Director Darren Lynn Bousman is a name that horror movie fans should be well acquainted with. Primarily known for his work helming three of the Saw sequels (as well as the Chris Rock formulated next installment), he’s a talented voice that has managed to bring his talents to engaging and gory films on varying scales. Now, with a new effort in Death of Me being releases this Friday, he was kind enough to take some time out to discuss the genre with me. Bousman is surprisingly candid and frank, too, unafraid of chatting about the lows of his career, as opposed to just the highs. I think it made for a really interesting interview, though of course you all can be the judge now…
Below, you can hear my conversation with Bousman. Horror fans should get a kick out of this one, as you get in the mind of a horror filmmaker. Bousman has crafted fright flicks of all shapes and sizes, so picking his brain was a terrific opportunity. He even gives the briefest of hints about next year’s Spiral: From the Book of Saw (delayed from this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, of course), which was very exciting for me. Give the interview a listen and keep an eye out for Death of Me, available to watch tomorrow On Demand and in select theaters.
Enjoy my interview with Darren Lynn Bousman!
DEATH OF ME is available In Theaters, On Demand and Digital October 2nd.
