‘Tin Can’ Director Talks the Surprising Medieval Influences on His Sci-Fi Film [Watch]

Plus he discussed how they filmed in that tiny can.

Tin Can

In Dread’s latest film Tin Can, Fret, a parasitologist, wakes up in a tiny chamber with no recollection of how she got there. Desperate to create a cure for a plague ravaging humanity, she fights to escape and save the world. But of course, it won’t be that easy. Director Seth A. Smith’s film is a claustrophobic, uncomfortably prescient experience with a gorgeous, yet unsettling, vibe.

We spoke with Smith over Zoom about Tin Can, how medieval aesthetics inspired the film, slime mold, and more!

Watch the full interview:

Tin Can is now available on demand and comes to Blu-ray on September 6.
