With Halloween quickly approaching we decided this episode to focus on horror and all the juicy things that come along with it. We couldn't think of two better folks to sit with then Glenn McQuaid (I Sell The Dead), who, you may recall, talked to us last Halloween, and Larry Fessenden (Wendigo, The Last Winter), one of the icons in indie horror.
Like some major names in today's horror scene—Ti West (The House of the Devil, The Sacrament), Jim Mickle (Stake Land, We Are What We Are)—McQuaid is another who got his break thanks to Fessenden and his company, Glass Eye Pix. The two have continued to collaborate with the spooky audio plays Tales From Beyond The Pale.
Chatting about a range of topics including:
-Their love of anthology films
-Larry on the ethos of Glass Eye Pix
-The struggles of the indie horror maker (and why Kickstarter isn't for them)
-Glenn's bisexual severed hand project
-Larry's attempt to remake The Orphanage w/ Guillermo del Toro
-Glenn and Larry's experiences working with Sean Young
-The best horror movies to watch this Halloween
Larry and Glenn were also nice enough to give us two excerpts from Tales From Beyond The Pale stories for your enjoyment, along with a tease of what they have in store for Season 3 of the show.
Sit back and enjoy the conversation. And if you're in L.A., check out Tales From Beyond The Pale LIVE at Spectrefest on Oct 29.
Here's a little taste of the live Tales experience:
