The day this episode drops is the first day of the online Grimmfest, and here is our final selection of interviews with some of the creators behind its 2020 line-up.
Dan and Ian discuss the unique teen revenge thriller with a Native American spin, The Unhealer, talking to screen legend Lance Henriksen, director Martin Guigui, co-stars Adam Beach, Elijah Nelson, Kayla Carlson and Branscombe Richmond, co-writer/producer J Shawn Harris, and producer/actor Cristi Harris. Then writer/director Alejandro Ibeniz tells Ian why he remade classic Spanish horror film Would You Kill A Child? (not ‘Who Can Kill A Child?’, as Dan may erroneously state on the podcast) as the Amazon-set supernatural thriller Urubu. Finally, Ian talks to British writer/director Charlie Steeds about his blaxsploitation-homaging “Ku Klux cannibals” splatter-fest, Death Ranch.
Many thanks to all of our interviewees: Lance Henriksen, Cristi Harris, J Shawn Harris, Adam Beach, Martin Guigui, Elijah Nelson, Branscombe Richmond, Kayla Carlson, Alejandro Ibeniz, and Charlie Steeds.
