Exclusive Video Interview: Madison Iseman and Israel Broussard On FEAR OF RAIN

It isn’t every day that we get to sit down and have a video call with Hollywood stars. But alas, that’s exactly what happened. Madison Iseman (Anabelle Comes Home) and Israel Broussard (Happy Death Day) joined me to discuss their new film, Fear of Rain.

Written and directed by Castille Landon, the film touches on mental health, the effects of schizophrenia on guardians and sufferers, and of course, teenage love. We talk about that and more with this dynamic duo, including elementary school shelters and how to escape Jumanji. It’s a wild ride, so strap in!

About Fear of Rain

For teenager Rain Burroughs (Madison Iseman), a diagnosis with schizophrenia means that every day is a struggle as she tries to figure out which of the disturbing images, harrowing voices, and traumatic feelings she experiences are real and which are all in her mind.

But when Rain insists against her parents’ (Katherine Heigl and Harry Connick Jr.) advice that the shadows and cries from her neighbor’s attic are hiding a dark secret, she enlists help from Caleb (Israel Broussard), the charmingly awkward new boy at school — who himself may not be real.

Written and directed by Castille Landon (After We Fell, After Ever Happy), Fear of Rain takes viewers inside Rain’s mind as she confronts the frightening hallucinations of her imagination to determine whether there is real horror hiding next door.

Feel free to check out the trailer above. The film comes out on February 12th, just a couple of days away. Though Fear of Rain centers on Madison Iseman’s Rain and Caleb, Katherine Heigl’s role as Rain’s mom brought a lot of joy to my heart. I’m a long-time Roswell fan, so to see her come back to a genre role makes me quite happy.
