Last week I posted the first part of my Game Night with the team behind the film "Murder Bury Win," featuring writer and director Michael Lovan, as well as the core trio of actors in Mikelen Walker as Chris, Erich Lane as Adam and Henry Alexander Kelly as Barrett. We played some Hangman in that [...]
The new comedy/thriller The Carnivores follows Alice (Tallie Medel) and Bret (Lindsay Burdge) as their dog, Harvie, is dying and is ruining everything, as there’s a sense for Alice that Bret cares more about the dog than her. These clouds of self-doubt start to cloud this dynamic, in a strange dark comedy where words won’t adequately describe the experience of the film. And of course, there’s a lot of ground beef… I was able to speak with the writer and director of the film, Caleb Michael Johnson, through an e-mail exchange.
Here’s a special episode of my podcast The Filmcraziest Show, where I was joined by the team behind the new dark comedy Murder Bury Win, including writer and director Michael Lovan, as well as the core cast of the film in Mikelen Walker as Chris, Erich Lane as Adam and Henry Alexander as Barrett. The [...]
For my second interview in my coverage of Reboot Camp, my guests for today’s episode of The Filmcraziest Show are the stars of the film, David Lipper and Keli Price. In the conversation, we discuss creating the character of Gordon St. Pierre and what it was like for David playing two characters, we discuss their producer roles and what it was like getting all these people on board, the comedy of the film and the struggle of keeping a straight face, the Nicole Aniston slide, and Keli Price getting in the filmmaker headspace to play Danny.
Reboot Camp is a mockumentary about a pair of brothers who start a fake self-help group to show how easy it is to con people into believing absolutely anything. Instead, the camp itself turns into a cult. I was able to speak with director and writer Ivo Raza about the project in this episode, as we talk about the research, love bombing, how they got the cameos for the film (like David Koechner), and angry yoga.
On this episode of The Filmcraziest Show, I was able to speak with Ryder McLaughlin, Nico Hiraga and Aramis Hudson, the stars of the new film North Hollywood. The film follows Ryder’s character Michael as he follows his dream of becoming a pro skater, which very much goes against what his father (Vince Vaughn) wants. All the while, he starts to drift away from his childhood best friends Jay (Nico Hiraga) and Adolf (Aramis Hudson).
The film offers a realistic and fun look at skateboarding culture, and the film’s directed by Mikey Alfred (a producer on Mid90s) in his directorial debut. Mikey is the founder of popular skate company Illegal Civ, which co-produces this film (and it also has Pharrell Williams and Noah Centineo as producers). The film also stars Vince Vaughn, Miranda Cosgrove, and Blake Anderson.
On today’s episode of The Filmcraziest Show, I was able to speak with Karl Holt – the star, writer and director – about his new indie horror film, Benny Loves You, about a man named Jack (Holt) who throws out his beloved plush from when he was a child in an effort to move on with his life and “grow up” after the gnarly death of his parents. This proves to be a costly mistake as Benny comes to life after being abandoned, and starts taking matters of aggression into his own plush hands and causing problems for Jack, all in a film that feels inspired by parts Child’s Play, part Gremlins, and part The Muppets all in one.
