Episode 45 - John McPhail

NHE host Scott Murphy chats to director John McPhail about his latest film, the cult smash “Anna and the Apocalypse.” A zom-rom-com-Xmas-musical that is already establishing itself as a seasonal favourite since it was released back in 2018.

In the interview (the interview begins at 2:02), we talk to John about the film’s ever-growing success, some of his top festival experiences with the movie. And the new deluxe Blu-ray release the film has received (where he tells about his excitement on doing his first directors commentary).

We also to John about the production of “Anna and the Apocalypse,” including; how he came on board to the project, the difficulties of shooting some of the musical sequences (not helped by the Scottish weather!), and his favourite songs from the film.

Away from “Anna and the Apocalypse” chat, we get to talk John about what his earliest horror memories are, what ranks among his horror favourites and he gives us his thoughts on the sudden upsurge in horror movies coming out of Scotland.
