Further Information


Miguel Cantone is a storyteller, constantly looking for new methods to perfect his vision. A Spaniard by birth, Miguel was fascinated by a troupe of traveling actors and joined, eventually finding himself in Stuart England.

However, it begins a series of horror films, adapting gothic novels of the 17th century.

  • "Ah, yes, Miguelito. Hmm. You know we worked together briefly, a long time ago in England? He billed himself as something of a playwright, and being generous by nature I was only too happy to lend him my stage presence but, my God, the man was just impossible to work with. I can understand not wanting to compromise your vision, but rigidity really is the enemy of creativity, isn't it? And theater especially is a collaborative process and he just didn't appreciate how best to use me, if you get my meaning. Anyway, like I said that was long ago and now I understand he's making movies! How wonderful for him. I really do think that's a much better fit for his abilities. Now he can take as much time and as many takes as needed to create something watchable. I am truly, marvelously happy for him, just elated." - Zoltan Vancura
  • "Such sad words from a sad artist who can't even get his artists to follow his vision. At least my muses believe in my art enough to follow my instruction. Though, I suppose there is a reason some of us successfully rule and others sit to the side." - Fiona Bizet

  • "...yes, Elder Cantone and I are acquainted. As a matter of fact, he was quite fond of showing me kindness when everyone thought I was a Caitiff. You can, knowing what everybody knows now, just fucking imagine why that's true. Change of subject?" - Dr. Marcel Trevisani
  • "I just got here you puffed-up walnut!" - "Aurelia Jones", Sabbat infiltrator impersonating a Toreador during the Second Coalition Summit in San Francisco.
