With director Antonio Campos adaptation of Donald Ray Pollack’s award-winning novel The Devil All the Time now streaming on Netflix, I recently spoke to Harry Melling and Pokey LaFarge about making the film. During the interview, they talked about what people would be surprised to learn about making a movie, memorable moments from filming, how Melling got ready for his sermon in the church, and more.
If you’re not familiar with The Devil All the Time, the star-studded drama takes place in rural, post-World War II Ohio through the Vietnam war and features a number of sinister characters you’d never want to meet. The film features a crooked sheriff (Sebastian Stan), an unholy preacher (Robert Pattinson), the twisted couple (Jason Clarke and Riley Keough), a young man (Tom Holland) who loses both his parents (Bill Skarsgård and Haley Bennett), and a number of other characters played by Mia Wasikowska and Eliza Scanlen.
Check out what they had to say in the player below and further down is exactly what we talked about. For more on The Devil All the Time, you can watch the trailer here and here’s my interview with Bill Skarsgård and director Antonio Campos.
