Episode 37 – Carolina Hellsgård

00:00 / 00:46:37

NHE host Scott Murphy talks to director Carolina Hellsgård all about her latest feature, the fable-like zombie film “Endzeit (Ever After),” which is based on the graphic novel of the same name and provides a very different take on the over-saturated zombie sub-genre.

In the interview, you will hear what drew Carolina to the project, how it took an 18-month search to find her lead actresses, and the other movie influences she drew from in making this picture. We also chat with Carolina about the film’s unique look for a zombie film (rejecting the genre usual de-saturated colour palette for a more lush look) as well as its fairy tale feel.

Away from the film Carolina talks to us about German attitudes towards horror and why she thinks more directors from an arthouse background are being attracted to the horror genre. Plus, Carolina talks to us about her personal favourite horror movies and tells us a bit about her next film, “Sunburned.”
