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.

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.

NHE host Scott Murphy chats to directors Gregor Barclay and Colin Bell about their yet-to-be-released debut feature, the post-apocalyptic horror “Ribbons.” Over the course of the interview, Scott talks to Gregor and Colin about the challenges of filming a feature in four days which was also completely improvised. Not that was the only challenge as Gregor and Colin also tell us all about the other difficulties they faced some extreme weather particularly!
Since the interview took place, Gregor has informed us that while the movie has no official release date that the edit is nearly locked, they will be recording the score over the next few weeks and are aiming to hit festivals later on in the year.

NHE host Scott Murphy chats to director Matt Palmer about his debut feature “Calibre.” Over the course, this hour-long conversation Scott and Matt (Interview starts at 3:35) go into every facet of what it took to get “Calibre” on the screen and how it got scooped up by streaming giant Netflix. Also, Matt tells us how it felt to receive the Michael Powell Award, have his film tweeted about by horror legend Stephen King, as well as the overwhelmingly positive response, has received.
Away from “Calibre” Scott and Matt discuss one of Matt’s other roles as curator of “All Night Horror Madness,” a semi-regular horror movie marathon held at the Cameo cinema in this pod’s home city of Edinburgh.
