Hi, everyone! As promised, here is my second episode from the 24th Annual San Diego Latino Film Festival! Once again, it also marks the third year of Horrible Imaginings Film Festival partnering with them to bring the “Un Mundo Extraño” block of horror and fantastic cinema. If you missed my last interviews with the directors of Histeria and The Darkness, check those out here! This year promises to be our strongest showcase of dark films yet, and I am so excited to blast off with this tomorrow night! Just check out the trailer we put together:
Victor gives us a real look at where the idea came from for his first feature film, the potency of the fear of possession, the unique haunting quality of the 8mm format, the role religion plays in horror storytelling, the challenges of shooting on 8mm and the particular (sometimes hilarious) learning experiences he went through, and the particular qualities Latinos bring to horror cinema. I am very happy with this spoiler-free episode, so I hope you will listen, share, and seek out the scares in 1974!
