While at the 2019 SXSW Film Festival last week, Daily Dead had the opportunity to catch up with writer/director Richard Bates Jr.
as well as co-stars Robert Patrick
and Amanda Crew
to talk about their darkly comedic battle for the ages, Tone-Deaf
(you can read my review Here). The film follows millennial Olive (Crew) as she sets out for a quick vacation away from it all, renting a house from the prickly homeowner Harvey (Patrick), who decides he’s over tolerating younger generations and unleashes his rage on his unsuspecting tenant.
During our interview, the trio discussed bringing the film to SXSW as part of their Midnighter series, the inspiration behind the story of Tone-Deaf
, digging into these wildly different characters, and more.
So, how do you feel now that Tone-Deaf is out in the world finally?
Richard Bates Jr.: I was so happy with how it went. Because
