat one-on-one with the iconic D’ Onofrio not only about working with the skilled Lynch on "Chained," but also for a very long (sorry Vincent!) and detailed career interview that includes some of my personal favorites moments - from playing Thor in "Adventures in Babysitting" to his turn as Pooh-Bear in "The Salton Sea."  All bow as a master thespian is in the house – welcome the legendary...

Having already played a seriously memorable serial killer in Tarsem Singh’s "The Cell" what made you want to take on the role of Bob in "Chained?"
Vincent D’ Onofrio: You’re right - it is a question.  To play these types of characters and why I would do it.  I guess the reason is that my first reaction is always not to do it and then you read a script and some are a repeat of what you’ve done already and others aren’t.  So when Jennifer sent me this I definitely had never played a part like this or helped to tell a story like this before.  That’s why and that makes the decision for you because of this challenge of how you get away with it, what you can bring to the character, what is that guy like - it convinces you to do it.  

There’s some sinister stuff that happens to and around the titular chained child Rabbit – what were those scenes like to shoot?
with "Chained" director Jennifer Lynch
VD: Really good – Jennifer is an amazing director.  She’s very hands on and right there with you the whole time.  And Eamon (Farren) is a great actor.  He’s young and doesn't have a lot of experience, but you would never know it.  He’s totally committed and totally there hitting the ball back like a tennis match.  The whole art direction, the props, the whole crew was so involved – everyone was connected to it.

You’re very much known as a man who delves into all the details of the characters he plays, so I was curious did you have any input in terms of the look of the house Bob lived in?
VD: Only the bedroom – I had a couple of things about the bedroom and that was it.  It was not just me either, Jennifer planned the whole house out and when I arrived it was already being built and was perfect.  Then her and I took a walk into the bedroom and talked about the bedroom scenes and how things should be arranged, but nothing big.  I didn't alter the set in any way - that’s all Jennifer.

You seemed to have developed a good working relationship with Jennifer Lynch – what about her as a director has been most engaging to you?
Jennifer Lynch
VD: She’s just a pleasure to be with and work with.  There are a lot of good directors out there and they all have a different way of doing things and I liked her way of doing things.  It’s not difficult to bring a character in, not difficult to execute the character in front of her, it’s just a pleasure.  She has all the good ideas ring out on the set and whichever one rings the truest is the one we use.  It’s an open atmosphere and I like that.

Past Work – "Full Metal Jacket" was a real emotional rollercoaster for your character.  What was it like to work on that role and with the legendary Stanley Kubrick so early in your career?
VD: Yeah, it was my first feature.  Basically all I can really remember is not wanting to get fired.  Because there were people being fired and so I just wanted to do it right.  I was still studying method acting at the time, so I was in touch with my teacher about it when I was in England.  I would talk to her occasionally about what I was doing and she would just confirm things - that I was on the right track and stuff.  It was basically for me just about hanging in there and not getting fired by one of the best directors that we’ve ever had or will ever have, one of the best.  It was scary because of that and I hoped that if I just stuck with what I thought I knew best I would be okay...and it turned out alright.
You appeared twice on the New York based TV show "The Equalizer" in two very different roles – what are your memories of working on that show with the late great Edward Woodward?
VD: He was really sweet and I knew his son, not well but a little bit too.  Edward was just awesome and really great and I think it’s because of him that I did that show a second time - he was very helpful.  I was a full on young method actor at the time and I just finished "Full Metal Jacket" and that hadn’t come out yet and I still had the weight on.  I didn’t want to do any films until I took the weight off, so it was during that period when I was losing the weight when I did those two shows.  One was when I still had the weight on and one was when I had most of it off and right after that I started doing films again.  "The Equalizer" helped me pay my rent and kept my ability to play characters vibrant and ready for when I took all the weight off and felt confident to start doing other parts in films.  But it was a really good experience to be on those shows and work with Edward because I think of my show and the ten years I had and how long he did his show.  I think of the young actors, and there are a lot of them, that are in movies now that came onto my show and did their characters.  We gave them time and allowed them to do these characters unlike themselves.  It just made me remember what Edward was like for me as this young actor coming in who was doing this full out character, something they probably weren’t used to doing on TV at the time.  How patient he was and how lovely he was as a peer with such a positive attitude.

