Horrortown’s Last Great Magic Trick With Adam Robitel

Throughout the month of October, Audiences Everywhere will be publishing a series of interviews with renowned horror directors in which we will discuss current and upcoming films, and also get the artists’ take on the contemporary horror landscape which we’ve dubbed Horrortown. Next up, Adam Robitel, filmmaker behind the critically acclaimed The Taking of Deborah Logan and co-writer of the upcoming Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension.  Let me tell you a secret: Adam Robitel is a magician. He may not carry around a card that says so, and if asked he’d probably humbly admit that he’s more of an apprentice, but...

Stumbling Into the Genre: Patrick Brice Talks Creep

With just two actors, one handheld camera, and a deceptively simple story, Creep is a deliciously dark horror film with hints of black comedy and an ending you’ll be talking about for weeks. Creep is streaming on Netflix, and it’s 82 minutes of pure tension and uncomfortable laughs. I urge you to check it out. I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Patrick Brice, who directed, co-wrote, and acted in Creep. I hope you’ll enjoy the conversation as much as I did: … Schyler Martin (Audiences Everywhere): What kind of film did you set out to make with...

A Found Footage Revolution: An Interview With Adrian Tofei

I have watched a lot of horror films this past month. I have watched a lot of horror trailers, too.

But nothing I have watched has left me feeling quite so chilled and uncomfortable as the trailer for Be My Cat: A Film for Anne, which I stumbled upon completely by chance. After...

Redefining Horrortown With Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead

Throughout the month of October, Audiences Everywhere will be publishing a series of interviews with renowned horror directors in which we will discuss current and upcoming films, and also get the artists’ take on the contemporary horror landscape. First up, Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, the filmmakers behind the critically acclaimed film Spring.  I am a huge fan of the complex horror novel House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski. For a long time, like most of the book’s fans, I thought the book was unfilmable. I cringed at the idea of an attempted adaptation. Then, I watched 2012’s...

A Hero with Balls: An Interview with Bianca Bradey

From the start of our conversation, it’s pretty clear that Bianca Bradey is in good spirits. It’s early in the morning, the weather is nice, and she laughs as she recalls going out the night before. This is a huge relief for me. Going into this conversation less than a week from my introduction to Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead, the delightful zombie film in which Bianca stars, I am in some ways more intimidated by my interview subject than I have ever been. My nervousness is informed by Bianca’s onscreen performance as Brooke, a tough-as-nails zombie apocalypse survivor....
