Interview: Amanda Fuller Talks Collaborating with Simon Rumley and Transforming into a Fashionista

  • DailyDead
The latest from provocative filmmaker Simon Rumley, the obsession-fueled thriller Fashionista arrives today on VOD via Freestyle Digital Media. This writer was a big fan of the film after checking it out during last year’s Fantasia Film Festival, so I jumped at the chance to speak with the film’s star Amanda Fuller about her incredibly complex performance in her latest collaboration with Rumley (the duo previously had teamed together on Red, White & Blue).

During our interview, Fuller discussed the appeal of her character, April, a woman so driven by clothes and textiles that her mania begins to spill over into other aspects of her life, and the toll that the role took on her during production on Fashionista. Fuller also chatted about working with her co-stars Ethan Embry and Eric Balfour, collaborating with Rumley, and much more about her experiences making the film as well.

So great to speak with you today,

Frightfest Halloween 2017: ‘Beyond Skyline’ Review: Dir. Liam O’Donnell

Beyond Skyline review: The sequel to the marmite film, Skyline, has arrived, but after seven years, was it worth the wait?

Beyond Skyline review by Kat Hughes.

Beyond Skyline Review

2010 gave us a small low budget science-fiction thriller known as Skyline. It was a film subject to the marmite phenomena; you either loved it, or hated it. Grossing $78 million from a budget of $10-20 million meant that the prospect of a sequel seemed like a good idea. Sadly, the filmmaker seemed to be so consumed with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should.

Outside of the practical effects – which were stunning when you consider the modest scale of production – what made Skyline great was how unique it felt. Starring Eric Balfour and Scottie Thompson as Jarrod and Elaine respectively, the movie saw a group of friends try and survive a strange alien invasion.

Fantasia 2017 Review Round-Up: Better Watch Out and Fashionista

From July 13th through August 2nd, the 2017 Fantasia International Film Festival offered attendees over 400 short, experimental, and feature-length film projects, which is just a mind-blowing fact to me. Over the course of several weeks, I had the opportunity to check out two titles that had been garnering some buzz as of late on the festival circuit—Better Watch Out and Fashionista—and they both delivered very unique but equally thrilling viewing experiences for this writer.

Better Watch Out: A delightfully depraved holiday treat, Chris Peckover’s Better Watch Out is one of those rare genre experiences where the less you know going into it, the more satisfying the payoffs are in this biting and darkly comedic spin on the holiday classic Home Alone. But don’t expect toy car shenanigans, slippery ice-covered stairs, or anyone slapping their face in horror after using dad’s aftershave— screenwriter Zack Kahn has more wicked intentions for viewers,

Film Review: ‘Fashionista’

Film Review: ‘Fashionista’
Brit writer-director Simon Rumley made three well-reviewed but little-seen initial features before gaining wider notice with his first foray into quasi-horror terrain: 2006’s “The Living and the Dead,” a striking and harrowing tale of a schizophrenic man-child disastrously left to care for a sick elderly parent. He’s stayed in that territory since, his subsequent features and omnibus contributions related to horror in unconventional ways, linked by an intense interest in various forms of mental instability.

That recipe extends to “Fashionista,” his third successive effort shot in Austin, Texas. This twisty, compelling psychological study in thriller guise bears the closing dedication “Inspired by the films of Nicolas Roeg” — another filmmaker drawn toward scrambling chronology and other disorienting techniques.

There’s a sense of creeping disorder in the lives of 30-ish married couple April (Amanda Fuller, who was in Rumley’s “Red White & Blue”) and Eric (Ethan Embry). As the narrative advances by fits and starts, some

Fantasia 2017 Interview: Writer/Director Simon Rumley Takes Us Into the World of Fashionista

Throughout his career, Simon Rumley has consistently pushed himself as a filmmaker, and his latest cinematic endeavor, Fashionista, is yet another example of the writer/director evolving as a visual storyteller, as his unforgettable mystery thriller unconventionally explores the darker sides of desire and obsession. Featuring an outstanding ensemble including Amanda Fuller, Ethan Embry, Alex Essoe, and Eric Balfour (amongst others), Fashionista recently played as part of the Fantasia International Film Festival’s impressive 2017 slate.

Recently, Daily Dead spoke with Rumley about his approach to Fashionista, and he discussed how he viewed the project as his statement on consumerism and also chatted about reuniting with Fuller (who starred in Rumley’s Red, White & Blue) to take on her challenging role in this film. Rumley also talked about collaborating with Fashionista producer Tim League and how he managed to assemble the rest of his top-notch cast.

Fantasia 2017: Fashionista review: Dir. Simon Rumley (2017)

Fashionista Review: A young woman’s obsession with clothes take her to some very dark places in this twisty thriller from director Simon Rumley. Fashionista Review

Fashionista, a film currently on the festival circuit, offers a dark and tormented take on addiction. Rather than the usual alcohol or drugs, we have clothes. Clothes? You ask… yes, clothes. Many women, and men, have an unhealthy obsession with fashion, and whilst not seen to be as damaging as the like of drugs or drink, any addiction is bad for us.

April (Amanda Fuller) and her husband Eric (Ethan Embry) run a vintage clothing store. The job is perfect for April as she has a strong affinity for fashion, and a passion for clothing. As events unfold, which cause April to spiral, she finds herself using clothing as an extreme emotional crutch, the addiction taking her down a dangerous path with mysterious stranger
