If You’re looking for a movie that thinks outside the box, and will keep you guessing until the end then you have to check out Limbo.

The film is directed by Mark Young, and follows Jimmy [Lew Temple] whose on trial for murder. The Catch is, his trial is in hell, and he’s fighting to get into heaven. 

Richard Riehle who plays a demon named Phil, talked to PopCornTalk about why this movie is a must see and why he chose to be part of the film.  

“I found the script really intriguing, with lots of twists and turns. The casting director was somebody I worked with before several times, and she sent me the script and said, I think there’s a character that you would like doing, would you be interested? I read the script, and said absolutely.” 

Richard’s character brings the comedic relief  into the dark film, which is something he loved about playing Phil

“What makes this character so wonderful is that he has such joy in being in hell. He continuously says I love you to people.” Riehle states, “Mark wrote all these great jokes, in fact he wrote so many he couldn’t fit them all in the story.” 

The movie also stars James Purefoy, Veronica Cartwright and Scottie Thompson; with such an ensemble cast, the director wanted to make this film different from any other films out there. 

“Mark, did a really interesting thing. He did most of the directing away from the 4 of us that were in the room all the time, so you never knew exactly what was going to happen when each character came in, and you just had to respond to whatever they gave you.”

Richard says you’ll love film, but make sure when watching to expect the unexpected.  

“People are going to enjoy the heck out of it. It’s a great story that takes you on this ride with so many different unexpected flashes of ideas. When you finally think you figured it out, and it’s all done, then it does a whole 180 degree twist on you, so nothing that you expected was really what the story was about.”

Make sure to check out Limbo, the film is out right now.
