NHE host Scott Murphy chats to writer and director Rhett S. Butler about his debut film “Nefarious,” Jamaica’s first locally produced horror movie!
Over the course of the interview, we talk to Rhett extensively about the making of the picture. From how he first came up with the idea to the shoot of the film to the challenges of diving directly into feature filmmaking and some of the lengths he went to make the movie feel authentic.
Away from “Nefarious,” Rhett tells us about how he got into, the type of horror movies he responds to most and how he relates horror to music. Plus, Rhett talks about some of the cultural stereotypes surrounding Jamaica and how he hopes to show it in a different light.
