We decided to celebrate Hallowe’en a couple of months early last week by inviting horror movie director Singh Lall to the Phoenix FM studios.
Singh, who is the curator of the Horror on Sea Video Club, is currently producing his first film, Video Shop Tales of Terror. He came in to chat to Natalie Bays and Spencer Hawken about the concept, based on a sinister video rental store which is the portal to six tales of terror.
This isn’t the first time he’s had a horror-related brush with Brentwood – he also starred in the zombie film Made In Essex, which saw hundreds of zombies (or maybe actors) rush up and down the High Street one Sunday morning a few years ago.
He explained how the movie is an anthology horror in the classic style of horror studios from the past – but with a twist. You’ll have to wait until next year to see it though, as it’s due for a 2023 release.
You can hear Singh talk more about his ideas on phoenixfm.com – and the local arts scene is discussed in depth on our airwaves by hosts Claire Gevaux and Natalie Bays every Sunday at 4pm.
