This week (Wednesday 7th – Sunday 11th October) it’s the online edition of the 12th annual Grimmfest, and here’s the second of our three special preview episodes (the third will be released in time for the start of this fantastic film festival on Wednesday).
Regular host Dan is joined by guest host Ian Winterton for preview discussions of three of the festival’s film highlights. Ian interviews some key talents behind the splattery and nostalgic period-set teen monster flick They Reach (co-writer/director Sylas Dall, co-writer/producer Bry Troyer and star Mary Madeline Roe) and Ruben Pla, director of The Horror Crowd, a documentary on the LA horror filmmaking community. Finally, Dan joins Ian and writer/director Ryan Kruger and producer James C Williamson to talk about the grimy and hallucinatory Fried Barry, a “road movie on foot” around Cape Town through the eyes of an alien visitor.
Many thanks to our interviewees Sylas Dall, Bry Troyer, Mary Madeline Roe, Ruben Pla, Ryan Kruger and James C Williamson.
