Max Thieriot Shares 25/8 Plot Details

Max Thieriot!The star of Wes Craven’s latest horror jaunt, Max Thieriot, spoke recently with STYD, where he cleared up what first appeared to be a very muddled plot of the upcoming 25/8.

Max revealed that Wes Craven may be reaching back to his Elm Street days, “It’s a little bit like Freddy Krueger-ish, but it’s more like a thriller than horror. I feel Nightmare on Elm Street is cool because it’s very smart. It’s not just killing. It has a whole back story and this craziness going on, and I think 25/8 has that, too.

It’s basically about this kid and his life, and when he’s born, his dad was a serial killer who had multiple personalities, and basically, as people start dying in the movie, I start getting multiple personalities, too, because I inherited it from my dad. It’s kind of like this crazy plot, but the whole time people are just switching in and out of personalities. You’re not really sure who’s killing who and it’s very cool

Sound good? Bad? Meh? Oh hell yeah? Sound off below!

Mike Phalin

Since 1997, Michael Patrick Phalin has been a contributing writer to various websites including Dread Central, iMockery, Bloody Disgusting and KrytenSyxx. During the early 1980s, Phalin's love of the movie industry was fueled by the VHS tapes he found during his time spent at the video rental store his mother worked at. Rather than attending a daycare regularly, young Michael would form a tower of tapes with interesting cover art and go watch each one, the very first of these being the original 'A Nightmare on Elm Street.' From that point he was hooked on horror and the process behind creating special effects. In his twenties, Mike met Steve 'Uncle Creepy' Barton and was soon aiding the horror website Dread Central with film reviews. As the site grew in popularity, Phalin soon started writing news stories and conducting interviews on a daily basis. After a few years, he decided to take a break from writing to focus on other opportunities. After moving to a beach community with his wife Michelle, both were cast to appear in the final season of A&E's home improvement show 'Fix This Yard' in 2013. This event rekindled Mike's love of the entertainment industry. Between the time he spends being with his family, Michael continues to contribute to Dread Central both with writing and photography. In his mid-thirties, Phalin took up oil painting after being inspired by an episode of Bob Ross. Pieces of his artwork and photography can be found on his Tumblr and official website.

    He sounds like he has no idea what the plot is. Craven must be a loon.
