Episode 49 – Graham Hughes


Episode 49 – Graham Hughes

00:00 / 00:57:26

NHE host Scott Murphy chats to writer/director/actor Graham Hughes about his latest feature “Death of Vlogger.” A movie which takes a unique spin on the found-footage genre and had the rare honour of playing both Frightfest’s (London and Glasgow).

In the interview (interview begins at 2:55), we talk to Graham about how this film came out of the ashes of another project, and despite the number of roles he had on the picture how he conversely found it one of his more relaxing filmmaking experiences. We also get into the themes of the film, in particular the phenomenon of social media shaming.

Plus Graham tells us about his film festival experiences, his thoughts on the upsurge in Scottish horror films, and what he is up to next.

Episode 44 – Staten Cousin Roe


Episode 44 – Staten Cousin Roe

00:00 / 00:54:38

EDIT: In the intro, I mistakenly talk about the birth of Staten’s daughter coinciding with the film’s premiere. Staten and his wife (and star of the film) Poppy actually welcomed in a baby boy on the day of the premiere. Apologies to both.

NHE host Scott Murphy chats to writer/director Staten Cousins Roe about his debut feature “A Serial Killer’s Guide to Life.” A blackly comic road trip horror which involves murder, mayhem, and the quest for self-enlightenment.

In the interview (the interview begins at 2:00), Staten talks about the inspiration behind the film, how he found the leap from short to feature film making and how his experience as an actor helped him work with others. He also goes into what other movies influenced him during the making of the film and why he thinks the comparison to “Sightseers” is a bit off the mark.

Staten also talks to us about his festival experiences, an awkward screening with the in-laws, and whether there is something in the Brighton water given the horror it has produced in recent times with likes of himself, Ben Wheatley and Corin Hardy.

Episode 30 – G. Patrick Condon Interview

00:00 / 01:17:29

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!

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