Arriving in select theaters this weekend, and available on Blu-Ray & VOD next week, is In Fear. The film stars Iain de Caestecker (Agents of S.H.I.EL.D.) and Alice Englert (Ginger & Rosa) as a hopeful new couple who find themselves faced with an evening of confusion and, well, fear on their way to a musical festival. Director Jeremy Lovering practiced a unique method while shooting the film, providing the actors with only a bare bones script, leaving them in a state of suspense, and attempting to capture that ambiance on film.
I recently had the opportunity to jump on the phone for an exclusive interview with Jeremy Lovering. During our extended conversation he talked about this experimental method of film making, the aesthetic of the film, the challenges of shooting a film inside a car, balancing horror with relationship drama, and why the actors were right for the parts. He also talked about his experience shooting Sherlock, the fan reaction, and what it was like to shoot Sherlock and Watson’s highly anticipated reunion scene. Check out what he had to say after the jump and take a look at the In Fear Facebook page to see where you can watch the film in cinemas.