I loved that you played Dawson aka Thor in "Adventures in Babysitting."  Was it cool playing an early version of the comic book character?
VD: Yeah, it was really cool.  It’s still one of the only films my kids, the young ones, can see that I’ve done.  The others ones are just too either violent or weird for them to watch at a young age.  Of course, my twenty year-old daughter she can see anything, but my twelve year-old I still won't let him see certain things that I’ve done.  And I have a four year-old, so that’s the only ones that the little ones can see – but it was great.

I somewhat remember hearing a story about your audition for Mystic Pizza from the casting director Jane Jenkins...
VD: What did I do?

Something about how you had bowled her over, had made some interesting choices, something about getting down on one knee...?
VD: I have no idea what I did – I would love to know!

 You created one of the most memorable aliens ever in "Men In Black" – how much of that was on the page and how much did you bring to the part?
VD: None of the postures and voice and look was on the page.  The look was created by Rick Baker and we sat for hours and hours and hours and he would paint and re-paint and mold and re-mold.  And his guys would sculpt and re-sculpt – I was involved in that whole process with Rick at his shop in Los Angeles for the look of the character.  Then the posture, the way the character moved and the voices they really didn't know what I was going to do until I showed up.  I think everybody was a bit nervous about what I was doing until they saw it in the dailies.  But the great thing about Barry Sonnenfeld as a director is he gives his actors complete freedom and doesn’t get in the way of them.  So although I think I made him a little nervous, I think in the end he was extremely happy with it.  None of that was on the page – I had to be brave enough to bring it all in on my own.

You also played the iconic Orson Welles in Tim Burton’s "Ed Wood" – as an actor with a keen eye for attention to detail what kind of preparation did you do for that role?
VD: I didn't do enough.  I think I didn't have enough time to do it and I was doing another part while I was doing that.  So I made a short called "Five Minutes, Mr. Welles" and I’m happier with that version of Orson Welles then the one in Tim Burton’s film.  Although Tim put a Welles voice in there and made my performance even better then I actually executed it, so I thanked him for that.  But I’ve never been happy with my performance in that film and I made myself feel better about the whole Orson Welles trip by making a short on my own just to see that I could actually execute it correctly.  To prove it to myself – and I did.

Can you talk about working with the previously mentioned Tarsem Singh on "The Cell" and some of the inspirations behind that serial killer?
VD: There was a lot of talk we had about Carl Stargher.  Tarsem and I talked about the characters evolution and all these self-images of him in his own head and we made sense of it all in our heads so that we could be committed to it.  Whether it comes across in the film is another story, but so that we could be committed and know what direction we were going in we worked it out in our heads.  So I was involved in all that stuff with Tarsem and he’s such an amazing artist.  He steals a little from this, he steals a little from that and then creates his own thing.  He’s so amazing that way, so what you see in the film as far as my character is a mix of both Tarsem and my visions of why the character would look a certain way and behave a certain way.        

"The Salton Sea" - I have to know what inspired your crazed performance as Pooh-Bear?
VD: Just, you know, my head trying to think of things that could make the character more interesting.  D.J. Caruso directed it, who is another one of those directors that allows his actors a lot of freedom.  I talked to him beforehand and I told him my ideas and he loved them and he let me bring them in and do it.  Again, I didn't know it was going to work - you never know.  I guess I say this for younger actors out there, you have to be brave and you have to be ready to fail and that’s the only way you can be unqiue.  So when a director is confident enough in what they’re doing and they allow their actors to be brave and bring in stuff the more likely it’s going to work out okay.

I think it took people by surprise that you decided to do a TV series like "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" bringing a great character to life so frequently.  Was is at all difficult for you being an actor who is all about original work and characters to do a series with detailed work week after week?
VD: Yeah, but I think things are going to change in television.  I think with cable and everybody doing a lot less episodes then what we had to do, eventually network television is gonna have to get on board with everybody else.  Right now they’re still doing twenty-two, twenty-three episodes a season.  That would be the only thing negative about that show because working Dick Wolf was awesome.  Dick and Rene Balcer, the original showrunner on that show, the two of them gave me a lot of freedom to create this character and bring it in.  All of that was completely positive and we made the show what it was in those first four years and then it kind of rode this wave of what we made it after that until it petered out.  So the pro was Dick Wolf and working for him and the negative was the amount of episodes they expect you to do when you’re doing that kind of work is I think absurd.  I know that there are actors that are doing television now that are asking for less episodes and that’s why you see a lot of the best actors on cable.  It’s just too brutal to schedule – especially if you’re a family man or family woman.  If you’re family is as important to you as your career, there’s no way you can do that many episodes a season.  But having said that television is so great – it hones your chops as an actor.  I’m so much better an actor because of that show then I was before it.  
And finally what’s next that D’ Onofrio fans like myself can look forward to?
VD: A lot of the things I have coming up are gonna be pretty cool.  "The Tomb" and "Fire With Fire" and of course "Chained."  And I did this movie "The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman" with Shia LaBeouf and I really think that’s gonna be good.  I had a really good time with him, he’s an awesome and really dedicated actor and I think it’s gonna be a really good movie.  I think they’re all pretty interesting – you never know.

