Horror-On-Sea 2018 Interview: Maria Lee Metheringham talks ‘Pumpkins’

  • Nerdly
Pumpkins is new 80′s style horror from writer and director Maria Lee Metheringham, which has been selected to play at the Horror-on-Sea Film Festival on Sunday 21st January. I got chance to ask Maria a few questions about making the film, her influences and adapting to changes during the shoot.

What can we expect from the film Pumpkins?

I would describe Pumpkins as an Ambient/Atmospheric horror. It combines elements of 80′s style classic horror films rolled into one feature. It’s not meant to be a gore film but it is meant to be visually creepy, eerie and suspenseful. Hopefully you will experience the old school settings along with an atmospheric journey.

What was your inspiration for writing the film Pumpkins?

It started off as a short to be included in another 80s style horror feature film we were writing but we liked the story so much we turned

Impressions: Curse of the Witching Tree

Do you remember having a favorite tree growing up? Maybe you shared your first kiss underneath its leafy branches, rested against its gnarled bark while reading your favorite paperbacks, or even used it as the safe spot in games of base tag with your friends. Well, the titular timber in Curse of the Witching Tree isn’t that type of tree, and in his feature film directing debut, James Crow effectively shows its horrifying historical roots.

Siblings Emma and Jake Thorson weren’t thrilled about moving to St. Jonas farm in the first place, but they find more to fear than feeding the pigs when the spirits of nine slain children begin to pop up on the grounds. Unfortunately for the teenager and her younger brother, their mom isn’t buying into their supernatural theories—she’s understandably preoccupied with the condition of her husband, who’s been in a

Official Trailer For Uwe Boll’s Zombie Massacre Is Here!

There is no hope! Why do we all hate Uwe Boll when he’s such a hillarious man? I mean, really, let’s give him a break, his latest Zombie Massacre looks quite cool. Except, it’s not all (sorry, man!) about Boll this time, because Marco Ristori and Luca Boni were also in charge. They directed, of course, while Boll served as a producer. Oh, who am I kidding – Boll stars in the whole thing as (take a seat, please!) the president of the Us! Ok, that’s it – I’m officialy in love with this man! In a zombie kind of way…

So, in case you’re not so familiar with this one, let me first inform you that this movie is an adaptation based on the Wii project developed by Benjamin Krotin’s 1988 Games.

Zombie Massacre story starts with a bacteriological weapon (developed, as usual, by the Us Government to create,

Latest Batch of Behind-the-Scenes Photos from Zombie Massacre

There are a lot of zombie movies coming out this year, but only one of them is directed by “Eaters: Rise of the Dead” masterminds Luca Boni and Marco Ristori. “Zombie Massacre”, the duo’s latest undead-related endeavor, is being proudly presented to the world by Uwe Boll. However, don’t let the “House of the Dead” director’s involvement dissuade you from checking this one out. “Eaters” was a pretty badass movie, and from the looks of things, their latest effort seems to have been fashioned from the same mold. That’s a good thing, by the way. The film is loosely based on the video game by 1988 Games, which is about a group of police officers who are charged with delivering a nuclear bomb into a zombie-infested city. The adaptation stars Christian Boeving, Jon Campling, Mike Mitchell, Gerry Shanahan, Daniel Vivian, and the lovely Tara Cardinal. You can

The Eagle Movie Review
Title: The Eagle Directed By: Kevin Macdonald Starring: Channing Tatum, Jamie Bell, Mark Strong, Donald Sutherland, Denis O’Hare, Jon Campling, Tahar Rahim Who better to star in a swords and sandals movie than Channing Tatum? He’s basically built for the role. However, just because he looks good in Roman soldier garb doesn’t mean he can act like one. In fact, after The Eagle, it’s impossible not to recognize the fact that Tatum might not be able to act at all. Then again, all the blame can’t fall on this film’s star. Not only is director Kevin Macdonald to blame for the incredible amount of missed opportunities, but so is writer Jeremy [...]
