This week our I had the great privilege to go on one of my ALL-TIME favourite podcasts, Strong Language and Violent Scenes podcast – hosted by the wonderful, charming and talented Andy Stewart and Mitch Bain. This was a dream come true to me as such a long time fan of the show.
I happen to be a great lover of Podcasts. My favourites include Shock Waves, Strong Language & Violent Scenes, Fear Initiative, Film Riot Podcast and of course, Adam Green, Joe Lynch and Dr. Arwen over on The Movie Crypt.
Just wanted to drop the news here that has been released elsewhere on sites like Dread Central & Bloody Disgusting. The Perished, our second feature film and my second as director, will have it’s WORLD PREMIERE at Arrow Video FrightFest on Monday the 26th of August 2019.
Going into Frightfest 2018, I was beyond excited to see the new film from French Canadian director trio, RKSS – Road Kill Super Stars – Individually known as François Simard, Anouk Whissell & Yoann-Karl Whissell. The team was behind one of my favourite films of 2015, the phenomenal Turbo Kid. I won’t say that Summer of ’84, their follow up, is a bad film. For me, it just felt a little bit like they were losing their voice amid the studio system.
Frightfest 2018 opened with a relatively divisive film by the super talented swiss-army knife of film-making that is Jenn Wexler. The Ranger is a love letter to punk culture and a coming of age story that uses the metaphor of standing up to authority in a fresh and meaningful way.
