Five FrightFest Facts From Owen Long director of Seeds

1. Tell us about your film?
Seeds is a psychosexual fairytale about battling inner demons and hidden desires. It explores the human struggle with right and wrong and the often blurry line that separates love and weakness and a man from a monster. Seeds investigates the idea of damnation, redemption and that there is a presence of order by a governing energy in all things.

2. How did you get into making horror movies?
As far back as I can recall – what lay beneath the bed, waiting in the closet, down the cellar stairs, invoked a playful fear that fed my imagination. Monsters, alien creatures from galaxies far away to beasts from beyond the realm of reality excited my bubbling adolescent curiosity. I got a taste at an early age to step into moviemaking in the horror genre by working as an extra on George Romero’s, “Dawn of the Living Dead,” and it must have gotten under my skin – laying seeds for what I wanted to do later on in life;)

3. What film would you love to see screened at FrightFest and why?
“The Brood” by David Cronenberg. One of the most unsettling portrayals of giving birth to something beyond one’s control.

4. If you could create your own award to give at the FrightFest, what would it be and why?
“You haven’t seen this f’n film before!” Originality is undervalued.

5. If your life was made into a horror film, what would it be called and who would play the starring role?
“Creature of Love”. James Spader, or if he’s not available – my brother, Trevor Long;)
