Here’s my very last batch of coverage for this year’s slate of Welcome to Blumhouse films for the film The Manor. In the film, Barbara Hershey plays a woman named Judith who suffers a stroke and moves into a historic nursing home where she becomes convinced a supernatural force is killing the residents there. The film’s now currently available to stream on Amazon Prime Video. I was able to have two conversations for this film (both of which are audio only).
The first conversation is with the film’s director and writer Axelle Carolyn, where we talk about the film’s grandmother-grandson in the relationship in the film and their love of horror, and being inspired by her own grandmother, as well as setting the film inside of a retirement home, shooting inside the titular manor, and more. Find that conversation right here:
For my other conversation about the film, I don’t talk with too many producers so I was able to learn a bit more about the ins and outs of producing by speaking with two of the film’s executive producers with Sandy King and Richard J. Bosner. I ask them what drew them about the project, their roles on the film and problem solving, how Sandy’s rolled all of her experience and applied everything she’s learned to producing, and finding the Manor in locating scouting. You can find that conversation right below:
