The Complex is a unique Sc-Horror out now across the globe on PC, PS4, Xbox One & Nintendo Switch and we were lucky enough to lock down some of the cast and crew to take part in our exclusive interview.
Following Black Mirror’s ‘Bandersnatch’ and BAFTA-winning game Late Shift – THE COMPLEX is written by Lynn Renee Maxcy, part of the Emmy award-winning writing team from The Handmaid’s Tale and is the very first live interactive Science Fiction film and one of only a small number of interactive films in existence.
THE COMPLEX is directed by visionary new talent Paul Raschid (White Chamber) and stars Michelle Mylett (Letterkenny, Bad Blood), Kate Dickie (Game of Thrones, The Witch), Al Weaver (Grantchester) and Twitch streamer and former Xbox UK presenter, Leah Viathan. The film’s award-winning team includes Oscar-nominated Production Designer Guy Thompson (Black Sheep) and internationally acclaimed DOP Matthias Pilz (Top Boy).
The interactive film is highly unique in that it offers multi-optional storytelling with 8 different outcomes; a real-time Relationship Status Tracking that influences the story as you play and a real-time Personality Trait Tracking that evolves based on your choices.
Check out the trailer below:
We set the lead actress of The Complex Michelle Mylett some Tricky Questions to celebrate the realise of her amazing movie.
1. How did you get into acting?
I was involved as a kid just in school and stuff then once I graduated I got an agent and started taking classes/auditioning.
2. What was the best bit of filming The Complex?
Meeting all the lovely cast and crew…I know thats such a stock answer but honest to god the group of crazy brits I got to hang out with were so funny and unreal. It was also my first time ever filming in Europe! Definitely a bucket list moment.
3. What was the last great game you played?
Ok so heres the thing…i’m not a huge gamer BUT I played Mario Kart with my friend Evan last summer and he plays all the time and was so smug and I ended up beating him and he was so mad! It was the best.
4. If you were locked down in a laboratory like the characters in The Complex who would you want to be trapped with?
My dog, Clementine…she great for boosting moral.
5. What’s your favourite Horror film and why?
‘The Silence of the Lambs” is one of my favourite movies of all time regardless of genre…for me its Jodi Foster at her best. The scene where Buffalo Bill is trying on the woman suit will forever haunt my dreams.
6. What’s next for you?
I’m on a TV series called “Letterkenny” and we’re supposed to be on a North American live tour right now…40 shows….BUT everything is on lockdown at the moment so we had to postpone and come home. Assuming that the world starts up again, ill be filming a new season in the summer and we will be finishing the remaining 30 shows of the live tour as well. Time will tell.
THE COMPLEX is a completely live action, interactive sci-fi thriller filmed in the UK. Available Worldwide on PC, PS4, Xbox One & Nintendo Switch NOW.
