NHE host Scott Murphy chats to writer/director Lodewijk Crijns about his latest film “Tailgate” (AKA Bumperkleef). A road-rage thriller which went down a storm at last year’s October edition of FrightFest.
In the interview (the interview begins at 1:36) we talk to Lodewijk why he decided to make a horror film (his background is comedy/drama), the movies that influences his film and his surprise at just how similar the plot of recent Russell Crowe vehicle “Unhinged” is to his film (For your information “Tailgate” was filmed first). Plus, we get into how he accomplished the film’s car chase sequences.
Elsewhere in the interview, Lodewijk tells us about how he assembled the cast, how he developed the Evil Ed character and a bit about the festival journey which saw the film play all over the world including at renowned genre festival Stiges.
