A Vintage Interview of Gus Trikonis

The interviewer asks Gus how the idea about the movie The Evil came from, to which he replies, the executive producer (the man with the money) had a script, hired a producer who called him, and asked whether he was interested in the project.

After getting the script, he had answered that if a significant rewrite were possible, he would be interested otherwise, he won't do it. 

This was the first horror genre movie; he had done in his career. The idea had fascinated him, he explains. 

Gus was asked about the stars of that movie to which he replied, the main building; the haunted house is the main star. 

It is a building in Las Vegas, New Mexico, built by the railroad and the house is an enormous one with 500 rooms and sulfur baths.
