NHE host Scott Murphy chats to director and cinematographer Eric Liberacki about his feature debut the retro-slasher “The Lurker.” In an interview that was recorded ahead of its World Premiere at Cinepocalpyse. And particularly given the festival is in Eric’s hometown of Chicago we talk a little about his excitement of premiering the movie there.
Also, over the course of the interview, we talk to Eric extensively about the production of “The Lurker.” From how he came on board as director. To the casting of the likes of Scout Taylor Compton (Laurie Strode in Rob Zombie’s Halloween movies) and Naomi Grossman (Pepper in American Horror Story). And some of the challenges of the shoot.
Plus there are loads more in there about Eric’s favourite slashers, how he got into horror himself, how he split his time as a filmmaker and a film lecturer and a whole lot more besides.
NHE host Scott Murphy chats to writer/director/actor and pop-up bar owner Graham Skipper about a range of his projects including his directorial effort “Sequence Break”, one of his latest acting roles in Joe Begos’s “Bliss” and his horror themed bar the Rated R Speakeasy.
Over the course, we particularly deep delve into his “Sequence Break” in terms of how he first got inspired to write/direct the film, the casting of picture (including why he didn’t cast himself), the shoot of the film and also how the deal with Shudder came about.
That is not all as we also chat to Graham about how he came to be involved in the LA horror scene, his thoughts on the current horror landscape and what it was like to work with horror royalty like Barbara Crampton.

NHE host Scott Murphy chats to director Chelsea Stardust about her debut feature “All That We Destroy” AND her second feature “Satanic Panic”, both of which premiered within weeks of each other. Over the course of the interview (interview begins at 2:00), Chelsea talks us through how exactly she managed her schedule given they overlap of the the two projects as well as the development, casting and shoot of each film. Plus how she came to be onboard both pictures and her excitement at “Satanic Panic” being produced by the freshly resurrected Fangoria and scripted by Grady Hendrix (Paperbacks From Hell)!
We also chat to Chelsea about her long filmmaking apprenticeship working as an assistant to the likes of Ivan Reitman, Judd Apatow and horror mega-producer Jason Blum (who she worked alongside for 5 years) before she got her directing break through Crypt TV. Also, we hear from Chelsea if it was at all weird having her debut produced by her former employer Blumhouse!
