Interview with the Directors of ‘Summer of 84,’ Roadkill Super Star | Horror Movie News Ep 38

Popcorn Talk Network proudly presents “Horror Movie News,” a show giving out the latest news on Horror movies as well as exclusive interviews, bloody fun segments and movie reviews.

“The Horror genre never dies. It just keeps getting reinvented and it always will. Horror is a universal language; we’re all afraid. We’re born afraid, we’re all afraid of things: death, disfigurement, loss of a loved one. Everything that I’m afraid of, you’re afraid of and vice versa. So everybody feels fear and suspense.”- John Carpenter

Today’s episode:
The Horrorites are interviewing the Directing collective behind the cult classic ‘Turbo Kid,’ Roadkill Super Star (RKSS) Francois Simard, Anouk Whissell, and Yoann-Karl Whissell.  François Simard, Anouk Whissell, and Yoann-Karl Whissell are Montreal-based filmmakers and co-founders of the writer/director triforce RKSS. François Simard and Anouk Whissell studied traditional animation in school, and Yoann-Karl Whissell has a background in theatre arts. Their debut feature—the critically acclaimed ‘Turbo Kid’, premiered at Sundance in 2015, launching a very successful festival run and winning 24 awards worldwide (including the SXSW’s Audience Midnighters Award, BiFan’s Best Directors, Sitges’ Carnet Jove for Best Feature and Best Original Soundtrack, as well as a Saturn Award for Best International Film.) Through ‘Turbo Kid,’ the trio, thriving on passion, has successfully touched the hearts of all generations far beyond the genre and cult fans. This year, they have the great honor to be returning to Sundance, where it all started, for the World Premiere of their second feature entitled ‘Summer of 84.’

Gunpowder & Sky will release the thriller SUMMER OF 84 in theaters on August 10, 2018, and available on VOD and Digital HD on August 24, 2018.
