Horror Favourites – Orson Oblowitz

Hell is Where the Home is got its World Premiere at this years FrightFest and we where lucky enough to be able to ask its director Orson Oblowitz the most important question of all, what is his favourite scary movie.

Hell is Where the Home is sees two dysfunctional couples rent a modern luxury desert home for the weekend hoping to sort out their messed-up lives. Just as they are about to settle in for a fun night, a neighbour turns up at their front door saying she has car trouble. And that’s when the murderous trouble really starts. Because without knowing it, the four friends have landed slap-bang in the wrong violent place at precisely the wrong bloody time. Hopefully your nerves of steel will hold for one of the most stylish, atmospheric and terror-filled home invasion horrors of them all.

Hell is Where the Home played as an official selection at Germany’s Fantasy Film Fest and we will hopefully have more news on its further release soon.

Now over to Orson and his favorite horror film:

“My “favorite horror film” is mercurial because it really depends on what I’m digging into at any given moment. I’d say the film that I always end up coming back to though is Suspiria by Dario Argento. On a purely visual level, the film is cinematic candy. It’s like watching synapses firing in the brain. The primary color palette of reds and blues inspired me a lot on Hell Is Where The Home Is. Then just the descent into madness Jessica Harper goes on is mesmerizing, not to mention the extremely well executed acts of violence. In the end, the aspect of the film which always sticks with me, is the iconic Goblin score. It just pushes you into the void and spits you out onto the other side. It’s a masterpiece.”
