1. Tell us about your film?
Norbert Keil: Replace is about the fear of ageing, and losing control over your own body. And then of course it’s also about a gorgeous woman who gets a nasty skin disease and becomes something like a skin vampire. Come find out – and tell me what you think!
2. How did you get into making horror movies?
Norbert Keil: Horror films take you to the boderlines of the human existence, and sometimes beyond, they dive into psychological depths and take you on ecstatic highs. As a storyteller, that‘s like being handed the ultimate toolbox to engage your audience. How can you resist?
3. What film would you love to see screened at FrightFest and why?
Norbert Keil: Robert Wise’s The Haunting. Scares the hell out of me each time I watch it and deserves to be on a the big screen. And I keep meeting people who never saw it – that needs to be changed!
4. If you could create your own award to give at the FrightFest, what would it be and why?
Norbert Keil: There could an Awesomeness-Award – one that takes into account everything that the moviemakers had at their disposal and then takes a look at what they made within those restrictions and then judge how awesome it is. Bad Taste totally would have won that award.
5. If your life was made into a horror film, what would it be called and who would play the starring role?
Norbert Keil: The only way you could make my life into a horror film is to add a whole lot of made-up stuff to it. But here is one idea: young kid wants to be a filmmaker – and raises a demon to strike a deal. Of course the demon cheats him and now everything the kid (by now a young man) puts into a movie becomes a reality… actually sounds pretty much like a Twilight Zone episode.
