NHE host Scott Murphy talk to director G. Patrick Condon all about his debut feature “Incredible Violence.” A film we saw at Dead by Dawn 2019 and had mixed feelings about. And yes, that is something we get into which made for a very interesting interview (which begins at 3:37)!

Away from discussing what we did and did not like about “Incredible Violence,” Scott and Patrick chat about how the story developed, the casting of the picture and it’s unusual shoot. Also, the pictures meta nature, why he decided not to cast himself as himself (we told you it was meta!) and the divisive reactions the movie has received at festivals.

Patrick also tells us about how he got into film-making, the Canadian film scene and how he naturally gravitates towards cinema that splits opinion. Plus he gives us a taster of what he is up to next, a project which sounds very interesting indeed!

You can check out the trailer for “Incredible Violence” here

“Incredible Violence” is set for release in the UK on August 13th.

NHE host Scott Murphy chats to director Quarxx about his debut feature “All The Gods in the Sky.” Over the course of the interview (interview begins at 3:06), Quarxx tells us about the short film the feature is based on and the curious and somewhat surreal origins of how the initial story for that short came about. Quarxx also recounts the epic year-long search for his lead actress for that original short which led him to all sorts of unexpected places before landing on model turned actress Melanie Gaydos for the part. Due, at first, to her unique look borne of a consequence of a rare genetic disorder (ectodermal dysplasia) which prevents teeth, nails, pores, cartilage, and bones from developing. He also explains how notable Belgian actor Jean-Luc Couchard came to be onboard with the project.

Away from the film, Quarxx tells us about his background in painting and photography, how he got into filmmaking and how his artistic background bleeds into his cinematic work.

“All the Gods in the Sky” is currently in theaters in France and is set to be screened at the 19th Edition of NIFFF (Neuchâtel International Fantastique Film Festival)  in July.

That is not all as on top of counting down their top 3 Scott and Frank round up the rest of the features and give their final thoughts on this year Dead by Dawn.

Scott and Frank’s Joint Top 3 New Features:
