WHAT TO WATCH ON NETFLIX // EPISODE 35 - STEPHEN VOLK (Writer of GHOSTWATCH) JED Talks

    • TV & Film

Getting to talk to the man that has heavily influenced my own writing was a real honour. Ghostwatch was a 1992 BBC Halloween TV show that, as a child, shook me to the very core. It opened my mind to just what was possible with horror and this interview revealed so many nuggets of Ghostwatch GOLD, I wasnt sure if I could truly call myself a fan anymore as I had no idea how many layers this onion really had.

We speak about alternative casting (Sarah Greene was not first choice!)

We speak about potential sequels to GHOSTWATCH

and we discuss the show's influence on horror as a whole.

In my mind, Stephen is a complete genius but I will never forgive him for making me afraid to go into the corner of my bedroom for the last two decades. Hope you enjoy and you can find out more about Stephen at his website http://www.stephenvolk.net/ and on twitter https://twitter.com/Stevevolkwriter.

Next week I speak to an amazing actress and director about her new Netflix film, so see you then!
