Hello folks! Today I’m interviewing indie horror filmmaker Richard Griffin about the next project he’s working on. The Walk-in Clinic of Dr Moreau.
So, what the hell is The Walk-in Clinic of Dr. Moreau anyway? Let’s find out. 🙂
IF THE WALK-IN CLINIC OF DR. MOREAU WERE AN ICE-CREAM FLAVOR, WHAT WOULD IT BE AND WHY?
RG: Tutti-Frutti! It has a little bit of everything that makes something delicious. It has comedy, gore, action, monsters, mad scientists, beautiful women, beautiful men, really bad puns and so much more!
JA: I’m a big fan of your movies, Nun of That and Disco Exorcist in particular. Part of that is how you play with the time period cliches of when the story is set.
What time period is the Clinic of Dr. Moreau going to be set in?
RG: The Walk-In Clinic of Dr. Moreau is not set in any particular period, but will have a distinctly mid 70s vibe, not only due to the costumes and locations, but mainly due to the fact we’ll be shooting on film, and we’ll be lighting it to give it that real, honest-to-goodness grindhouse charm.
What has drawn you to that time period?
I imagine it has something to do with the fact that I was born in 1970, and I’ve always been in love with the music, fashions and movies of that time period. The funny thing is, I’ve never felt that my movies were homages to films made during the 70s/80s, but more that they’re just period pieces.
Also, and I think a lot of directors of horror and suspense will tell you, it’s hard to craft thrillers in a time where everyone has a cell phone!
Can you tell me a little bit more about the premise behind The Walk-in Clinic of Dr. Moreau?
What are some of your main influences in creating this film?
What made you decide to make this movie on 16mm film?
If you were shipwrecked on the Island of Dr. Moreau, how long do you think you would survive?
If you didn’t make it off the island, what would be your undoing?
