Mendez first had success at 23 when his feature debut, "Killers," was accepted into the Sundance Film Festival.
"I like to think that every story is different and you’re just trying to bring out whatever elements are necessary to tell it. But, I tend to lean naturally towards the goofy, so, with this film and "Convent", are more my voice , which is more horror comedy. I mix it up a bit, but, I do like to make people laugh, and I do like to kill people." - from www.horrornews.net, January 8, 2014
