An Interview with Director Joe Ahearne, B&B, The Replacement

An Interview with Director Joe Ahearne, B&B, The Replacement

Joe Ahearne is a British writer and director whose TV miniseries The Replacement was shown on the BBC in 2017 to a warm reception. I caught up with him to chat about this and his other project, the horror/thriller film called B&B.

“This was the first time I’d written something where I was determined that the gay guys were absolutely going to be the stars, and it was sort of a genre piece as well. I was definitely interesting in doing something that had some kind of fantasy or horror.”

The Haunting of Hill House Triple Threat: 1959 Book vs. 1963 Film vs. 2018 Netflix Series

The Haunting of Hill House Triple Threat

I needed to know for myself how far Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House had diverged from the 1959 book and if it had actually improved on it. So I read the book first and then watched the 1963 film, The Haunting, which I’d heard was a classic. I must admit I enjoyed both of them – and found them very different from one another – so I decided that so I decided that all three needed to be compared.

Castlevania (2018, USA) Season 2 Review

Castlevania (2018, USA) Season 2 Review

Netflix have done a brilliant job at exploring the Castlevania story with this season, which is twice the length of the first and has a lot more Dracula. For anyone who didn’t see the first season there’s only two things you need to know: First- Dracula has declared war on the human race after the Church killed his wife. Second- Trevor Belmont (the last descendant of the famous monster fighting family) and Sypha Belnades (a witch) have joined forces with Alucard (Dracula’s son) to defeat the vampire lord himself.

“In killing my wife, humanity has proven to me that they don’t deserve the Earth… We will scour them off the land!”

The Haunting of Hill House (2018, USA) Season 1 Review

The Haunting of Hill House (2018)

People have been raving about this Netflix series for a while now. Even Stephen King has praised it, so I’ve given it a go. The Netflix series differs from the novel. The advantage of only being loosely based on the novel is with the differences the Netflix series has made. Eleanor “Nell” Vance, for example, was the main character in the novel, but by mid-season the dynamic changes, so you don’t know what is going to happen.

“A ghost can be a lot of things. A memory, a daydream, a secret. Grief, anger, guilt. But, in my experience, most times they’re just what we want to see.”

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (2018, USA) Season 1 Review

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

In the original series you could really root for Sabrina as she learns witchcraft and all the negative aspects that came with it but here the stakes are much higher, not just regarding whether she will be a mortal or witch, but to be a witch she has to sign her name in Satan’s book and he could call on her at any time. There’s a stronger sense of Sabrina’s desperation to learn about her family history and what had happened to her parents, along with the struggles of being a half witch, giving the series a bit of a Harry Potter feel, even though the original Sabrina comics and 90s series predate it.

“Happy birthday, witch.”
