The Twentieth FrightFest is here so obviously our exclusive interview feature Five FrightFest Facts From… is back with a vengeance. Below we hear from Tanya Klein & Jim Cirile (Writers/Exec Producers) of TO YOUR LAST DEATH and you can read more FrightFest Facts from 2019 and beyond by clicking HERE.
1. Tell us about your film?
TO YOUR LAST DEATH is a hand drawn, 2D, animated horror film. And it is (as of now – we’re hoping it might catch on) the only one of its kind in the US.
After emerging as the sole survivor in a deadly revenge game set up by her father to punish his children, Miriam receives an offer from a supernatural entity to go back in time and try again. Now, Miriam must survive both her father’s blood lust and the Gamemaster’s ever-changing rules to save her siblings as she relives the worst night of her life.
2. How did you get into making horror movies?
We like the genre because you have a lot of creative freedom. More so than in most other genres because you can go completely crazy (sometimes literally).
3. What film would you love to see screened at FrightFest and why?
We are looking forward to seeing all of the amazing films there. It is actually kind of a bummer that we can’t see all of them – time won’t permit it. But we couldn’t come up with a better lineup if we tried. Hence, our answer has to be: the current lineup!
4. If you could create your own award to give at the FrightFest, what would it be and why?
We definitely deserve the “perseverance” award. It’s been a long road to get this movie made. At times it felt like pushing the proverbial boulder up a mountain. We are so thrilled to be premiering this movie and for the world to finally get to see it.
5. If your life was made into a horror film, what would it be called and who would play the starring role?
“Insomnia” is the very first title that comes to mind. Starring in it… hmmm…. it would have to be an actress with hair like an exploding pillow (which is the closest to my look) and I can’t think of one. Let’s just go with: anyone who can play over-caffeinated really well.
