Icons of Fright Talks Westerns and More With Kill Or Be Killed Directors Justin Meeks & Duane Graves

Famous Monsters. Welcome to the Crypt! Let’s just jump right in; what inspired ya to create Kill Or Be Killed?

Justin Meeks. I have always had a special place in my heart for westerns, and a burning desire to make one. Sergio Leone, Clint Eastwood, Peckinpah, and others have brought their visions into my living room many times. So, after our film Wild Man Of The Navidad was sold at Tribeca, we had a meeting with the Weinstein Co. They were  interested in what was on the back burner, and we pitched them a rough idea for Kill Or Be Killed, untitled at the time. They seem to love it, and that inspired Duane »
