Marcus Dunstan's The Neighbour, which screened at Frightfest and opens in the UK this weekend, is a dark horror tale which will make you question how much you know about the people next door. What will shock some viewers more than the horrors in the basement is the fact that it stars popular Us comedian Bill Engvall, better known for films like Delta Farce and Catching Faith. Let's just say that his performance here is a little bit different.
Bill was keen to talk about the film but, somewhere in the chain of people making the arrangements, there was confusion about time zone conversion. We ended up speaking just after 7am. Knowing that many actors are night owls, I apologised, but he laughed. "Honey, when you get to my age, this is sleeping in." He told me that he's really excited about this film because the role is.