Auction: Acting Class taught by Vincent D'Onofrio

Learn from the best with an acting class taught By Vincent D'Onofrio for you and 3 friends.   ~  benefits the Woodstock Film Festival

Vincent D'Onofrio is known as an "actor's actor". The wide variety of roles he has played and the quality of his work have earned him a reputation as a versatile talent. He studied at the Actors Studio and the American Stanislavski Theatre. His debut on stage was in 1984 in the Broadway play "Open Admissions", followed by work in numerous other stage plays. As a film actor, D'Onofrio's career break came when he played a mentally unbalanced recruit in Full Metal Jacket (1987), directed by the renowned Stanley Kubrick. For this role D'Onofrio gained nearly 70 pounds. He had a major role in Dying Young (1991), and appeared prominently in the box-office smash Men in Black (1997) as the bad guy (Edgar "The Bug").

Other films of note in which he has appeared are Mystic Pizza (1988), JFK (1991), The Player (1992), Ed Wood (1994), The Cell (2000) and The Break-Up (2006). In 1996 D'Onofrio garnered critical acclaim along with co-star Renée Zellweger for The Whole Wide World (1996), which he helped produce. He also made a guest appearance in the TV series "Homicide: Life on the Street" (1993) in a 1997 episode, where he played an accident victim who could not be rescued and was destined to die. For this performance he won an Emmy nomination. In 2000 he both produced and starred in Steal This Movie (2000), a biopic of radical leader Abbie Hoffman.

In 2001 D'Onofrio took the role which has likely given him his greatest public recognition: Det. Robert Goren, the lead character in the TV series "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" (2001). Goren is based on Sherlock Holmes but, instead of relying upon physical evidence like Holmes, D'Onofrio's character focuses on psychology to identify the perpetrators, whom he often draws into confessing or yielding condemning evidence.

Review: D'Onofrio Steals the Show in 'Chained'

Right from the beginning the reality and grittiness of Chained, the new film by Jennifer Lynch, made me want to turn away. I wanted to stop watching and not because the movie was bad; it was so powerful and painfully true to life that I couldn’t help but be moved by it. It sickened me and at the same time I was permanently sucked inside the story. Based on a screenplay by Damian O’Donnell, Chained takes a typical tale of an abused child growing up to become a serial killer and makes it something that is Oscar worthy.

The world is jacked up. We all know this and we turn away from the news when we hear everyday of children going missing. We shy away from the fact that there are sadistic individuals that abduct, torture and kill young women. Very rarely do we have to see or hear the complete details of these people’s upbringings or what drove them to do what they do unless we pick up a book or watch a documentary.

Harnessing that sadistic nature is easy for some actors. For Vincent D’Onofrio, it seems to flow off him with such ease that it scares me. He is so incredibly brilliant in all of his roles, and as Bob he is no different. Bob is a cool collected cab driver that picks up a woman every day to rape and kill. When he picks up Sarah Fittler (Julia Ormond) one day, he has excess baggage to deal with – her nine-year-old son, Tim. Instead of killing the boy, he mentors him in a way only a psychopath can: keeping him chained to the wall. Renaming him Rabbit, Bob forces the child to clean up after he has his ‘taste of a woman’ each night.

Young actor Evan Bird is amazing as nine year old Tim/Rabbit. This kid only gets about twenty minutes of screen time, but his portrayal is strong and amazing. As Rabbit transitions to a teenager, Eamon Farren takes hold of the role and Bob decides it is time to educate him. The idea behind why Bob wants to make Rabbit his protégé is echoed through sickening flashbacks. We see why Bob is the way he is and are given hints as to how it will all end. Awkward, naïve and innocent; Farren’s ability to evoke sympathy for the character of Rabbit is uncanny.

