In a recent Britflicks.com podcast, Stuart Wright took the time to speak with Paddy Murphy, writer & director of The Perished about the film, ahead of it’s FrightFest premiere.
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.
