Dan Fogler: Essentially, "Moon Lake" is my homage to everything I loved; like "Heavy Metal" magazine -- or "Heavy Metal" the movie, really. When I watched "Heavy Metal" the movie when I was a kid, I loved it. It was like an anthology with these different stories, but it also has this one throughline, which is the Locknar, which is that evil orb that narrates and goes through the whole thing. And I thought, "Man, I want to go and do something like that." And so, "Moon Lake" is like Hitchcock on acid meets "Tales from the Crypt" meets "Amazing Stories," you know?
It's an homage to everything I loved as a kid, really. It's this place that is up by Saskatchewan which is on the border of America and Canada and it's like the island in "Lost" in the sense that it's displaced in time. It's like limbo, you get stuck there and you never get out, you spend a lot of time trying to get out, and it keeps pulling you back in.
But it's got so many different crossovers that its hysterical. You have -- like Amelia Earhart went through the Bermuda Triangle and ended up at Moon Lake. The magic bullet that was used to get JFK was created at Moon Lake. Sasquatch is there fighting Godzilla, fucking Dracula, Michael Jackson, Zombie Elvis, they're all at Moon Lake and the place has been there since the beginning of time. You can imagine how many stories you can tell: from prehistoric zombie dinosaur stories to aliens to futuristic crazy wild robotic tales. And it's all narrated by this guy who is The Man in the Moon. Imagine Hitchcock on acid stuck inside the moon, forced to tell these tales that have happened at Moon Lake. Everything is connected, all conspiracies run through there. Um, that's the idea.
