First Look at Excision Director Richard Bates Jr.'s Trash Fire [Clip]

16 March 2016 11:53 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Writer/director Richard Bates Jr. emerged on the horror scene a few years ago with the release of his full length feature Excision (review) which he followed up with last year's wide release of Suburban Gothic. I haven't totally loved either of his films but they've both shown sharp wit and a vague promise that Bates Jr. would stick the landing and deliver a movie that completely worked for me. Trash Fire might just be that movie.

The Sundance midnighter stars small-screen star Adrian Grenier as Owen, a guy who returns home with his pregnant girlfriend and finds himself dealing with the family dysfunction which has haunted him his entire life.

Sundance 2016 Review: Trash Fire is a Stinging Portrait of Family Dysfunction at its Bleakest

5 February 2016 12:12 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

In less than ten years, filmmaker Richard Bates Jr. has made quite the impact in the world of independent horror. His short film, Excision, led to a stunning 2012 feature film version, his follow-up, Suburban Gothic, was a blistering, supernaturally-infused small-town yarn and with his latest movie, Trash Fire, Bates Jr. takes on adulthood and dysfunctional families.

For the most part, Trash Fire succeeds as a caustic tale of obsession, forgiveness, and the trappings of modern religion, although admittedly things start off a bit rough with the introduction of Owen (Adrian Grenier). We learn almost immediately that Owen is a complete asshole, as he abrasively chats with his therapist (Sally Kirkland) about his past and his general disdain for everyone and everything. Owen’s destructive nature is spilling over into his relationship with longtime girlfriend Isabel (Angela Trimbur), but once she reveals that she’s pregnant, Owen decides he’s ready »

Sundance 2016 Interview: Richard Bates Jr. and AnnaLynne McCord Talk Trash Fire

27 January 2016 10:23 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Writer/director Richard Bates Jr. and AnnaLynne McCord first came together several years ago to create Excision—the haunting tale of a young woman’s obsession with surgery that takes a tragic turn—which premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. The duo have returned to Park City this year for their latest collaboration, Trash Fire, which recently celebrated its debut as part of Sundance’s stellar Midnight selections.

Trash Fire follows Owen (Adrian Grenier), a troubled 20-something who wants to reconnect with his family—and his sister Pearl (McCord) in particular—after he learns some life-altering news from his longtime girlfriend (Angela Trimbur) and realizes he needs to atone for his past mistakes.

Daily Dead had the opportunity to catch up with both Bates Jr. and McCord during the festival to hear more about their experiences collaborating together on this personal tale of redemption and dealing with your demons. Bates Jr. »
