The Twentieth FrightFest is here so obviously our exclusive interview feature Five FrightFest Facts From… is back with a vengeance. Below we hear from Macarena García Lenzi & Martín Blousson directors of ROCK, PAPER AND SCISSORS and you can read more FrightFest Facts from 2019 and beyond by clicking HERE.
1. Tell us about your film?
Yet another unpleasant family tragedy.
2. How did you get into making horror movies?
What do you mean by horror? Ours is a feel good movie, full of hope and with a guinea pig.
3. What film would you love to see screened at FrightFest and why?
Who can kill a child, from Ibáñez Serrador. Because it teaches children to make the best piñata ever.
4. If you could create your own award to give at the FrightFest, what would it be and why?
The “are you sure it was recording?” Prize dedicated to practical FX. I have absolutely nothing against post production VFX but that tension of a blood explosion in a one and only possible shot that has to fall on the right place, with the correct strength and causing a precise splat, while also looking realistic and beautiful on the screen… That deserves a prize, even if it eventually doesn’t look as great as we expected. And there’s also that intensity the second after the effect took place when you check that the camera was recording.
5. If your life was made into a horror film, what would it be called and who would play the starring role?
“Mommy don’t forget to pay your life insurance”. We would make a very demanding casting in which the survivor would get the role. He/she would play Macarena and me at the same time, in a sort of Mazinger Z’s Baron Ashura way.
