An Interview with Screenwriter Jonny Grant, The Dare

An Interview with Screenwriter Jonny Grant, The Dare

The Dare succeeds in shocking its audience with grisly, grotesque imagery exploiting humanity’s most irrational fears; succeeding in its simplicity to leave you traumatised! Co-writing this blood-soaked horror, screenwriter Jonny Grant breathes new life into the art of splatter – The Dare is definitely not for the squeamish!

“I really didn’t want to go down the route of violence for violence sake. I wanted our villain to be conducting these acts because they resonated deeply with him; the violence was personal to him and his past.”

YOU CANNOT KILL DAVID ARQUETTE in Cinemas (19 November) & Digital Download (23 November) from Blue Finch Film Releasing

David Arquette steps into the ring for a shockingly outrageous and wildly entertaining story of redemption, as the Hollywood actor makes a stunning return to professional wrestling. David Arquette entered the World Championship Wrestling (WCW) ring in 2000 to promote a movie… and left it as ‘the most hated man in wrestling’, after controversially winning the World Heavyweight Championship belt. Now, the actor is dangerously determined to redeem his reputation and reclaim his self-respect in the eyes of his wrestling heroes and the fans who consider him a joke.

“I’m just kind of sick of being a joke.”

Shirley (2020, USA) BFI London Film Festival 2020 Review

Shirley (2020, USA) London Film Festival 2020 Review

For some people, confronting a house full of ghosts might seem a more benign situation than braving a pack of judgemental housewives, especially in the 1950s, an era haunted by impossible standards for women. Finding herself amongst the snooty wives of academics, Shirley Jackson must often have been the target of their gossip and probably preferred to imagine herself trapped in ‘Hill House’. Jackson reputedly cultivated an interesting, if fearsome, persona – prickly, idiosyncratic, unkempt, contemptuous. She was tolerated in academic circles, being a successful author in her own right.

“Let’s pray for a boy. The world is too cruel to girls.”

The Dare (2019, Bulgaria / USA / UK) Lionsgate UK DVD Review

The Dare (2019, Bulgaria / USA / UK) Lionsgate UK DVD Review

Directed and co-written by Giles Alderson, The Dare could easily be dismissed as a copycat of the movies that led to the mid-2000s resurgence of the splatter subgenre; unfortunately labelled “torture porn” by film critics and horror detractors. James Wan and Leigh Whannell’s Saw (2004), and Eli Roth’s Hostel (2005) are both seen as the pinnacle of the subgenre; the first to be labelled “torture porn” due to their emphasis on extreme violence and sadism, and never surpassed by the countless thrillers that followed. But despite a certain familiarity, The Dare breathes new life into the art of splatter.

“Let the evil out.”