The movie is filmed impeccably. The Blu-ray is crystal clear, bringing every detail into focus. Everything is set so perfectly, from the type of chairs used to the staging of how Rabbit and Bob sit to watch television, that it is easy to be engulfed in the story. There was never a moment where I thought I was watching a movie. Little things that D’Onofrio does throughout the film like a slight change in his speech pattern or just a simple action of patting his lips with a handkerchief are icing on the cake. The lighting and house set that we see the same angles of over and over and yet they do not not grow tiresome. Instead the claustrophobic aura grows more intense as the movie progresses. The darkness of the plot is accented with excessive amount of brown visually and the entire package is tied up with a jaw-dropping bow at the end.

Films are a way for us to see inside the evils of the world and keep a safe distance. Chained fully gives a well-rounded story that shows truth to the sick things that go on in this world. And it does a damn good job of it.

Actor Vincent D'Onofrio steps into, out of neuroses for 'Chained'

If for no other reason, actor Vincent D'Onofrio agreed to play the antagonist in “Chained” for the opportunity to work with writer/director Jennifer Chambers Lynch.

“Jennifer is a very hands-on director,” D'Onofrio said during a recent interview with “She is really good at being very close to the set and being very involved in every aspect. There is always a really good vibe on her set. Everything is kept very positive. And everything is kept moving forward. There definitely are not any moments where things are just standing still.”

In “Chained,” which will be available beginning tomorrow on Blu-ray and DVD at rental stores and rental outlets throughout the Valley, Evan Bird plays a boy who is kidnapped, along with his mother (Julia Ormond), by a psychopathic cab driver (Vincent D'Onofrio). His mother is murdered but he is kept as said psychopath's unwilling protégée. Year's later, the now-teenaged boy (Eamon Farren) is pressed to start his own homicidal spree.

“My character is stuck in some kind of neuroses,” D'Onofrio said. “He is delusional. He is psychotic. He is a narcissist. He has no empathy for other human beings. There is definitely some kind of kink in his way of gratifying himself sexually. It is a long laundry list full of issues that this guy has and he is surviving the only way he can – which is, unfortunately, horrific for everybody else.”

Fortunately for D'Onofrio, he is skilled enough as an actor to not only step into character quite easily but also step out of it – which seems to be an essential component for maintaining one's sanity when faced with a character like the one he portrays in “Chained.” D'Onofrio noted that such smooth transitions were not always the case for him, though.

“When I was younger, I used to carry my characters around with me 24/7,” D'Onofrio explained. “At my age and with the experience that I have had, I can move in and out of character whenever I feel like it and that makes my life much easier and makes my job more fun. I leave my characters at work. I have three kids and a lovely wife so when I am home, I am home.”

Having said that, D'Onofrio appreciated the opportunity to create and play a full-on character – especially seeing as he had not done so during the 10 years he starred on NBC's “Law & Order: Criminal Intent.” He learned from his experience working on “Chained” that he is still capable of trying to execute such an eccentric character and feeling satisfied doing so.

“It is all method acting,” explained D'Onofrio, who also spoke with last year to promote and discuss his role in the crime drama “Kill the Irishman.” “It is what I was trained to do and still train to do. It is all about getting in the zone and being committed to what you are doing.”

Shock Interview: Chained Director & Star Jennifer Lynch, Vincent D'Onofrio

 Shock Till You Drop recently spoke with Chained director Jennifer Chambers Lynch and the film’s star, Vincent D’Onofrio.

The pair gave us their thoughts on making a character driven horror film, moving away from the "torture porn" style that the film was originally written in, and Lynch fills us in on her upcoming documentary (about the making of Hisss) Despite the Gods.

Chained hits DVD and Blu-ray on Tuesday, October 2nd and tells the story of Bob (D’Onofrio), a cab-driving serial killer who stalks his prey on the city streets alongside his reluctant protégé Tim, who must make a life or death choice between following in Bob's footsteps or breaking free from his captor.

