Eli Roth’s latest collaborator/muse duo Nicolas Lopez and Lorenza Izzo are, if anything, even more enthusiastic than he is. Styling himself as a maverick film-maker, Lopez is known for oddball comedies in his native Chile, and is making his English-language debut with Aftershock, based on the events of the 2010 Chilean earthquake that he personally lived through.

Meanwhile, Izzo has earned Eli Roth’s praise for her role in his upcoming Netflix TV show Hemlock Grove, and is set for bloody shenanigans in Aftershock and The Green Inferno.

The duo are bubbly, prone to good-natured joking, and have a lot to say about their love of genre movies.

Q1: Nicolas, I understand you started writing at quite a young age…

Nicolas Lopez: Yeah.

Q1: And then you created your own website. How did you go from that to then becoming a film director?

Nl: Ummmmm…..well. »
