"This is all Daniel Hillyard's fault," said Wagner. "He asked if I thought we could create a story about serial killers, inhuman monsters, and a cult of sunflower farmers all trapped together inside an underground bunker. I mean, you have to do that, right?"

Hillyard added: "If you liked Plastic, then brace yourself! Vinyl is the sickest, most messed up, beautiful thing Doug and I have worked on to date. I'm biased, of course, but what can I say. I love our gore-baby."
