Mary Kay McBrayer interviews other creatives

TALK TO ME danny and michael philippou_edited.jpg

If you see a horror film as creative as Danny and Michael Philippou’s Talk to Me (2023), you start to list the questions you’ll ask if at any moment you get the chance (logistics of particularly visceral practical effects, or how they got to the end product of a particularly effective scene). And when you do get the chance, you hope to God the creators are as easy to talk to and personable as the Philippous.

Brothers Danny and Michael Philippou set out to make a coming-of-age horror film that utilized two key concepts: first, teenagers using demon possession to get high… and second, what happens when the other kids at the party videotape it. 

The new historical drama film Chevalier is inspired by the incredible true story of composer Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges. The illegitimate son of an African slave and a French plantation owner, Bologne (played by Kelvin Harrison Jr.) rises to improbable heights in French society as a celebrated violinist-composer and fencer, complete with an ill-fated love affair and a falling out with Marie Antoinette (Lucy Boynton) and her court.

Director Nathalie Biancheri sat down with FANGORIA to talk about authenticity among species in her sophomore film WOLF. WOLF follows the story of Jacob (George MacKay) as he navigates a clinic for people with species dysphoria and the psychologist/zookeeper who torments them with cognitive-behavioral treatment.

Neon Splatter Q&A: FREAKY combines the premises of FRIDAY THE 13TH with FREAKY FRIDAY, in which the giant strongman serial killer The Butcher (Vince Vaughn) tries to murder sweet, dorky, bereaved high-school student, Millie (Kathryn Newton) with an ancient dagger that curses them to live in each other’s bodies. It even won the Breaking Barriers Lizzie Award at the culminating ceremony Saturday night—which, by the way, is the dopest trophy you’ll ever see.