Jennifer Lynch

Shock Till You Drop: Where did the original idea for Chained come from? 
Jennifer Lynch: The original idea is from a screenplay written by a gentleman named Damian O’Donnell. His screenplay was optioned by the two producers, Lee Nelson and David Buelow. They sent it to me and I read it. I was riveted, but I was a bit stunned that they had sent it to me. It was written in the style of torture porn. I say that not out of disrespect for Damian, but because of what I am willing to do. Many people are good at making ‘torture porn’ films, but that’s not something that I’m interested in doing. So, one of the first questions I had for the producers was why they thought of me for this? They told me that I am known for doing thrillers with violent undertones and they wanted to see what I would do with the script. I took a pass at the script and removed what I thought to be too much gratuitous violence and took the approach of dealing with the characters and getting in to how the human monster is made. I wanted to get in to how much more terrifying that can be. I’m more terrified when the killer is similar to me. It scares me when I can feel what they have been through, and yet, they are still a monster. That’s what I worked on in my rewrite. It still maintained the same basic ideas as Damian’s script. I kept a tremendous amount of the same nuances but made the film a lot more about the two primary characters. 
Shock: So, in your treatment, you took the focus off of the gratuitous violence and moved toward a more character driven film?
Lynch: Yeah. I also made it less about killing. Many people die, but the treatment that I did focused less on the actual killing and more on the ramifications. 
Shock: This seems like a role that Vincent D’Onofrio was born to play. Was the original script written with him in mind?
Lynch: It wasn’t written with Vincent in mind. Once I had done my rewrite, though, I said “You know who could knock this out of the fuckin’ park?” Bless his heart. We sent him the script and he called me less than a day later. I think he and I are of the same school of thought, in that, if something scares us in the right way, we realize that we have something to learn by doing it. That’s what this project was for me and I think that is what playing Bob was for Vincent. He goes above and beyond the call of duty in this. It’s a perfect performance. 
Shock: This time around, did you have creative control to make Chained the film you wanted it to be? 
Lynch: I had a lot of control. I will say that, absolutely. I still want to do a director’s cut. Because the film was presold, both domestically, and internationally, I had not just producer’s notes, but distributors’ notes in my cut, as well. I wanted to call the film something else. I also had a few scenes that I wanted in the film that aren’t. Hopefully those scenes will be in the director’s cut. I had a tremendous amount of control, given the situation. I am grateful that I was able to tell the story, as it is. I feel very good about this cut, even though it doesn’t include certain things. I think it’s a very brave interpretation of the film I set out to make and of compromise in all the right ways. 

Interview: "Chained" director Jennifer Lynch

Starburst caught up with writer/director Jennifer Lynch to discuss her latest psychological horror film, Chained.

Starburst: Growing up being on the set of your father’s films must have been an inspiration for you to become a director. What was that like, and did you ever think of wanting to be something else?
Jennifer Lynch: I came from a very creative family. I always wanted to paint and write as a child. People looked at us as differently in that I had strange parents and had no money, yet we were a happy, loving family. I never considered directing until I was either on Dune or the Elephant Man. I would watch my father block his scenes then I would look at what he did studying them thinking how would I shoot the same scenes differently. What would I have rather been? If I won the lottery tomorrow, I would be a transcendental meditation therapist or auto mechanic.

The older cars are easier to work on.
I agree. Everything is so computerized now, I’m expecting to lift the hood like in the episode, A Feasibility Study from The Outer Limits when Joyce Van Patten sees the engine materializing.

Schrodinger’s Engine!
Very good! That’s funny!

With everything that is good in the world, there is a dark side to it also, yet your films represent that nothing is good or bad, that there is a grey area and nothing is really what it seems.
I couldn’t have said it better.

In Chained, Vincent D’Onofrio’s character Bob, is he an extension of Bob from Twin Peaks?
He’s his own fella. It didn’t occur to me that there was a connection and he’s never called by name in the film. I just needed a regular, common sounding name because we needed one for reference and Bob was pretty common. The terrifying thing about him is that he’s just this ordinary guy driving a taxi around on the surface, yet has this underlying subtlety of horror, serial killer dark side within him.

Where did you film the movie and how long was the shoot?
We shot in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada for fifteen days. They just lost their tax break, so the community got hit hard.  I used the same crew I did on Surveillance. They were an incredibly dedicated, hard working crew all the way down to the production assistants.
I’m a very blessed person for having such a great crew that worked for less pay then what they were worth. Film is a collaborative medium with everyone working towards the same goal. You get up in the morning, you go to work and you all work together to create a film with everyone having a common interest. They were a very brave and self-sacrificing crew.

What kind of cameras did you use?
The Red and Alexa. They’re an incredible gift to use on a film shoot. You can see what you immediately shot as opposed to the old 35mm film stock where you had to have it sent out and developed which took time.

What’s coming up next?
A Fall From Grace with Tim Roth, Vincent, Darryl Hannah and Willow Shields. It’s a detective film that takes place in St. Louis, Missouri.
