As April rolls on, we continue to spotlight those fantastic genre filmmakers destined to one day be Junkfood Cinema legends. This week, we discuss the director/writer tandem of Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett. These Modern Junkfood masters have been massively heralded at every festival in which their films have appeared, but an ugly behind-the-scenes corporate merger disrupted what should have been their mainstream breakout.
Cargill and I discuss the strange story of You’re Next (along with why we love it), we wax poetic about A Horrible Way to Die, and we are mesmerized by Downtown Abs-ey’s Dan Stevens in The Guest. We wrap up the show explaining how their small, but powerful body of work makes Adam & Simon the perfect team to remake I Saw the Devil.
