Neil Marshall, Bryan Bertino, Robert Ben Garant and Tom Lennon – Exclusive Video Interviews

     August 6, 2007

Posted below are just about the last of my video interviews that were done at this year’s Comic-Con.But rather than post each one as an individual article, I decided to group them together as they were done at the same time.

The other reason why I wanted to post them all together is that each person is a writer/director of their project and they were all produced by the same movie studio – Focus/Rogue Pictures.

Anyway, Neil Marshall was promoting “Doomsday,” Bryan Bertino was promoting “The Strangers,” and Robert Ben Garant and Tom Lennon “Balls of Fury.” I think you’ll enjoy all of them, highlights of what was said are above each interview. Of course a big thank you to everyone at Rogue/Focus for giving me some time with each of the filmmakers!
